The First Lady, Jill Biden, wasn’t having any of it when a reporter dared to question her husband’s age and ability to lead the country. MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski had the audacity to express concerns about President Biden’s physical and mental health, insinuating that he might not be up to the task as the 2024 election approaches. But Jill wasn’t about to let that slide.
Jill Biden Defends 81-Year-Old Senile Joe Biden

Brzezinski had the nerve to bring up Biden’s age, pointing out that he would be 86 at the end of a potential second term, and even suggested that as his life partner of 46 years, Jill might be worried about his ability to handle the stress of the presidency. The nerve! But Jill firmly stood her ground, touting her husband’s “vigor,” “energy,” and “passion.” However, it’s hard to ignore the recent incident where Jill had to rush to Biden’s side to guide him when he appeared lost and confused. Not exactly a ringing endorsement of his mental acuity, if you ask me.
But Jill didn’t stop there. She took aim at those who have reservations about voting for her husband due to his age, proclaiming that he is a “wise” man with “a lot of experience” and can make thoughtful decisions. She even had the audacity to claim that Biden knows every leader on the world stage. Yet, just recently, Biden struggled to remember Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s name, causing an awkward pause during an announcement. Hmm, knowing every leader, you say?
And as if that wasn’t enough, polls show that a majority of Americans, including 69 percent of Democrats, believe Biden is too old to effectively serve as president for four more years. Even a Monmouth University poll found that 76 percent of voters agree. But leave it to the White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, to spin the narrative by claiming that it’s not Biden’s age that should be the focus, but rather his experiences. Nice try, but the facts speak for themselves.
It’s clear that the concerns about Biden’s age and health are mounting, and even the First Lady’s staunch defense can’t erase the doubts that many Americans have about whether Biden is up to the task. But hey, at least he joked about his age, saying it was “difficult turning 60” on his 81st birthday. If that doesn’t reassure you about his mental sharpness, I don’t know what will.
