(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Even Hillary Clinton has gone public to point out that Joe Biden’s age is a “legitimate issue.” And, she did so at a moment that may hurt Biden the most.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, the former First Lady admitted that Biden’s seniority is a concern stressing that this concern also applies to Donald Trump who is just three years Biden’s junior. “It’s a legitimate issue,” Clinton remarked.
During the conversation, Clinton also talked about the potential difficulty Biden and Trump might face in resonating with younger voters. Yet, she advised the current president to emphasize his wealth of experience beyond politics, touching on aspects like character and wisdom. “I think he should be willing to really pull that out … and I think he should kid more about it,” she suggested.
This advice comes in the backdrop of a recent NBC News poll indicating that 76% of people worry about Biden’s mental readiness for another term. These concerns were amplified by a special counsel report by Robert Hur, which cast doubts on Biden’s mental fitness by detailing his forgetfulness about significant personal and professional milestones.
Biden’s response to these allegations was to assert his mental sharpness and decision-making capabilities in a press conference. “My memory is fine!” he declared, defending his competence. Despite this, he made a notable error by misidentifying the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi as the president of Mexico.
Clinton, despite acknowledging the issue of age, remains a staunch supporter of Biden. She believes his performance as president merits reelection. “I’m for Joe Biden for reelection on the merits because I think he’s done a really good job as president,” she stated.
