But then he (presumably) went off script and let slip a key detail about his health, specifically his mental health.
While rambling, he said “But you know what – the fact is that – I was hospitalized a long time, a couple years ago, cranial aneurysms, I was hospitalized for a long time.”
BIDEN: “I was hospitalized a long time. I had a couple of years ago… aneurysms”
*as he has another aneurysm*

It’s sad to see an old man struggle on stage like that, but it’s even worse that the free world, or what’s left of it post-Covid tyranny, is being led by a guy that often seems unable to speak.
Hence why, as I reported yesterday, a collection of House lawmakers is pushing for Biden to take a cognitive health test, saying:
“This is not a partisan issue. When I discussed taking a cognitive test with President Trump, he was eager to assure the American people and to put the fake news media’s stories to bed. Why won’t President Biden do the same?
We can only assume the worst if he doesn’t submit to the same standard that his own party demanded of the last Administration. The precedent has been set.”
With Biden’s reminder of his aneurysm surgery, that call for him to take a cognitive health test should just grow louder. It’s perfectly possible that Biden is still “all there” mentally and that he’s just a fool; the surgery was in ’88 and he did well enough after that.
But it also could have had long-term effects that are weighing on his mental health more heavily than ever now. Either way, the American people deserve to know; our country can’t be led by a mental incompetent.
