US President Joe Biden is known for his mistakes. A new video creates confusion over the Democrat’s health.
Washington, DC – Joe Biden is the oldest US president in history. A fact that is often used to attack the Democrats politically – and spread the rumor of dementia. A recently surfaced video sparked again. The 78-year-old can be seen returning to the White House after a trip to his home state of Delaware. Observers see evidence in the scene that Biden is confused because of his old age. Others argue that the video sequence was simply misinterpreted. Nonetheless, the president is once again confronted with speculation about his state of health.
The US president has a knack for making mistakes. In his decades of political career, he repeatedly attracted attention with dropouts, mix-ups and stuttering. Long before he reached his stately old age. The US population is familiar with this. “Uncle Joe”, as he is sometimes called in the US press, is, to put it colloquially, sometimes a bit of a bogus. A particularly unpleasant mishap happened to him during the election campaign. He mistook his granddaughter for a short time for his late son Beau. His stumbling on entering Air Force One, when he wanted to jog up the stairs in typical Biden fashion, with a decidedly sporty approach, will also not be forgotten.

Dreamy US President? Here Biden ignores the instructions of his protectors
Now the little scene on Tuesday (local time) in front of the White House. You can see Biden walking down a path to the White House, a briefcase in his left hand. Behind him a member of his Secret Service, in front of him too. The agent points with his arm at a fork in the road – apparently to signal the US president to walk along there. But Biden continues to run straight across the lawn, unimpressed. It’s all about on Twitter under the post. Many laugh at the scene – and blame his age for the confused impression.
Twitter personality Kambree Kawahine Koa comments, “He looks old there.” Republican Josh Barnett tweeted, “Go here sign, where to go … Biden is straight ahead.” And a user just wants to know: “Can we get a younger president next time?” Others even joked that Joe Biden looked like a robot that wasn’t programmed properly.
But others rush to defend Joe Biden. “It looks like the agent told him that this route is closed and that he should take the other route. Do you really think that the secret service would otherwise show the president the way? ”What actually happened will probably remain a secret of the US president and his secret service. For his opponents it is definitely a hit. (aka)
