As he departed his most recent speech this week, President Biden appeared disoriented and bewildered, sparking new questions following a string of similar caught-on-camera events.
The commander-in-chief, who is prone to missteps and will turn 80 next month, made his most recent embarrassing stage exit after speaking Thursday at a rally in Pittsburgh to support Democrat John Fetterman.
Biden turned to his right after making his speech, then halted and addressed his team while raising his hands.
After completing a 180-degree spin to his left to find the exit, he turned to his right, then the opposite way.
He then hurried off stage while pointing at the door and appearing to mutter to himself.
When questioned by reporters during an unplanned stop at a sandwich restaurant just outside of Pittsburgh, Biden had additionally displayed confusion.
The clips, which followed a slew of related ones showing the president appearing disoriented and stumbling over his words, increased long-standing worries about his mental strength.
Biden has been urged to take a dementia cognition test by Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a former White House physician to Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.
In order to assist Fetterman, who is running for an open Senate seat despite his own health issues following a stroke in May, Biden traveled back to Pennsylvania, where he spent his formative years.
According to press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, the communications secretary for the White House, Fetterman is “just as capable” as ever of being a senator in President Joe Biden’s eyes.
