Left-Wing Media Turns On Biden Over Age Issues

The president’s answers to inquiries on his age and mental competence have drawn criticism from the left-wing media.

The president was characterized in a report by Special Counsel Robert Hur as an old man with a poor memory. After initially playing into the “old man” trope (by reacting angrily with an almost “get off my lawn” indignation), Biden’s handlers had him shrug off the criticism, and he laughed and made self-effacing quips about his memory. It hasn’t worked.

The New York Times and other left-leaning media sources have questioned Joe Biden’s age in reaction to Hur’s article and panned the president’s reactions.

Currently, Biden is the longest-serving president in United States history, at 81 years of age. Biden will be 82 years old on inauguration day 2025 and 86 years old when his second term concludes if he is re-elected in November.

Despite concluding that criminal charges were not justified in light of the investigation into Biden’s handling of confidential data, the special counsel did as much damage, politically, as a recommendation for criminal charges. Those he could beat. Biden can’t beat the charges of being old and unfit to be the Commander-In-Chief. Aging is not an issue that gets better with time.

Hur’s report stated that the president did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died. The president’s reaction was fury during a subsequent news conference on February 8.

Opinion articles on Joe Biden’s age have been published in The Atlantic, The New Republic, and The New York Times. Biden was branded as “selfish” by the New Republic, which was banking on harmful divisiveness to propel the Biden-Harris ticket to victory.

According to Damon Linker, a senior professor in political science at the University of Pennsylvania, Democrats need to choose a new presidential candidate immediately because Biden is prioritizing his interests above the nation’s welfare.

The special counsel’s report has been said to have sown seeds of doubt in voters’ minds in the half-dozen swing states that will decide the next president.
