Joe Biden slips & twists ankle ‘while playing with his dog,’ visits orthopedist ‘out of an abundance’ of caution

Joe Biden slips & twists ankle ‘while playing with his dog,’ visits orthopedist ‘out of an abundance’ of caution
Joe Biden has slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with his dog Major, according to a statement from his office, which said the 78-year-old’s health will be examined by an orthopedic specialist.

Biden's motorcade was seen arriving at the Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists in Newark, but reportedly maneuvered so that journalists on the press pool could not see him entering the building.

Biden’s dog Major has received fawning press attention since the Democrat’s projected victory in the presidential election, which Donald Trump continues to challenge. The German shepherd would be the first shelter dog to reside in the White House.

Biden’s advanced age, combined with a history of public gaffes, has made his latest ‘slip’ fodder for his critics on social media.

“Fit to lead a country but can’t play with his dog without being hospitalized,” reporter Jon Miller joked.

Many others, however, have simply wished the Democrat well, with some pushing back against the mockery.
