Dem Front Runner Biden has more than just Trump to contend with, he has to deal with the many issues that come with aging. Brit Hume appeared on “The Candidates” with Brett Baier. It’s a political podcast. During the podcast, Hume came down on Biden claiming he was too old for the job and therefore will not a frontrunner for long.
“I like Biden on a personal basis, but I think he is a walking time-bomb,” Hume said. “I think his age is an issue, I’m the same age as he is, my age is an issue, I think his is too… the filters don’t work as well, the memory isn’t as sharp.
“You might blurt out things as he did the other day when he said China is no competitor of ours. Now, I can kind of get where he was coming from on that, meaning you know we are the best and nobody can beat us. But that’s not how it came out and that is not how he said it.
“He is gaffe-prone and always has been and I don’t think that he’s less-so now. He’s got a lot of strengths, he’s got a huge body of sympathetic support in the party, and he’ll be able to raise money. He’ll be in this, but it’s a high-wire act and I’m not sure he can make it.”
Hume is not wrong Biden originally was concerned that he might be too old for the job.
“If I were to run I think they would judge me on my vitality. Can I still run up the steps of Airforce 2? Am I still in good shape? Do I have all my faculties? Am I energetic? I think it is totally legitimate for people to ask those questions.” Biden said expressing his concerns over his vitality.”
Maybe he just forgot he said this. No need to worry if Biden can make it past the primaries he will have to face Trump and we all know how that will turn out.
