(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden had another awkward moment during an interview that MSNBC aired Friday: “When asked if the first lady supports a 2024 run, Biden nodded and paused before providing a full answer. ‘My wife thinks that we’re doing something very important and that I shouldn’t walk away from it,’ he said.

In a conversation with MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart about (ironically) his plans to run for a second term, Biden’s eyelids drooped and he started nodding off, creating an embarrassing pause. It prompted Capehart to smile awkwardly and say “Mr. President…” and then “ope!” as Biden’s eyes fluttered open.

It’s not the first time Biden has appeared to fall asleep in the course of his presidential duties.

During a climate summit in November 2021, Biden’s nap was so obvious even the corporate media couldn’t explain it away.

The Washington Post admitted that Biden “was the oldest person to be sworn into office and has faced questions from his own party about whether he should seek reelection, due partly to his age,” but then proceeded to explain why “the reemergence of former president Donald Trump” necessitated another Biden run.

In a curt summary of the exchange, NBC News reported that “Biden indicated first lady Jill Biden is supportive of a potential second term.” CNN and The New York Times offered similarly under-informative reports.

That’s quite the change of tune from the four years of the Trump presidency in which left-wing journalists invented opportunity after opportunity to cast doubt on that president’s mental dexterity.
