A former White House stenographer said in an interview out Tuesday that Joe Biden, the 77-year-old Democratic nominee, has ‘lost a step’ since leaving office when President Trump took over.

“That’s not Joe Biden,” former White House stenographer Mike McCormick told Laura Ingraham on Fox News Tuesday night. “That’s a shell of his former self. Joe Biden is a different guy than he was. He doesn’t have the same vitality. I listened to every word Joe Biden spoke.”
McCormick, who worked in the White House for 15 years, including from 2011 to 2017 under the Obama administration, says Biden’s speech at the Democratic National Convention “wasn’t the Biden I knew.”
“When I saw him do his speech at the Democratic National Convention, that wasn’t the Joe Biden I knew,” McCormick said. “That guy was reading from a teleprompter, and it was almost verbatim, and he’s never done that.”
