Putin Destroys Far-Right Claim: That Biden is Mentally Un-Fit
Fox News, OAN News, NewsMax, and other right-wing news organizations pundits, even those in Russia, have been pushing the narrative that President Biden is mentally unfit to be POTUS. Russia's dictator for life disagreed after their summit, saying about Biden's mental fitness: "He doesn't let anything get by, I assure you."
The right-wing media in the U.S. and Russian media have done their best since President Joe Biden's inauguration to paint him a doddering and mentally feeble old man. Still, Vladimir Putin says that's just not true.
According to Bloomberg, the Russian dictator, president for life, met with President Trump Wednesday for their first summit in Geneva. Putin shut down the doddering and mentally feeble old man narrative about Biden's fitness as a leader after a Russian senator asked if Biden had dementia; Putin responded to the question by saying…
"The image of President Biden that our, and even American, media present has nothing to do with reality," "Biden's a professional; you have to be very attentive with him so as not to miss anything. He doesn't let anything get by, I assure you."
The doddering and mentally feeble old man narrative was originally spun by former president Trump and picked up by most Russian state media and news outlets and many on the far right U.S media and news organization. They have openly done the same thing former president Trump did; speculate publicly and often that 78-year-old Biden is too old and infirmed to serve as POTUS effectively. Some have even pointed to Biden's note cards at the Geneva summit, which Putin said all world leaders do.
Instead of attacking President Biden, Putin chose instead to go after his aids, saying, for example …
"His press secretary is a young, educated, beautiful woman who's always mixing things up, (taking a shot at Jen Psaki, who first drew his ire as State Department spokeswoman in the Obama administration) "[Biden is] collected, knows what he wants to achieve and does it adroitly."
'No hostility', Putin says U.S. - Russia talks with Biden were constructive
