Joe Biden participated in an event to raise funds for the presidential campaign. While he was on stage, he suddenly froze, staring at the audience. Barack Obama saved him from this predicament. This is another video that raises doubts about the health of the US president.

Joe Biden appeared at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles. The venue hosted a fundraiser for the incumbent US president's campaign. The Democrats could announce success—the fundraiser ended with a record collection of 28 million dollars.

However, during the event, an incident occurred that once again raised questions about President Joe Biden's condition and health.

In one of the recordings from Los Angeles, you can see the head of state suddenly freeze, staring at the crowd gathered under the stage. The former President of the United States, Barack Obama, saves him from this predicament. Obama grabs Biden by the hand and leads him off the stage.

Biden's health issues

This is not the first concerning video featuring Joe Biden in recent times. Now and then, videos of the US president's public appearances surface online, showing him appearing absent and distracted, raising doubts about Biden's health.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the 81-year-old president's cognitive decline. The journal cites Biden's interlocutors, who claimed that during meetings, the president speaks too quietly and makes long pauses during longer monologues. The interlocutors have wondered if Biden is falling asleep. Meanwhile, Kevin McCarthy, the former Speaker of the House, claimed that Biden had to rely on notes to carry on dialogues. The White House rejected insinuations about the president's health condition.

Let's remember that the 81-year-old Biden is seeking re-election. The presidential election in the United States is scheduled for November 5. The current head of state's rival is expected to be his predecessor - Donald Trump.
