Oldest American President in Office Joe Biden Turns 80 as He Weighs Reelection Campaign

President Joe Biden turned 80 years old Sunday, the first American president to reach that age while in office.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was born in Pennsylvania on November 20, 1942.

Biden has been the oldest American president in office since he was inaugurated in 2021 — at the age of 78.

The Biden family is expected to mark the occasion with brunch at the White House hosted by first lady Jill Biden, according to the White House. Many Biden family members are in Washington, DC for the president’s oldest granddaughter Naomi Biden’s wedding, which was held at the White House on Saturday.

Biden continues to dismiss questions about his health, repeatedly reassuring people that he feels physically and mentally sound.

“I no more think of myself as being as old as I am than fly,” he said in an interview with 60 Minutes in September, telling critics of his age to “watch me.”

“I mean, it’s just not I haven’t — observed anything in terms of —there’s not things I don’t do now that I did before, whether it’s physical, or mental, or anything else,” he added.

But Americans have reason to be concerned after witnessing him fall three times while boarding Air Force One in March, falling off of his bike in June, and repeatedly appearing lost or confused on stage, or unable to properly read his speeches on his teleprompter.

Two thirds of Americans in midterm exit polls said they did not want Biden to run for reelection.

Despite criticism, Biden continues defying Americans who do not want him to run again in 2024.

The president is expected to make his final decision on whether or not he will run for reelection during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays while spending time with family.

“My guess is it would be early next year we make that judgment,” he said at a press conference after the midterms.

If Biden runs and wins again, he would be 82 years old on Inauguration Day and 86 by the end of his second term.

Previously the oldest American president in office was Ronald Reagan, who was 77 when his second term in office ended.

Democrat Dilemma – What To Do About Joe



The Democrat Dilemma — What to Do about Joe

By: John Green

The red wave is building and the political landscape next January is going to be a bit different after the 118th Congress is seated. The Republicans will be leading at least one chamber of Congress, and it’s increasingly looking like they may control both chambers.

While the Republicans work on compiling a list of investigations, the Dems will be licking their wounds and planning for a 2024 comeback, with President “39% approval” leading their party. That’s the problem the Democratic Party faces. They selected a senile, corrupt old man to lead their party, and he led them into an electoral trap — as anyone who has observed Biden could have predicted.

It was all fun and games for the leftists in the beginning. The man would do or say anything they wanted — as long as they let him play king in the Oval Office. But as his approval tanks, his usefulness is waning. Now a remarkable 72% of Americans don’t want him to run again. And that’s the trap. The Dems can’t win with him, and it won’t be easy to get rid of him. What do they do with a useful idiot, who isn’t useful anymore — but still has the power of the presidency?

Once the Dems finish their 2023 insurrection — complaining about stolen elections and all — they’re going to have to make some hard decisions about what to do with their vacationer in chief. Let’s game out a few of those scenarios to see what they face.

They could “Nixon” old Joe. This would involve tasking a few of their dignified statesmen, like Little Sandy and the Squad, to take care of the problem. Just as was done with Richard Nixon, the delegation would visit the White House, and tell the man that has been trying to become President for over three decades that, “You’re like too old to be President and stuff. You should quit.”

Is there anything in Joe Biden’s history to indicate that he would be receptive to making a personal sacrifice for anyone else? If so, I’m not aware of it. After Dr. Jill whispers in his ear, he’ll likely call them a bunch of tramps, sniff their hair, throw them out of his office, and then reward himself with some Baskin Robbins. No, the “Nixon” gambit leaves the Dems back where they started, but with the most powerful man in the world ticked off at them too.

The Dems could use the “J. Edgar Hoover” approach. Just blackmail Joe into resigning — to spend more time with his family, and keep Hunter out of jail. Garland is still sitting on that laptop from hell, after all. Of course Joe could respond by pardoning his son, firing his attorney general, and accepting his collapsing public support as the cost of being a devoted and loving father.

Kamala and Joe’s cabinet could use the 25th Amendment to remove Joe from office for being unfit to perform the duties of office — which has been obvious for some time. I’m sure Kamala already has her PowerPoint slides in order and has been practicing her presentation for months.

But for anything beyond a temporary removal, Congress must approve by 2/3s of both chambers. Is there any chance that a few Republicans might oppose removal just to see the Dems squirm for a couple of years? They could even have a bit of fun and accuse the Dems of being insurrectionists — for violating the will of the 81 million (LOL) who voted for Joe Biden. Nope, this play is too risky. It depends on Republican cooperation with a Democrat plan to crush Republicans. The Republicans might be the stupid party, but there are limits.

