The White House is remaining tight-lipped about Joe Biden’s brief visit to his Delaware home on Friday night.
Earlier Friday a reporter asked White House spox Olivia Dalton: “What’s the reason for the president’s trip to Delaware this afternoon?”
“The president is making a brief stop at home,” Oliva Dalton told reporters aboard an Air Force One gaggle on Friday.
President Biden spent a couple hours at the Tioga Marine Terminal in Philadelphia addressing a sparse audience.
As he was about to take the platform, he stumbled and nearly fell on his face.
Joe Biden left Philadelphia at 2 p.m. ET and arrived in New Castle, Delaware at 4 p.m. ET on the same day. After staying for three hours, he finally left at 7:55 p.m. ET to return to the White House.
What did Joe Biden do for three hours at his house in Delaware?
According to defense department statistics, the hourly rate for Marine One is over $20,000, while the hourly rate for Air Force One is $177,843. The cost to American taxpayers of all of Biden’s vacations and travels to Delaware is well over $15 million.
Handlers for President Joe Biden failed to explain his late Friday return from Delaware to the White House.

Is there a connection between Biden’s unexplained trip and the stolen confidential information scandal? Was there a medical emergency?
On Monday, Ian Sams, a spokesman for Joe Biden in the wake of the incident, claimed that Biden had met with Special Counsel Robert Hur for two days, on Sunday and Monday, to discuss his handling of stolen secret documents.
“The President has been interviewed as part of the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Hur. The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday. As we have said from the beginning, the President and the White House are cooperating with this investigation, and as it has been appropriate, we have provided relevant updates publicly, being as transparent as we can consistent with protecting and preserving the integrity of the investigation. We would refer other questions to the Justice Department at this time,” a statement from Ian Sams read.
Five White House staff members were implicated in Biden’s stolen confidential information case, as disclosed this week by the House Oversight Committee.
