White House denies Biden has dementia: 'It's a no'

Reporters hammered White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Tuesday to answer for President Biden's widely panned debate performance last week that re-ignited concerns over his mental fitness.

"All of us saw what happened on Thursday, where [Biden] simply could not form coherent answers to many ... of the questions," one reporter asked, warning that his next question was a delicate one and the president "may not like to hear it" if he's watching.

"But I think the American people need to get a yes or a no answer on this: Does President Biden, at 81 years old, have Alzheimer's, or any form of dementia or degenerative illness that causes these sorts of lapses?" the reporter asked. "And it's a yes or no question."

"I have an answer for you, are you ready for it," Jean-Pierre responded, looking visibly annoyed. "It's a no. And I hope you're asking the other guy the same exact question"

The "other guy" presumably meant Biden's opponent, former President Trump.
