Tomorrow is President Biden’s 80th birthday, and he’ll be happy to know that the New York Times has given him a gift. Perhaps this is more like an in-kind donation to a potential reelection campaign:
President Biden turns 80 on Sunday, and would be 86 at the end of a second term. The New York Times spoke to 10 experts in aging about what the next six years might look like for a person of that age. They agreed that Biden has a lot going in his favor. https://t.co/gU6CKjvbiB

Wow, the NYT seems to see a different Biden than many others do.
The isn’t even an op-ed. https://t.co/OrAcE2BPHw

Yes indeed, it’s an actual “news” story from a Times health reporter.
“They agreed that Biden has a lot going in his favor.”
Would one of those things be a press almost totally incurious about the repeated signs that Biden is both 1) not up to the mental demands of the presidency & 2) farming out most of the planning to his handlers? 🤔 https://t.co/UcGwLnkXYp

The media carrying water for him is also going in Biden’s favor.

They can’t seem to make up their minds over there at the NY Times:

Things changed quickly!
No red wave so now we gotta start talking about how hale and healthy he is. https://t.co/QIo2uhGk5n

They couldn’t be more predictable.
Biden can’t even do the job now and they want you to believe he can do it for six more years? https://t.co/IABfUB9Zap

To hold major office in D.C. these days, you must be at least 85. https://t.co/Mgoj93ldVA

Haven’t examined him.
He’s in amazing shape tho.

More “experts”? Great:
But while the risk of life-threatening diseases, dementia and death rises faster with each passing decade of a person’s life, experts in geriatrics say that people in their 80s who are active, engaged and have a sense of purpose can remain productive and healthy — and that wisdom and experience are important factors to consider.
The New York Times spoke to 10 experts in aging to paint a picture of what the next six years might look like for a person of the president’s age. These experts have not examined or treated Mr. Biden, though they have looked at publicly available information, including a medical report issued by the White House last year, a day before his 79th birthday.
