On Monday’s broadcast from FEMA’s headquarters, did Joe Biden have a stroke?
On Monday, President Joe Biden addressed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to announce a funding increase for the agency to combat extreme weather disasters. However, videotape from the briefing at FEMA headquarters revealed that the president added to his long history of gaffes by appearing to get lost in his notes and continuing to speak while making no sense. As the president’s accident-prone head of state continues to make public gaffes, viewers online mocked him, calling him “an embarrassment.” Joe Biden is suffering from full-blown dementia, yet the media refuses to accept his condition.
“We don’t have a moment to lose in preparing for 2021.”

As he attempted to get through the address, Mr Biden was met with blank glances from FEMA personnel.
While video shows Mr. Biden mumbling, it appears as if the US president was attempting to imply that 2020 will be a difficult year from which FEMA might learn.
He also seemed to thank FEMA for assisting Americans last year throughout the pandemic and natural catastrophes.
Mr. Biden also seemed to allude to the several natural catastrophes that struck the United States last year, including various hurricanes and wildfires that cost billions of dollars in damage.
The White House reported 22 natural catastrophes in the United States, costing moreover $100 billion in losses.
Viewers, on the other hand, were less than delighted with Mr. Biden’s speech and criticized him for faltering.
Someone made a remark: “What must the people sitting around that table be thinking? This is humiliating to America.”
Another commented: “The most difficult job in the universe, listening to him and act like you’re engaged.”
A viewer also added: “Yeah, this is the guy that got more votes than anyone else.”
Mr. Biden announced a $500 million boost in the FEMA fund to $1 billion to aid the agency in dealing with natural catastrophes.
He also announced a new NASA program to track how the climate is changing and how it affects communities.
Mr. Biden was briefed on the impending hurricane season during his visit to FEMA headquarters in Washington.
After the visit, he said: “Now is the time to get ready for the busiest time of the year for disasters in America, hurricane season in the south and east, and the fire season out west.”
As soon as he took office, Mr. Biden re-joined the Paris Climate Agreement, putting climate change at the forefront of his objectives.
In addition, the US president wants to reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030.
