Although the blunder was unfortunate, Joe Biden kept his composure and dismissed the allegations.

Attacks on President Joe Biden connected to his age and state of well-being do not stop. He confused Egypt with Mexico this time while answering the Republican prosecutor's question. Although the mistake was not significant and everybody got the message, he caused an outrage among his opponents.

Lately, the U.S. president dismissed allegations about his inability to deal with top-secret files and made a solid address to his opponents. He insisted that his memory is in good shape and there is no need to raise any issues about it.

He also referred to accusations about not remembering his son's death and dismissed them firmly and thoroughly: "I thought it is not their damn business," he said.

Joe Biden's age is a concern for voters, polls show. The issue will be one of the main axes of political battle before the upcoming 2024 presidential elections. The president's supporters are working hard to deal with the problem.
