Report: Biden Skipped Meeting with World Leader Due to Early Bedtime

A report from the Wall Street Journal alleges that Joe Biden declined to attend an important meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz back in 2022 because he had to go to bed early.

According to the Daily Caller, the report claims that the meeting was set up by German officials during a Group of Seven (G7) summit in June of 2022. Those who scheduled the meeting even made sure to have it take place in the early evening because they knew that Biden would get “fatigued” later at night. But Biden never arrived, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken attended in his place to tell Chancellor Scholz that Biden had gone to sleep.

In response to the Journal’s report, the Biden Administration quickly put out a statement denying the claim.

“Secretary Blinken never said that or anything like it,” said State Department spokesman Matthew Miller. He further claimed that the White House had “indicated early” to the chancellor’s office that Biden would not attend the meeting, and disagreed with the claim that Blinken had been sent as a substitute for Biden.

The Journal further reported that in another incident during the G7 trip in 2022, Biden was managing the various phone calls with world leaders, and thus ended one such call at 10 PM due to being tired.

Although attendees at the summit said they did not see any signs of cognitive decline, they nevertheless admitted that Biden did get noticeably slower as the summit went on. Administration officials tried to use the excuse that Biden was tired due to a lack of air conditioning.

These and other leaked reports hinting at Biden’s mental decline have become a consistent pattern following Biden’s disastrous performance in the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, in which Biden gave incoherent and rambling answers, and stammered and paused awkwardly throughout the 90-minute debate. His performance has been widely declared to be the worst performance in the history of televised presidential debates, with scores of Democratic officials, candidates, and commentators calling on him to step down as the nominee ahead of the November election.
