Biden Insiders Want Him To Walk ‘Shorter Distances On Camera,’ Wear Shoes That Reduce Falling

via The Sun on Youtube

Some close to President Biden have suggested he wear more comfortable shoes and walk shorter distances on camera to combat concerns about his age.

Democratic strategists and donors are frustrated with the campaign’s handling of the issue, urging more humor about his age and pointing out the double standard compared to Trump.

Family members and allies believe Biden is mentally capable, but acknowledge concerns about his appearance.

According to Politico, “People close to the president have discussed having him walk shorter distances while on camera.

“They’ve also advocated, at times, trading in formal shoes for more comfortable ones — both to make his stride seem less stiff, but also to reduce the risk of falls,” reported the outlet.

Adding, “Many donors are directly urging top campaign aides to go on offense, leaning even harder into Biden’s age as proof of his wisdom in turbulent times. They are pushing for more humor about ‘Grandpa Joe.’”

Alan Kessler, a Democratic donor said, “Neither are going to get any younger on their next birthdays, but yet Biden seems to get, on a continuing basis, knocked for his age while Trump does not.”

“No one brings up the age thing with [Trump],” complained Kessler.

“That double standard is troubling,” he added.

“Those close allies believe that Biden is mentally up for the job, but some acknowledge that the president can at times appear frail, according to two people involved in the conversations but not authorized to speak publicly about internal deliberations,” reported Politico.

Democratic insider and former Obama David Axelrod has also publicly discussed Biden’s age being a problem.

“The one number in the polling that was concerning, and in the CNN poll that followed after The New York Times poll, had to do with age, and that is one thing you can’t reverse no matter how effective Joe Biden is behind the scenes,” said Axelrod.

“In front of the camera, what he’s projecting is causing people concerns, and that is worrisome,” he insisted.

Additionally, Biden’s team has been working to prevent him from tripping during public appearances due to his struggles with significant spinal arthritis.
