A remarkable revelation regarding President Joe Biden is unlikely to sway undecided Americans in their support for him in the upcoming election. As stated by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) during Turning Point USA’s annual AmericaFest event on Tuesday, Biden’s aides have recently implemented additional safety measures for the president’s travel.
“Listen, we have a president of the United States [whose] team carries extra pairs of pants with him when he travels in case he has poopy pants,” Cruz said, as noted in a viral clip posted online.
“Big and stinky if true,” conservative influencer Collin Rugg said in an X post containing the clip.
According to The Western Journal, however, that was only half of Cruz’s statement.
“I want you to pause and think how the enemies of America are feeling,” the senator continued, setting up a punchline for a joke: “Eh, depends.”
Growing concerns among Americans about President Biden’s advanced age have been evident for months, given that he is now 81 years old, making him the oldest president in history. These concerns primarily revolve around his cognitive abilities, as he appears to be facing increasing struggles in this regard.
A recent incident further fueled these concerns. At a public event last month, Biden failed to provide any assistance or reassurance to voters when he couldn’t recall the name of a reporter. This incident took place during a press conference in Woodside, Calif., while he was engaged in discussions with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Biden openly admitted that he had been instructed to call on a reporter from CBS News but confessed that he couldn’t recall the journalist’s name.
“I’m embarrassed,” Biden said, looking down at cue cards, which he frequently uses. “I think it’s CBS, but I can’t remember who at CBS. And I’m sorry.”

Furthermore, the Republican National Committee’s research division recently released a video montage of Biden, which portrays a concerning image of a commander-in-chief experiencing a deteriorating mental capacity.

In the realm of battleground states, Former President Donald Trump has taken the lead over Biden in five out of six states, with substantial margins. This shift can be attributed to black voters switching parties and the concerns of many regarding the current president’s age.
“Trump leads Biden by a whopping 10 points in Nevada, six points in Georgia, five points in both Arizona and Michigan, and four points in Pennsylvania. Biden’s sole lead is in Wisconsin, where he beats Trump by two points,” Fox News reported, citing a New York Times-Siena College poll released earlier this month.
Trump had won those before, but now his lead dominates where the polls were at in 2020.
Fox News adds:
“The polling attributes Biden’s poor showing to a devastating lack of confidence due to his age. Voters said they trusted Trump to better handle the economy, foreign policy and immigration.
Trump’s performance also came thanks to unprecedented levels of support from black voters, with a record 22% of the demographic siding with him over Biden across the six states, according to NYT.
Trump currently holds a commanding lead in the 2024 Republican Presidential primary, with his closest competitors dozens of points below him.”
“The Outlaws” podcast co-host Darvio Morrow took to the X platform to note that, according to the polling data, Trump got 22 percent of the black vote in the poll.
“Black voters — long a bulwark for Democrats and for Mr. Biden — are now registering 22 percent support in these states for Mr. Trump, a level unseen in presidential politics for a Republican in modern times,” he quoted the Times as saying.
