Inadvertently, President Joe Biden made the case against himself last week.
When the 80-year-old president spoke to ABC News anchor David Muir, he said that Americans can raise questions about his age. Opponents will use that question to challenge his re-election.
Muir noticed that Biden’s critics and supporters are talking about his age. He asked: “They know that if your election is won, you will be 82 when the swearing in takes place.” Your term would end at 86. Are you calculating your age to decide whether to run again?
“No. It’s okay for people to raise questions about my age. “It’s completely legal to do that,” Biden replied. “And the only thing that I can do is to watch you.”
Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is one of Biden’s most prominent critics.

Former Governor of South Carolina is calling for cognitive testing to determine if politicians over 75 are mentally capable of leading critical government positions.
Haley stated in her official campaign launch speech that “In the Americas I see, the permanent politician is going to retire.” “We will have term limits in Congress and mandatory mental competency testing for politicians over 75.”
Haley, 51, added that America isn’t past its prime, but that our politicians are beyond theirs.
The proposal would have an impact on 10% of Congress, which was rebuked by politicians such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Senator Dianne Feinstein (D.Calif.), who declared this month that her intention to retire from Congress, is the oldest member at 89 years. She is three months younger than Senator Chuck Grassley (R.Iowa). She was re-elected last November by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
Biden, on the other hand, is an 80-year-old, healthy, and vigorous individual, his physician stated in a letter to him this month, after he had completed a physical exam.
However, the doctor did not say anything about Biden’s mental abilities or that he had conducted any tests to measure his mental cognition.
This was evident because Dr. Thomas Wisniewski (director of cognitive neurology at NYU Langone Medical Center) told the New York Times that every 80 year old should have basic mental cognition testing as part of their physical examinations.
