House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) responded to FOX News host Neil Cavuto's question of President Joe Biden's mental acuity after he was unable to recall the name of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. In an interview on Tuesday, Clyburn said this is "a stuttering issue" and "it doesn't affect his brain at all."
CAVUTO: Congressman, I have to tell you, you haven’t avoided the media. You haven’t avoided any networks. You always talk to us throughout this whole process. I know you're not the president of the United States, but a lot of people are beginning to wonder, like the other day when he forgot his defense secretary’s name. Is there something we should be worried about or much ado about nothing?
REP. CLYBURN: This is much ado about nothing. I think you know as well as I do, I talked with the president about this. He has what we call stuttering. It’s always been a problem with this president. He’s been very open with that. It doesn’t affect his brain at all. But it sometimes affects his speech. So that’s an issue that all of us know is there. I don’t know why we keep trying to make something out of it.
