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.
