President Joe Biden launched some verbal jabs at a reporter following a brief campaign event at an event where he was pandering to black voters in Philadelphia.

“President Biden, will you be serving your full four-year term or handing over power to Vice President Harris?” a reporter shouted as Biden met with supporters on a runway in Philadelphia.

“Are you okay? Are you alright?” Biden replied, according to a clip posted by C-SPAN. “You’re not hurt are you? I said are you okay? Did you fall on your head or something?”

Biden and Harris have launched an outreach program to try and reel in black voters as more of them flock to former President Donald Trump, according to recent polling.

Many who are now Trump supporters have complained that their finances are worse under Biden and Harris, while others are angry at the administration for its lax immigration and border security policies, which have led local Democratic leaders to shift tax dollars away from programs for citizens to support migrants in the country illegally.

Polls have shown throughout Biden’s presidency that a majority of Americans are concerned about what they see as his declining physical and mental capacities.

The issues were brought to the forefront again in February in an official report released by special counsel Robert Hur, who concluded that Biden illegally retained classified information during his time as a U.S. senator and vice president. Hur wrote in his report that he declined to recommend prosecuting Biden because of his decimated mental status.

Just the news noted:

Hur’s 388-page report released Thursday may have spared Biden the spectacle of a criminal prosecution similar to that his Justice Department imposed on Donald Trump, but it delivered a devastating blow to the 46th president’s re-election hopes by going out of its way to explain criminal charges weren’t levied in part because jurors might see Biden as a dottering, forgetful old man incapable of criminal intent.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote in explaining his rationale for refusing prosecution. “…It would be difficult to convince a jury they should convict him – by then a former president who will be at least well into his eighties – of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

“Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen,” the report concluded.

Hur added for good measure he believed Biden suffered from “diminished faculties in advancing age.”

After Hur’s report was released, Fox News host Laura Ingraham discussed his findings with contributor and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, noting at one point during the segment that Democrats were already refuting Hur’s characterizations of Biden’s mental capacity.

“I mean, Newt, come on,” Ingraham said, before adding a stunning detail:

I have it on good authority…a friend of mine was in the White House a couple of weeks ago, and she is not a Trump fan, let me just say this… She was up close and personal with the president, and was shocked — her words were ‘shocked’ about his state.
