A new report has revealed that Joe Biden’s age and lack of energy have become a major concern for voters as he prepares to run for re-election in 2024. The White House has struggled to hide this issue, and their attempts to do so have only made matters worse.
Axios, a liberal publication, has tried to downplay the extent of the issue. However, the fact that the president is rarely seen in unscripted situations or answering hostile questions from the media only adds to concerns about his mental and physical health.
The White House’s protective bubble around Biden, which prevents him from being exposed to even the most basic situations, is a clear indication of his condition. The more they try to cover for him, the more they highlight his decline.
The report shows that Biden rarely appears in public in the mornings, evenings, or on weekends. White House officials have admitted that it is difficult to schedule events with the president during these times, with the vast majority of his public appearances taking place on weekdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Biden’s schedule for 2023 reveals that he has only attended four public events before 10 a.m., just a dozen public events after 6 p.m., and has had 12 full weekends with no public events. This is astonishing when you consider how active presidents are expected to be in order to do their jobs properly.
There is a simple explanation for Biden’s light and tight schedule. He is likely sundowning, a condition that sees those of an advanced age grow angry, tired, and anxious after the sun goes down.
The White House’s response to this issue has been to treat Americans like they are stupid. They have dismissed the report as “false” and offered misleading anecdotes about Biden’s energy levels.
As the 2024 presidential race heats up, the president’s deficiencies will become more acute. He will struggle to campaign in any real sense, and it will be up to Republicans to keep the spotlight on Biden. If that doesn’t happen, the basement strategy may well succeed again.
