'Incoherent' Biden Shouts about 'Fifteen Fewer Democracies' in the World - WATCH
'In the last ten years there’s fifteen fewer democracies in the world'
President Joe Biden went on another incoherent ramble during one of his favorite talking points about democracies backsliding around the world.
“Well guess what?" Biden began.
"In the last ten years there’s fifteen fewer democracies in the world."
“Fewer. Not More, FEWER!”

Biden spoke about democracy during an event in Ohio to promote the economy.
Biden frequently expresses his concern about democracy backsliding, citing a Freedom House study that shows fewer democracies than 15 years ago.
“And as Freedom House will tell you, we have fewer democracies today than we did 15 years ago," he said during a fundraiser in April.
"Democracies are actually receding," Biden stated.
The study by Freedom House tries to quantify the level of freedom experienced in a country, warning of countries losing points in their freedom scores.
The 2021 study typically cited by Biden warns of 15 straight years of Democratic decline.
The most recent study shows no mention of Biden’s claim that there are fifteen fewer democracies in the world but warns that 60 countries suffered declines in freedom.
The 2022 study docked the United States six points, citing the January 6th riots on Capitol Hill protesting the 2020 election as a reason.
