WATCH: Biden awkwardly appears to wait for handshake despite already getting one

President Joe Biden appeared to be waiting for a handshake that he had already received during a public appearance on Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) turned around to shake hands with Biden and the other U.S. officials with him after he delivered a speech. A few seconds after shaking hands with Biden, the president appeared to reach out his hand again, according to footage from RNC Research.

Tuesday's handshake mishap is not the first time Biden has appeared to wait for a handshake, as he seemingly turned to shake hands with no one after a speech in Tel Aviv, Israel, last month.

The newly-resurfaced debate on Biden's age and mental fitness
Why people are suddenly focusing on Biden's age

Much of the talk around whether President Biden should run for a second term in office revolves around his age and perceived mental sharpness compared to younger potential candidates. Why is this subject in focus lately, and what do his critics and defenders say? Here's everything you need to know:

Just how old is Biden?
President Biden is 79 years old. By the end of his term, he'll be 82. And he insists he's running for re-election, which would make him 86 by the time he left office, eight years older than the average life expectancy for an American male. Ronald Reagan began his second term at the age of 73 and is widely believed to have suffered from Alzheimer's toward the end of his presidency.

Biden surveys flood damage in Kentucky, pledges more U.S. help

U.S. President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden on Monday witnessed the damage from deadly and devastating storms that have resulted in the worst flooding in Kentucky's history, as they visited the state to meet with families and first responders.

At least 37 people have died since last month's deluge, which dropped 8 to 10-1/2 inches of rain in only 48 hours. Gov. Andy Beshear told Biden that authorities expect to add at least one other death to the total. The National Weather Service said Sunday that flooding remains a threat, warning of more thunderstorms through Thursday.

The president said the nation has an obligation to help all its people, declaring the federal government would provide support until residents were back on their feet. Behind him as he spoke was a single-story house that the storm had dislodged and then left littered on the ground, tilted sideways.

“We have the capacity to do this - it's not like it's beyond our control,” Biden said. “We're staying until everybody's back to where they were.”

In the summer heat and humidity, Biden's button-down shirt was covered in sweat. Pacing with a microphone in his hand, he eschewed formal remarks as he pledged to return once the community was rebuilt.

“The bad news for you is I'm coming back, because I want to see it,” the president said.

The Bidens were greeted warmly by Beshear and his wife, Britainy, when they arrived in eastern Kentucky. They immediately drove to see devastation from the storms in Breathitt County, stopping at the site of where a school bus, carried by floodwaters, was crashed into a partially collapsed building.

Beshear said the flooding was “unlike anything we've ever seen” in the state and credited Biden with swiftly approving federal assistance.

He praised responders who “have moved heaven and earth to get where we are, what, about nine days from when this hit,” he said.

Attending a briefing on the flooding's impact with first responders and recovery specialists at Marie Roberts Elementary School in Lost Creek, Biden told a delegation of Kentucky leaders that he would do whatever was necessary to help.

“I promise you, if it's legal, we'll do it,” he said. “And if it's not legal, we'll figure out how to change the law.”

The president emphasized that politics have no place in disaster response, noting his frequent political battles with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “We battle all the times on issues,” Biden said, but in helping Kentuckians rebuild, “we're all one team.”

Monday's trip is Biden's second to the state since taking office last year. He previously visited in December after tornadoes whipped through Kentucky, killing 77 people and leaving a trail of destruction.

“I wish I could tell you why we keep getting hit here in Kentucky,” Beshear said recently. “I wish I could tell you why areas where people may not have much continue to get hit and lose everything. I can't give you the why, but I know what we do in response to it. And the answer is everything we can. These are our people. Let's make sure we help them out.”

Biden has expanded federal disaster assistance to Kentucky, ensuring the federal government will cover the full cost of debris removal and other emergency measures.

Biden’s cognitive decline is scary, who’s controlling USA’s nuclear button?

The West is involved in a dangerous conflict with Russia over Ukraine. As both sides have dug in their heels and are levelling charges of war crimes against each other, there is a real risk of things spiraling out of control and leading to nuclear war.

The US is the pre-eminent superpower in the world today, and it has taken the lead in supplying advanced weaponry to Ukraine and urging it to fight rather than negotiate with Russia. The Pentagon is training Ukrainian troops, and there has been a dramatic surge in number of US troops stationed in Europe to almost 100,000 since the conflict broke out. At such a time, it becomes additionally important for top leaders to have calm and collected minds.

