President Joe Biden's comments suggesting he didn't remember that a Republican Congresswoman died a month ago in a car accident are causing renewed criticism of his obviously diminished mental state.
While the White House press office continued to make excuses for him and said that Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) was just on his mind because he was going to meet with her family, Republicans became more strident in their comments.
"Joe Biden’s diminished capacity is so blatantly obvious that even the White House Press corps couldn’t hide their concern, Sen. Ted Cruz said, adding, "That’s how you know it’s bad."
"In yet another pathetic display of incompetence, Joe Biden not only thought my departed colleague was alive, but he also had his puppet-master, Karine Jean-Pierre, deny he was confused," Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who was also White House physician to several presidents, said in a statement.
"It doesn’t take a neurologist to realize he’s in serious cognitive decline. The American people know what’s going on here, and they don’t think the Commander-in-Chief is capable of doing his job," he continued, repeating his call for Biden to take a cognitive test and make the results public.
