Biden Triggers More Democrat Panic with ‘Joke’ about Brain Damage

President Joe Biden appears to have added to the fears about his fitness for office while trying to reassure top Democrats.

During a meeting with Democrat governors, Biden told a “joke” about being unsure whether he might have brain damage.

However, the comments about his health came a little too close to the truth.

In response to a question from Hawaii’s Democrat Governor Josh Green, Biden reportedly said, “I’m fine — I don’t know about my brain, though.”

Biden has long been known to use self-deprecating humor throughout his political career.

However, this latest joke will do little to stead the ship as Democrats panic over Biden’s re-election odds following his debate debacle last week.

Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said Biden was “clearly making a joke and then said, ‘All kidding aside.'”

However, at least one governor at the meeting was “puzzled” by Biden’s comment, the New York Times reported.

Later, Gov. Green defended Biden on CNN.

In response to the panic about Biden, Green urged Democrats to “lighten up.”

Green, a doctor, said Biden’s ability to make jokes is proof that he is not in cognitive decline – hardly a ringing endorsement of his fitness.

“Biden was just kidding with us and frankly, and I’m saying this as a physician, it is a significant ability to cognitively still be able to make a self-deprecating joke,” Green said.

“So if anything, people do need to lighten up.”

Nevertheless, Biden has done little to quiet fears about his fitness.

Biden also the governors Wednesday that he just needs to sleep more and work less.

He said he would stop scheduling events after 8 p.m.

Democrats have been left divided on how to move forward with the presidency and the looming election.

Many are now fearing Biden could hurt the party down the ballot.

So far, Biden has found relatively robust backing from governors.

Democrats in Congress have been less supportive, however.

A handful of House Democrats have called on Biden to step aside.

Democrat Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) has reportedly begun an effort to get Biden out.

Biden has responded to the mounting pressure with defiance.

He dismissed Warner as “the only one” when asked about the senator’s push on Friday at a campaign rally in Wisconsin.

During the event, Biden vowed to keep fighting.

“They’re trying to push me out of the race,” he told a crowd.

“Well let me say this as clearly as I can: I’m staying in the race.”

“I’m not letting one 90-minute debate wipe out three and a half years of work,” he said.
