Joe Biden defends himself against doubts about his age with jokes about his age

President Joe Biden joked about getting old Monday to ward off doubts about his age in the 2024 presidential campaign. (Check out the video below.)

“Tell you what, someone said, ‘You know what? That Biden, he’s getting old, man. “I’ll tell you what,” said the 80-year-old incumbent in Philadelphia. “Guess what? Guess what? You know, the only thing that comes with age is a little bit of wisdom. I’ve been doing this longer than anyone, and guess what? I will continue to do it with your help. “

The remark could be a “subtle reaction” to a Biden biographer’s comment on Sunday’s Meet the Press that he wouldn’t be shocked if Biden dropped out of the race, Fox News’ Peter Doocy said. per mediaite.

“It would come as a surprise to me, but not a complete surprise,” said Franklin Foer, author of “The Last Politician: In the Joe Biden White House and in the fight for America’s future.”

“It wouldn’t be a total shock,” Foer added.

Biden may also have responded to some polls that suggested concerns about his age.

A recent AP-NORC poll found that 77% of adults say Biden is too old for a second term, compared to just 51% who think the same of former President Donald Trump, the 77-year-old Republican frontrunner.

However, the same poll shows Biden and Trump are dead heat in 2024, despite Trump facing 91 criminal charges on four counts.
