President Joe Biden on Thursday attempted to clean up a mess that started with the release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s damning report regarding his handling of classified documents and his memory. It did not go well.

Hur found Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials” — including classified documents related to national security and “sensitive intelligence sources and methods” — in his home, garage, and office for decades.

But in a classic example of the two-tiered system of justice under his administration, Biden won’t be charged because he’s a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” and it would be difficult to get a jury to convict somebody that feeble.

That’s not us opining. That is literally the conclusion Hur and his investigation came to.

According to the report, Biden “did not remember when he was vice president” or “when his son Beau died,” and exhibited “diminished faculties” and “significant limitations” during his interview with the special counsel.

The evidence of the President’s obvious diminishing mental faculties, by any measure, is incredibly alarming.

Report On Biden’s Mental Acuity Is An Abject Disaster

Former President Donald Trump offered a good point in a social media post when commenting on the special counsel’s explanation that Biden would escape charges because he’d played the “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” card.

Trump explained that the classified documents were “willfully” obtained by Biden both as vice president and as a senator, well before his mental struggles had been cemented.

“Biden took the Documents in his ‘mental primetime,’” he wrote. “He shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this, and he wasn’t protected by the Presidential Records Act.”

That’s correct, he shouldn’t get away with it. But of course, he has. What he didn’t get away with is the fact that Hur’s report indicates the President of the United States, the man with the nuclear codes, was deemed too senile to stand trial.

Sensing how damning that information is for his re-election campaign, Biden stepped out into public to defend his cognitive issues, even calling on reporters outside the list his handlers usually provide.

Enter Fox News reporter Peter Doocy who managed to morph feeble Biden into animated and angry “get off my lawn” Biden with his memory questions.

“Something the special counsel said in his report is that one of the reasons you were not charged is because, in his description, you are a ‘well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,’” Doocy said.

“I’m well-meaning and I’m an elderly man and I know what the hell I’m doing,” Biden shot back. “I’ve been president and I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation-“

Put the country back on its feet? He can’t even keep himself on his feet.

We now live in an age where the President of the United States is so diminished mentally that he has to hold a press conference to assure the American people he “knows what the hell he is doing.”

President Biden even sparred with reporters from normally compliant media outlets about his memory.

An exchange with CNN correspondent MJ Lee became particularly combative when she said, “Many American people have been watching, and they have expressed concerns about your age.”

“That is your judgment!” Biden shouted while wagging a defiant finger at her. “That is your judgment! That is not the judgment of the press.”

First of all, that is the judgment of the American people, not the press. It’s telling that Biden simply wants the adoration of the media and nothing else.

Second, an NBC News poll shows three-quarters of voters, including half of Democrats, say that they have concerns about Biden’s mental and physical health.

Biden Defends His Memory, Promptly Forgets Things

By any measuring stick, President Biden’s “my memory is fine” press conference was an abject disaster. Not solely from the angry and defensive tone indicating that there is something there to get angry and defensive about, but because it featured several key indications that yes, his memory is a huge problem.

Biden began by referring to Egyptian President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi as the “president of Mexico.” A Mexican President that he apparently convinced to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza.

“As you know, initially, the president of Mexico Sisi [sic] did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in [to Gaza]. I talked to him. I convinced him to open the gate,” Biden said.

Then, speaking on the matter of his son Beau’s death – which Hur stated in his report that Biden could not remember what year he died – the President appeared to forget the name of the church where a rosary that he wears “every day” in his honor came from.

“Let me tell you something. Some of you have commented. I wear, since the day he died every single day, the rosary he got from our Lady of …” he said, leaving everybody on the edge of their seats.

Rounding out his disastrous public showing, President Biden in separate remarks to Democrats, declared that he was a man who represents red and “green” states and discussed the famous landmark abortion case, “Roe v. Word.”

“I said I’m gonna be a president for everybody, whether you live in a red state or a green state,” Biden claimed.

And, of course, “Roe v. Word,” a little-known Hip Hop interpretation of the case.

All of this comes during a week in which President Biden’s mental difficulties have been at the forefront after he twice claimed to have spoken with former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who died in 2017, about the January 6th riot at the Capitol in 2021, and insisted that he had spoken with former French President François Mitterrand who died in 1996.
