Former President Donald Trump mocked President Joe Biden for having an “awful facelift", claims a new book. The author writes Trump also made fun of Biden's stutter while watching a debate between the 2020 Democratic candidates. Michael Bender, Wall Street Journal journalist recalled in his book 'Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost' how Trump had invited reporters to watch the February 19, 2020 debate with him aboard Air Force One, as they flew back from a Trump rally that night in Phoenix.

In his book, Bender wrote how Trump had a lot to say: "Trump then started offering his own color commentary: Bloomberg was smart, but not quick. Biden had an awful facelift. Bernie was sharp, and Warren was a good debater, even though she was nasty. But the climax for Trump was Bloomberg melting down when rivals, led by Warren, skewered him over his history of sexual harassment allegations and past support for stop-and-frisk policing. Trump crowed at every stammer he saw on-screen. ‘He stutters like Biden!’ Trump said." Biden struggled with a stutter as a young boy and spent years battling to overcome it.

It is no secret that Biden has undergone numerous cosmetic procedures to modify his appearance, including Botox, hair transplants and dental work, plastic surgeons say. Surgeons have said that Biden began to look noticeably different during the 2008 campaign. That was when the then-senator from Delaware allegedly remodeled his hairline, filled in the wrinkles on his face and forehead, and installed dental veneers. "Without any question, Joe Biden had hair transplants," Dr Barry Cohen, a Washington, DC-area plastic surgeon said.

Biden has never confirmed undergoing any of these procedures nor has he spoken about it in public. "In fact, he had bad plugs years ago," Cohen alleges. "Subsequently, he filled in his frontal hairline to camouflage the bad “Barbie dollesque” plugs. I suspect he has regular Botox and probably filler. If he had a facelift, he needs another." Not just his hair and skin, Biden’s teeth have also gained considerable attention. In 2012 cosmetic surgeons speculated that Biden was fitted with either porcelain veneers or a porcelain bridge. The procedure costs something around $20,000.

Dr Lawrence M Koplin, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon said that while Biden’s procedures aren’t perfect, they were well done. Koplin suspected that Biden, after he lost his son Beau to brain cancer in 2015, wanted to head off the aging process that is exacerbated by tragedies. "It is not a stretch to imagine his desire to reach back to “freshen” his appearance and rewind to a time when things were better and happier," Koplin said.

In 2015, journalist Edward Klein wrote in a book, 'Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary', in which he said that Hillary Clinton was operated on by a surgeon in a "mini operating room in her home with the latest medical equipment." The former secretary of the state allegedly underwent secret plastic surgery before starting her campaign for the 2016 presidency, Klein’s book claimed. It is reported that Bill Clinton "wanted her to get a face-lift" and "she couldn't do anything about the calendar - she'd be 69 years old in 2016 - but she could do something about the lines and sagging skin on her face," according to Klein. Hillary "had no intention of going to a clinic, so she asked a well-known plastic surgeon to set up a mini operating room in her Chappaqua, New York, home with the latest medical equipment." She had her "cheeks lifted and her wrinkles and lines Botoxed" and had 'work done' on her eyes, neck and forehead, according to Klein.
