They accuse Biden of going senile because they are his political opponents and American law allows such defamatory speech with no downside of any significance to them.
Thanks for reminding me, Milo.
Another possibility is that he really is senile...

DId you actually watch Biden's press conference?
Well, no Doc.
HE had pre-submitted questions with the answers on the back of each page where the question was written. They gave him a picture book of the reporters present so he knew which ones to call on for them to ask him the question ha had on paper in front of him. . And even with that at one point he gave the answer for the wrong question.
Good! It minimises the possibly that he would utter misinformation that might prove politically embarrasing to his administration and perplexing to the public. Not to mention misleading foreign governments monitoring his every word for signs of shifts and changes in policy direction into making the wrong responses. Were I in his shoes I would, for preserving the integrity of my message, want to undertake such a stage managed press conference also.
The message he sent was weakness.

I agree that it could certainly be construed that way Doc but equally it could be seen as caution, prudence.

It depends on how you look at it.

How do you think Xi, Putin, the Iranians and Kim are looking at it? Plus Biden made a lot of campaign promises then has ended up not undoing everything Trump did like he promised. On the other hand he did not buy any of them "friendship bracelets" like he did for Obama.
