Following President Joe Biden’s damning press conference on Thursday night, Democrats are hitting the panic button, knowing they can no longer hide the president’s cognitive health woes.
Special Counsel Robert Hur issued a report regarding Biden’s mishandling of classified documents case. According to his ruling, the 81-year-old president is too old to face charges, suggesting it would be a disservice and highly unlikely a jury would find him guilty.
Behind the scenes, after that dreaded night for the Democratic Party, allies of the president are urging Biden to step out in public more often in hopes he can counter his major faux pas and erase it from American’s minds.
Democrats told Politco that the key is to put Biden in front of reporters and have him talk with voters and the media in unscripted situations— far from teleprompters.
A recent NBC News poll found that 76 percent of voters are concerned Biden is not mentally prepared to serve a second term.
In comparison, a 2021 Fox News poll found that less than 50 percent of voters thought Biden was cognitively able to hold office.
