President Joe Biden’s recent public appearance at a Juneteenth concert at the White House ignited a flurry of reactions online. During the event, Biden froze for nearly a minute and subsequently delivered a speech that became increasingly slurred and incomprehensible, leaving attendees, including Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, puzzled.

Philonise Floyd, brother of the late George Floyd, who was standing next to the President, tried to help by wrapping his arm around Biden and offering a fist bump, which Biden reciprocated. Despite the encouragement, Biden’s speech deteriorated again, leading to a wave of mockery. One user remarked, “BIDEN JUST NOW: ‘She no long! She knew sllunasuhhijuhnide our freedom can never be secured.’

I give this guy a month. It’s over.” Another user quipped, “Tonight, Biden introduced us to the newest language: Bidenese. Confident that part of the speech wasn’t plagiarized.” Other comments ranged from accusations of elder abuse to doubts about Biden’s suitability for the presidency. One user opined, “If this isn’t elder abuse on the part of Dr. Jill, I don’t know what is,” while another questioned, “How is this our best option for president?” Another warned, “Marble mouth! He may not live until November.

His decline is rapid.” According to the Daily Mail, Biden mumbled, “She knows loss.. she know…(incoherent) our freedom can never be secured.” His speech became coherent briefly as he added, “The day reminds us that we have a hell of a lot more work to do. Let’s keep marching. Let’s keep the faith.”

Some health professionals suggested that Biden’s frequent gaffes and lapses in clarity might be signs of normal aging and that neither the President nor his rival, Donald Trump, should be judged solely by these incidents. However, Biden’s cabinet members have staunchly defended his mental acuity. White House spokesman Andrew Bates asserted, “Congressional Republicans, foreign leaders, and nonpartisan national-security experts have made clear in their own words that President Biden is a savvy and effective leader who has a deep record of legislative accomplishment, as per Reuters

Now, in 2024, House Republicans are making false claims as a political tactic that flatly contradict previous statements made by themselves and their colleagues,” as per Forbes. Biden, who has a history of gaffes dating back to his time as Vice President, has faced increased scrutiny in recent years. For instance, he once got confused about the timeframe of the COVID-19 pandemic, stating, “And when I was vice president, things were kind of bad during the pandemic, and, what happened was Barack said to me: ‘Go to Detroit — and help fix it.’

As per Fox News,”In another instance, he referenced deceased individuals as if they were alive, saying, “Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” referring to Rep. Jackie Walorski, who died in a car crash a while ago. As the scrutiny of Biden’s public appearances continues, the reactions underscore the polarized views on his capability to lead the nation.
