In recent days, the political landscape has been dominated by the report from Special Counsel Robert Hur and President Joe Biden's response to it.
However, amid this flurry of news, one cannot overlook the statements made by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, particularly as concerns about Biden's mental acuity intensify.
Jean-Pierre was twice questioned this week about some of Biden's perplexing moments. Initially, she was asked to comment on the President's claim that he had spoken to Francois Mitterand and Helmut Kohl in 2021 at a G7 meeting, despite both leaders having passed away years ago.
In response to this, Jean-Pierre stated, "It is not uncommon" for public figures to misspeak about names. This response, however, is questionable. It is indeed uncommon for most people to confuse Mitterand with Emmanuel Macron or mistake Helmut Kohl for Angela Merkel. While everyone is prone to misspeaking, Biden's continual confusion raises concerns.
