Joe Biden, the President of the United States, strongly reacted to the lawyer investigating his handling of classified documents during a recent press conference. The special counsel, Robert Hur, suggested in his report that Biden had forgotten important details, such as the date of his son Beau’s passing and the duration of his term as vice president.
Biden, visibly frustrated, expressed his anger at the mention of his son’s death, stating that it was not the prosecutor’s place to bring it up.
During the press conference, Biden stated, “There’s even reference that I don’t remember when my son died. How in the hell dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their damn business.” He further emphasized that he did not need anyone to remind him of when his son passed away.
In the report, Hur alleged that Biden had also forgotten the years of his vice presidency, which began in 2009 and ended in 2017. Biden firmly denied these claims, asserting that his memory was intact and that the accusations of willfully mishandling classified documents were baseless.
Biden’s lawyers, responding to the report, mentioned that memory lapses when recalling events from years ago are not uncommon. They criticized Hur’s remarks, stating that they had no place in a Department of Justice report.
When asked about the impact of his memory lapses on his ability to serve as president, Biden responded sarcastically, “My memory is so bad I let you speak. … None of you thought I could pass any of the things I got passed. How’d that happen? No, I guess I just forgot what was going on.”
The report ultimately concluded that Joe Biden would not face criminal charges as he had cooperated fully with the 15-month investigation. Hur also acknowledged that convicting Biden would be challenging due to his status as a well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.
Biden, who is the oldest person to serve as US president, is currently seeking a second term in the upcoming presidential election. However, in recent days, he has made headlines for some memory-related incidents, such as confusing conversations with world leaders and mixing up names.
Despite these incidents, Biden remains determined to continue his presidential duties and has expressed confidence in his ability to govern effectively.
