Stephanopoulos Grills Psaki on Why Most Americans Don’t Think Biden Has ‘Mental Capacity’ for Office

ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos grilled White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on President Joe Biden’s “mental capacity” during a new interview.

During a Sunday appearance on “This Week,” Stephanopoulos blindsided Psaki by bringing up a new poll.

The ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 54% of Americans have questions about Biden’s mental fitness for office.

Stephanopoulos said, “The president is approaching his State of the Union in a pretty difficult political position right now, 37% approval rating, Democrats trailing badly in the midterm polling.

“A majority in our recent poll out this morning even question the president’s mental capacity.

“How is he going to turn that around on Tuesday night? And how much has his State of the Union been changed by this war in Ukraine?”

The poll shows Biden hitting an all-time low of 37 percent job approval but also found that 54 percent believe the president lacks the “mental sharpness” to govern effectively.

Psaki dodged the question saying: “You know, George, from covering State of the Unions for some time, that it is about delivering a message to the public at a moment in time.

“And if you look back when President Obama gave his first State of the Union, it was during the worst financial crisis in a generation.

“When President Bush gave his first State of the Union, it was shortly after 9/11.

“Leaders lead during crises.

“That’s exactly what President Biden is doing.
