On Tuesday, President Biden unequivocally informed reporters that he would not be accepting inquiries during his remarks at the White House subsequent to the contentious press conference that occurred last week.
“At this time, I have no inquiries. However, I anticipate receiving inquiries tomorrow or the following day,” Biden declared as he approached the podium. “But I don’t want anything to get in the way of this statement.”
For approximately eight minutes, Biden adhered to the script, imploring House Republicans to support the $95 billion foreign aid package for Taiwan, Israel, and Ukraine that the Senate had approved. Those who opposed the measure, he vehemently criticized, “playing into Putin’s hands.”

Additionally, he criticized former President Trump’s recent remarks regarding the need to protect NATO allies from Russia even if they have not repaid their obligations.
At the conclusion of each of his speeches, Biden prays that “God bless our troops.” He stated, “God bless you all this time.” “May the divine shield our speaker.”
“Furthermore, I assure you that I will return to address future inquiries. “I appreciate it,” Biden continued, “before departing.”
The president’s immediate refusal to answer queries comes days after he attacked a number of reporters in the wake of the publication of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s damning report, which further questioned his mental acuity.

Thursday during a last-minute primetime press conference at the White House, Biden responded to reporters’ queries, with several exchanges escalating into hostilities.
White House correspondent for Fox News, Peter Doocy, was the initial individual to capture Biden’s interest.
“Something the special counsel said in his report is that one of the reasons you were not charged is because, in his description, you are a ‘well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,'” according to Doocy.
“I’m well-meaning and I’m an elderly man and I know what the hell I’m doing,” Biden clarified. “During my presidency, I successfully rallied this nation to its feet.” I am not in need of his endorsement—”
“To what extent does your memory deteriorate? Furthermore, are you able to continue serving as president? Doocy inquired.
“My memory is so hazy that I allowed you to speak,” Biden replied angrily.
When queried by Tyler Pager of the Washington Post whether he was concerned that the report would “fuel additional concern about your age,” Biden replied, “Only by a subset of you.”
Subsequently, the president engaged in a contentious exchange with MJ Lee, a correspondent for CNN. Lee probed the president regarding his prior remarks wherein he advised Americans to “watch me” when queried about his age.
“Many [of the] American people have been watching, and they have expressed concerns about your age,” according to Lee.
“That is your judgment!” Heren Biden yelled at her. “Was that your assessment? “They’ve expressed concerns about your mental acuity,” Lee continued, “which is not the opinion of the press.” “According to some, you are too elderly. You informed me in December, Mr. President, that you believe a substantial number of Democrats are capable of defeating Donald Trump. Thus, why is it now that it must be you?”
“Because I’m the most qualified person in this country to be President of the United States and finish the job I started,” Biden clarified.
Additional controversy surrounded Biden’s error of conflation of Egypt and Mexico when he was addressing the Israel-Gaza conflict.
Hur, who was designated by Attorney General Merrick Garland to examine Biden’s management of classified documents, reached the conclusion that he would not pursue legal action against him, in part, on the grounds that a jury would perceive him as a “caring, benevolent senior citizen with a faulty recollection,” notwithstanding the fact that Biden “intentionally” acquired the documents during his time as vice president and senator.
Additionally, Hur’s report disclosed that Biden possessed a “hazy” recollection of his former administration and the passing of his son Beau.
Consistently indicated by polls, these revelations, coupled with his recent series of gaffes, continue to fuel voter concerns that 81-year-old Biden is too elderly to seek a second term.
