Was he suffering from any mental condition at any particular moment? He might have been struggling between double thoughts. These are the difficulties that America President Joe Biden had to encounter during a recent press conference. At the prime old age of 78 years, Biden reportedly stumbled not once but thrice. However, his political distraction did emerge leading to a bit more amazing reactions.
His forgetfulness and mumblings during the recent open press meet were materialised. It appeared as if he was so unnerved that he seemed to have completely overlooked. His response was not in line with what precisely came before the camera. Whimpers and babblings preceded before his abrupt walking away from the stand mid-question in an open press conference.
The President hurried to take varied questions from reporters for the first time, but quickly began to make slips or mistakes. While finishing his answer upon a question about the filibuster, he appeared to track off-thought, halting with a break, finalising “anyway”. Again, “If you hold near and dear to you that you uh… umm… like to be able to umm…” he said, before concluding with “Anyway”. Accordingly, he closed both his eyes and strived to form the following sentence.
However, after a few seconds of confusion, he rapidly told his reassuring viewers, “We’re ready to get a lot done.” He then appeared to call out a name from a list of White House reporters who were quizzing the President. Turning to his list at a later point, he inquired “Where am I?”, before asking CNN’s Kaitlan Collins for another question, as reported by The Sun.
A filibuster is a parliamentary procedure used in the United States Senate to prevent a measure from being brought to a vote. The most common form of filibuster occurs when one or more senators attempt to delay or block a vote on a bill by extending a debate on the measure.