However, the mental condition of 79-year-old US President Joe Biden has left many worried. A former White House physician said his cognitive abilities have deteriorated to the point that they present a “national security issue.” Now a new clip put out by @disclosetv shows Biden fumbling and reading out everything written on a teleprompter, including prompts such as “repeat the line”.

"Biden turned around to shake hands with the flood water, but alas, the water just kept flowing past him."

Poor Joe. He should resign and just make the best of the time he has left before the nice men in the white coats drop by.

Biden approval rating jumps to its highest level in two months in Reuters-Ipsos poll

President Biden’s approval rating rose to its highest level in two months in a Reuters-Ipsos poll released on Tuesday.

Biden’s approval rating rose to 40 percent, up 2 percentage points, while his disapproval rating fell to 55 percent.

The increase is partially fueled by more Democrats approving of Biden’s job performance. The poll showed Biden’s approval among Democrats rose 9 points from last month to 78 percent.

Only 12 percent of Republicans approved of Biden’s performance.

Biden’s approval rating in the poll hit its lowest point in May at 36 percent, and it has remained below 50 percent since August 2021, according to the poll.

The president’s improved performance in the poll comes as he has attained a series of legislative and other successes.

Biden successfully pushed for Congress to pass the CHIPS and Science Act to provide billions of dollars to the domestic semiconductor industry and the Honoring Our PACT Act to expand health care for veterans exposed to toxins and burn pits while serving.

The Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act on Sunday after Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) reached a deal on the climate, health care and tax package, and the House plans to take up the bill this week.

The Biden administration also successfully conducted a drone strike that killed Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al Qaeda and a key planner in the 9/11 attacks, at the end of last month.

Awkward video shows Biden stuck in his jacket as he’s forced to ask Jill for help
Biden’s signature aviator sunglasses, balanced precariously on top of his mask, also fell on the tarmac

Joe Biden endured an awkward moment caught on video as he struggled to put on his jacket and ended up dropping his signature aviator sunglasses while stepping off of his Marine One helicopter.

First lady Jill Biden had to step in and help her husband get hold of the jacket’s sleeve which was blowing away in the wind caused by the chopper’s blades.

Biden Sees Signs Inflation Moderating After Promising July Data

President Joe Biden said there are signs inflation is beginning to moderate after it slowed more than expected in July, giving him a much-needed boost ahead of the November midterm elections.

“We’re seeing a stronger labor market where jobs are booming and Americans are working and we’re seeing some signs that inflation may be beginning to moderate,” Biden said Wednesday before signing a veterans health-care bill, calling the numbers evidence his “economic plan is working.”

Yet he cautioned that the nation could still face economic headwinds in the coming months due to the war in Ukraine and supply chain disruption stemming from pandemic shutdowns in Asia.

“It’s far from done, our effort to bring inflation down, but we’re moving in the right direction,” said Biden.

High consumer prices have wreaked havoc on Americans’ budgets, causing political damage to Biden and Democrats that could cost them control of Congress in the fall. The president’s approval rating fell to a new low of 38% at the end of July, according to a Gallup poll.

Since then, Biden has won several victories on key parts of his agenda, including the Senate’s passage of a hard-fought tax, health and climate bill. He also signed a new gun safety law, subsidies for US semiconductor manufacturing and protocols for Finland’s and Sweden’s entry to NATO. Democrats hope slowing inflation will add to their momentum and help them limit their losses in November.

The consumer price index increased 8.5% from a year earlier, a still-high figure but down from the 9.1% spike in June that was the largest in four decades, Labor Department data showed Wednesday. Prices did not change compared to last month. A decline in gasoline and airfare offset increases in other areas like food and housing.

The numbers beat the expectations of economists who projected in a Bloomberg survey a 0.2% rise in headline CPI from a month ago and an 8.7% compared to last year.

'We owe you big': See how Biden honored Jon Stewart before signing bill

President Joe Biden took a moment to honor comedian Jon Stewart's advocacy of veterans ahead of signing the PACT Act, which will expand health care for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.

While Biden is tackling inflation and shaping a green economy for the US, Britain is being left behind

Over the weekend, US Democrats overcame months of political struggle to pass the Inflation Reduction Act in the Senate, marking a major victory for the president, Joe Biden, and for “Bidenomics” before the US midterms.

