President Biden guided his security team around the White House gardens after the 79-year-old appeared disoriented and asked for directions. The president, along with First Lady Jill Biden, was participating in a tree-planting event on the building’s south lawn to honor groundskeeper Dale Haney. As the ceremony ended, President Biden strolled toward some bushes before turning around and asking his team, “Which way are we going?”
In a sign of the president’s confusion, his security team subtly interrupts Biden to redirect: “This way, sir.”
In an apparent attempt to recover from his mistake, the president joked, “I thought we were going the other way. Well, I want to go that way.”
A member of his team reassured him, “You can go like this if you want.” The First Lady echoed their remarks, adding, “You can do whatever you want.”
As the President walked back toward the White House, he muttered, “I notice how much freedom I have.”
Social media users reacted to the scene online, with some suggesting that the footage could be evidence of the president’s failing health.
Twitter user SueTaddei commented: “He has no idea he’s the boss.”
Another user, Vasyk Marian, asked: “Is he still fit to work in the office? Too weak and a loser.”
BaroneKara added, “I wonder what his undercover men think…how embarrassing.”
Widespread speculation about Mr. Biden led the US president to undergo an assessment of his abilities in November 2021. White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor said he was “still fit for service”.

On Tuesday, the US president had yet another mistake as he grossly mispronounced the name of the new British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak.
President Biden delivered a speech at the White House on the Hindu holiday of Diwali, marking Sunak’s appointment which he celebrated as a “milestone”.
Unfortunately, his comments on the tribute to the new Conservative Party leader were overshadowed by his mispronunciation of Sunak’s name as ‘Rashi Sanuk’.
President Biden seemed even more confused about the procedures for Snape’s appointment, adding: “[He is] He is expected to become Prime Minister, I think, tomorrow when he goes to see the King.”
