“We‘re told that the thrust of the President‘s direction was to significantly ramp up the campaign‘s efforts to highlight the crazy s*** that Trump says in public.”

White House frustrated with media coverage of Biden’s age and mental health

The revelation coincides with a report that states that Biden campaign and White House were becoming more frustrated with media’s coverage of the incumbent President’s age and the concerns regarding his mental health.

The NY Times revealed that the White House is “extremely upset” with its coverage of the incumbent President’s dismal approval ratings.

In an interview with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, NY Times publisher AG Sulzberger, 43, called 81-year-old Biden a “historically unpopular incumbent” and “the oldest man to ever hold this office.”

“We’ve reported on both of those realities extensively, and the White House has been extremely upset about it,” he asserted.

The American journalist serving as chairman of The New York Times Company further pledged that NY Times will “continue to report fully and fairly” despite the flak it has received from the White House.

The publisher went on to clarify that “we are not saying that this is the same as [former President Donald Trump’s] five court cases or that they are even. ”

“They are different. But they are both true, and the public needs to know both those things,” the Gray Lady’s publisher added.

Concerns over Biden’s age and memory intensified after Special Counsel Robert Hur delivered a report last month following an inquiry into his handling of sensitive papers found at his Delaware home and the Penn Biden Center office in Washington, D.C.

The report highlights that Biden, during interviews with the Special Counsel, “did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended,” and that “he did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”
