Gingrich on Biden report: ‘Can’t have a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t know what he’s doing’

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) went after President Biden in the wake of a recent special counsel report on the president’s retention of documents.

“[I]n a world this dangerous, you can’t have a have a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t know what he’s doing or where he is,” Gingrich in a interview on “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM with host John Catsimatidis that aired Sunday. 

The report from special counsel Robert Hur, released Thursday, concluded no charges should be brought against the president, but it noted Biden had problems with memory and recall.

“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

“Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him — by then a former president well into his eighties — of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

Biden hit back at the report in a fiery press conference Thursday night, defending his memory and mental capability.

“My memory’s fine. … Take a look at what I’ve done since I became president. … How did that happen? I guess I just forgot what was going on,” he said.

The president also specifically pushed back against Hur’s comments about how he could be perceived by a jury.

“I’m well-meaning and I’m an elderly man and I know what the hell I’m doing. I’ve been president; I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation,” Biden said. 

In the same press conference, however, the president confused the president of Egypt with the president of Mexico, a moment Gingrich expressed concern about in the interview with Catsimatidis.

“[Y]ou watch that and you realize, ‘This is the guy under our system, who is Commander-in-Chief,’” Gingrich said.
