Anxiety about the health of Joe suffering from disorder
Broken leg while playing with dog and climbed on Air Force One
In November 2020, Biden broke his leg while playing with his dog Major and was walking in boots.
His physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said in a statement at the time that he would need to wear shoes for several weeks.
Biden’s recovery was progressing well, however, and he soon began to appear in public without a boot.
The president was filmed falling three times as he boarded Air Force One on March 2021.
The wind was to blame for the president’s fall and he was not hurt.
He once again boarded Air Force One last month.
high cholesterol and irregular heartbeat
In December 2019, there were concerns about Biden’s health, especially ahead of the 2020 election.
He released medical records that showed he had an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol, but described him as a ‘healthy, vigorous 77-year-old’.
Some experts questioned whether he was as healthy as he claimed.
tongue slipping and memory loss
A few days before the election, he became confused when introducing his granddaughter Natalie at an event, and called her ‘my son beau’ instead.
Beau Biden died in 2015 after battling a brain tumor.
He mistakenly referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘President’ and incorrectly told US troops that they were going to Ukraine.
Last month, the president was pictured raising his hand to shake someone’s hand during a speech in North Carolina, where he wandered off stage.
Grateful for Biden’s victory against Donald Trump in 2020, several interviewed Democrats, many of whom asked to remain anonymous, said the troubles facing the presidential administration had dealt a major blow to his party.
Among the big-ticket issues are record-high inflation that is by far the highest in more than 40 years, rising gas prices – which reached $5 a gallon on Saturday, the lingering pandemic and the prospect of federal abortion rights in the Supreme Court. As is finished. Roe vs. Wade is gearing up to conclude in the coming weeks.
Also stinging was Biden’s failure to pass his $1.8 trillion Build Back Better agenda and voting rights expansion, which faced opposition from his own party, and the chaotic US military exit from Afghanistan last summer.
While David Axelrod, chief strategist for Barack Obama’s victorious campaigns, argued that Biden has faced unprecedented challenges as a result of the pandemic, he fears the president’s age could be a deciding factor in whether he can draw enough. Support to launch a successful re-election bid.
“The presidency is a monstrous taxing job and the harsh reality is that the president will be close to 90 to 80 at the end of the second term, and that will be a major issue,” Axelrod told the Times.
Biden became the oldest American to be inaugurated as president in 2021 after being sworn in at the age of 78.
The campaign strategist said that while many would be able to tout a victory won by Biden to brighten his image, the president lacks the ability to believe.
‘He looks his age and is not as nimble in front of the camera as he once was, and this has fed a narrative about potential that is not rooted in reality.’
Biden’s repeated mistakes – where he’s stuck on the stairs, talking to no one and the wrongly referenced global leader – aren’t helping his image.
The question remains who will replace Biden in this highly polarizing political climate as Democrats fear Trump may launch his re-election campaign for 2024.
Some interviewed by the Times said they did not expect Vice President Kamala Harris to come.
Harris has faced his own failures in office, mainly through the crisis at the US-Mexico border, while he was appointed as Frontier Tsar.
Instead many Democrats touted US Senators Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Corey Booker, as well as US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Texas governor hopeful Beto O’Rourke.
Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager in 2020 Faiz Shakir said it would be best for the young Democrat to run.
Shakir told the Times that while he believed Biden could beat Trump in the 2024 rematch, the results could be different if Republicans nominate a rising star like Florida to their party. government. Ron DeSantis.
“If it’s DeSantis or someone else, I think it’s going to be a different kind of challenge,” Shakir said.
Former DNC chairman, Howard Dean, echoed the need for a new face and revealed that he cited for Buttigieg, 40, in the 2020 primary.
Dean told the Times, ‘The generation after me is just a pile of garbage.
Former DNC chairman Howard Dean said Democrats were desperate for younger candidates and called that generation a ‘complete garbage dump’.
