Biden Goes Blank, Freezes On Stage Forcing Obama To Lead Him Off

Amid mounting scrutiny, President Joe Biden's administration is actively defending his mental acuity and fitness for office by downplaying a viral video showing Biden freezing up on stage according to Western Journal.

The ongoing defense by the Biden administration occurs amidst public episodes questioning President Biden's mental sharpness, stirring debates about his suitability for a second presidential term.

The first lady, Jill Biden, recently took a firm stand, defending her husband's competency during a rally in Reno, Nevada.

Her support came at a crucial time as public discussions intensified over the President's capacity to lead effectively. Biden's mental decline has been talked about for years but his multiple episodes indicate his condition is getting worse.

Freezing On Stage At Los Angeles Fundraiser

One such public moment unfolded during a high-profile fundraiser in Los Angeles, where President Biden, accompanied by Jimmy Kimmel and former President Barack Obama, momentarily froze on stage. This incident lasted several seconds, capturing the attention of both supporters and critics alike.

In response to the incident, the White House and supporting media outlets circulated an alternative video angle of the moment. They asserted that the President was merely taking a moment to enjoy the atmosphere, countering narratives that suggested a lapse in his mental fitness.

White House Senior Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates strongly criticized the New York Post for the first-rate depiction of the event, accusing them of compromising journalistic integrity in their portrayal of President Biden.

The incident at the fundraiser and subsequent defenses from the administration underline the potential political repercussions as the presidential election approaches. With former President Donald Trump leading in several polls, the stakes are high for the Democratic Party.

Rumors and speculations abound regarding the Democratic Party's strategy moving forward. There's growing curiosity about whether the party will endorse President Biden for another term or pivot to a new candidate amidst these health concerns.

Jill Biden's words at the rally were telling. She described President Biden as “not just one of the most effective presidents of our lives, in spite of his age, but because of it,” highlighting his experience as a valuable asset.

Criticism and Support in the Public Arena

While some public figures and media outlets question President Biden's fitness, others view the campaign against him as unwarranted. A comment on social media platform X exemplifies the divide: “Everyone promoting Joe Biden for another term is committing elder abuse, not to mention the abuse to our country.”

In sharp contrast, Bates's remarks on X aimed to redirect the narrative toward attacking the New York Post. He stated, “Fresh off being fact-checked by at least six mainstream outlets for lying about @POTUS with cheap fakes, Rupert Murdoch’s sad little super pac, the New Post, is back to disrespecting its readers & itself once again. Their ethical standards could deal with a little unfreezing.”

Bates is asking voters to ignore the evidence of their eyes and instead listen to what they say. No, you didn't see Biden freeze on stage, he was simply taking the moment in, despite Obama grabbing him to lead him away.

As the presidential election draws nearer, the Democratic Party faces tough decisions. The support for Biden amidst these incidents will likely shape the party's strategy and potentially influence its future leadership decisions.

The discussion around President Biden's health and leadership ability remains a pivotal issue as he contemplates a second term. His ability to handle the pressures of his role under such scrutiny will continue to be a central theme in political discourse.


The upcoming months will be critical for the Biden administration as it navigates these challenges, with both the Democratic Party and its constituents watching closely.

President Biden's momentary pause at the fundraiser, coupled with the administration's robust defense of his mental fitness, encapsulates the current challenges facing his presidency.

These events have sparked a broader debate about age, capability, and leadership within the highest echelons of American politics. The situation remains dynamic, with future developments likely to bring further scrutiny and debate.
