Democrats scramble to defend Biden’s memory after documents report

US Democrats are scrambling to defend President Joe Biden after a special counsel report labelled him an “elderly man with a poor memory”.

Democrats remain frustrated over Robert Hur’s 345-page report on Biden.

They suggested the Trump-appointed US attorney’s comments were politically motivated.

The President is said to be furious with the report, especially at the suggestion he forgot the day his son Beau died.

Democrats believe Biden should not have been allowed to be interviewed after news of the October 7 attacks in Israel, suggesting preoccupation skewed the report results.
