Joe Biden Forgets How Many Grandchildren He Has and Their Genders for Some Reason

Joe Biden appeared with his wife, Jill, again today to offer up another awkward, viral clip showing off his mental decline. I’m at the point where I almost dread writing these stories, but they are newsworthy nonetheless. My goal is not to make fun of Joe Biden’s issues, but if he insists on running for President he leaves little room for it not to become a focus.

Anyway, disclaimer out of the way, the former VP not only forgot how many grandchildren he has today, he couldn’t remember their genders and settled on a completely wrong number after correcting himself numerous times.

You have to watch the video to really get how cringe-worthy this is. Jill Biden is seen glancing over as Joe stumbles multiple times. She’s clearly uncomfortable and realizing that he’s mixing up basic details. In the end, he says he has “4 girls and 1 boy.” In reality, he has 5 girls and 2 boys.

The other thing to wonder here is whether he’s counting the child his son Hunter bore out of wedlock with a stripper. Did he forget about that one, or is he purposely not counting that grandchild? Neither is a very good look.

The awkwardness of all this is starting to get ridiculous. This is not a man mentally capable of being President. He can’t remember how many grandchildren he has, but he’s going to make snap decisions in the heat of the moment that could mean the difference between life and death? Jill Biden not stepping in here is looking more and more like raw ambition run wild. There are some things more important than politics. Not having your husband’s mind melt every day on TV because he’s clearly losing his faculties is one of those things.

As I’ve said before, I’m not predicting Biden is about to keel over. I am saying that when you are almost 80 years old, people start to see a dramatic decline and he’s clearly in that. They forget things, slur their words, and generally have trouble making decisions and forming their thoughts. He needs to be retiring, not trying to become the most powerful man on earth.
