CATOCTIN MOUNTAIN PARK, MD – According to reports, the First Lady says those bearing concerns over her husband’s mental fitness shouldn’t be, dismissing such matters as being “ridiculous.”
During a sit-down interview with CBS Rita Braver at Camp David earlier in December, Jill Biden was asked by Braver about her take on recent polling data that showed “quite a few Americans have some questions about the president’s current mental fitness.”
A survey conducted in November found that while 46% of respondents think President Joe Biden “is mentally fit,” 48% percent of respondents believe the opposite. Not to mention, that same polling data found that only 37% of respondents would call Biden a clear communicator, and 34% agreed that he is “energetic.”
Apparently, when presented with these concerns over her husband’s mental fitness, Jill Biden shrugged it off and said, “I think that’s ridiculous.”
While Jill Biden may proclaim that it’s “ridiculous” for there to be ongoing speculation about her husband’s mental fitness, even the most objective of observers can’t argue the fact that President Biden is 79-years-old – which medical studies show that adults in their 70s are ripe for cognitive decline/impairment that can progress to dementia.
Case in point, Joe Biden is right at that age where acuities of the mind and other basic functions are heading south.
Outside of Biden appearing to doze off during climate summits, news outlets from different continents are drafting reports over Biden’s frequent gaffes. We at Red Voice Media also reported on how Biden called Dr. Fauci the president earlier in December.
And those are simply some of the more recent gaffes of the president, as he’s been making weird and off-putting remarks for several years. Take, for instance, his bizarre June 2017 rant in Wilmington, Delaware, where he dished about his showdown with “Corn Pop” and talked about his “hairy legs.”

For someone like Jill Biden to brush off questions and concerns about her husband’s mental fitness as being “ridiculous” at this point in time, with years’ worth of public appearances that suggest Joe Biden is losing his marbles, is in itself ridiculous.
