The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The Easter Bunny appears to have stopped President Joe Biden from answering questions about Afghanistan and Pakistan during the White House Easter Egg Roll, sparking sparking speculation on the commander-in-chief's cognitive fitness.
Journalist Thomas Dillon on Monday tweeted a video of the Bunny seemingly interrupting Biden mid-sentence.
"Pakistan should not… and Afghanistan should be..." Biden says before the rabbit directs him away from reporters.
The Republican National Committee posted a video of the interaction from another angle.
"This White House needs the EASTER BUNNY to intercept Biden before he has a chance to answer a question," tweeted Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who served as a physician to Donald Trump.
"He IS NOT ok," Jackson said. "They’re hiding something BIG about his cognitive decline, and they’re going to EVERY length to cover it up!"
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) responded to the video, "Biden’s off-script gaffes are so bad that now even the White House Easter Bunny has to pull him away!"
Biden seems to have been pulled away by Director of White House Planning Meghan Hays, who took a photo of herself taking the bunny costume off next to the president and his wife.
Also on Sunday, Jill Biden can be heard instructing her husband to wave after his speech.
The accusations of cognitive problems come as Biden has reportedly told former President Barack Obama that he plans on running for reelection in 2024, The Hill reported.
