Disturbing Video Shows Biden Visibly Confused: 'What Am I Doing Here?'
Slurring Democrat appear to get lost during speech in Texas
A disturbing video has emerged of Joe Biden from a speech last week that shows the Democrat become visibly confused before asking; "what am I doing here?"
Biden appeared to get lost while speaking at a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) vaccination facility in Houston, Texas on Friday.
According to the White House, Biden was touring several Houston sites to offer words of encouragement after Texans were recently hit by crippling winter weather across the state.
However, his speech from the FEMA vaccine center prompted a mix of ridicule and concern after video of his remarks emerged on social media.
The White House transcript of Biden’s remarks shows that he had trouble navigating his way through the list of officials he was supposed to mention.
"Good afternoon — or almost," Biden said.
"Actually, it’s evening," Biden continued
"And I want to thank you, Governor and Mrs. Abbott, for your hospitality and your friendship. And Representative — Senator Cornyn, I think he had to go back; I think he’s getting on a plane,” Biden said, initially confusing the title of Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas.
"He told me last — he came in to see me last event," Biden added while rubbing his eyes.
"And Representatives Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Green, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzie Pannilli [sic] — excuse me, Pannill [Fletcher] — and — what am I doing here? I’m going to lose track here,” Biden said, according to the official transcript of his comments.
"And Mayor Turner, Judge Hidalgo," he slurred.
"Thank you all for welcoming us."
A video clip of the moment shows that, despite the official wording in the transcript, Biden flubbed Jackson Lee’s name, calling her “Shirley.”
Also, as noted on her website, Democratic Rep. Lizzie Pannill Fletcher of Texas goes by the last name of “Fletcher.”
When Trump speaks, he speaks with vigour but when Biden speaks, he speaks with uncertainty. Like in Texas today @JoeBiden said "what am I doing here? Am gonna lose track here", he does that pretty much everytime.— Anario Bright Micheal Obiefula (@brightersonic) February 26, 2021

On RedState, a commentator going by the name of “Bonchie,” whose comments were noted by Donald Trump Jr., said this goes beyond a simple stutter.
"This is a man whose mental capacity appears to be rapidly declining before our eyes,” the commentator wrote.
"You can watch videos of Biden from just five years ago and he’s a totally different person."
