Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon ponders the political significance of a recent day focusing on abuse of older Americans.

What happened: A White House aide purporting to speak on behalf of President Joe Biden, 80, issued a proclamation Wednesday to commemorate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

What they’re saying: “Around the world, a silent epidemic of elder abuse is denying seniors the ability to age with dignity, security, and grace,” the statement read. “Today, let us pledge to protect seniors who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect not only because of a lifetime of contribution but because of their overriding humanity.”

Why it matters: Dr. Jill Biden and the Democratic Party are forcing an innocent octogenarian to run another grueling campaign for president of the United States in the hope that he will continue to serve in the office until the age of 86. If that doesn’t qualify as elder abuse, we don’t know what does. Yet the doctor and her accomplices continue to evade justice for their crimes against humanity.

• President Biden, sometimes referred to as “Slippy Joe,” suffered a hard fall earlier this month while attending the Air Force Academy graduation in Colorado Springs. He wouldn’t have to keep making these life-threatening public appearances if his friends and family members were truly committed to letting him “age with dignity, security, and grace.”

• Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among adults aged 65 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Biden might not survive the next one. That is why leading Democrats are already jockeying to replace Biden as the party’s nominee in 2024.

By the numbers: Biden would have to survive another 510 days to make it to Election Day in 2024. He would have to survive another 586 days to make it to Inauguration Day in 2025, and other 2,047 days to serve out the remainder of his second term.