The Democrats could impeach Joe. This approach might be more palatable to the Republicans than a 25th Amendment removal. It would provide a public airing of Biden administration corruption. Oops, wait a minute. There’s a problem with that. How can the Dems argue that Biden should be removed for corruption, which they enabled and participated in, and then argue that they’re fit to run the country in 2024? No, they better stay away from that approach too.

Unfortunately, there’s a recurring problem with all of these gambits. With any removal of Biden, they’re stuck with a President Harris — whose approval (37%) is worse than Joe’s. She’s an even less useful idiot than Joe is. The woman slept her way to the top of California politics and then made the jump to VP via her intersectionality score. There is nothing in her background to indicate that she could keep the Democrat airplane from drilling a big flaming hole in the ground.

If they deal with their “Biden problem,” they’ll just create a “Harris problem.” They could let her have play time in the Oval Office for a couple of years and then primary her — with someone like Governor Gavin “Hair gel” Newsom. That would be the Democrat party trying to unseat the “first black female president,” with a white guy from a failed state. There’s not enough popcorn in the world for that spectacle.

Maybe the Democrats could get creative – I’ve actually seen this suggestion made on the news. Instead of asking Joe to resign, they could pay a visit to Kamala instead. Assuming she doesn’t throw them out, it would clear her office for Joe to nominate his old pal Barack to be the VP. Then the Dems can force Joe out, Obama can serve out the last two years of his term, and the field is cleared for whatever batch of radical lunatics the Dems want to run in 2024.

There’s just one flaw with the logic. Since the voters wouldn’t have had their say in the matter, Obama would have to be confirmed by a majority of both chambers of Congress. Is there any chance the Republicans might just say no?

But what would happen if for any reason Biden ceases to be president without a sitting VP? Then we get President McCarthy. Now is there any chance the Republicans might say no to an Obama nomination?

Sorry, I’m just not seeing any chess moves to remove the king without losing the game. The Dems, and America, are stuck with Joe Biden for another couple of years. And he doesn’t need the help of Congress to continue his “Sherman’s march” through America. Just look at what he’s already done with his pen, all by himself. The Dems are going to have a lot to answer for, and there’s no avoiding it.

Joe Biden Struggles with 2024 Question During Live Broadcast

Joe Biden Struggles with 2024 Question During Live Broadcast

I’m not sure what’s more remarkable; the transparency of Joe Biden’s cognitive decline, or MSNBC broadcasting it.  Then again, this was live at around 5:30pm ET, so there wasn’t an opportunity to edit out the disturbing part.  Sundowning?

During a live MSNBC interview broadcast today, Joe Biden was asked about his decision to run for reelection in 2024.  When a short follow-up question is asked, things got weird and uncomfortable.  WATCH:

BIDEN: “It’s my intention to run again.”

MSNBC: “Dr. Biden is for it?”

BIDEN: crickets

MSNBC: (Uncomfortable) “Mr. President?”

BIDEN: (Confused) “Dr. Biden thinks that uh, my wife thinks that uh, that I uh, that, that we’re, that we’re doing something very important.”

Jill Biden: ‘I Know that Hunter Is Innocent’

Jill Biden: ‘I Know that Hunter Is Innocent’

First lady Jill Biden claimed in an interview that her son, Hunter Biden, is innocent of any crime.

“Everybody and their brother has investigated Hunter,” she said in an interview with NBC News. “They keep at it, and at it, and at it. I know that Hunter is innocent.”

Hunter is under federal investigation for tax crimes and lying on a federal form to purchase a gun. He will also face investigations of his foreign business deals if Republicans win majorities in Congress.

But Jill Biden dismissed all of it.

“I love my son, and I will keep looking forward,” she said.

The Biden family continues to defend Hunter, insisting he did nothing wrong.

“I have great confidence in my son,” President Joe Biden said in a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. “I love him and he’s on the straight and narrow, and he has been for a couple years now. And I’m just so proud of him.”

Information about Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business deals continues to leak into the press.

This week, it was reported that Hunter Biden made a $40 million real estate deal in 2012 with Russian billionaire and wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Yelena Baturina, while President Joe Biden was vice president.

