Will Biden Falter Tonight?

Joe Biden

(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – With fewer voters giving Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt due to his advanced age and multiple “senior moments,” the president is set to take his possibly last public test of fitness for office in Thursday’s State of the Union address as Americans will watch to see if he falters.

Biden’s numerous public gaffes – from speech blunders to falling from his bike or down the Air Force One stairway, to shaking hands with ghosts and seeking out deceased persons in the crowd – have visibly shaken the nation’s confidence in his abilities.

In terrible developments for the 81-year-old president’s reelection campaign, more and more polls are showing that the vast majority of Americans consider him too old for the White House.

Other surveys indicate he’s bound to lose practically all the battleground states to the presumed Republican nominee, former President Donald Trump.

Likely the most damning recent assessment of Biden’s condition has been the 400-page report by US Special Counsel Robert Hur released last month on the president’s mishandling of classified US papers.

While Hur discovered that Biden did mishandle classified information, he recommended no charges against the president due to the latter’s advanced age and evident memory issues.

Thursday’s fourth State of the Union address by President Biden could be his last if he is voted out of office in November or decides to step down and leave the Democratic nomination to another nominee.

Biden’s annual speech will be attended by Mia Schem, a 21-year-old French Israeli tattoo artist who survived a kidnapping by the Palestinian Arab Islamist terror group Hamas during the October 7 terrorist attack in Israel.

Schem will participate in this event along with at least 17 relatives of individuals still held by Hamas in Gaza.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has facilitated her attendance, as reported by Jewish Insider and The New York Post.

Meanwhile, some of the most high-profile guests invited by Biden’s White House to his State of the Union speech have refused to attend: Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska and the widow of the late Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny, Yulia Navalnaya.

47-year-old Navalny recently died in a Russian penal colony in the Arctic, with his widow and supporters sure that he was murdered at the orders of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

According to Ukrainian analysts and exiled Russian opposition commentators, both Zelenska and Navalnaya have declined to attend Biden’s State of the Union speech precisely because the other one had been invited.

Ukrainians remain wary of the Navalny family because of the late opposition leader’s long-time refusal to denounce Putin’s conquest of Ukrainian territories, which started in 2014.

Meanwhile, Navalnaya is also said to be unwilling to attend because Biden will likely call for more US military aid and weapons to Ukraine, which is fighting off the Russian military invasion.
