Hillary Clinton Admits Biden Has an Age Issue

(FeaturedHeadlines.com) – Although US President Joe Biden’s age has been a point of concern among voters and critics for years now, the issue came to the forefront of public discussion after the release of a special counsel report, which detailed the president’s fading memory. Even fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton recently admitted that Biden’s age is a genuine concern.

In an interview recorded on February 7, one day before the release of the special counsel report, Clinton said that Biden’s age is a “legitimate issue,” adding that she has discussed the matter with White House officials. Age is also a legitimate issue for Donald Trump, who is just several years younger than Biden, Clinton said.

Biden, 81, is the oldest president in the history of the United States. If re-elected, Biden would serve until the age of 86. Unlike Clinton, Democratic congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said that she considers Biden very sharp.

Pelosi noted that she has little room to talk about Biden’s age, given that she is a couple of years older than him. Age is an objective fact, but its impact is relative, Pelosi said. Everyone makes mistakes from “time to time,” Pelosi added.

However, a vast majority of Americans agree with Clinton that Biden’s age is a real problem. Eighty-six percent (86%) of people in the United States believe that Biden is too old to serve a second term as president, according to a poll released on February 11.

A majority of Americans, 59%, believe that both Biden and Trump are too old to hold the White House for a second time. Trump took and claims to have passed cognitive tests as part of his presidential medical checkups, whereas Biden’s physician has not included a formal assessment in his reports.

Nevertheless, the question of Biden’s mental competence is clearly on the minds of voters ahead of Election Day in November, perhaps leaving Democrats like Clinton to consider the possibility of replacing him on the ballot.
