Report: Biden Is Only Functional Six Hours A Day, Five Days A Week

According to his aides, President Joe Biden is a spry 80-year-old — at least between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Outside of that time frame, he’s back to being Sleepy Joe, according to a new report.

On Friday, Axios reported that the Biden White House has a hard time planning any public and private events before midmorning and in the evening for the 46th president given his age and lack of energy. This, of course, comes as no surprise to most Americans who witness his diminished stamina and mental acuity on a near-daily basis.

“Biden’s close advisers say he’s mentally sharp,” Axios reported. “But even some of them concede his age has diminished his energy, significantly limiting his schedule.”

It sounds like a joke, but Axios even reported that “Many White House officials say they’re amazed at Biden’s stamina — often adding the caveat: ‘for his age.'”

According to Axios, Biden’s 2023 schedule has just four public events before 10:00 a.m., 12 public events after 6:00 p.m., and 12 weekends out of the public spotlight.


Even when Biden is in public during his purportedly preferred hours, he’s not exactly functional. For example, on Thursday, Biden failed to remember the last country he visited when asked by a child.

“I’ve met with 89 heads of state so far,” Biden said, “So, uh, I’m trying to think what’s the last place I was. … It’s hard to keep track … uh.”

“Ireland!” a kid in the crowd yelled.

“Yeah, you’re right, Ireland,” he replied. “That’s what it was. How did you know that?”

The president was in Ireland just two weeks ago. As Biden runs for reelection, it appears likely that his campaign will try his 2020 strategy all over again: Hide him in a basement and limit rallies.

It’s a bold move, but when you can only operate at peak capacity 30 hours a week as president of the United States, what else can you do?
