(RepublicanInformer.com)- According to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, here is a query that journalists shouldn’t ask.
Following a report over the weekend about Democrats being concerned about his leadership, age, and ability to defeat former President Donald Trump in a rematch, CNN’s Don Lemon pressed her Monday night on whether President Joe Biden has the stamina, physically and mentally, to run for reelection and lead beyond 2024.
Jean-Pierre said, “Don! You’re asking me this question! Oh my gosh, he’s the president of the United States. I can’t even keep up with him,” before mentioning some recent travel.
She said he just came back from California and he just got back from New Mexico. She said no one should ask that question. Look at his results.
In December, Biden declared that if his health permitted, he would seek reelection. On Monday, Jean-Pierre tweeted, “To be clear, as the President has mentioned often, he plans to run in 2024.”
The 2022 midterm elections, in which Republicans are generally predicted to regain control of at least one chamber of Congress, and Biden’s poor support ratings have Democrats growing increasingly concerned about his leadership, according to a New York Times article published on Saturday.
Because of his frequent mistakes that assistants frequently have to fix, Biden’s detractors doubt his physical stamina and mental sharpness. In the article, David Axelrod, a former Obama adviser, claimed that Biden’s successes had been overshadowed by his age. The president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, which would be a significant concern because “the presidency is a monstrously exhausting job,” according to Axelrod.
Jean-Pierre criticized the NY Times story for being “hearsay” heavy.
One wonders how someone’s age is “hearsay.”
Jean-Pierre spoke for a nation and said it’s “salacious,” and the American people do not care about that. They care about how Biden will deliver for the American people and how he can improve their quality of life. She said the president is “concentrating on that.”
The point the Biden administration is making just very well be, “what does it matter how old he is if he stinks at what he does?”
It’s a good point. They got us with that one.
