This is from Monday's press briefing, but we just came across it and had to post something. Why? Because President Joe Biden just turned 81, and his age is a major issue in the 2024 election. We heard First Lady Jill Biden in March ask how many 30-year-olds could keep up with her husband's schedule. "How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train, go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President Zelenskyy?" she asked an interviewer. The answer was, of course, all of them.
And just last week, MSNBC's Mike Barnicle claimed that a 45-year-old couldn't do what Biden does every day. For example, trip up the stairs or get lost on stage.
We've heard Biden can outdo any 30-year-old, any 45-year-old, but Karine Jean-Pierre says she puts Biden's stamina up against "anyone, any day of the week."

Well, he's just proving he can vacation with the best of them. The stamina he demonstrates for vacation mode is off the hook.— Daniel Salem (@DanielS90171419) November 21, 2023
It's not like there are two wars going on right now in which the U.S. is involved.
I've been watching Press Secretary press conferences for something like a half-century. I understand their role. But I've never seen such a shameless liar as this one.— Everett Mayhew, Jr. (@mayhejr) November 21, 2023

This would be comic genius if it weren't utterly tragic.— Munderpool (@munderpool) November 20, 2023
Biden did pardon those turkeys Monday, so he deserves a rest.
