We all know aging in and of itself isn’t a bad thing. But when the usual signs of aging (beyond wrinkles and a slower gait) start affecting those expected to protect and lead our nation, there’s hardly anything worse.
And for Joe Biden, that’s certainly the case.
Of course, his staff isn’t going to admit that anytime soon. Instead, they will try to keep up the charade, adding more smoke and mirrors, for as long as they can.
If it seems like a horrible plan and one destined to fail, you’re not wrong.
But no one ever accused the political left of being genius.
By now, we’ve all seen the many, many gaffes of Biden – how he can’t remember where he is, what he’s doing, or who people he’s known for decades are. We’ve also seen him take a number of physical spills in recent days. I mean, how many times has he fallen up the stairs to Air Force One now?
And yet, his staff is determined to keep the truth of how bad things are under wraps.
Well, for starters, a shorter set of stairs for Air Force One is in the works.
Secondly, Biden is hardly attending any state and important dinners. Instead, he’s “preserving his energy” and heading to bed. Of course, the White House is trying to claim that it’s not a matter of being fatigued but that he’s leaving the mingling and relationship-building to younger, newer-to-the-game faces.
The third salve: bigger fonts on everything POTUS needs to see and read, most notably, the teleprompter.
And lastly, note cards. If you’ve been paying much attention to Biden lately, you’ll have noticed these note cards found in all sorts of places, where he’s supposed to stand, on the table in front of him, even on the walls around him. And all of them are simple little reminders of what he’s supposed to be doing, saying, or needs.
To be sure, it’s not a good look for the man who is supposed to be the leader of the free world.
And yet, his staff apparently thinks these simple fixes will make us believe that Biden is ok, that he’s capable.
Oh, how very wrong they are…
