Joe Biden’s “Signs of Slipping” Raise Concerns as He Appears to Doze Off During G7 Summit

Amid growing concerns about his cognitive health, President Joe Biden appeared to doze off during a G7 summit meeting, further fueling speculation about his fitness for office.

During the G7 summit in Apulia, Italy, President Biden seemed to momentarily fall asleep at a round-table meeting, prompting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to rise and wake him. This incident adds to a series of awkward moments and public blunders that have increasingly raised questions about the 81-year-old president’s mental acuity, according to Hindustan Times.

These concerns were highlighted in a June 4 Wall Street Journal report, which noted “signs of slipping” in Biden’s behavior. During the summit, Biden also appeared to lose his way and wandered off during a parachute display, initiating an unexpected conversation with an officer instead of mingling with fellow leaders. Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni had to guide him back for a group photo.

Social media quickly reacted to these moments, with users expressing alarm over Biden’s behavior. Comments included concerns about his need for medical attention and jokes about world leaders acting as his babysitters. told by MNS.

Despite the backlash, Biden’s supporters continue to defend him, attempting to counter the narrative of cognitive decline. The president’s actions at the summit have intensified scrutiny from critics who are closely monitoring his behavior and body language.

The G7 summit, attended by leaders from France, Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, and the United States, focused on critical global issues such as migration, the war in Ukraine, and artificial intelligence.

On Thursday, the leaders agreed on a $50 billion loan to Ukraine using frozen Russian assets, a move Biden described as a “significant outcome” and a message to Russia that the G7 is not backing down. They also discussed efforts to secure a ceasefire in the Gaza conflict.
