There long has been speculation that Joe Biden isn’t really doing the work of being president, based on his random loss of his train of thought while speaking, his inability to respond to questions, his gaffes, blunders and more.
His apparent loss of cognitive ability is openly discussed.
WND reported only days ago that his presidency was considered to be “teetering” because, as Rep. Madison Cawthorn explained, his “mental decline” is on full display so that even “our enemies now see it.”
And now, an analysis by Fox News notes Biden is admitting a significant portion of that idea, even if not all.
It’s because Biden repeatedly has indicated his advisers are setting the rules for him, when he can talk, when he can take questions and when he can answer.
The analysis explained it began with Biden’s first formal White House press conference last January, when he began to name specific reporters who would be allowed to ask a question.
On Sunday he said he wasn’t “supposed to take any questions” during a news conference regarding Hurricane Ida in Louisiana.

“I’m not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead,” he told a reporter. Then he refused to answer anyway because the question was about Biden’s catastrophe in Afghanistan, where the terrorists in Taliban took over when the president ordered American troops to flee the country.
Last week, he admitted he was being “instructed” how to allow questions.
“Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here. The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O’Donnell from NBC,” Biden started.
In June, he admitted at a Geneva press conference he would call on reporters only if they were on the list he was given.

“As usual, folks, they gave me a list of the people I’m going to call on,” Biden said.
He repeatedly has “joked” that he’ll get in “trouble” for taking questions after he’s been instructed not to do that.
The report explained, “Biden’s unusual word choice when it comes to answering questions doesn’t only apply to the press. The White House confused onlookers in March when it suddenly cut the feed of a virtual event after Biden said he was ‘happy to take questions’ from Democratic lawmakers.”
There are multiple, and daily, calls for Biden to resign, be removed, or impeached.
