Rand Paul perfectly sums up Biden confusion in one brilliant line

Sen. Rand Paul summed up in a brilliant tweet a confused moment that perfectly summarizes Joe Biden’s term as president of the United States.

In the same press briefing in which Biden defended his suspect memory, he managed to confuse the president of Egypt with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“My memory is fine,” the 81-year-old president said. “I’m the most qualified person in this country to be President of the United States and finish the job I started.”

A few moments later, while discussing the Israel-Hamas war, Biden said he worked with the president of Mexico to help send aid into Gaza.

“As you know, initially, the president of Mexico, Sisi, did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in [to Gaza],” he said. “I talked to him. I convinced him to open the gate.”

Biden was talking about Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, not the president of Mexico, which prompted Sen. Paul to tweet: “Gonna build a wall with Gaza and make Mexico pay for it and boy are they gonna be confused.”

In what proved to be a busy news day, special counsel Robert Hur announced on Thursday his investigation found that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials” kept in unsecured locations, but the Justice Department would not criminally prosecute Biden even though his actions presented “serious risks to national security.”

Perhaps more damning, Hur described the 81-year-old president’s memory as “hazy,” “fuzzy,” “faulty,” “poor” and having “significant limitations.” Even more troubling, the report said Biden could not recall when he was vice president or “even within several years when his son Beau died.”

The report seemed to confirm what many Americans suspected and Biden later tried to deny, which is that he is suffering from serious cognitive decline.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to Paul’s insight, as seen on X:
