President Joe Biden defended his health concerns ahead of the upcoming 2024 presidential elections on Sunday in an exclusive interview on MSNBC’s The Sunday Show.
During the interview, reporter Jonathan Capehart questions the President’s confidence in running for re-election, even phoning Capehart’s Aunt Gloria into the interview.
“Let’s say Trump doesn’t run again,” Capehart asks. “Convince Gloria that she should stick with you.”
“I think it’s a legitimate thing to be concerned about anyone’s age, including mine. And that’s totally legitimate,” Biden says. “But I think the best way to make the judgement is to watch me. Am I slowing up? Am I…don’t have the same pace?”
The President then discussed Democrat voters’ concerns on his growing age: “That old joke, everyone talks about the new 70’s, 50’s, and all that stuff. I’m a great respecter of faith. I could get a disease tomorrow, I could drop dead tomorrow.”
Biden challenged voters that doubt his mental proficiency to ‘vote against me’: “But in terms of my energy level, in terms of how much I’m able to do, I think people should look and say, “does he still have the same passion for what he’s doing?” If they think I do, that’s fine. If they don’t, then they should vote against me!”
Towards the end of the clip, President Biden creepily drops into Capehart’s personal space, placing both hands on his shoulders and says, “I can’t even say the age I’m gonna be. I can’t even get it out of my mouth,” to which the reporter nervously laughs.
The uncanny but unsurprising interview prompted viewers to respond in the comments, criticizing the President for his bizarre train of thought.
“I did watch you and every day you look lost and out of place, the problem is the MSM is not covering this so a lot of voters don’t know how bad you really are,” one commented on the video, uploaded to the ‘GOP War Room’ YouTube channel.
“He thinks that cringe worthy running thing he does means he’s young and chipper,” another daringly criticized. “He’s talking about your brain Joe, he just doesn’t want to be canceled by the woke mob.”
“You know the reporter got scared for a second until he remembered he had no hair.”
According to the latest Reuters/Ispos poll, 54% of Americans disapprove of the President’s job performance, with one in three respondents emphasizing the economy as the ‘biggest problem facing America.’
