Democrats are increasingly concerned about President Biden’s mental acuity following the release of a special counsel report.

The report alleged that Biden forgot key details during interviews, leading to questions about his fitness to lead.

Biden’s press conference after the report’s release saw him defending himself against reporters’ inquiries about his ability to lead the country.

“I think these questions now are going to come more to the fore,” Harold Ford Jr. said. “This was a tough night for the president, and I think many in the Democratic Party, which is my party, are going to have serious questions going forward about what this means.”

“This last night will be the closing ad in a campaign against President Biden as we get to November,” he said.

“The question is, are Democrats willing to go forward between now and November with a candidate that many in the country may not think is up to the job for four more [years]?” he added.

“The president’s lost his fastball,” Ford said. “President Biden last night, I think even in that interview, even in the press conference there, demonstrated to a lot of Americans what Mr. Hur wrote.”

“But as of right now, I think Democrats are going to have to grapple with this over the next several weeks and few months,” he said. “And there are a few elders in the party that can perhaps have this conversation, and we’ll see if they do.”

While some Democrats are worried about the implications, far-left media outlets have come to Biden’s defense, dismissing concerns about his mental state as ageism.

However, the report has sparked political repercussions and raised doubts about Biden’s fitness for office, with some outlets defending him while others highlighted concerns regarding his mental fitness.

“Do you want to get into the age thing? Let’s call it what it is. This is ageism snuck into a report clearing the person of any wrongdoing,” MSNBC’s Ari Melber said. “If you want to get the ageism, young people are told all the time by their lawyers, ‘Hey, you’re way better off leaning into “I don’t recall” than possibly misstating something to a federal officer or under oath in this case.’ So it’s a lot of derogatory stuff.”

“And I do think, and I want to be clear, a credit to the president that he chose to do fast cooperation. I think that’s good for the system. Politically, though, it’s now being used against him,” he added.

“In terms of its political repercussions, the way the news happened today, the questions being asked [of] him by multiple figures there. And in the end, what makes it such a useful political tool for people that want Donald Trump to be elected or want [Biden] not to be re-elected is that the fact that his age is not something you can rebut,” MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said. “If someone says you’re too far left, you can tack to the center. The man is 80 years old!”

“He rides a bike!” Rachel Maddow cut in.

“The fact they’re defending Joe Biden’s mental state when 76% of the American people, by NBC news polls’ own standard, don’t think he has the mental fitness to be president now, let alone five years from now, when he would still be president if he won re-election,” Fox News’ Joe Concha said.
