A prominent doctor and professor of medicine at New York University School of Medicine came out with a foreboding revelation on Thursday night during a segment on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.
Although many have already speculated that there are concerns regarding Joe Biden’s recent cognitive health, Dr. Marc Siegel suggested that it may have do do with the technological advancements in aneurysms that Biden did not receive with his two previous aneurysms.
Dr. Siegel’s commentary can be seen below:
“He had those aneurysms clipped, surgically, back in 1988. You know what happened in 1990? We developed a new technique to do that where we went in through the artery itself which was a miracle, a change.
Now we do these procedures with something called a coil which we put in right through the artery into the brain. It’s a miraculous technological advancement. He didn’t have that.
He had a great surgeon who said he’s fine now, but I’ve looked at studies from 2000 and 2006 and again, I’m not necessarily talking about him. I’m talking about a patient who had the procedure that he had, with a 1 centimeter aneurysm with some leaking into the brain.
Down the line, you can see, quite often, cognitive changes; problems with thinking, problems with concentration, problems with orientation.”

Of course, since Dr. Marc Siegel is not actually Biden’s personal physician, he can’t speak to Biden’s actual health, and even stated that his recent bloody-eyeball incident at a CNN town hall was not at all concerning.
From the Daily Wire:
Siegel, who qualified what he said by noting that he is not Biden’s physician, said he believes that Biden’s bloody eye was a subconjunctival hemorrhage, which he said is not a major issue.
Siegel did note, though, that Biden’s mental health appears to be a problem which he said was “very concerning” to him as he thinks Biden is having problems with “thinking, orientation, and memory.”
“The other clip you showed where he appeared confused, that’s been happening with increasing amount where he seems to forget what state he’s in or the timeline of the Parkland school shooting,” Siegel said. “Things like that are really concerning to me and again, I don’t know the answer to why that’s happening.”
But clearly there are ties to brain aneurysms and cognitive ability. Even Jill Biden wrote about the possible issues with “governed speech” in her recent autobiography, Where the Light Enters:
“He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech.”
Sounds like even Jill Biden would have to admit that there could be a correlation between Joe’s previous aneurysms and his current “governed speech?” Maybe all of the negative press is founded?
As an “old white guy”, headlines about health issues are never desirable, especially when they are as sensational as having your eyeball fill with blood during a town hall. It was rather advantageous for Biden, though, given that it helped to cover up a MAJOR slip up by Joe Biden.
Yes, at the CNN town hall where the bloody eye incident occurred, Joe was asked a question about why he can claim he doesn’t receive money from the fossil fuel industry when he would be attending a fundraiser by a fossil fuel company co-founder.
From USA Today:
Former Vice President Joe Biden attended a fundraiser Thursday that was hosted by a fossil fuel company co-founder after he faced backlash because he has pledged not to accept money from the fossil fuel industry.
During CNN’s town hall on climate change Wednesday night, Biden was accused by an audience member of taking money from a fossil fuel executive despite signing on to the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge.
“He’s not a fossil fuel executive,” Biden responded, referring to Andrew Goldman, one of the fundraiser’s hosts.
Andrew Goldman is co-founder of Western LNG (Liquified Natural Gas), though not technically an “executive.”
Do you think that Joe should give himself another bloody eye to take the attention off of this? Or will he be able to ride this out all the way to 2020?
