While Afghanistan collapses, COVID rages, and the U.S. economy stagnates, you can take heart in the fact that we have an energetic, dedicated leader ready to tackle any issue that comes his way.
Alright, so you can't take heart in that — because the president is actually Joe Biden. But still, surely he can at least remain awake long enough to meet with the Israeli prime minister. I mean, it's not like that's a demanding assignment.
Apparently, that was too much to ask, though. Biden appears to have fallen asleep at one point during the meeting, and I don't mean that as a joke about the fact that he consistently looks out of it. I mean that it looks like he literally fell asleep.
He's fine, you guys. This is fine.

To appease the fact-checkers, I'll note that I can't tell for sure that he's asleep here. Perhaps he's just resting his eyes? I don't know, but what I do know is that there's nothing normal about Biden hanging his head for 30+ seconds this way, instead of having his attention locked on the head of state he's ostensibly there to speak with. At one point, the video zooms in and you can see that his eyes are closed.
This gives a window into what the president's handlers have to deal with on a daily basis. When he shows up five hours late for a vital press conference on Afghanistan or disappears for days on end, it's probably because he's not even awake.
There's something wrong with Joe Biden, and whatever stimulants they've been giving him in the past aren't working very well anymore. How does this man make it another 3+ years? I just don't see how it's possible, and suggestions that he'll run for re-election are laughable.
More and more people are noticing what the rest of us have seen for years. Biden is a man in steep physical and mental decline. Further, that decline is affecting his emotional health as well, with angry outbursts becoming more and more common.
There's no way he can lead this nation any longer, something that's become abundantly clear over the last two weeks, and if the president had any shame, he'd resign.
