Leaving a secure basement bunker can be hazardous
Americans are being told Joe Biden fractured his right foot while playing with one of his dogs Saturday. The injury discovered in a scan Sunday will require him to wear a walking boot for several weeks, according to his doctor.
Claiming the injury occurred while playing with his dog certainly carries more panache than saying the feeble senior citizen stumbled and fell.
Biden is a barely walking testament to modern medicine. He previously suffered a brain aneurysm. During surgery, doctors found a second aneurysm that had not bled, which they also treated. While hospitalized for that surgery, he was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis and a pulmonary embolism, causing a medical team to insert an “inferior vena cava filter,” to prevent future blood clots from reaching the heart and lungs. He was then put on oral anti-coagulants.
He’s had several non-melanoma skin cancer lesions surgically removed and has sinus and nasal surgeries. Biden takes a statin to control his cholesterol levels and blood thinners to prevent the most troubling risks, blood clots or stroke. Since 2003, Biden has had persistent episodes of atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat.
Biden’s gallbladder was removed. He’s had multiple surgeries and physical therapy treatments for orthopedic injuries. Biden had surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia a major cause of urinary incontinence. This 2019 medical summary was previously released by Kevin C. O’Connor, D.O., Biden‘s primary care physician.
It defies logic that Dr. O’Connor concluded Biden is “a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”
Inauguration day is Jan. 20, 2021. If Biden — who has increasingly exhibited cognitive difficulties,*(must watch brief videos) is sworn in, after voter certification and the Electoral College votes — at age 78, he would be the oldest president in American history. Kamala Harris must be eagerly anticipating Joe’s next playful jostle with his dog.
Biden has had numerous irritable exchanges with reporters and voters when pressed about his age and health in recent months.
Asked by a reporter whether he would release his medical records, Biden said he would, paused, then in true wing-nut fashion, challenged: “What health concerns, man? You wanna wrestle?”
While campaigning in Iowa, Biden had a tense go with a voter, who said he was 83-years-old and did not have the mental faculties that he did when he was younger. The voter challenged Biden over his age and questioned him about his son Hunter’s nefarious and lucrative business dealings in Ukraine.
Biden responded, “The reason I’m running is because I’ve been around a long time and I know more than most people know. And I can get things done. That’s why I’m running. if you want to check my shape, let’s do push-ups together, man. Let’s run, let’s do whatever you wanna do. Let’s take an IQ test.”
