Biden Changes Walking Path To Draw Less Attention

Daily Report April 27,2024

President Joe Biden has recently changed his White House departure and return routine. Instead of walking across the South Lawn to and from Marine One alone, he is now surrounded by aides. The recent change is an attempt to draw attention away from his age, according to the Daily Caller.

The change was made earlier this month, and Biden has been seen walking with advisers nine in 10 times since April 16.

The outlet reports that Biden had told aides he would prefer a less formal walking style in photographs after his doctor revealed he had spinal arthritis. The doctor also revealed he had mild sensory peripheral neuropathy of the feet that made his gait stiffer.

The change comes a month after Biden’s team suggested he wear maximum stability shoes to stop him from falling over.

The president’s team has constantly stage-managed his appearances to avoid the president tripping over, including changing the stairs he uses to board Air Force One.

However, Biden’s age and mental capacity have continued to become a major concern about his candidacy in this year’s presidential election.

A special counsel, Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s handling of classified documents, argued that a potential jury might see Biden as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.

As a result of this, his verbal gaffes in speeches have sparked various reactions. Although the White House has defended the president and insisted he is mentally and physically healthy.

In March, during his State of the Union speech, Biden made the blunder of confusing the people of Iran with those of Ukraine.

“Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people,” he said.

The president’s most recent gaffe was at the 2024 North America’s Building Trades Unions conference in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

While giving a speech on his re-election efforts, the president read a direction off the teleprompter.

“Imagine what we could do next, four more years. Pause,” Biden said.
