President Joe Biden is making decisions that have far-reaching consequences around the globe. Meanwhile, he’s having trouble stringing sentences together.
Biden tried to prove his Jewish bona fides by speaking about his daughter’s wedding but forgot important details, the Washington Examiner reported. The president was speaking to a group of rabbis ahead of the Jewish holidays.
Biden’s brain snaps as he tries to remember his *own* daughter’s wedding & pander to rabbis:
“My mind is going blank now, what is the song that is played, with everybody around the chairs, up? I can’t remember— anyways I’m taking too much of your time.”

“My daughter married a Jewish young man. And — you know, dream of every — every Catholic father that she marry a Jewish doctor,” he said. Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden Krein, married Philadelphia surgeon Howard Krein in 2012.
He went on to say how his daughter ended up getting married in an interfaith ceremony at his Catholic parish. “And we had a chuppah on the altar, and we had — it was co-officiated. Now, some of you aren’t going to like this, but it was co-officiated by a Catholic priest as well as a Jewish rabbi.”
The 78-year-old president then struggled through the next part of his tale. “There’s a psalm-based, there’s a hymn, my favorite hymn in the Catholic Church based on a psalm, and it’s — it’s a psalm that talks about life. And so, I — I asked if that — that psalm — that hymn in the Catholic Church,” he struggled.
He stumbled through some of the lyrics of “On Eagle’s Wings” though he couldn’t remember the title of his favorite him until later on. Then he continued, again having trouble recalling another important fact.
“And they played and … I’m my mind is going blank now. What’s the song that is played where everybody is on the chair?” Biden asked to no one. “I can’t remember it. Anyway. And that’s the song that was played.”
The obvious attempt at pandering aside, this whole situation reveals the deteriorated mental state the president is in. He is the man who decided to pull troops out of Afghanistan and the one entrusted the nuclear launch codes — and he can’t get simple details of an important day in his life straight.
