Biden Struggles to Remember Daughter’s Wedding: ‘My Mind Is Going Blank Now’
Biden's mental health called into question again
Demcorat Joe Biden had another brain freeze on Thursday after he tried to recall his daughter's wedding at a virtual event celebrating the beginning of the Jewish High Holidays.
During the event which focused on anti-Semitic attacks, Biden concluded his remarks by calling for religious collaboration before highlighting his daughter Ashley's marriage to Jewish doctor Howard Krein.
"We wanted to have a co-confessional wedding," Biden said.
"And we had a chuppah on the altar, and we had a co- … it was co-officiated."
"Now, some of you aren’t going to like this, but it was co-officiated by a Catholic priest as well as a Jewish rabbi."

Biden then talked about his favorite Catholic hymn, which was played at the wedding.
"I only asked one thing. There’s a psalm-based, there’s a hymn, my favorite hymn in the Catholic Church based on a psalm, and it’s — it’s a psalm that talks about life."
"And so, I — I asked if that ps- — that psalm — that hymn in the Catholic Church," Biden said.
"And it says, ‘May He lift you up on Eagle’s wings and bear you on the breath of dawn, and let the light shine upon you,’ et cetera, and — ‘and hold you in the palm of his hand.’"
"And they played and … I’m my mind is going blank now," Biden stammered.
"What’s the song that is played where everybody is on the chair?" Biden added.
"I can’t remember it. Anyway. And that’s the song that was played."
Biden also told Jewish leaders of his time spent at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh following the 2018 massacre which left 11 people dead.
"I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them," Biden said.
But the executive director of the Tree of Life, Barb Feige said Biden did not visit the synagogue in the years following the attack, as Neon Nettle reported.
Biden issued a statement on the second anniversary last year:
"When anti-Semitism is allowed to fester, it shreds the fabric of our communities and erodes our soul," according to the paper.
Earlier this year, former White House physician, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), sent a letter to Biden, demanding he immediately submits to a cognitive test.
Jackson said Biden's “mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past eighteen months.”
