During a recent White House briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked point blank by a reporter if Joe Biden has demnetia.

The reporter asked KJP, “I’m gonna ask something delicate, and you may not like it. The president may not like to hear it if he’s watching.”

“I think the American people need to get a yes or no answer on this. Does President Biden at 81 years old have Alzheimer’s any form of dementia or degenerative illness that will cause these sorts of lapses?” added the reporter.

KJP responded, “I have an answer for you. Are you ready for it? Yes. It’s a no, and I hope you’re asking the other guy the same exact question.”

Here’s what Fox News reported:

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answered point-blank that President Biden does not suffer from Alzheimer’s or any form of dementia in the wake of last Thursday’s debate.

“Does President Biden, at 81 years old, have Alzheimer’s, any form of dementia or degenerative illness that cause these sorts of lapses? And it’s a yes or no question,” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre on Tuesday afternoon.

“Are you ready for it? It’s a no. And I hope you’re asking the other guy the same exact question,” Jean-Pierre responded, referring to former President Trump.

Tuesday’s press briefing marked the first since Biden’s debate performance last week that sparked calls among Democrats and legacy media outlets that the president should drop out of the election over mounting concerns over his age and mental acuity. Biden was seen tripping over his words during the debate, losing his train of thought at times, responding with a raspy voice, and he was overall slammed for having a slow and weak demeanor while squaring off against Trump.

Per The Independent:

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday said President Biden does not have Alzheimer’s, a form of dementia, or another degenerative illness that would explain his rambling, meandering performance during last week’s presidential debate against former president Donald Trump.

Jean-Pierre was asked directly by The Independent if Biden’s reported lapses in memory and struggles during public events was the result of such an illness during the daily White House press briefing, the first since Biden turned in a shockingly dismal performance in his first face-to-face meeting with Trump since they last debated during the 2020 election.

To the question posed, Jean-Pierre replied: “No,” and said she hopes that Trump’s campaign is also being asked a similar question.
