Jean-Pierre Laughs Off Question About Biden’s Physical, Mental Well-Being, ‘I Can’t Even Keep Up With Him’
Joe Biden is 79 years old, making him the oldest person in US history elected to the White House. He routinely makes indefensible blunders, yet the corporate press will stop at nothing to defend the progressive President.
When asked about Biden’s physical and mental well-being, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre merely laughed off the question during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon – WATCH:
DON LEMON: "Does the president has the stamina, physically and mentally, do you think to continue on even after 2024?"

“Does the president have the stamina, physically and mentally, do you think to continue on even after 2024?” Lemon asked.
“Don, you’re asking me this question,” a visibly stunned Jean-Pierre exclaimed. “Oh my gosh. He’s the president of the United States! You know, he — I can’t even keep up with him.”
“We just got back from New Mexico. We just got back from California. Uh, that is — I, I, that is — that is not a question that we should be even asking. Just look at the work that he does. Just look at how he’s delivering for the American public,” she added.
Lemon’s questioning comes at a time when many outlets – including liberal ones – are wondering who will lead the Democrat Presidential ticket in 2024.
Abysmal approval ratings aside, “many Democratic lawmakers and party officials are venting their frustrations with President Biden’s struggle to advance the bulk of his agenda” according to The New York Times.
Lawmakers and party officials are “doubting [Biden’s] ability to rescue the party from a predicted midterm trouncing and increasingly viewing him as an anchor that should be cut loose in 2024,” the outlet continued.
Per the piece by The New York Times, Democrat officials alongside “disappointed voters” are becoming increasingly pessimistic about Biden’s ability to hold on to power. The perils of his liberal policies are visible virtually everywhere, stretching from the highest median rent ever recorded to the skyrocketing inflation that is plaguing the average American family.
Jean-Pierre was quick to dismiss The New York Times piece during her interview with Lemon. “Look, what, that — that — that article that we’re talking about is hearsay, it’s salacious, that’s not what we care about,” she proclaimed. “We care about how we are going to deliver for the American people. How are we going to make their lives better? That’s what the president talks about. That is his focus. And that’s where we’ll continue to focus on.”
The White House press secretary’s comments come at a time when Americans have yet to see any relief from the Biden administration. One where families are frustrated with the various “nothing new” reports routinely provided by the country’s failing leadership.
