Sky News Australia’s Andrew Bolt joined a series of international commentators questioning the state of US President Joe Biden’s health. While speaking to Washington correspondent Annelise Nielsen, he referenced the President’s recent CNN interview, which sparked further concerns over President Biden’s odd body language. The pair also noted that President Biden has had multiple gaffes during his short tenure as President, which however have often been linked to his lifelong struggle with a stammer.
Mr Bolt said: “Declining polls of Joe Biden, they really are quite extraordinary.
“Terrible disapproval ratings, a part of that seems to me because of a lack of confidence in whether he is mentally all there.
“We have discussed this before but Joe Biden’s body language in the CNN Townhall the other day, I think, raises even more questions about his mental health.
“For a while, he stood there staring at his shoes.

The Sky News Australia host then played a snippet from the interview.
He added: “Annelise, did that footage raise more concerns in public debate about the President’s mental decline?”
Ms Nielson said: “This has become more of a mainstream topic of discussion.

“A forum like this Townhall has been significant because it shows President Biden for an extended period of time.
“There are serious concerns from people about how he is conducting himself on the world stage.
“Australians that are here are raving about how sharp and on top of everything he was.

“That could be true though it does seem unlikely and it seems it is more his team.”
Despite the frequent blunders, both Joe Biden and his office have insisted the President is healthy.
