Legacy media outlets are increasingly distancing themselves from President Joe Biden. The latest example came from a CBS “60 Minutes” host.
After a recent interview with Biden, “60 Minutes” host Scott Pelley said that the president seemed “tired.”
Pelley shared that as they spoke about the volatile situation in the Middle East, the president seemed to show his age:
“As we spoke … America’s oldest president seemed tired from directing all of this.”
Pelley added: “It had been a rough week and [our camera/production team] could see it on him.”
Notably, Biden is the oldest serving president in America’s history. He is 80 years old, and if he wins his bid for reelection, he will exit office at age 86.
Pelley noted that though Biden appeared tired, he was “very clear on what he stood for and how his policies, in his view, would see America through.”
The president’s physical and mental fitness has been in the news in recent months, with near falls, moments of confusion, slurred speech and repeated comments leading many to express concerns about his readiness to effectively serve a second term.
“Every Democratic consultant I’ve talked to in recent weeks said that’s the only refrain they pick up on Biden,” Martin wrote, citing the president’s age.
An October Monmouth University poll showed 76% of voters viewed Biden as “too old” to serve another term.
Graciously breaching the subject, Pelley asked Biden if he was “serious about running again for another term. The president said he was “sure” and that he wanted to lead America in ushering in an era of world peace.
