‘That Is Your Judgment!’: President Biden Gets Angry With Reporters Over Age Concerns From Special Counsel Report 

This doesn't make anything any better....

A press conference turned confrontational after a special counsel report accused President Joe Biden of having “diminished capacities,” including memory loss, USA Today reported. 

President Biden’s age has become a primary concern ahead of the 2024 election season. With the report adding fuel to the already growing rumors, Biden became visibly upset after questions about his memory took over the conversation. After CNN’s MJ Lee alluded to American voters “watching” and expressing concern over his age, things became hasty.

“That is your judgment. That is your judgment. That is not the judgment of the press,” Biden said in response. 

The reporter followed up with remarks Biden made in December 2023:

“In December, you told me that there are many Democrats that could defeat Donald Trump,” the reporter said.

“So why does it have to be you now?”

Biden provided a simple response before moving on to the next media professional:

“Cause I’m the most qualified person in this country to be President of the United States and finish the job I started.” 

The 46th President continued his confrontational media responses after Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked “How bad is your memory? And can you continue as president?”

Biden shot back with “My memory is so bad I let you speak.” 

Shortly after defending his mental ability and age, the President continued with his press conference by mistakenly referring to the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as the President of Mexico.

On Feb. 8, Biden was exonerated from charges over keeping classified documents but a report from Justice Department special counsel, Robert Hur, said in part it was due to Biden’s “poor memory.” Biden pushed back saying the accusations have “no place in this report.”

“My memory is fine,” Biden said. “Take a look at what I’ve done since I’ve become president.” 

The report further attacked the President’s memory on a personal level in regards to the death of his own son, Beau Biden, who passed away in 2015. Hur referred to Biden’s in-office in the report and claimed “Mr. Biden’s memory was worse,” accusing him of not remembering his days of being a senator or Vice President.

“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?’)” the report stated.  

“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”
