Fit to drop (out)? How Joe Biden has gone from exuberant candidate to vacant president in five long years – and left world wondering if he could see out another term in White House

Being Leader of the Free World is one of the most challenging jobs on the planet.

And the phrase ‘ageing like a President’ has come to define the toll that being Leader of the Free World takes on the incumbent.

The men who have served in America’s highest office have very often left with grey hair and plenty of wrinkles.

But when Joe Biden won the 2020 election and entered the White House aged 78, he already had both those signs of ageing.

He also admitted that he was ‘a gaffe machine’ and he lived up to his reputation as he muddled up wars, forgot names, dozed off in a climate change summit and even mixed up fellow world leaders.

But there are growing concerns about the physical and mental costs for President Biden, who turns 82 on November 20 – 15 days after his election battle with Donald Trump comes to a head.

Last night he appeared frozen for approaching a minute while others danced around him at an event at the White House – and there have an increasing number of muddled speeches, trips, falls and even onstage snoozes in recent years, especially since the pandemic.

Eminent historian Christopher Phelps, an expert on US politics, told MailOnline today that the presidency has clearly taken its toll on Joe Biden. And millions of Americans will have his cognitive abilities on their mind when they vote – but Donald Trump’s criminal conviction and controversies will be weighing heavily too.
