Speaking in Philadelphia Sunday, Joe Biden described himself as a ‘grandmom’ and declared that he was wearing an Eagles jacket, when everyone could see it was a Delaware Blue Hens jacket.
At one of his monster rallies in front of literally tens of people, Biden pointed to his granddaughter and stated “I am Finnigan Biden’s grandmom.”

Joe Biden’s former White House stenographer says the presidential candidate’s cognitive functioning and speaking ability has deteriorated significantly in the last few years.
Speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with Biden from 2011 to 2017, said the presidential candidate is “not the same Joe Biden.”
“He’s lost a step and he doesn’t seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago,” said McCormick.
“He doesn’t have the energy, he doesn’t have the pace of his speaking…he’s a different guy,” he added.
McCormick noted that Biden seems to get “lost” during interviews and has also lost his ability to smoothly go off script and connect naturally with his audience.
Joe Biden claimed on Sunday that, by the time he would be done speaking, 200 million Americans will have died from the coronavirus.
As Biden demanded inaction from the U.S. Senate on providing advice and consent on a potential Supreme Court nominee, he said, “It’s estimated 200 million people have died probably by the time I finish this talk.”
That would be roughly two-thirds of the country.
Several minutes later, he read from the teleprompter: “200,000.”
Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden emerged from his basement for a campaign rally, but as usual he couldn’t keep his words straight.
Speaking to a crowd in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, Biden falsely claimed over 120 million Americans had died from the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19.
“He’s not playing with a full deck, folks,” wrote the Trump War Room Twitter account.
Commonly-prescribed opioid-based painkillers led to harmful side effects tripling in people with dementia.
Researchers from the University of Exeter, King’s College London and the University of Bergen are presenting two studies at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2018 (AAIC) highlighting a significant increase in harmful side effects related to the use of commonly prescribed opioid painkillers in people with dementia, compared to those on a placebo*. Researchers also identified a mechanism that may be causing the problem**.
In a randomized controlled trial of 162 Norwegian care home residents, the team found a significant rise in side effect such as personality changes, confusion and sedation, which can seriously impact people’s lives in dementia. The team is now calling for studies to examine appropriate dosing of painkillers such as buprenorphine for people with dementia.
Antidepressants taken daily by millions in Britain may increase the risk of dementia in later life, experts have warned.
A large-scale study published in the Briitsh Medical Journal found a ‘robust link’ between the degenerative disease and long-term use of several common antidepressant drugs.
There could be up to 20,000 people suffering from dementia as a result of antidepressants, the researchers warned – and symptoms may appear even when the drugs were taken 20 years previously.
Sitting at a desk all day or spending hours watching television may damage the brain in a way which is known to increase the risk of dementia, a new study suggests.
While researchers have known for some time that sedentary behavior is bad for physical health, raising the risk of heart disease, diabetes and early death, it is the first study to show it could also influence mental well-being.
Scientists at the University of California recruited 35 people aged between 45 and 65 and questioned them about how many hours per day they spent sitting down over the previous week.
