Biden handlers reportedly change walking protocol to hide his feeble shuffle

President Biden’s handlers are doing their level best to hide his feeble shuffling when he walks by, surrounding him when he sets off for Marine One; standing between him and the cameras.

RNC Research stingingly commented on X, “Biden has been shamed into having his handlers surround him while he walks so he doesn’t appear to be as much of shuffling, wandering fool. It’s not working.”

The president’s walking routine to Marine One across the South Lawn has notably changed according to Axios. He is usually accompanied by an entourage of aides who look as though they are strategically blocking the press from seeing him haltingly walking. It appears to be a PR attempt to control Biden’s elderly, failing image.

“With aides walking between Biden and journalists’ camera position outside the White House, the visual effect is to draw less attention to the 81-year-old’s halting and stiff gait,” Axios wrote.

“Some Biden advisers have told Axios they’re concerned that videos of Biden walking and shuffling alone — especially across the grass — have highlighted his age,” the media outlet added.

“Weeks ago the president told aides that he’d prefer a less formal approach, a White House official told Axios. He suggested that they walk with him. White House staffers and reporters alike noticed the sudden change in Biden’s walk routine beginning in mid-April, after more than three years in which he’d typically walked solo,” Axios reported.

Biden will frequently be seen with deputy chiefs of staff Bruce Reed and Annie Tomasini and close adviser Mike Donilon when walking to Marine One. Advisers to the president believe this has improved his image but Americans can pretty much see right through the manipulation.

“Starting April 16, Biden was joined by staff or lawmakers nine out of 10 times he walked to and from Marine One,” Axios noted.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates brushed off the change in Biden’s walking routine.

“He’s fully visible except for a few seconds,” Bates commented. “Impeach.”

The attempt to change Biden’s public image concerning his age has kicked into high gear over the last few months as the presidential election nears.

Biden is now wearing special shoes and using shorter stairs on Marine One to give the illusion that he’s not as feeble and frail as he is.

“The White House also has taken steps to prevent the president from tripping, as he did last summer on a stage at the Air Force Academy. Biden increasingly has worn shoes with extra support, including a pair of black Hoka sneakers,” Axios pointed out.

“His doctor has disclosed that the president suffers from ‘spinal arthritis’ and ‘mild sensory peripheral neuropathy of the feet’ which has contributed to his stiff gait while walking. The doctor declared Biden ‘fit for duty’ and released far more information about his health than Donald Trump’s team has revealed about the 77-year-old ex-president,” the outlet stated.

“Besides the different footwear, he now enters Air Force One on a lower level, taking shorter stairs than the ones used on his early trips to climb to the plane’s cabin. Biden also continues to do physical therapy and stretching exercises most days,” Axios concluded.
