Oh boy.

Bide is headed back to the basement and making it his campaign headquarters.

“My family’s values, my eternal optimism and my unwavering belief in the American middle class as our nation’s backbone comes from my home — from Delaware,” Biden said in a statement. “That’s why there is no better place for our reelection campaign to have its headquarters.”

This is taking the term “front porch strategy” to a whole new level.

Then this happened and the look on the Israeli President said it all.

A day later, Politico released a report detailing how the White House is making accommodations to make Biden look less fragile.

Members of the press who travel with the President have noticed that Biden is wearing sneakers without socks to help him navigate walking across tarmacs. Reporters have also noticed that the President is using shorter retractable stairs to aid him instead of the traditional method former presidents use.

Bloomberg’s Justin Sink asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if Biden was having “mobility problems.”

“I don’t have any decision process to walk through,” Jean-Pierre replied. “I’m sure there’s a protocol that’s used for the — for Air Force One. I just don’t have one.”

From Politico:

While many Biden advisers POLITICO contacted would not comment publicly on the change, two privately acknowledged an intentional shift to steer the 80-year-old president to the lower stairs more often to make his travel easier and limit the possibility for missteps. Why climb 26 sometimes wobbly steps at Joint Base Andrews, raised off the back of a pick-up truck that drives up beside Air Force One, when you have the option of stepping up or down just 14? Especially when few outside the press corps are likely to even notice.
