Republicans accused of ‘pouncing’ on Biden’s memory lapses

Democrats were outraged that someone noticed something obvious to anyone who has ever watched Biden speak.

President Joe Biden is too old and incompetent to stand trial for mishandling classified documents, according to a report from the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department to oversee the case.

Biden presented himself during interviews as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” who repeatedly forgot key details about his own life, Special Counsel Robert Hur wrote in the bombshell report.

Democrats and their allies in the media were outraged that Hur noticed something plainly obvious to anyone who has ever watched Biden speak in public.

Left-wing journalists covered the news the way they always do when something bad happens to a Democrat—they accused Republicans of “pouncing” and “seizing.”

The New York Times wrote: “Republicans pounce on report that puts spotlight on Biden’s memory lapses.” Axios reported: “Trump, Haley seize on Biden special counsel report.”

It would have been more accurate to say that Biden and his defenders “pounced” on the special counsel for his blunt description of the president’s cognitive decline.

Biden held an emergency press conference Thursday evening to insist that he was, in fact, competent to stand trial for mishandling classified information.

Biden scolded critics for questioning his memory, then proceeded to mix up Egypt and Mexico while discussing Hamas, the terrorist group whose name he couldn’t remember earlier this week.

One Democratic lawmaker told Axios the White House should not have scheduled the press conference “that late at night.” (It was 7:45 p.m.)

After the release of the special counsel’s report, former Republican presidential candidate and Trump supporter Vivek Ramaswamy told Fox News that he was convinced the Democrats will replace Biden with Michelle Obama on their 2024 presidential ticket.
