The American people have known for some time that Democrat Joe Biden has a mental health problem, and his disturbing conduct at Tuesday’s State of the Union (SOTU) Address has added additional urgency to address the issue for at least one US Representative who is also a physician.
Following Biden’s address to the country at a time of severe worry for national security, rising domestic crime, economic disaster—and the ramifications of a lingering global pandemic of problems—some people are growing increasingly concerned about Biden’s control of our national power.
Some SOTU watchers remarked that Biden’s walk resembled that of someone suffering from a multitude of chronic illnesses:
I love how the entire country is supposed to pretend that how Biden walks isn’t at all a big deal.

One commenter reacted with a link to a 2012 New York Times story on the “gait” being linked to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.
According to the New York Times,
The way people walk tends to say volumes about the way they think, so much so that alterations in an older person’s stride appear to be an early sign of cognitive decline, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Five studies presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver show that as a person’s walk becomes slower, more unpredictable, or less regulated, his cognitive performance suffers.
These studies reveal that cognitive abilities such as remembering, planning activities, and processing information deteriorate practically in lockstep with the capacity to move freely.
In other words, the more difficult it is for someone to move, the more difficult it is for them to think.
“Changes in walking may predate actually observable cognitive changes in people who are on their way to developing dementia,” said Molly Wagster, chief of the National Institute on Aging’s behavioral and systems neuroscience branch. Experts said the studies could lead to developing a relatively simple tool that doctors could use to forecast, if not diagnose, possible Alzheimer’s disease.
“You can probably just watch them walk down the hall in your office and look for people who are starting to show deterioration in their gait and have no other explanation for it,” said William Thies, the chief medical and scientific officer for the Alzheimer’s Association. “If gait begins to deteriorate, we begin to have a conversation about how is your memory.”
A conversation between a number of persons claiming to have a medical background is also included in the Comments.
” Check out Psychiatric Nursing. Note that he’s only walking in straight lines and he’s high-stepping. The swinging arms are robot-like. He’s been coached because he doesn’t know how to walk anymore,” one poster wrote in response to the video.
WOW! What is going on with Biden here??? He’s TOTALLY lost. This man needs a cognitive exam NOW. There’s NO WAY he’s ok!!pic.twitter.com/5nIAqmMSft
