In an essay for the New York Times published last Saturday, Maureen Dowd criticized President Biden’s aides for working too hard to control him, particularly with the media.
Dowd said that several times in recent memory, Biden couldn’t accept questions or stopped answering them altogether. During a recent address, he refused to answer questions, claiming he would get into trouble if he did. He’s scared his controllers will yank his collar if he continues babbling.
Dowd explained that he has always been full of tall tales and incoherent statements in the decades she has written about Biden. Dowd won’t chalk off his current behavior to old age. There’s no doubt that he’s slowed down, but she believes his team has made matters worse by exerting excessive effort to rein him in.
Dowd claimed that the president’s administration was smothering him because of the age controversy, and they are helping “The Trumpsters” achieve their goals.
Dowd stated that the president should project an image of authority. To look as if he was in command.
Video reports show that after sounding irritable and saying he wanted to go to bed, the White House cut off his press conference in the middle of his answer to a question during his early September appearance in Vietnam. Music blared as he left the stage.
Reports show that at a recent Medal of Honor ceremony celebrating a Vietnam War veteran, President Biden received criticism for being rude as he wandered out of the East Room of the White House.
After awarding the Medal of Honor to retired Army Capt. Larry Taylor, Biden departed the event before Chaplain Brig. Gen. William Green Jr. could deliver the final benediction.
Joe Biden has been questioned why he did not run for president after his vice presidency. Biden has said that losing his oldest son, Beau was a major factor in his decision not to run for president in 2016.
Reports show that Biden has declared his intention to run for reelection. People close to the president are concerned that the legal troubles of his remaining son, Hunter, could divert his attention when he needs to be fully focused on what is expected to be a razor-thin election.
