During the 2020 election, anyone with a brain could see there were concerns about Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities.
If you recall, that was the whole reason behind Trump taking a cognitive test.
A test that Joe Biden made fun of, yet we have yet to see him take the same test and have the results published.
While many were concerned about Biden’s age, especially when it came to running for a second term, the mainstream media was so anti-Trump, they never even considered bringing up the issue.
That has changed considerably with Biden now polling among the worst administrations in the history of this country.
The New York Times dropped a bombshell piece regarding Biden’s age this week.
It was not so much the content as the fact that the paper finally admitted that Joe Biden might not be all there.
Peter Baker, the NYT White House correspondent, wrote, “But the reality is that managing the schedule of the oldest president in American history presents distinct challenges.
“And as Mr. Biden insists he plans to run for a second term, his age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him, his team and his party.”
The fact is that Joe Biden cannot keep the schedule other White House occupants have kept and it is widely agreed that he simply runs out of gas.
During his most recent trip abroad, Biden missed numerous evening events for the G7 summit and the NATO meetings.
His staff claims he is up late working, out of sight, but I think we all know that not to be the case.
Joe is more than likely tucked into bed the moment the sun goes down to recharge his cells like a solar panel.
Baker continues that Biden’s age is “a sensitive topic in the West Wing.”
Aides have concerns, with Baker noting, “He often shuffles when he walks, and aides worry he will trip on a wire.
“He stumbles over words during public events, and they hold their breath to see if he makes it to the end without a gaffe.
“Although White House officials insist they make no special accommodations the way Reagan’s team did, privately they try to guard Mr. Biden’s weekends in Delaware as much as possible.
“He is generally a five- or five-and-a-half-day-a-week president, although there are times when he is called at any hour regardless of the day.
“He stays out of public view at night and has taken part in fewer than half as many news conferences or interviews as recent predecessors.”
To be clear, this is not about picking on an old, weak man; this is about challenging Joe Biden’s fitness for the most demanding job on the planet.
This is a 20-hour-a-day job, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for four straight years, but Biden cannot work more than about eight hours a day and usually only works about four to four and a half days a week.
He is in Delaware recharging every weekend and after a trip, we often see him at the White House for maybe an hour or two a day until he is able to catch up.
The fact the New York Times is now pointing this out just about seals Joe Biden’s fate for 2024.
The question now is, who do they want to replace him?
