Joe Biden confuses Macron and Mitterand.  Should we be concerned about the cognitive health of the President of the United States?

During a political rally on Sunday February 4, Joe Biden confused Emmanuel Macron and François Mitterrand. This is not the first time that the state of cognitive health of the President of the United States has caused concern… What should we think? The reaction of Dr. Christophe de Jaeger, medical physiologist, specialist in longevity and member of the TipsForWomens expert committee.

New ball from Joe Biden. While he was in the middle of a speech at a political rally on February 4 in Las Vegas, he confused Emmanuel Macron and François Mitterrand. “You know, just after my election, I went to what we call a meeting of the G7, that is to say of all the leaders of NATO” says Biden. “It was in the south of England. I sat down and said, America is back! And Mitterrand of Central Europe – I mean, of Europe, looked at me and said asked: how long are you back for?“.

Falls, loss of balance, memory problems… What is Joe Biden suffering from?

This is not the first time that the president has been talked about for this type of incident. He has already looked for and challenged a person during a speech who was actually dead, he seems to be looking for his way sometimes, has already fallen down the steps of Air Force One, the presidential plane…

So many small events which, taken together, raise questions about Joe Biden’s cognitive health. Questioned by TipsForWomens, Dr Christophe de Jaeger, medical physiologist and specialist in longevity and member of the TipsForWomens expert committee, gives us his point of view on the question. “Joe Biden presents a complex picture typical of people his age. He presents symptoms that indicate a impaired cognitive functions says the doctor.

This is not the first time that the American president has shown certain signs of weakness, such as balance problems, falls, a certain confusion: all these small signs show an alteration of his beginning cognitive functions, which does not is not surprising, at his age“.

Good in his body, good in his head!

A very good final health check… without assessment of his cognitive health

However, in the official health check of the President of the United States, published each year, nothing mentions these disorders. “It is difficult to reveal this information, due to medical confidentiality on the one hand, but also for reasons linked to power” notes the doctor.

When submitting the document to the specialist, he also notices two things: “The document mentions neuropathies, which could explain Joe Biden’s walking difficulties. But what concerns me is that there is no brain MRI or evaluation of these cognitive functions“.

Despite these episodes of confusion or memory problems, which can be explained, according to Christophe de Jaeger, by “a bad night, stress or taking certain medications, for example“, it is not possible to conclude from this whether or not the decision-making abilities of the man at the head of the most powerful country on the planet have been altered.
