President Joe Biden’s fitness to lead the nation has become a subject of increasing concern among the public, and recently, retired U.S. Army General Paul Vallely shared his concerns about Biden’s condition. Here’s what he said.
Talking to the media, Vallely said, “Biden’s physical and mental capacity seems to diminish with each passing month.”
Vallely went on to describe it as “embarrassing to have a leader who appears so infirm on the world stage.”
Dr. Gabe Mirkin, a renowned longevity expert, has also weighed in on the matter, drawing attention to the changes in President Biden’s physical appearance over the past two years.
Wrinkled and Gaunt
He pointed out that the president’s face has shown “significantly increased wrinkling and loss of facial fat,” which are indicative of advanced aging.
Dr. Carole Lieberman, a forensic psychiatrist based in Beverly Hills with experience in assessing mental competency, highlighted President Biden’s cognitive issues, which she believes have been worsening.
She shared concerns about “memory loss or lapses, rambling speech, poor impulse control, and irritability.”
Asleep on the Job
Over time, President Biden has been captured on camera, appearing to fall asleep during public events and making notable factual errors.
These lapses include referring to his wife as the vice president, mixing up countries like Ukraine and Iran, and erroneously stating that his son died in Iraq.
An anonymous Democratic lawmaker expressed fears of a “nightmare scenario” where President Biden secures the nomination but is unable to continue due to health concerns.
“Wasting Away in Office”
Sources within the administration have also voiced concerns about the stress President Biden is facing and its impact on his health.
One insider shared that the “challenges Biden faces are assuredly pushing Joe to the edge and raising his blood pressure,” lamenting that he is “wasting away in office rather than receiving the care he deserves.”
Reports have emerged indicating that President Biden’s personal team is actively working to prevent public incidents of stumbling and falling.
There are fears that a high-profile fall could occur in the weeks leading up to the November 2024 election, potentially dealing a significant blow to his campaign.
Some senior Democrats have expressed private frustrations with President Biden’s advance team, citing incidents like the sandbag mishap at the Air Force Academy and the president’s apparent disorientation after speaking at a podium.
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “Everyone knows Biden’s mental capacity is a serious issue! Biden and his so-called handlers have and continue to destroy the America we once knew.”
Being Fed the Answers
Another user added, “Why are we in America standing by tolerating this behavior by our government to conceal and ignore the facts that the leader of our country is cognitively compromised affecting Americans’ lives and our credibility throughout the world.”
A third user commented, “Notice how Biden is asked a question and there’s the big pause while his handlers feed him the answer? The light isn’t very bright and nobody’s home.”
A fourth user wrote, “Remember the intense demands that Trump take a mental acuity test? Seems that that was OK. What about the current president?”
