Biden Aides Accidentally Reveal Biden’s Dire ‘Secret’ Condition

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

According to an Axios article, White House officials have expressed a variety of grave concerns about President Biden’s cognitive abilities as well as his ability to continue serving for another four years.

White House aides have “seen flashes of an absent-minded Biden, but typically brush them off as ordinary brain farts because they usually see him engaged,” according to Axios, who spoke with eight current and former Biden Administration aides.

The repercussions from Thursday night’s debate is having an impact on some aides, who are asking whether the president can continue to operate. Others are more optimistic that things will improve, though Biden’s staff is mostly in agreement that the president’s repeated freeze-ups, slurred speech, and wide-eyed facial expressions contributed to a bad night for the campaign.

“Some campaign aides projected calm Friday and framed the debate as just a bad night that they’d recover from. Other Biden aides, donors and senior Democrats were deeply shaken, as Trump and other crowing Republicans questioned his fitness for office,” Axios reported.

“Beyond the politics of whether Biden can beat Trump again, the aides expressed new worries about whether the president can carry out his duties through another four-year term.”

While the report stated that Biden’s rally in North Carolina on Friday, which still featured freeze-ups and blank stares, had reassured some staff members, it went on to make a startling disclosure concerning Biden’s cognitive impairment.

“The time of day is important as to which of the two Bidens will appear,” Axios reported after speaking with White House staff. “From 10am to 4pm, Biden is dependably engaged — and many of his public events in front of cameras are held within those hours.”

“Outside of that time range or while traveling abroad, Biden is more likely to have verbal miscues and become fatigued,” aides told the outlet.

Thursday’s 90-minute debate began at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Increased disorientation and cognitive deterioration in the evenings and nights is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s and dementia known as “sundowning.”

“Sundowning is increased confusion that people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia may experience from dusk through night,” reads a description from the Alzheimer’s Association website. “Also called ‘sundowner’s syndrome,’ it is not a disease but a set of symptoms or dementia-related behaviors that may include difficulty sleeping, anxiety, agitation, hallucinations, pacing and disorientation. Although the exact cause is unknown, sundowning may occur due to disease progression and changes in the brain.”

Campaign advisers were convinced that President Biden was prepared for Thursday’s debate and would do well. “Some of the close-knit Biden aides who prepped him for the debate told confidantes they were optimistic beforehand, and that he’d done well in their practice sessions,” Axios Newspapers stated.

While the campaign agrees that the debate was a disaster, there are differing viewpoints on the magnitude of the damage. Holding the debate early was intended to give Biden a boost in the polls, not a setback, though some members of the campaign remain optimistic that they can turn the trend.
