The Biden Presidency has been one marked with more gaffes than anyone cares to think about.
Every time that he speaks it becomes clearer Americans must question his mental fitness for office.
But his latest gaffe has Republicans slamming him as disgraceful and the White House is refusing to back down.
Biden calls out to recently deceased Member of Congress during White House conference
While speaking on food insecurity at a public event, the President called out to a Congresswoman who was tragically killed in a car accident in August along with two of her staffers.
Jackie Walorski is the late Representative of Indiana’s Second Congressional District.
When thanking the group for bipartisanship Biden called out, “Jackie are you here?” asked a confused Biden. “She must not be here.”
White House facing backlash over claims Walorski was simply “top of mind”
The incident has been greatly criticized.
Especially because Biden was also readying to sign a bill that would commemorate Walorski by naming a Veterans Affairs clinic after her.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre only made things worse when she astonishingly claimed that Walorski had just been “at top of mind for Biden” and she was sure the average American watching would understand that.
It’s hard to understand if she’s top of mind how Biden wouldn’t have been focusing on memorial services for her.
In which case, he would remember her passing.
Jean-Pierre’s reasoning wasn’t enough to temper the Republican backlash.
Arizona Representative David Schweikert pushed back on Jean-Pierre directly, “The White House Press Secretary completely failed to defend Biden’s unacceptable comments about my late friend and colleague Jackie Walorski. The President should personally apologize to her family and loved ones immediately.”
Representative Vicky Hartzler from Missouri called it a “disgraceful blunder” and said “Her family deserves better than this. Biden and the entire White House Staff should apologize.”
Just another “daily reminder” that Biden is “unfit” and “senile”
Steve Guess, a spokesperson for Ted Cruz, pointed to Biden’s mental acuity and the fact the corporate-controlled press was finally being forced to recognize it in their reporting.
“Remember where you where [sic] on September 28,2022. It’s the day it finally became ok for the White House Press pool to acknowledge that Joe Biden is senile,” he wrote on Twitter.
Andy Biggs from Arizona joined in telling his followers it’s just, “Your daily reminder that Biden is mentally unfit to be the President of the United States.”
Jim Banks calls the situation “embarrassing” for Americans, but it’s frightening
Jim Banks, a Representative from Indiana who was sponsoring the bill for the Veterans Affair memorial called it “embarrassing.”
Most Americans can share Banks’ sentiment.
Joe Biden is the leader of the free world and he represents Americans on the world stage.
But actually, Americans should be far more frightened than embarrassed.
Joe Biden has authority over a variety of government agencies and wields it regularly.
He is the leader of the most powerful military on the planet.
He should at least be coherent enough to remember the sudden and tragic passing of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
