( – On Thursday, President Biden defended his cognitive abilities to reporters after the report of Special Counsel Robert in which he was referred to as a “well-meaning, elderly man with poor memory.” 

In his comments, Biden noted that he was indeed a “well-meaning” and “elderly man” but that he knew very well what he was doing. He added that he is the U.S. President that helped the U.S. recover. He added that he had no need for Hur’s recommendation. 

Using a sarcastic tone, he told the reporters that his memory was “fine” and that the proof was in everything he had achieved since he became the U.S. president. He also pushed back against those voters who had expressed concerns about his age. 

Biden appeared especially upset when he spoke about Hur who claimed that he had forgotten when Beau Biden, his son, passed away. He added that there was a reference to this in the report and questioned how Hur dared raise a question like that, and that when he had originally been asked about his son’s death, he thought to himself that it was not any of the investigators “damn business.” 

However, while Biden might have defended himself from these concerns, in his response to the final question reporters had asked which concerned the Israel-Hamas war he had accidentally made a comment about the “president of Mexico, Sisi,” when he was intending to refer to the president of Egypt. 

Earlier on Thursday, Hur put out an almost 400-page report in which he did not recommend any charges against Biden in the classified documents mishandling case. He concluded, however, that Biden had “willfully” retained the documents in question. In the report, Hur also added a number of criticisms and an assessment of the President’s cognitive abilities and memory.
