Those two contrasting facts should scare Americans of every persuasion. But they don’t. The Left is so infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome and their lust to reclaim one branch of government that they are willing to elect a man who literally must be led by the hand when in public.
I can already hear the Biden apologists howling at such a statement. Behavioral observations aside, any insurance company actuary with knowledge of long-term care claims will tell you that the odds of needing nursing home care at age 65 are relatively high and grow exponentially as one ages. Those odds are far greater with pre-existing conditions. Joe Biden will be 78 at inauguration time if he were elected to the presidency. According to the Social Security Administration, he has a life expectancy of just beyond nine years from there. He would be older at the start of his term than Reagan was at the end of his. Biden’s age alone puts him at high risk of needing advanced care not to mention the obvious signs of decline he is demonstrating. On a side note, one need look no further to prove the bias of the press regarding their claims of Reagan’s senility versus Biden’s. Just ask anyone over 50.
A recent video shows Biden quickly led away by the hand of a staffer. When I first saw the video, I was concentrating on what he was saying and disturbed that he was being shielded from unscripted questions in a public setting. Days later, it hit me like an Antifa-thrown frozen water bottle that the key to the video was not what he was saying or that his staff was actively working at removing him from a potentially embarrassing situation. The real takeaway was that he was literally being led by the hand. The staffer doesn’t grab him during the questioning and pull him away. She is leading him by the hand/arm from the moment he exits the building much like one would do for an elderly grandparent.
