What The Joe?

BALANCING ACT: Biden Campaign Working Overtime to Make Sure Joe Doesn't Trip; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.26.23

According to an Axios report, Team Biden is worried that Joe is likely to fall at some point before the 2024 election, ending his White House bid. This very real concern has resulted in a critical project for Biden’s staff.

Don’t let Joe fall.

Axios pulls back the curtain on Team Biden’s efforts.

Driving the news: As voters express deep concerns about the 80-year-old president’s ageand fitness for office, Biden’s team is taking extra steps to prevent him from stumbling in public — as he did in June, when he tripped over a sandbag at the Air Force Academy.

With a physical therapist, Biden has been doing exercises to improve his balance as far back as November 2021.Since his stumble in June, he has been wearing tennis shoes more often to avoid slipping — and using the short stairs on Air Force One, entering the plane on a lower deck than before.

Biden’s balance difficulties are likely the result of what his physician has diagnosed as “a combination of significant spinal arthritis” and “mild post-fracture foot arthritis.”

Biden’s doctor has recommended exercises for balance, which he called “proprioceptive maintenance maneuvers.”

What the maneuvers entail is unclear.

“I have never heard the term ‘proprioceptive maintenance maneuvers.’ It is not a clinical term in standard use,” said Professor James Gordon, associate dean and chair of the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California.

If Joe is one slip-and-fall away from being out of the 2024 race, should he even be in it at all?
