Biden’s Handlers Tighten Control As Cognitive Health Concerns Rise

A recent report has exposed the extent to which President Joe Biden’s handlers manage his daily schedule and interactions, raising further questions about his cognitive health. According to the Wall Street Journal, senior White House advisers have meticulously stage-managed Biden’s activities for over a year to minimize signs of age-related decline in the oldest president in U.S. history.

The report highlights that Biden’s itinerary has been significantly restricted, with limited press conferences and controlled public appearances. This meticulous management extends to campaign events, where even top donors are required to submit their questions in advance. Despite these efforts, concerns persist as Biden has appeared at a loss during impromptu interactions, requiring aides to assist him with answers.

A particularly troubling incident occurred during a 2022 visit to Germany. German officials, aware of Biden’s tendency to tire in the evenings, scheduled an early evening meeting with Chancellor Olaf Scholz. However, Biden did not attend, sending Secretary of State Antony Blinken in his place, who explained that the president had to retire for the night.

This incident is not isolated. In 2023, Biden skipped a NATO Summit dinner, citing preparation for a speech the next day. However, his schedule showed only leisure activities leading up to the event. Such instances have fueled criticisms about the president’s fitness for office and the transparency of his administration.

Conservative critics have long sounded the alarm about Biden’s cognitive health, but mainstream media outlets are now beginning to echo these concerns. Biden’s handlers’ tight control, coupled with his frequent absences from key events, paints a worrying picture of the president’s capacity to fulfill his duties.
