Leading British newspaper Daily Mail reported that “Joe Biden was filmed crumbling after he called on Fox News journalist Peter Doocy at a press conference, only to be accused of failing to answer Doocy’s question.” The Daily Mail raised concerns about Joe Biden’s mental and medical condition:
Nowhere to hide, Joe: President adopts fetal position pose as he crumbles under questioning from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and tries to blame Trump for the catastrophe in Afghanistan
Biden, 78, looked lost for words after being asked if he bore responsibility for an ISIS-K suicide attack at Kabul Airport on Thursday that killed 13 US service personnel, before bowing his head and clutching a file tightly around his hands.
He did so moments after raising eyebrows by revealing he had been given a list of pre-approved journalists to call on, saying: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here. The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O’Donnell from NBC.’
Doocy was the last journalist called, with Biden left tongue-tied after tried to throw a question back at Doocy about why Fox News was neglecting to mention that Donald Trump had confirmed the withdrawal when he was president.
But Doocy continued to push, with Biden visibly struggling after being pressed to take the blame for Thursday’s atrocity.
Last week, a top cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, consultant and expert in evidence-based medicine, expressed concerns about Biden’s age and mental and physical well being.
Biden – at 78 – is the oldest president and has previously suffered two brain aneurysms and a heart condition which makes the muscle beat too fast, causing dizziness and confusion.
After working his way through a list, Doocy, who also followed Biden on the campaign trail, was one of the six members of the press the president called on.
While Biden waited for Doocy to get the mic, he smirked. Then Doocy was clear and forceful in his questions.
‘There had not been a U.S. service member killed in combat since February of 2020,’ Doocy told him. ‘You set a deadline, you pulled troops out, you sent troops back in, and now 12 marines are dead,’ he said, using the death toll that has since been updated to confirm an extra fatality.
‘You said the buck stops with you. Do you bear any responsibility for the way things have unfolded the last two weeks?’
