President Joe Biden has been the subject of questions around his mental fitness for years, but now one renowned brain surgeon has weighed in.
Ben Carson, who served in the Trump administration and is a world famous neurosurgeon, would not give a medical diagnosis but spoke out on Biden’s mental fitness.“Well, certainly you want someone in that office who’s a peak performer, not someone whose staff has to constantly come behind him and clean up what he’s been saying,” Carson told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Someone who can complete a sentence without a teleprompter would be helpful, as well.”
“It sends a message that now is the time to take advantage of the United States while we have weakened leadership. Recognize the position of the United States and the world,” he added.
A series of flubs and strange moments have led many to question the president and raise the possibility of mental decline.

After Biden finished his speech, he turned around and tried to shake hands with thin air, and then wandered around looking confused.
