A video tribute to the late Republican female member of Congress was to be shown at the event, but was not shown at the event for the president and the White House press pool.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Fox News Digital that “Joe Biden’s diminutive potential is so clearly evident that even the White House press corps has spoken out about their concerns over the president’s mental state.” Couldn’t hide the worries. Anxiety.”

“That way you know it’s bad,” Cruz said.

Ronnie Jackson, R-Texas, the president's former physician to both former President Barack Obama and Donald Trump, called on Biden again to perform a cognitive test.

Fellow Texas Republican Rep. Ronnie Jackson, who formerly served as the presidential physician to both Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, again called on Biden to take “a cognitive test.”

Jackson said in a statement, “In yet another pitiful display of incompetence, Joe Biden not only thought my late colleague was alive, but also that his puppet-master, Karine Jean-Pierre, denies he was delusional. ,” Jackson said in a statement.

“It doesn’t take a neurologist to realize he’s in severe cognitive decline. The American people know what’s going on here and they don’t think the commander-in-chief is capable of doing his job,” he continued .

“It is time for White House staff and the liberal media to stop defending themselves with questions about their mental acuity and to demand that they answer my call for cognitive testing,” the Texas Republican said.

Representative Greg Murphy, RNC, a practicing surgeon and vice president of the GOP Doctors Caucus, told Fox News Digital that "the American people can see that Mr. Biden

Representative Greg Murphy, RN.C., a practicing surgeon and vice president of the GOP Doctors Caucus, told Fox News Digital that “silly gaffes like this have become par for the course for this president,” and White House of his “cover-up” gaffe.

“The American people can see that Mr. Biden’s mental acuity is certainly under question,” said the North Carolina Republican. “However, what is more disturbing to me is the way this White House continues to deceive and mislead the American people on a daily basis.”

“It appears the White House will do nothing for a failed president and a failed administration,” Murphy said. “The American people clearly deserve better.”

Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hoofer issued a statement on Wednesday following Biden’s mistake, saying it was “too much into question.”

“No amount of spin from the White House can justify President Joe Biden forgetting the tragic passing of Jackie Walorsky — the latest gaffe that calls into question that much,” Hoofer said.

“The American people deserve a straight answer, not a political one, about how the President of the United States can forget that the Congresswoman he was trying to honor died just last month,” He continued.

“White House spokeswoman Carine Jean-Pierre’s explanation is an outrageous lie to Jackie’s constituents and the American people,” Hoofer said. “We deserve a real answer.”

When asked for comment, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News Digital that “President Biden has delivered record job creation, achieved the largest infrastructure investment in 70 years, on the cost of drugs to Medicare.” Has given the right to negotiate, signed the most far-reaching gun. Reform since 1994, made NATO the strongest ever, and took unprecedented action to fight climate change and bring back manufacturing from overseas.”

The president mourned the late Walorsky a month before Wednesday’s omission, prompting the White House to play the defense and clear up another remark.

President Joe Biden appeared on Wednesday at the White House's Hunger, Nutrition and Health conference searching for the late Representative Jackie Walorsky, R-Ind., whose death he mourned a month earlier.

White House spokesman Robin Patterson told Fox News Digital in a statement, “The president speaks directly and clearly — straight over the shoulder, as he often says,” when asked about the president’s long track record. The staff later improvised.

“From rallying the world to support Ukraine to empowering Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices, doing so is critical to their success,” Patterson said. “And when he feels the need to add context to something he has said, or directs his staff to do so – as every president has – he does not hesitate.”

The White House comments come after Jean-Pierre struggled to explain his latest gaffe. After the bizarre episode, Jean-Pierre said Biden was “championing Congress on the issue and acknowledging his incredible work.”

“They had already planned to welcome the Congresswoman’s family to the White House on Friday, with a bill to be signed in her honor this Friday,” Jean-Pierre said. “So, of course, she was on his mind. She was top of mind for president.”

Jean-Pierre doubled down on Biden’s fumble cleanup by the White House when pressed by reporters.

Biden’s mental state was even mocked by his son Hunter in a text exchange with his therapist from his infamous laptop.

Hunter Biden was exchanging text messages with Keith Ablow, his therapist and friend, in early January 2019, a few months before Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign. The book highlighted that Ablow and Hunter were discussing Democratic presidential candidates when Ablow said, “Your dad is the answer” and then later quoted himself as saying, “Anyone who has dementia.” He is a giant. Think what he can do for the necessary recovery of our country.”

Hunter Biden replied, “You’re such a hole, but it made me laugh out loud.”

Abloh quotes himself as saying, “Maybe he can help us remember all that we wanted to be as people because he can now remember his address,” prompting Hunter to say. that his father “doesn’t need” [know] where does he live” because “that’s the only secret service gets[s] Correct at least 75% of the time.”