Hunter Biden is the subject of a brand new narrative film, My Son Hunter, marking Breitbart’s expansion into film distribution. The film was directed by Robert Davi (GooniesLicense to KillDie Hard) and stars Laurence Fox (VictoriaInspector LewisThe Professor and The Madman) as Hunter Biden; Gina Carano (The MandalorianDeadpoolHeist) as a Secret Service agent; and John James (Dynasty) as Joe Biden. It was produced by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney (Gosnell movie, FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers) from the Unreported Story Society. The film is available RIGHT NOW for Streaming and Downloading at MySonHunter.com.

Media Silent On Jill Biden’s Hurricane Heels After Melting Down Over Melania Trump’s

Media Silent On Jill Biden’s Hurricane Heels After Melting Down Over Melania Trump’s

First Lady Jill Biden wore heeled shoes Wednesday as she joined the president to tour the disaster damage in Florida after Hurricane Ian ripped across the peninsula as a Category 4 storm.

The shoes themselves aren’t a big deal. The first lady can wear whatever she wants, even if her decisions seem impractical for touring an area ravaged by a recent hurricane. But at the end of the day, who cares? No one in the press corps seemed to, as the president and first lady left the White House this morning. Five years ago, however, the first lady’s shoes were given wall-to-wall coverage as partisan fashionistas hyperventilated over Melania Trump making a similar wardrobe choice to tour Texas after Hurricane Harvey.

Below is a sampling of the headlines admonishing the former first lady over a made-up controversy:

The New York Times: “Melania Trump, Off to Texas, Finds Herself on Thin Heels.”

Vogue: “Melania Trump’s Hurricane Stilettos, and the White House’s Continual Failure to Understand Optics.”

BuzzFeed: “Melania Trump Wore Stilettos On The Way To Texas And People Lost Their Minds.”

Harper’s Bazaar: “Melania Trump Gets Backlash for Wearing Heels to Help Hurricane Victims.”

Business Insider: “The designer behind the ‘storm stilettos’ Melania Trump wore to Texas after Hurricane Harvey has spoken out.”

Hollywood Reporter: “Melania Trump Wears Her Stilettos to Tour Houston Flood Zone, No Joke.”

Vanity Fair: “Who Wears Stilettos to a Hurricane? Melania Trump.”

But to answer Vanity Fair, First Lady Jill Biden does too.

According to Inside Edition, Melania Trump didn’t even wear the stilettos in Texas. The first lady changed into a pair of sneakers on the plane.

While the shoes themselves don’t matter, the double standard absolutely does. The conduct of Trump’s critics not only reveals open animosity for the former first lady, but also reveals just as much how the corporate press approached the Republican administration at large. From disparate hysteria over DOJ resignations to the difference in coverage between the Russia hoax and the Hunter Biden laptop, there is no shortage of examples.

Timberland Boots Are Revolutionary on Kamala Harris, They’re ‘Work Boots’ on Melania Trump

This week’s episode featuring stilettos is far from the first time First Lady Melania has been the subject of the media’s vicious double fashion standards.

In September 2020, then-Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris wore Timberland Boots to tour the fire devastation sweeping her state while she was still a California senator.

The press lauded the footwear as a revolutionary wardrobe pick for a prominent politician.

According to Yahoo! Finance, “Kamala Harris may have made Timberland boots cool again.” Yahoo’s Editor-at-Large Brian Sozzi called the shoe choice a “boss like move.”

Other outlets followed suit to celebrate the California senator’s trendy new look.

“Kamala Harris Wears Her Timberlands, Gets Sh*t Done,” headlined the fashion and beauty magazine Marie Claire.

“Timbs and Converse? Kamala Harris sports Timberland boots after wearing Chuck Taylor All-Stars,” fawned USA Today.

“Kamala Harris’ Timberlands-Pearls Combo Has Our Vote,” headlined another article in Refinery29 picked up by Yahoo! Life.

Timberland boots were seen as tasteless, however, whenever Melania Trump wore them.

“Melania Trump gets mocked for wearing Timberland boots while visiting troops,” headlined Yahoo! Life in 2018.

“Work boots and white jeans? Melania Trump’s outfits still missing the mark for some,” read another headline in USA Today in 2017, removing any description of Timberlands as “work boots” when covering Harris’s shoe pick three years later.

“Melania Trump’s Puerto Rico Outfit and Heels Spark Backlash,” Teen Vogue reported.

Media Turn Scrooge On Melania’s Christmas Outfit

In 2019, First Lady Melania Trump’s Christmas outfit was ridiculed after the prior year’s White House holiday display was given scorched-earth treatment by The Washington Post.

