(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The octogenarian commander-in-chief of the United States military, who has a long history of mental breaks with reality and steep cognitive declines, has for years been racked with paranoia and distrust of his Secret Service detail, grousing bitterly about accusations that his dog Major had repeatedly bitten agents.
President Joe Biden also has deep worry and concern about the loyalty of agents over fears that “the Secret Service is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative” and “MAGA sympathizers,” according to excerpts of Chris Whipple’s new book The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House.
Biden reportedly had a penchant for deriding agents complaints and refusing to believe details of a biting incident with the White House’s dog, Major.
Despite Secret Service records that revealed Major had bitten various agents on eight different days, with some bites resulting in serious injury, Biden has steadfastly insisted the incidents were fabricated.
“We’re sure Major is a good dog but these records show he was involved in many more biting incidents than the Biden White House has publicly acknowledged,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which had obtained records detailing the dog biting incidents.
“It is disturbing to see a White House cover-up of numerous injuries to Secret Service and White House personnel by the Bidens’ family pet.”
“A bigger problem was Biden’s discomfort with his Secret Service detail; some of them were MAGA sympathizers. He didn’t trust them,” Whipple wrote, according to a copy of the book obtained by The Hill. “Surrounded by a new phalanx of strangers, Biden couldn’t help but wonder, Do these people really want me here?”
The aged president is reportedly so suspect and paranoid about the Secret Service that he won’t speak freely if agents are within earshot, according to the Independent’s review of Whipple’s book.
When pressed on the book’s content, the White House comms team claimed that Whipple “did not give us a chance to verify the materials that are attributed here”.
“We respect that there will be no shortage of books written about the administration containing a wide variety of claims. We don’t plan to engage in confirmations or denials when it comes to the specifics of those claims,” the spokesperson said.
