Zoomed-In Video: Troubling Post-Debate Moment with Joe and Jill Biden and Another Handler Has People Talking

There will be a lot of clips of the debate, but this was literally right out of the gate.

After a week of vacation/debate prep at Camp David.

And whatever drugs he received.

At this point it’s generally agreed in all but the most loyal of Biden superfan circles that the president lost Thursday night’s debate, and badly.

Let’s say it right now: Donald Trump might have won the 2024 election tonight. You’d think President Joe Biden would have at least a good performance for one-third or even two-thirds of the debate. That never happened. Biden was incapable of delivering cogent and coherent remarks about the cornerstones of his presidency. He was incapable of defending what little legislative wins he clinched during his first term and was lost trying to pivot and deflect from the pointed attacks from Donald Trump.

But it was something that happened just after the debate concluded that’s gotten people talking, and it involves Biden’s handler-in-chief, Jill Biden.

Because there was no studio audience, we didn’t get any shots while the debate was going on of any family members, friends, or others who were there in support of the candidates. But as soon the debate was over and as soon as she got the opportunity, the First Lady – who is often seen pushing the purported leader of the free world and directing him on where he needs to go, rushed onto the stage.

Video clips show her briefly hugging him and then immediately trying to guide a frozen-looking Joe Biden away from the podium and toward two steps. She grabs either his hand or arm, and they move forward, with Biden shuffling slowly, eventually gingerly stepping down.

The zoomed-in version actually shows another person, presumably another handler or perhaps a CNN staffer, walking up to Biden and appearing to offer additional assistance:

Meanwhile Trump after the debate:

Mark Van der Veen offers some of the most analytical and insightful writings on politics. He regularly opines on the motives and political calculations of politicians and candidates, and whether or not their strategy will work. Van der Veen offers a contrast to many on this list by sticking mainly to a fact-based style of writing that is generally combative with opposing ideologies.
