Joe Biden, The Jock

It’s taken for granted that the corporate media are a bunch of corrupt and dishonest swine, but every now and then, it’s helpful to check in on just how depraved they can be. The coverage of Joe Biden’s brush with a broken hip is exactly one of those times.

The president on Thursday crashed to the stage floor after giving a commencement speech to Air Force Academy graduates in Colorado Springs. By my count, it’s the one-billionth time this rapidly declining man has collapsed while simply attempting to move through time and space, a spectacle that necessarily stuns the nation for all of the obvious reasons. If it were a 50- or even 60-year-old man, it would be trivial and maybe funny. But this is an 80-year-old president who is pretending to be an athlete and who is, sadly, running for reelection.

That’s pretty alarming. But because the media got Biden elected and are therefore invested in keeping up the illusion that he’s not a barely breathing prune of a person, the reality needed some finessing.

The New York Times dutifully noted in an article that the collapse came after an “energetic” speech — he’s youthful, people! — and that it was merely one of those “embarrassing moments” that are “not uncommon for presidents.”

Biden needed the help of two men to get back on his feet. But, folks! He’s fit as a fiddle!

This is the same paper that turned a video of then-President Trump walking down a stage ramp into a heated scandal. Here’s how the Times covered that affair in earnest: “President Trump faced new questions about his health on Sunday, after videos emerged of him gingerly walking down a ramp at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and having trouble bringing a glass of water to his mouth during a speech there.” The article added, “[T]here was no evidence that the ramp was slippery, and the skies were clear during the ceremony.”

Trump takes a careful descent, and it’s a health scare. Biden struggles to stand, and, well, that’s just one of those “embarrassing moments.” How about that energetic speech?!

When Biden returned to the White House, he crashed his forehead on Marine One’s doorway. Noah Robertson, the reporter tasked that day with covering the president for the White House press pool, made a note of it in one of his dispatches but said Biden “otherwise appeared spry.”

Isn’t that the Biden we all know? Spry? When does he get his Heisman?

It’s campaign season, and if you want to know just how far the media will go for Biden, remember the time they saw him crumble to the ground and described it as a game-winning rebound.
