"And I might add, by the way, I think what happened in Portland, where a, one of the Trump guys riding along in vans inciting response, shooting rubber bullets I guess, or paintballs, apparently there was someone shot by someone in the crowd, with a bullet, killed. I think that person should meet the legal requirements of whatever that calls for, it should be investigated, and it should follow through on what needs to be done. Let's make sure justice is done."

In my experience, physical exertion exacerbates dementia. No scientific backing that I’m aware of, just anecdotal evidence.

IDK maybe NYP is stuffed with Bernie supporters who delight in going off-script and not carrying water for the Official Party Narrative.

IMO Biden will be replaced before the election. He is obviously not up to the challenge.
Brain changes. Seniors may begin to stutter often due to neurogenic reasons. Perhaps a stroke has altered areas of their brain that control language processing and correct formulation of words. Perhaps a fall or bump may have caused a concussion or other mental conditions.
Confusion. Advanced forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, may make it difficult to form or arrange words. This goes beyond “tip of one’s tongue” to aphasia, which is not being able to construct full sentences to find the right words.
Emotional difficulties/return of past anxieties. Some of the other concerns of getting older may combine to make someone feel terrible emotionally, everything from financial anxieties to declining health can trigger difficulties expressing oneself or finding the proper words. Someone who may have stuttered as a child may see it return decades later if similar feelings of confusion, uncertainty, anxiety, and loneliness are present. This theory was suggested in a 2010 study from the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s National Institutes of Health.
Medication changes. A stutter or unusual changes in diction or speaking patterns could be a side effect of certain pharmaceuticals, something that seniors may be taking more of than they did earlier in life.
Mechanical changes. Problems with or injuries to the mouth, teeth, jaw or gums may also result in an inability to form words. This can include cysts, tumors or other obstructions that can cause pain. Though loved ones or caregivers may notice a stutter when it begins occurring, it may be difficult to figure out why it may be appearing.
