Joe Biden’s chief aides are being accused of “aggressively” covering up the devastating effects of aging on the under-fire president.

As America’s oldest leader – set to turn 82 in November – faces growing calls to quit the 2024 White House race, insiders close to his campaign claim his team of advisers are working relentlessly to cover up how age is taking a toll on the flailing Democrat.

insiders close to Biden's campaign claim his team of aides are working relentlessly to cover up how age is taking a toll on the flailing Democrat.

The sources say a string of his senior staff are throwing a ring of steel around Biden and “stage-managing” everything from his schedule and movements to his personal interactions and media interviews in a desperate battle to hide signs of the octogenarian’s struggles with debating, quick thinking and encounters with potential voters.

In an in-depth chat with a series of Biden campaign insiders, The Wall Street Journal is also reporting White House bosses have “limited” Biden’s daily diary and shielded him from unplanned exchanges.

Sources said: “The White House has limited Biden’s daily itinerary and shielded him from impromptu exchanges.

Advisers have restricted news conferences and media appearances, twice declining Super Bowl halftime interviews—an easy way to reach millions of voters—and sought to make sure meetings with donors stuck to scripted pleasantries.”

An audit of Biden’s diary shows he’s held fewer news conferences and interviews than any U.S. president at this point in their terms in 40 years.

Only President Ronald Reagan, who was voted into power in 1980 and was aged 77 when he left office in 1989, had less meetings at the same period in his first term.

Several senior White House advisers have “aggressively stage-managed” Biden’s schedule, movements, and personal interactions.

Those closest to the president have named a string of “big picture” advisers they say are to “blame” for battling to stop the public from spotting signs of the president's struggles.

Those named include 66-year-old senior adviser Anita Dunn and long-time political counselors Steve Ricchetti, 67, and Mike Donilon, 65.

Insiders also fingered lesser-known aides who have reportedly served as gatekeepers for the president – including close confidants Annie Tomasini, 47, and Anthony Bernal.

Biden’s closest allies have defended the 81-year-old amid reports he’s “forgetful,” regularly “stumbles over words” and consistently “struggles to convey his thoughts”.

Senator Patty Murray, 73 – a longtime and outspoken supporter of President Biden – said: “He engages in a very personal way, asking questions.”

But even the Biden backer changed her tune in the wake of Biden’s disastrous debate performance in Atlanta last month.

Some of Biden’s biggest donors felt “duped” by the president’s team as they “aggressively stage-manage” the Democratic leader to cover up his age.

Deep-pocketed donors have singled out Jeffrey Katzenberg – the 73-year-old Hollywood mogul who serves as the current co-chair of Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign – as one of the chief “tricksters”.

Their rage intensified after seeing Biden’s cringe-inducingly weak performance against Trump in the June 27 debate.

Donald Trump first dubbed President Biden “Sleepy Joe” during the last race for the White House in 2020.

Alarm over Biden’s age and abilities mounted last year when Special Counsel Robert Hur published a damning report regarding the president’s possession of classified documents.

Biden sparked more worries after repeatedly falling up the stairs while climbing aboard Air Force One, and again during an appearance at a graduation ceremony for the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Nine House Democrats are calling on him to quit the race for the 2024 White House.

Scores of celebrities, including outspoken writer Stephen King, 76, and director Rob Reiner, 77, have also called on the president to withdraw.
