Doocy Challenges Jean-Pierre: Can Biden Be Trusted with the Nuclear Codes?

Fox News’ Peter Doocy questioned White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about President Joe Biden’s ability to handle the nuclear codes in light of a recent report by Special Counsel Robert Hur that detailed Biden’s alleged issues with his memory. The report included information that Biden exhibited “diminished faculties” and “significant limitations” during his interview with the special counsel. During a press briefing, Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre on who was helping Biden run the country, given the report’s findings. Jean-Pierre responded with vague observations and dismissed the report as not living in reality. The exchange raised concerns about whether Biden should be trusted with the nuclear codes. Additionally, in 2021, House Democrats asked Biden to relinquish sole control over the country’s nuclear arsenal, citing concern over the potential of a nuclear war initiated by erratic behavior of presidents. Jean-Pierre maintained that Biden’s handling of the economy is evidence of his mental fitness, despite polling that suggests most Americans favor Trump’s economic policies.
