(trendingpoliticsnews) – In Wednesday’s press briefing, a reporter took the Biden administration to task, questioning the President’s mental state and his recent comments regarding 9/11.
Biden marked the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in Alaska, speaking at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage. However, Biden faced criticism for not attending traditional ceremonies in New York or the Pentagon, and for making a debunked claim that he was at Ground Zero a day after the attacks.
The exchange began when a reporter asked National Security Council spokesman John Kirby about Biden’s recent remarks, which some have labeled as “tall tales” or outright fabrications. The reporter questioned “What is going on with the president? Is he just believing things that didn’t happen did happen? Or is he just randomly making stuff up?”
The room grew tense as all eyes turned to Kirby. However, instead of providing a clear answer, Kirby appeared flustered, struggling to find the right words.
The President’s comments on 9/11 have been a source of controversy, with critics accusing him of either misremembering events or deliberately fabricating details. This is not the first time Biden’s remarks have come under scrutiny. Throughout his tenure, he has faced criticism for various misstatements, leading to broader concerns about his cognitive abilities.
