NY Times: Say, Biden Is Kept Pretty Cocooned, Eh?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Should we be surprised that the NY Times is exposing just how much Biden is protected from those pesky reporters and citizens? Of course, it was a piece published on Saturday

Inside Biden’s Protective White House

Where's Joe BidenAides have President Joe Biden take the shorter stairs to board Air Force One. When it comes to news conferences, they yell loudly — and quickly — to end the questions, sometimes stealing a classic awards show tactic and playing loud music to signal the conclusion of the event. And forget about regular interviews with major news publications, including a traditional presidential sit-down on Super Bowl Sunday.

Over the years, some of Biden’s key aides have gone from letting “Joe be Joe” to wrapping a presidential cocoon around him that is intended to shield him from verbal slips and physical stumbles.

All presidents are shielded by the strictures of the office, yet for Biden, who at 81 is the oldest person in history to hold the job, the decision is not only situational but strategic, according to several people who are familiar with the dynamic. The cloistered nature of his White House reflects a concern among some of his top aides that Biden, who has always been prone to gaffes, risks making a mistake.

Most of the rest of this piece is not complementary nor an attempt to defend Biden, though, if it was a Republican president who was being cocooned this much they’d be ripping that person to shreds, demanding that they answer questions, that they do press conferences, and, if not capable, retire.

Thing is, it’s really not about Biden’s age even though they’re trying to run polls to that effect, which is a precursor to discussing ageism

Overwhelming majority of Americans think Biden is too old for another term: POLL

An overwhelming majority of Americans think President Joe Biden is too old to serve another term, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.

According to the poll, conducted using Ipsos’ Knowledge Panel, 86% of Americans think Biden, 81, is too old to serve another term as president. That figure includes 59% of Americans who think both he and former President Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, are too old and 27% who think only Biden is too old.

I know many who are older than Biden, and, while they might have some of the infirmities you get with age, they are mentally sound. They don’t say wacky stuff, do weird stuff, and just look lost all the time. They do not have to disappear from the public the vast majority of weekends. What will the Credentialed Media do if Biden essentially disappears from public events during the campaign? The danger is allowing him to appear in public and get the Bidencrazy on a constant basis.
