Jill Biden’s Ex-Husband Questions President Biden’s Cognitive Fitness After Stephanopoulos Interview

Burdened by mounting doubts over President Joe Biden's cognitive state, Jill Biden's first husband, Bill Stevenson, openly voiced concerns in a recent interview.

According to Breitbart News, Bill Stevenson said President Biden has "deeper issues" after his ABC News interview.

Bill Stevenson, who was married to Jill Biden from 1970 to 1975, spoke to the New York Post after observing Joe Biden’s recent interview with veteran journalist George Stephanopoulos. Echoes of concern regarding Biden’s cognitive fitness overshadowed this discussion.

A Concerning Interview with George Stephanopoulos

The interview aired on ABC News on a recent Friday night. It featured President Biden divulging details about his six days off at Camp David leading up to a critical presidential debate.

Biden revealed he had been unwell, which compromised his preparation time, fomenting debate over his physical and mental readiness.

Further doubts were fueled during the interview when Biden hesitated over whether he had watched the presidential debate, eventually concluding he hadn't. Although seemingly trivial, this statement sparked a larger conversation about his memory and attentiveness.

Skipping the Cognitive Test Discussion

President Biden was queried about undergoing a cognitive test in a more probing part of the discussion with Stephanopoulos. His response was dismissive. He noted no requirement for such a test, subtly acknowledging daily challenges but refusing an independent assessment.

The increasing spotlight on this subject has ruffled feathers within the Democratic circles, prompting unity in some areas and disarray in others.

Prominent Democrats, donors, media personnel, and voters expressed a chain of concern, advocating for reconsideration of Biden’s candidacy in the upcoming presidential race.

Stevenson's Outlook on Biden and Trump

Despite the swirling controversies, Stevenson, in his interview, shared a rather partisan view, expressing his favor for Donald Trump over Joe Biden.

Pointing out what he perceives as a decline in managerial efficiency and decision-making capability under Biden, Stevenson suggested that a victory for Trump would herald a return to better days witnessed during the previous administration.

I actually hope Biden stays in the race and gets beaten by Trump. That would be best for the country. My life was better, the economy was better, everything was better under Trump.

Stevenson's remarks pushed the debate into the public eye, "It’s clear Joe Biden has deeper issues,” he stated. These comments resonate with a segment of the populace concerned about leadership amid mounting global and domestic challenges.

Presidential Decline or Media Frenzy?

While critics argue that Biden’s age and recent appearances symbolize a declining fit for office, supporters argue that public appearances cannot wholly encapsulate a president's capabilities.

The Biden campaign remains firm, countering claims of his withdrawal from the race with repeated affirmations of his continued candidacy.

This isn't the first time Stevenson raised eyebrows. Back in 2020, he claimed that the narrative around how Jill and Joe Biden met was unfounded, casting shadows on their personal stories linked with their public personas.


The interview with Bill Stevenson sheds light on the mounting apprehension surrounding President Biden's cognitive capabilities. While opinions may vary, the importance of a president's mental fitness cannot be overstated. The refusal to take an independent cognitive test and the apparent lapses in memory during the Stephanopoulos interview only fuel speculation and unease among the American people.

As the nation grapples with complex challenges, the president must demonstrate the mental acuity necessary to make sound decisions and guide the country forward. Stevenson's comments serve as a reminder of the need for transparency and accountability in the highest office of the land.
