The longstanding concerns about President Joe Biden's age and memory intensified on Thursday after the release of a special counsel's report investigating his possession of classified documents. The report described the 81-year-old Democrat's memory as “hazy,” “fuzzy,” “faulty,” “poor" and having “significant limitations.” It noted that Biden could not recall defining milestones in his own life such as when his son Beau died or when he served as vice president. “My memory is fine,” Biden responded Thursday night from the White House, where he grew visibly angry in denying that he had forgotten when his son died. Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46. Biden said the report's descriptions of his memory and his son's death were “extraneous commentary” that “had no place in this report.” About his son's death, Biden said, “How in the hell dare he raise that?” “Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it wasn't any of their damn business,” he said. "Every Memorial Day we hold a service remember him, attended by friends and family and people loved him. I don’t need anyone, I don't need anyone to remind me when he passed away.” In response to reporters' questions about his memory, Biden disputed the report's statements and said he's “the most qualified person in this country to be president.” #joebiden #memory #angry Daily Mail Homepage: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ Daily Mail Facebook: https://facebook.com/dailymail Daily Mail IG: https://instagram.com/dailymail Daily Mail Snap: https://www.snapchat.com/discover/Daily-Mail/8392137033 Daily Mail Twitter: https://twitter.com/MailOnline Daily Mail Pinterest: https://pinterest.co.uk/dailymail ‘My memory is fine’: Biden clashes with reporters as he defends his mental competence Get the free Daily Mail mobile app: https://dailymail.co.uk/mobile
