In an extraordinary article published on Sunday by the New York Times, a trio of investigative reporters reveal what life is really like inside the Biden White House, alleging the president is slow to make decisions and is given to outbursts of frustration, “often laced with profanity.” “He will,” they wrote, “often snap.”
Based on more than two dozen interviews with current and former Biden associates, the reporters learned that staffers spend an inordinate amount of time preparing Biden for public appearances: “His aides say it takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work to prepare him to project an assured demeanor.”
Additionally, Biden reportedly has “little patience with staffers,” wrote the authors, being increasingly “quick to cut off conversations” and “even occasionally hangs up the phone on someone who he thinks is wasting his time.” He is also “quick to demonstrate his displeasure” with those who cannot answer his questions.
According to the article, Biden’s staff schedules 15-minute breaks between his daily appointments, apparently because he becomes exhausted quickly, despite a light daily schedule. He typically arrives in the Oval Office around 9:30 in the morning and usually is back in his residence by 7:00 pm.
The authors added:
On policy issues, Mr. Biden, 78, takes days or weeks to make up his mind as he examines and second-guesses himself and others. It is a method of governing that can feel at odds with the urgency of a country still reeling from a pandemic and an economy struggling to recover.
Each of these examples is a telltale sign of dementia, perhaps leading to Alzheimer’s disease. The following signs of early stage Alzheimer’s is drawn from the Alzheimer’s Association and the Mayo Clinic:
One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s disease, especially in the early stages, is forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events, asking for the same questions over and over, and increasingly needing to rely on memory aids (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices)….
[Those suffering from the disease] may have difficulty concentrating and take much longer to do things than they did before….
People living with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons, and the passage of time … sometimes they may forget where they are or how they got there….
They may stop in the middle of a conversation and have no idea how to continue, or they may repeat themselves … sometimes having trouble finding the right word… they may confuse words, get frustrated or angry, and act in unexpected ways….
They may experience mood and personality changes. They may become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful, or anxious. They may be easily upset….
Biden’s mental decline has become so obvious that a virtual cottage industry has sprung up, iterating his many and increasingly frequent “gaffs” or lapses. Here is a link to hundreds of YouTube videos exploiting Biden’s behaviors. Some are funny, some are awkward, some are embarrassing, and some are dangerous.
So think more than 200 retired flag officers who expressed their concerns in the open letter they published a week ago:
The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored. He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night.
Recent Democrat leadership’s inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge. We must always have an unquestionable chain of command.
The question remains: Why did the Times expose the declining mental capacity of their Commander-in-Chief? The media has worked overtime to hide Biden’s failing mental acuity, until now. Is this the first move to remove him from office under the 25th Amendment?
All good questions. What isn’t in question is Biden’s accelerating mental decline.
