Joe Biden

( – Democrat US President Joe Biden struggled to give a clear-cut answer in a television interview to dispel public concerns about his old age, mental and cognitive abilities, and overall fitness for the job.

Recent public opinion polls have revealed that a growing number of Democrat voters wouldn’t want to see Biden, who is turning 80 in November, run for reelection in 2024.

The president was speaking in an interview for CBS’s “60 Minutes” about being in “pretty good shape” when interviewer Scott Pelley remarked that he is “the oldest president ever.”

Pelly, however, cited public concerns over Biden’s fitness for the job and asked the president what he thought when he heard those.

“Watch me. And ma– honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me. If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then– then, you know, that’s one thing,” Biden replied.

He went on to try to argue that keeping his demanding schedule as president is sufficient proof of his mental and physical fitness.

“It’s another thing, you just watch and– and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I’m doing. I– I think that– you know– I don’t– when I sit down with our NATO allies and keep ’em together, I don’t have ’em saying, “Wait a minute, w– how– how old are you? What are you– what say?” Biden declared.

“You know, I mean, it’s a matter of, you know, that old expression: The proof of the pudding’s in the eating. I mean, I– I– I respect the fact that people would say, you know, “You’re old.” And– but I think it relates to h– how much energy you have, and whether or not the job you’re doing is one consistent with what any person of any age would be able to do,” the president stated further.

He gave a similar answer when Pelley asked how he would assess his mental focus.

“Oh, it’s focused. I’d say it’s– I think it’s– I– I haven’t– look, I have trouble even mentioning, even saying to myself, my own head, the number of years,” Biden responded.

“I no more think of myself as being as old as I am than fly. I mean, it’s just not– I haven’t– observed anything in terms of– there’s not things I don’t do now that I did before, whether it’s physical, or mental, or anything else,” he added.
