President Joe Biden’s town hall event on Wednesday has produced a few different moments when it seems the commander-in-chief lost his train of thought, which will no doubt continue to spark thoughts about him suffering from dementia.
There was one exchange in particular when CNN host Don Lemon asked the 78-year-old president a question about vaccinations receiving permanent approval from the FDA and the potential for kids under 12 to receive the vaccine.
During Biden’s answer, he seemed to just ramble incoherently for about 30 seconds, which, again, makes you wonder about his current condition and whether or not he is fit for office.
“You’re always straight up about what you’re doing, and the question is whether or not we should be in a position where you are … Why can’t the experts say, ‘We know that this virus is, in fact’ … Excuse me, we know why the drugs are approved or not,” Biden rambled during the conversational town hall event put together by CNN.

Biden ultimately echoed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that younger children should be vaccinated.
“Everyone over the age of — under the age of 12 should probably be wearing a mask in school. That’s probably what’s going to happen,” Biden continued.
“It’s a matter of community responsibility,” the president added. “I do not tell any scientists what they should do. I do not interfere.”
The president also touted his new multitrillion-dollar spending bill, which he repeatedly claimed would “reduce inflation.”

Even CNN's panelists weren't impressed with Biden's townhall:

It's infuriating to listen to the non-scientific idiocy at the Biden town hall. Children under 12 should be masked? Sure, let's make tens of millions of kids miserable, drive up anxiety social alienation, over a virus that kills an avg. of one *healthy* kid per month. Insanity.

The optics on this particular event do not look good. That much we can definitely agree on, right? It’s time that Biden take a cognitive test to see where he’s at mentally speaking and to find out whether or not he’s fit for office.
Former President Trump was forced to take one of these tests, why should Biden be exempt?
