A not unusual conference at the White House once again raises questions about the mental health of President Joe Biden, when he called to the podium Representative Jackie Walorski, who died in a traffic accident in early August.
The new mistake, joins the collective uncertainty based on the state of mental health of the U.S. president, which even the former president, Donald Trump, qualifies as «crazy».
During the presidential election in 2020, Joe Biden’s general health did not play a major role. However, today, among many other personalities, the Republican senator from Kansas, Roger Marshall, has expressed «I think we are all concerned about President Biden’s mental health,» adding that a «deterioration» in his health over the course of the last year is noticeable.
Joe Biden longest-serving U.S. President
Currently 79 years old, Biden is the oldest citizen in U.S. history to be elected president, although his most recent health examination, in November 2021, qualified him as «fit for office and fully executing all of his responsibilities without exemptions or accommodations.»
In this context, the «shows» given by the president, do not make this diagnosis entirely clear: greetings to ghosts, confusions and falls, have been part of his personal brand, during his year and a half in the presidency.
Polls show concern
Biden’s stumble comes just two months before the legislative elections to be held on November 8, which will redefine the control of the Republican and Democratic parties in Congress, as well as being considered a referendum on Joe Biden’s current presidency.
In this regard, The New York Times detailed the position of more than a dozen senior officials: «Biden looks older than he did a few years ago, a political liability that cannot be solved by traditional White House stratagems, such as staff restructurings or new communications plans.
His energy level, while impressive for a man of his age, is not what it used to be, and some aides quietly watch him. He often shuffles his feet when he walks, and aides fear he will trip over 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 mistake.
