Hello! magazine recently published a glowing profile of First Lady Jill Biden and the fitness secrets she uses to maintain "an incredible figure" at 71 years of age.
Yet while the piece manages to heap praise on the first lady, it inadvertently highlights her husband's physical and mental decline.
According to Hello!, Jill Biden "is a big fan of fitness studio Soul Cycle, which sees attendees spend up to an hour sweating it out on a stationary bike."
The article notes that rather than working out alone, the first lady "often ropes political friends in too," including Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff.
Earlier this month, USA Today's wellness and celebrity culture reporter Hannah Yasharoff tweeted out video footage showing Biden and Emhoff leaving a Soul Cycle studio in Georgetown together.

However, the first lady's performance stands in sharp contrast to that of President Joe Biden, who was seen stumbling on a set of stairs while attending the G7 Summit in Japan last week.

As Fox News reported, that incident was brought to the attention of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C. this past Saturday.
Financial Times editor Edward Luce remarked, "He didn't use a railing, and Jill [Biden] wasn't there with him. Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?"
Clinton said in response that voters "have every right to consider" whether Biden is too old and unwell, adding, "It's a concern for anyone."
"We've had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn't go into heart palpitations. But his age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it," she stressed.
That led Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz to ask Fox News host, Sean Hannity, "Do you think it's a bad sign for Joe Biden when Hillary Clinton says he's old and corrupt?"
A bad sign for Joe Biden?!?!