In the piece, titled, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” Post fashion critic Robin Givhan complained the first lady looked “cold” and “dismissive” in white despite the color being the dominant hue of the display’s theme that year, which was “The Spirit of America.” The white coat is also a signature look in Melania Trump’s wardrobe.

“More than a silly fashion folly, the coat is a distraction,” Givhan wrote. “It’s a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme. In a video that is intended to celebrate the warmth and welcoming spirit of the holiday season, that simple flourish exudes cold, dismissive aloofness.”

Givhan, of course, is an activist fashion critic who always seemed in awe of former First Lady Michelle Obama.

In 2016, Givhan penned a piece examining Obama’s White House fashion legacy titled, “Michelle Obama didn’t like to discuss her clothes, but they spoke volumes.” The next year, Givhan joined the chorus criticizing Melania Trump’s stilettos in Texas.

“There was no pretense about Melania Trump’s heels,” Givhan headlined her reporting in the Post. “But sometimes a little pretense helps.”

“It was also an image that suggested that Trump is the kind of woman who refuses to pretend that her feet will, at any point, ever be immersed in cold, muddy, bacteria-infested Texas water,” Givhan wrote of Melania’s stiletto choice. “She is the kind of woman who may listen empathetically to your pain, but she knows that you know that she is not going to experience it.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, Givhan had written nothing on Jill Biden’s hurricane heels.

Joe Biden Pays His Respects to Queen in Westminster Visit

Joe Biden Pays His Respects to Queen in Westminster Visit

U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday paid his personal respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II when he stood beside her coffin, made the sign of the cross and put his hand to his heart during a visit to Westminster Hall in London.

He was accompanied by first lady Jill Biden.

AP reports he stood quietly in contemplation near the casket after his quiet tribute. The Bidens were joined by U.S. Ambassador Jane Hartley.

Biden was also expected to sign the official condolence book and attend a reception Sunday at Buckingham Palace hosted by King Charles III before attending the state funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday.

The visiting president is one of hundreds of world leaders in the capital to pay their respects to the Queen, who died Sept. 8 at 96 after 70 years on the throne.

Other leaders who have already made the journey to view the coffin include New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Australia Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and the President of Israel, Isaac Herzog.

You can watch continuous live coverage of visitors paying their respects to Queen Elizabeth II below:

Hundreds of thousands of other mourners have waited for hours in a queue to walk past the queen’s casket.

London’s transport authority says it is preparing for around one million people to visit central London Monday for Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral.

Transport for London chief Andy Byford said Sunday the capital has seen “huge numbers of additional passengers” since the Queen died on Sept. 8. But he said demand will “reach a climax” on Monday, AP reports.

Across the country some 250 extra train services will run, including some overnight trains.

Peter Hendy, chairman of Network Rail, said Monday will see the “biggest public transport operation since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Jill Biden Physically Pulls Away ‘Stuck’ Joe From Reporters

What the hell is this?

Steve Watson

As a confused looking Joe Biden spoke with reporters at the airport Sunday, Jill Biden, looking more like his carer than his wife, physically backed him away.

The guy has has COVID more times than Tom Brady has won the Super Bowl, so what is she doing?

And what’s with the hand? It appears to be stuck in a ‘shake my hand’ position.

It’s quite clear there’s something wrong with Joe:

Things can only get expodentially worse:

Joe Biden Breaks out of Coronavirus Quarantine for Trip to Delaware

Joe Biden Breaks out of Coronavirus Quarantine for Trip to Delaware

President Joe Biden broke out of his coronavirus isolation at the White House on Sunday for another trip to Delaware.

The president has spent over two weeks in and out of coronavirus isolation after he first tested positive on July 21, making it one of the longest periods that Biden has remained at the White House without traveling home to Delaware.

After his first six days of coronavirus isolation, while fighting symptoms of the virus, the president again tested positive on Saturday, July 30.

His physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor blamed “rebound” coronavirus, a symptom of his use of the antiviral drug Paxlovid to fight the virus.

His positive test put him back in isolation, canceling a planned trip home. His cough returned on August 1.

Biden again tested positive for the virus by Friday, August, but it was clear he was not going to let it stop him from returning home to Delaware.

First Lady Jill Biden has remained in Delaware for two weeks, leaving the president alone with company provided by his new dog Commander.

By Sunday, Biden tested negative for the virus and finally broke free from quarantine for a trip to his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach.

“I’m feeling good,” he told reporters as he left the White House.

This is the president’s 48th trip to the state of Delaware since taking office.
