Former White House Stenographer: Joe Biden Has Lost 50 Percent of His Cognitive Capabilities
Former White House stenographer Mike McCormick spent six years (2011-2017) at then-Vice President Joe Biden’s side as he met with world leaders, delivered speeches and interacted with members of the news media. On Tuesday, McCormick, the author of “Joe Biden Unauthorized,” appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast to discuss what he estimates to be a 50 percent decline in his former employer’s cognitive abilities over the past few years. While 50 percent might be an exaggeration, it is clear that President Biden’s mental sharpness has deteriorated since he left the White House in January 2017. McCormick and Bannon began by watching a clip from a 12-minute speech Biden had delivered earlier in the day in which he outlined his administration’s racial equity agenda. It is unmistakable that he was reading the words from a teleprompter. Afterward, he sat at a desk where four executive orders awaited his signature.
