Biden’s Phantom Handshake Renews Competency Concerns

'This is really sad. He looks lost... '

(Chris ParkerHeadline USA) In one of his first public appearances following his second COVID isolation, President Joe Biden once again called his mental aptitude into question.

During a ceremony commemorating the recent CHIPS and Science Act of 2022, Biden awkwardly waited for a handshake from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY., after Schumer had already shaken his hand.

Schumer was shaking hands with fellow Democrats in celebration of a bill that provides incentives for microchip manufacturers, reported the Washington Examiner. The bill gained support from some Republicans after its tax increase was stripped away.

This isn’t Biden’s first embarrassing handshaking moment. The nearly 80-year-old president couldn’t seem to find anyone to shake hands with after giving a 40-minute speech in North Carolina in April. He then seemed slightly disoriented before walking off stage.

He again shook hands with air in celebration of receiving the Medal of Honor from Israeli President Isaac Herzog in Jerusalem. Herzog also had to guide Biden nearly every step of the way back to his chair.

Biden had another similar awkward moment when no one seemed to want to talk to him or shake his hand during a White House event in April. Attendees appeared to be more interested in speaking to former president Barack Obama than the current sitting president.

That blunder led to significant mockery on social media.

“This is really sad. He looks lost. Our enemies are laughing at the USA. They used to fear us, now they laugh at us,” said journalist Dania Alexandrino.

Former White House Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, questioned Biden’s cognitive health during the 2020 election season. It was later revealed that he received a scathing email from Obama for doing so.

Despite Obama’s rebuke, both Democrats and Republicans have expressed doubts over Biden’s cognitive health. It’s one of the many reasons that Democrats are hesitant to nominate him for the 2024 general elections.
