Tongue-tied President Joe Biden appeared to botch the name of his own attorney general Thursday and offered a word salad in lieu of a coherent statement as he continued his war on the fundamentals of communication. Is Biden suffering from a cognitive decline? We don’t know for sure, but all the anecdotal evidence clearly supports a theory that something isn’t right with the 78-year-old. He has built a career on gaffing things up, but in recent years — since he left the White House in 2016 after serving for eight years as vice president — things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. Biden, when using the power go the pen to attack Americans’ Second Amendment rights on Thursday, made a number of jarring and incomprehensible verbal slips at the White House. In one instance, the president twice referred to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as the “AFT” rather than “ATF.” In another verbal misfire, Biden said something that was difficult to understand, and it even appears as though the White House stenographer threw him a lifeline in the published transcript of his remarks.
