Oldest president ever spends more than 25% of his time at home

President Joe Biden has spent more than a quarter of his year and a half stationed at his home in Delaware, CNN reported Monday.

Biden, the oldest person ever elected president, spent 174 days, including nearly every weekend, at his two Delaware homes. By comparison, former President Donald Trump, who the media widely criticized for his absence from the White House, had only spent 135 days at home at this point in his presidency.

While a White House spokesperson told CNN Biden is “constantly at work,” the administration blocked reporters on who is visiting the Delaware president. The Secret Service has repeatedly denied New York Post The Freedom of Information Act asks for “any records identifying visitors to President Biden’s Delaware residences,” saying it could find “no responsive records.” Biden promised soon after taking office that his administration would uphold the “highest standards of transparency.”

The JobThe editorial board of ‘s blasted the Secret Service’s denial, saying the claim “makes the president look guilty as hell.” While serving as vice president, Biden had meetings with his son Hunter’s “shady business dealings with the Chinese,” said Hunter Biden’s former associate Tony Bobulinski. The Justice Department is reportedly investigating Hunter Biden over taxes and trade practices in China and Ukraine.

The report also comes as members of the president’s own party raise concerns about his age. The president will turn 80 on November 20, causing “anxiety in the West Wing”, the Free Washington Beacon reported. Last month, Biden came under intense scrutiny after he called on a congresswoman to stand up, unaware that the congresswoman had died months earlier.

Historian Tim Naftali told CNN that Biden’s decision to return home so often causes another self-imposed headache for the president.

“People will assume the worst if it’s not visible,” Naftali said. “It’s something that comes from being the longest serving president.”
