White House officials reveal how scheduling events with Biden is difficult because of his age

Axios has a report out this morning on concerns about Biden’s age, even from within the White House.

The most interesting tidbit from the report is what the CEO of Axios reveals below:

In the report they expound on this a little:

Behind the scenes: Biden’s close advisers say he’s mentally sharp. But even some of them concede his age has diminished his energy, significantly limiting his schedule.

Many White House officials say they’re amazed at Biden’s stamina — often adding the caveat: “for his age.”

Some White House officials say it’s difficult to schedule public or private events with the president in the morning, in the evening, or on weekends: The vast majority of Biden’s public events happen on weekdays, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Jen Psaki, who was Biden’s first White House press secretary, acknowledged this dynamic: She noted that the president’s remarks on the Silicon Valley Bank crisis must have been a high priority since he delivered them at 9:15 a.m.

“President Biden does nothing at 9 a.m.,” she said last month on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He is a night owl.”

Mentally sharp? Yeah I don’t think anyone believes that.

But as we all know, mental acuity is only one aspect of being president. It sounds like he’s already having trouble dealing with the demands of the job because of his age and he’s only getting older.

Axios write: “Can President Biden really win the White House again at nearly 82 — and run it competently into age 86? It’s a line of questioning the White House hates, and tries to brush off. But there are so many unknowns to rolling into your mid-80s with more power than anyone on Earth.”

Biden has already announced he’s running and while media organizations like Axios are talking about this now, you can be sure they won’t be talking about it for much longer because they are going to be too busy trying to help him win.

It’s like when they made a big deal about how uncomfortable he makes young girls with his breathing and touching and sniffing. They only did that early to get it out of the way that’s how I see this going. If they talk about it at all it will be now. It won’t be next year when it really matters.