The bill makes the single largest climate investment in US history, with $369bn for climate and clean energy. It is expected to enable the US to get two-thirds of the way towards its Paris agreement commitments while reducing energy costs. It lowers health costs for millions of Americans. It seeks to tackle inflation by directly reducing costs for individuals and by reducing the deficit through closing tax loopholes and increasing tax on corporates and the wealthy.

The act is far from perfect. It is the diminished descendant of the failed Build Back Better Act, a $2tn package that would have radically extended childcare, free community college and subsidised health insurance, but which ultimately failed to secure the support of the Democrat senator Joe Manchin (a necessity given the evenly divided Senate). Winning political support for the act has required rowing back on climate ambition and more extensive plans to reduce costs for families; allowing further drilling for fossil fuels; and carve-outs to protect private equity profits from the corporation tax element of the act. For this reason, the act will and already has come under intense criticism from activists and climate groups.

However, in the face of fierce political opposition it is a major – even landmark – achievement. It is also a win for the activists and economists who have been persistently pushing and providing ideas for the Biden administration to pursue an alternative approach to the economy and environment: market-shaping green industrial strategy to create good, green jobs; social investment; worker power and incentives for employers to offer decent pay, apprenticeships and profit-sharing with communities; higher taxes on the wealthy to reduce inflation and contribute to the costs, including through a new tax on share buybacks which only serve to boost investors’ incomes. These ideas are no longer stuck on the bench.

Historically the US and UK have taken a shared, leading role in the intellectual development and political implementation of new ideas and policy paradigms. Whether we think about the postwar Keynesian consensus, the neoliberal revolution of Thatcher and Reagan or the third way politics of Clinton and Blair, both countries have tended to move in lockstep. Yet right now, in the context of the Inflation Reduction Act in the US and the Conservative party leadership race in the UK, our policy paths are diverging.

The US has further to go than the UK when it comes to reducing climate emissions and building economic justice. The US has significantly higher levels of emissions (on an absolute and per capita basis) than the UK and the US is also the world’s biggest producer of fossil fuels. Similarly, inequality in the US is starker, and poverty deeper than in the UK. Put simply: the land of opportunity is not delivering for too many American citizens.

But Democrat leaders are pushing through a bold agenda to break through deep political polarisation and reset the shape and direction of what US economic success looks like. The irony when we compare this with the UK is that the conditions are far more favourable here for action commensurate to the scale of the climate and nature crisis, an economic strategy that prioritises everyday people and places over wealth and profits, and for extending collective provision of the things and services we all rely on. We have a head start in terms of the social democracy basics. In sharp contrast to the US, there is more consensus across parties on the need for the government to take action on the climate and nature crises. Action taken now would be far less likely to be wiped away by an opposition win than the fragile progressive gains in the US.

‘Dark Brandon’ takes off as left gives Biden an image makeover

Democrats, who have endured 10 months of “Let’s go, Brandon” jokes, are recasting President Biden as a new and different Brandon — the kind who moves seamlessly between the halls of government and the Marvel universe.

The campaign is on to rebrand Mr. Biden as “Dark Brandon,” an all-powerful superhero who steers his legislation successfully through Congress, takes out al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri and shoots lasers from his eyes.

The White House has embraced the Brandon reboot. Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates tweeted “Dark Brandon is crushing it” on Sunday after the Senate passed the sprawling $740 billion climate, tax and health care bill with no Republican votes.

White House senior adviser Neera Tanden and director of digital strategy Rob Flaherty followed it up by tweeting an image of Mr. Biden with laser-red eyes.

“Dark Brandon said ‘here’s the deal’ and then there was a deal,” tweeted Megan Apper, senior adviser for the State Department Bureau of Global Affairs.

Those pushing the “Dark Brandon” theme have resurrected cartoons depicting a dangerous-looking, laser-eyed president. Chinese illustrator Yang Quan created the image after the 2020 election.

Sen. Christopher Murphy, Connecticut Democrat, retweeted the cartoon and was asked about “Dark Brandon” in a Monday night appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

“I’m not going to try to explain that meme, but he is a bit of a superhero this summer,” Mr. Murphy said. “This is a president who has a record of achievement from the gun bill to the veterans’ bill to the Inflation Reduction Act that’s going to rival any president for their first two years.”
