Joe Biden has been forced to make more appearances lately due to the Israeli War.
As we have seen before, this has resulted in a tired and confused Joe Biden, to the point that Jill is now by his side more than ever, clearly helping Biden navigate the treacherous world of the stage and podium so as not to make a complete and utter fool of himself.
Joe Biden is not used to working a full week or a full day.
This administration has protected Biden from the first day in office, which has meant very short public appearances, a communications team that shuts it down after about 15 minutes when he does a presser and takes questions, and extra long weekends.
Biden has been unable to do that since Hamas picked its fight with Israel, and it shows.
During Biden's softball interview with "60 Minutes" this past weekend, host Scott Pelley even made a note of it. He stated:
"As we spoke to the president, his Secretary of State was in Israel; his Defense Secretary was at a NATO meeting on Ukraine. America's oldest president seemed tired from directing all of this."
"It had been a rough week and we could see it on him."
Biden seems to get confused easily when he is tired, and his recent appearances were no different.
It should not be hard for someone serving as president to remember which way to leave the stage, but Joe has struggled with this numerous times, and he did so again this weekend.
Jill Biden has been by his side more often than not these days, and it was Jill who rescued Biden from really embarrassing himself…
Jill Biden's new job is making sure Joe doesn't get lost leaving the stage.

I would suspect we will be seeing a lot of this in the coming months, as Jill will do just about anything to prevent a feeble image from getting blasted out there that would prevent Biden from winning a second term.
This goes beyond politics at this point and is just plain elder abuse.
Joe might be able to keep it together for a quick interview or speech but is just not capable of putting in the work, and he surely will not be able to do the job if we are forced into this Hamas-Israel War.
Yet, Biden's handlers seem more intent than ever on portraying him as a tough guy, now sending him off to Israel for a photo op with Prime Minister Netanyahu.
We all saw what happened to Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), with Democrats running her into the ground after her illness until she eventually died.
Joe Biden should not be in the White House, let alone running for another term. But, as usual, Dems are choosing power over their candidate's health.
