Biden Draws Further Concern After Short 14-Minute Speech in Wisconsin

On Monday, President Joe Biden delivered a brief speech in Wisconsin that lasted only 14 minutes long, a relatively short duration for presidential remarks, especially in an election year.  As Biden concluded his speech, he let out an audible cough and shuffled off-stage.

Public moments like this, highlighting what many believe is a deteriorating physical and mental state, have been a consistent occurrence throughout Biden’s term. These highly publicized moments are undoubtedly a challenge for Biden’s reelection campaign.

As the presidential election approaches, it is becoming increasingly apparent to many voters that Joe Biden’s elderly age may hinder his ability to fulfill the duties of the executive branch, as evidenced by the short speech and shuffling around the stage.

Countless polls have demonstrated that the vast majority of Americans believe Joe Biden is too old to serve another term in the Oval Office.  According to a recent poll from ABC News and Ipsos, a whopping 86% of Americans believe the 81-year-old president is too old to be reelected.

RNC Research, an X account run by the Republican National Committee, uploaded footage of the conclusion of Biden’s short Wisconsin speech.  Users in the comments section called out the president’s elderly behavior, which is no surprise at this point in his term, as such instances have become ubiquitous.

“After just 14 minutes of remarks in Wisconsin (in which he pledged another multi-billion-dollar giveaway), Biden lets out a cough and shuffles off the stage. Biden left his Delaware home at 10:30a ET this morning,” RNC Research wrote in the caption.

“Amazing. President of the United States and isn’t sure if he’s supposed to leave the stage, or where he’s supposed to go, but can’t figure out how to get off the stage anyway,” one user pointed out, addressing a common concern that Biden often looks confused and uncertain when on stage.  Watch the footage below:

Earlier this year, the findings of Special Counsel Robert Hur were released, which partly concluded that Joe Biden should not be criminally charged for his mishandling of classified documents because of his elderly age and complications with memory.  The report was particularly damaging for the Biden campaign as it was an official government report corroborating the speculation of many American voters.

Hur said, “We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory . . . It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him—by then a former president well into his eighties of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

The report further added:

“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (“if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?”), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (“in 2009, am I still Vice President?”), He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.

And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him. Among other things, he mistakenly said he “had a real difference” of opinion with General Karl Eikenberry, when, in fact, Eikenberry was an ally whom Mr. Biden cited approvingly in his Thanksgiving memo to President Obama.

In a case where the government must prove that Mr. Biden knew he had possession of the classified Afghanistan documents after the vice presidency and chose to keep those documents, knowing he was violating the law, we expect that at trial, his attorneys would emphasize these limitations in his recall.”
