First lady Jill Biden calls President Joe Biden's record 81 years a ‘asset.’

in Washington, DC — Mrs. Biden has defended her husband's choice to run for reelection, calling his advanced years a "asset," even though President Joe Biden, who is 81 years old and the oldest sitting president in U.S. history, is under constant scrutiny from the public.

"I say his age is an asset," Jill Biden said in response to those who think the Democratic president is too elderly in an interview that was released on Thursday with MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

A wise man he is. "He has experience," she went on to say. He is familiar with all of the world's top leaders. The past is his reality. His knowledge of the past is extensive. His judgments are well-considered. Considering the current state of affairs, he is the most qualified individual to fill this position.

Even though surveys show it's no laughing matter, Joe Biden has tried to diffuse the problem for months using comedy.

A whopping 77% of American adults, including 69% of Democrats, thought Biden was too elderly to be an effective senator for another four years, according to a study conducted in August by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Biden made many jokes about his elderly age during his 81st birthday celebration on November 20, 2023. He said it was "difficult turning 60" and promised he wouldn't be present at a pardoning ceremony for Thanksgiving turkeys, a custom that began 76 years ago: "I wish you knew that I wasn't present—during the initial one."

In contrast to Biden's mockery of his youth, the White House was occupied with bolstering his endurance and denying claims that the matter may affect his support in the upcoming election. There was a statement from press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre saying that the president's age shouldn't be the main point

She made the point that the president's expertise, rather than his age, was the most important factor, citing the passage of several landmark bills that he had pushed through Congress.
