President Biden faced tough questions from reporters following the release of a report questioning his mental acuity.

He clashed with several reporters, defending his memory and qualifications.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy said to Biden, “Something the special counsel said in his report is that one of the reasons you were not charged is because, in his description, you are a ‘well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.'”

“I’m well-meaning and I’m an elderly man and I know what the hell I’m doing,” answered Biden.

“I’ve been president and I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation.” he continued.

“How bad is your memory? And can you continue as president?” asked Doocy

“My memory is so bad I let you speak,” quipped Biden.

CNN’s MJ Lee said, “Many [of the] American people have been watching, and they have expressed concerns about your age.”

“That is your judgment!” barked Biden.

“That is your judgment! That is not the judgment of the press,” he added.

“They’ve expressed concerns about your mental acuity,” pressed Lee.

“They say that you’re too old. Mr. President, you told me in December that you believe there are many Democrats who could defeat Donald Trump. So why does it have to be you now?” she asked.

“Because I’m the most qualified person in this country to be President of the United States and finish the job I started,” replied Biden

“I did not share classified information… I guarantee you,” Biden insisted.

Biden explained, “The fact of the matter is, is what I didn’t want repeated- I didn’t want him to not- I didn’t read it to him… I had written a long memorandum to President Obama why we should not be in Afghanistan. And it was multiple pages.”

“And so, while I was referring to- I said classified, I should have said, it should be private because it was a contact between the president and vice president as to what was going on. That’s what he was referring to. It was not classified information in that document. That was not classified,” he added.

The report concluded that he had a “hazy” memory and had shared classified information with his ghostwriter.

Special Counsel Robert Hur wrote, “In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse,” the report states. “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,” his report continued.

“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,” added Hur.

This has raised concerns about his ability to seek a second term as president.
