Video: Biden Shows Up at Noon — an Hour Late for Event — and Here’s Why People Think He Overslept

Biden’s age — 81 — has been a focus of his second White House bid, with the conversation around it reaching a fever pitch and even some Democrats expressing some worry about the issue. He has what his doctor calls a “stiff” gait as well as “significant spinal arthritis.” And cameras have caught him stumbling at times, prompting speculation among Republicans that he isn’t prepared for the rigors of four more years in office.

The lack of transparency about his physical fitness has raised concerns. And Democrats are worried the White House isn’t doing enough to counter the narrative.

“Basically, the narrative in this race is focused on Trump’s crazy versus Biden’s age,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon said. “His health and age are of serious concerns to voters, and they should be doing everything they can to push back on those concerns.”

“This is one of the things that bothers me,” Bannon continued. “You occasionally see pictures of him biking and he looks great, especially in contrast with Trump sitting in his golf cart with his gut hanging out. But despite that, voters have concerns about Biden, and the White House should be pushing against that with all their might.”

Another Democratic strategist agreed: “If you have a president who is being portrayed as old and frail, why wouldn’t you punch back and show him active?

“This is a narrative that will haunt him every day of his campaign. Don’t just show a hyped-up Biden during the State of the Union. Show how active he is every f‑‑‑ing day of the week,” the strategist added.

Yesterday, Biden was in the spotlight again!

On Tuesday, he had nothing at all on his public schedule. But, as I noted, he looked horrible at his healthcare remarks that he had to deliver on Wednesday and lost badly in a fight with the teleprompter.

Turns out there was a backstory.

Biden was late to the event which was supposed to be at 11 a.m. He kept Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and the health care advocates who attended the even waiting for an hour before he bothered to appear. He didn’t show up until around 12 p.m. And when he showed up finally, people noticed that he had CPAP strap marks still very evident on his face.

He supposedly sleeps with a CPAP machine helping him because he has sleep apnea.

But if he’s showing up at that time with the straps still evident on his face, then one has to concluded it’s very likely he overslept. Fox’s Jesse Watters made this point.

“If he has a creasy face at noon, he just got out of bed,” Watters surmised. He wasn’t up late or doing anything the day before, yet he’s still so late this morning?

Seriously, we’ve got someone sitting in the Oval Office who can’t even make it to an event until noon? Is he even getting any work done with a schedule like that? It seems like Trump’s “Sleepy Joe” nickname might be hitting the nail on the head once again.

And get this, the only other thing on his schedule was supposed to be the Daily Briefing at 10 a.m. Did he just decide to skip that altogether? I mean, does he even show up for those? If not, who’s pulling the strings behind the scenes? And how on earth could anyone justify voting for this kind of chaos? It’s like they think they can just brush it under the rug and we won’t notice. But come on, the media needs to step up and start asking the tough questions. We deserve some straight answers here.
