Did Biden Just Have A Real Glitch When Asked About President Putin?

Something weird happened to President Joe Biden at the NATO summit on Monday after a reporter pressed about Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It started with a CNN reporter saying, "In a weekend interview, Vladimir Putin laughed at the suggestion that you had called him a 'killer.'"

"Is that still your belief, sir, that he is a killer?" the reporter asked immediately following up with a second question. "Do you believe if he does agree to cooperate, then what kind of a challenge do you find yourself in? How would you ever trust him? and if Ronald Reagon said, 'trust, but verify,' what do you say to Vladimir Putin?"

Biden gave a little laugh the struggled to form a coherent sentence, "The answer to the first question? ... I'm laughing too. Well, actually I... well, look, I mean he has made clear that uh, uhh..."

Then he suddenly froze -- for seven agonizing seconds.

Finally, Biden said, "The answer is, I believe he has in the past essentially acknowledged that he was — there are certain things that he would do or did do. But look, when I was asked that question on air, I answered it honestly, but it’s not much of a — I don’t think it matters a whole lot in terms of this next meeting we’re about to have.”

As for the second question, Biden responded, “I verify first and then trust.”

According to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll, about 40% of voters in the 2020 election believed then-presidential candidate Joe Biden was experiencing some form of dementia or mental illness. That same poll showed that about 61% of voters believed that Biden should acknowledge his health issue publicly.
