Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino shared on Sunday morning that he received an inside scoop on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s health.
Biden is exhibiting “cognitive decline,” Bongino confirmed, and his condition is worsening.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask,” he tweeted.
Bongino also said the Democratic Party was evaluating their choices and “are going to have to make a decision soon.”

As the New York Post reports, Biden’s health makes his selection of a vice president that much more important
“Biden, 77, would become the oldest person ever elected president if he triumphs in November and many believe he would only serve one term,” the New York Post reports. “That combination of factors has injected particular urgency into the veepstakes as whoever is selected would become an instant 2024 frontrunner and potentially shape the party for years beyond.”
The report adds: “In March, Biden promised to choose a woman for the job and since then may names have risen and fallen. Sen. Kamala Harris, Rep. Karen Bass, and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice are among the current finalists.”
