It’s time to question Biden’s mental health

I'm sorry -- but these are the left's rules, and because they set them, I'm going to play them. President Biden is not in good mental health. Just this week he forgot the name of the Defense Department and its leader Secretary Lloyd Austin. Published March 10, 2021
