President Joe Biden confused the names of the nations Libya and Syria three times on Sunday during a press conference at the G-7 Summit — sparking rampant speculation that he’s experiencing a decline in his mental health.
The gaffes took place as Biden answered a question about the response the nation planned to take against Russian President Vladimir Putin. The president mentioned Russia’s involvement in Syria, but repeatedly called it Libya instead.
“There is no guarantee you can change a person’s behavior or the behavior of their country. Autocrats have enormous power and they do not have to answer to a public,” Biden began, according to the Daily Caller.
“The fact is that it may very well be if I respond in kind, which I will, that it does not dissuade him. He wants to keep going,” he added.
“But I think we’re gonna be moving in a direction where Russia has its own dilemmas, let us say, in dealing with its economy, dealing with — COVID, and dealing with, not only the United States, but Europe writ large and the Middle East,” Biden said.
Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce tweeted, “This is horrible. At some point his cognitive disfunction has to be considered a natl security threat if only because of the confidence it must give our enemies “President confuses Syria with Libya three times.”

Biden’s latest blunder continues to concern Americans who had hoped the president would provide strong leadership at the G-7 Summit. Trump was known for strongly opposing globalist activites, while Biden has contrasted the practice with rejoining the G-7 and other international agenda items.
