Biden’s Lame Debate Excuse

Joe Biden

( – After openly admitting to being so tired during his debate with former President Donald Trump that he almost fell asleep, Joe Biden has come up with the lamest excuse for his disastrous performance.

During a recent private fundraiser, Biden blamed his presidential duties as part of a short six-minute speech amid discussions about his diminishing vitality and effectiveness as the Democratic party’s nominee.

“I decided to travel around the world a couple of times … shortly before the debate … I didn’t listen to my staff … and then I almost fell asleep on stage,” Biden shared.

However, Biden actually returned to the U.S. two weeks before the debate and spent a week at Camp David with a relaxed schedule that included daily naps and late morning starts, The New York Times detailed.

Biden reportedly apologized for the debate’s poor showing but emphasized the importance of winning the upcoming election and described his travel fatigue as “an explanation.”

Those close to Biden revealed that their recent observations suggest the Democrat has been seen increasingly confused and having difficulty in maintaining conversation, raising concerns about his overall sharpness and health.

The New York Times highlighted this pattern, noting that Biden’s gaffes and confusing moments during his European visits became fodder for viral social media content.

Meanwhile, the White House has been protective over Biden’s health details, particularly denying any speculation around Parkinson’s disease and clarifying that Biden has not been treated with medications typically used for dementia, such as Levodopa.

The White House is even going as far as to refuse to let White House physician Kevin C. O’Connor face reporters and answer questions about Biden’s mental and physical decline.

In the backdrop of these health concerns and public appearances, Biden’s inner circle appears to be closing ranks, perhaps to minimize risks of further public gaffes.

This tightening of his support network includes his son, Hunter Biden. Despite his controversial past and ongoing legal matters, Hunter has been reported to be attending official White House meetings, surprising many within the administration.
