White House correspondent Peter Doocy’s questioning about President Joe Biden’s apparent cognitive lapses has caused press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to evade providing a real answer.
Biden’s recent gaffe in Nevada, where he inaccurately described a meeting with a deceased world leader, has raised concerns among reporters and voters.
Despite attempts to defend Biden’s actions, the administration’s evasive responses suggest a growing awareness of his cognitive decline.
Doocy grills KJP after Biden said he recently met with a dead former president of France:
"How is Biden going to convince 3/4 of voters that his mental acuity is OK when he told a story about recently talking to a French president who died 1996?" pic.twitter.com/fVsE3elDpv

The ongoing efforts to shield Biden only serve to highlight the Democrats’ struggle to explicitly defend his competence.
