I am not a doctor, but, I have cared for close family members with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and if you ask me, that’s exactly what is wrong with Joe Biden. He has all the biggest symptoms, and the number one symptom he displays is the uncontrollable angry outbursts. These are happening much more frequently with Joe these days, which tells me that he’s getting more and more confused and unable to control himself.
Confusion or misunderstanding can also lead to anger and aggression. According to Visiting Angels, “Confusion is one of the leading causes of anger and aggression in Alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers. Confusion can be triggered by lost trains of thought, mixed up memories, or a sudden change in the environment, such as a change from one caregiver to another.”
This is especially important to note for communication as well. As a caregiver, you are in direct communication and contact with the patient, therefore, it is crucial that you articulate your instructions in a simple, concise manner.
Additionally, it’s important that you as the caregiver try to communicate with as little irritability and stress as possible. We understand that caregiving is a strenuous job, but for the benefit of you and your loved one, it is crucial to make sure you properly communicate with someone who has dementia.
The most common reason people who suffer from dementia lash out in anger is because they are feeling sad or scared. As dementia worsens, people lose the ability to place experiences in context. Some people, even those who didn’t have a history of getting angry, can get so frustrated and scared by this disorientation that they get angry.
Loud noises, overactive environments, physical clutter, large crowds, or being surrounded by unknown people are common factors in patients feeling overwhelmed. In this case, environment and emotional factors go hand in hand.
Ultimately, emotional triggers and environmental factors play a key role in causing anger and aggression. Consider the type of environment your loved one is in and how much interaction and stimuli they receive. Be sure to cater to their emotions to avoid outbursts.
And that’s what happened at the SOTU. A very confused Joe Biden began yelling and screaming again…and he was so confused, you can’t even understand what he’s saying.

Here’s what people online had to say:
“How is it possible that this guy is the “Leader of the ‘Free’ World”? How???”
“Too many greedy people couldn’t make money so they stole the elections and planned this vegetable in the White House.”
“Once again, his Handlers probably told him to sound “passionate” and he’s so out of it and confused, that was the best he could do”
“What the hell did he say and why doesn’t the media demand he clarify himself? If it was Trump, they sure as hell would”
This is what it felt like, right?
