(Republican Party News) – We’re not even halfway through the abysmal Biden regime and it looks like the White House just might need to be elder-proofed.
New reports indicate there are some pretty substantial behind-the-scenes fears about Joe Biden’s physical prowess and his ability to perform basic actions, like walking and stepping over cords.
“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 New York Times wrote in a report that attempts to paint Biden as being engaged but also hindered by his physical and mental decline.
Biden is currently 79-years-old, which is older than former President Ronald Reagan when Reagan left office.
The report, which the Times claimed was sourced from multiple interviews with unnamed sources, said those around Biden say he “looks older than just a few years ago.”
Well, no kidding. Biden has looked elderly and frail since he started his campaign to run for president. There’s no denying he’s aged rapidly over the course of the last several years and his mental decline has been most obvious, not just to those around him but to the entire world.
As President Biden insists he plans to run for a second term, his age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him and his party. Polls show many Americans consider him too old, and some Democratic strategists do not think he should run again. https://t.co/OxncGGcbL4

The report said aides “quietly watch out for him.”
“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,” the report said, noting that Biden “stays out of public view at night.”
“I do feel it’s inappropriate to seek that office after you’re 80 or in your 80s,” David Gergen, a former presidential adviser, said.
“I have just turned 80 and I have found over the last two or three years I think it would have been unwise for me to try to run any organization. You’re not quite as sharp as you once were,” he said.
That is especially the case for Joe Biden who appears to suffer from some kind of cognitive issue in addition to old age.
Biden is so weak and too old. Critics thought Ronald Reagan was confused. Biden said Iranians instead of Ukrainians. Jeeze.
When will America wean itself off this gerontocracy? She deserves so much better.

Of course, it’s not fair to categorize people by their age alone and many agree.
“Right now, there’s no evidence that the age of Biden should matter one ounce,” S. Jay Olshansky, a longevity specialist at the University of Illinois Chicago, said. “If people don’t like his policies, they don’t like what he says, that’s fine, they can vote for someone else. But it’s got nothing to do with how old he is.”
Of course, age alone shouldn’t matter but Joe Biden has proven he’s got issues beyond the digits. Even Olshansky was forced to admit that there are more risks with older age and acknowledged Biden would be 86 at the end of a second term.
“You can’t sugarcoat aging. Things go wrong as we get older, and the risks rise the older we get,” he said.
The report noted that unscripted interactions with the media are limited. That has been obvious since he campaigned from his basement.

Biden has had 16 news conferences, far fewer than his predecessors, Martha Joynt Kumar, a scholar of presidential media strategy, said.
The Times report claimed Biden works a little over five days a week while the White House said he has zero days off.
“President Biden works every day and because chief executives can perform their duties from anywhere in the world, it has long been common for them to spend weekends away from the White House,” Andrew Bates, a deputy press secretary, said.
Right. We all know Joe Biden is resting and relaxing on the weekends at his beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. He’s too frail and elderly not to.
