Joe Biden stays fit, strong, and healthy at age 78 due in no small part to an active lifestyle which includes vigorous bicycle riding. His posture, walking or standing at a podium, is erect with no indication of stoop in the spine anywhere, including the cervical region. He does not appear to be over, or under, the recommended weight for his height and body type.
Over half of the American public is clinically obese, due mostly to very poor dietary input (food deserts in many communities play a significant role in this) but also, in no small part, because they engage in little if any beneficial exercise — all of which results in greatly exacerbated negative health outcomes for US citizenry.
Compare the on-camera physical deportment of Joe Biden at his present age with other US President’s in their 70’s: Ronald Reagan in his late 70’s as his second term came to an end looked quite frail and elderly — dementia enhanced his swift decline, but he looked about a decade older than JB; Donald Trump at 74 looks and is obese, he doesn’t move well (particularly ascending/descending stairs/ramps, his speech is regularly laced with rambling incoherency:Jimmy Carter at age 78 looked and moved similarly to JB, and at 96 continues to perform physically and mentally well ahead of the vast majority of elderly his age and a decade (or two) younger.
So how about you take that drawing of a stooped geezer supported by a walker and put it in a wastebasket where it belongs, Mr. RWNJ editorial cartoonist liar.
