It has been well-documented how much Biden struggles. Many Americans are worried about the man’s fitness. And those concerns could hurt his re-election chances. On many occasions, Americans have watched as Biden shuffles slowly across a stage. Several times he’s fallen while walking, climbing stairs, or riding a bike.
Despite all this, Democrats and the media continue to downplay concerns over Biden’s health. And with the election just a year away, Biden’s aides have to find a way to convince Americans Joe isn’t suffering from physical problems. Now, their plan to prevent Biden from tumbling has become public.
From Fox News:
President Biden’s campaign team is on a mission to prevent him from tripping in public as the 80-year-old continues to struggle with a diagnosis of “significant spinal arthritis.” […]
Now, his team has made a conscious effort to make him wear tennis shoes and limit stair climbs to prevent another embarrassing fall, Axios reported Tuesday…
The goal for Biden’s team is to prevent the president from taking a spill in public during election season, something that could potentially damage his campaign.
Many critics have questioned Biden’s fitness for leading. Now, it has been reported that his campaign is taking special measures to prevent the 80-year-old man from falling during his campaign.
They are forcing him to wear special sneakers, which might help his walking. These shoes don’t look like sneakers (perhaps to convince voters they aren’t sneakers). They will also be planning events that don’t require the man to do things like climbing the stairs. Bike riding might be out of the question until the election.
Donald Trump has been merciless in his criticisms of Biden’s fitness. Other critics have demanded tests to prove Biden’s ability to run. In 2020, Biden avoided most, if not all, of the typical campaign events. He became infamous for appearing online from his basement.
At the time, he blamed the situation of the pandemic for his glaring absence from campaigning. But it is unlikely he can use that excuse in the 2024 campaign. Biden will have to showcase to the voting public that he is healthy and fit enough to lead another presidential administration.
Any missteps or tumbles will be used by Republicans to question his abilities. But one has to question his campaign’s efforts. Instead of being honest about Biden’s limitations, they appear to be trying to simply hide his age and infirmities from the American public.
That might not go over well for many.
- Biden’s campaign is carefully arranging events to avoid more tumbles.
- The Democrat has repeatedly fallen during recent events.
- Many question Biden’s fitness to lead, given his struggles.
