The recent campaign stop by President Joe Biden in South Carolina has sparked significant concerns among observers, further fueling ongoing debates about his cognitive fitness and leadership capabilities. Biden’s performance was marked by several worrying signs, including incoherence, confusion, and uncontrolled anger, raising red flags about his mental acuity.
In his speech, Biden said, “Donald Trump, when he was Commander-in-Chief, refused to visit a cemetery, a U.S. cemetery outside of Paris for fallen American soldiers and he referred to those heroes, and I quote as ‘suckers and losers.'” Biden then exhibited intense anger, shouting, “He actually said that!! He said that! HOW DARE HE say that! How dare he talk about my son and all [unintelligible] like that.”
This statement by Biden is a repetition of a claim that has been widely discredited. The assertion that Trump called fallen World War I soldiers “suckers and losers” during a trip to France was part of a report from The Atlantic, which cited anonymous sources. This claim was subsequently denied by multiple officials who were present with Trump during the trip, and no concrete evidence has emerged to substantiate it.
Moreover, Biden’s inclusion of his son Beau in this context is misleading. Beau Biden did not die in combat during World War II; he passed away from cancer years after his military service. Biden’s conflation of these facts not only adds confusion to his narrative but also inadvertently disrespects the memories of soldiers who actually died in combat.
Biden is unable to form a coherent sentence.
