Supporters of Joe Biden are sharing photoshopped images of the president without acknowledging their alterations amid concerns he is not fit for another term.
Biden announced his 2024 reelection campaign in April. Polls show a majority of Americans are worried the 80-year-old won’t make it through another four years and are worried about his health.
An image shared by Democratic strategist Chris D. Jackson apparently is edited to blur Biden’s face for wrinkles to make him look younger and provide proof he’s physically fit. The post contrasts him with former President Donald Trump, who is 77.
As I have said before, if they want to make this campaign about fitness: game on.

Jackson does not mention that the picture of Biden is edited. Former White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain retweeted the picture, boosting its reach to over a million impressions, Townhall noted.
The image of Biden was originally seen on Getty Images, according to the outlet. The picture was apparently edited to make Biden’s teeth bigger, his skin tanner and his skin smoother.
‘The View’s’ Anna Navarro also shared the same edited picture of Biden on her Twitter.
An April tweet from Jackson shows another edited picture of Biden with similar effects to make him look younger. A follow-up tweet states, “My thoughts: anytime they want to lie about President Biden’s mental fitness, we should tell the truth about Trump’s mental and physical fitness.”
They want to make this race about fitness for office?

Yet more images from Jackson show similar editing endeavors.
I’ll just leave this right here.
As I have said, if they want to make fitness for office an issue, I’m game.
