New York Times Raises Concerns About Biden’s Age

This week, Joe Biden officially confirmed his decision to run for president again. This comes after much speculation about whether or not he’d actually seek a second term in the White House.

Biden’s presidency has been marred by one complication after the next. From his botched foreign policy choices to major economic problems, to say the president hasn’t done very well would be an understatement.

Nevertheless, Biden is still on record saying he’s going to run in 2024 and Vice President Kamala Harris will stay on as his running mate. However, there is more attention being directed toward Biden’s age as a possible liability, according to Hot Air.

New York Times Admits the Truth

The New York Times recently called out not just the age of the soon-to-be 81-year-old president, but it also admitted that various behaviors of Biden (which could be age-influenced) are extremely problematic.

The Times not only pointed out Biden’s tendency to dodge the press, but it also conceded that the president is fueling critics who raise concerns about his ability to effectively do the job.

This is eyebrow-raising, especially when one considers that the New York Times is a left-leaning publication with a tendency to sing Biden’s praises.

America Reacts

On Tuesday morning, social media erupted with reactions amid news of Biden officially seeking reelection. Likewise, age was a factor that got repeatedly brought up.

Some Americans stated that having age limits on who can serve as president would be a good idea. Others stressed the importance of letting younger generations take over political leadership in this country.

According to those in the president’s camp, he’s betting on his record in office to ultimately outweigh any public concerns about his age. Though why Biden believes his record is an asset, rather than a liability, is a question many Americans have.
