White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to invalidate Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s handling of classified documents which has cast a huge shadow on his mental fitness since its release.

During a press briefing, Jean-Pierre was asked about the report by a reporter who said, “If the special counsel says President Biden has significant limitations on memory, then who is helping him run the country?”

The reporter went further, saying, “The President of the United States runs the country. The commander-in-chief runs the country. How can he be trusted with nuclear codes? I get that you are saying nobody in the building would say they have an issue with his memory, but just the little part of what we get to see, he has made mistake after mistake after mistake on camera this week.”

Responding to the question, Jean-Pierre said, “I want to be very clear here. The reality is, that report, that part of the report does not live in reality. It just doesn’t.”

When the reporter asked if the special counsel lied about Biden’s memory in its report, Jean-Pierre did not outrightly say the counsel was “lying” but she did call the remarks “gratuitous.”

“It was gratuitous. You heard from Ian Sams, my colleague. It is unacceptable. And it does not live in reality. That is just the facts. And, and, look, it is a closed case. That’s what the special counsel said,” she stated.

Hur’s report revealed that Biden’s memory is “hazy” and “significantly limited,” saying, “In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘if it was 2013 — when did I stop being Vice President?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘in 2009, am I still Vice President?’).”

“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died. And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him. Among other things, he mistakenly said he ‘had a real difference’ of opinion with General Karl Eikenberry, when, in fact, Eikenberry was an ally whom Mr. Biden cited approvingly in his Thanksgiving memo to President Obama,” the report added.
