Rep. Nancy Pelosi criticized Special Counsel Robert Hur’s remarks on President Joe Biden’s mental sharpness, stating that everyone makes mistakes and emphasizing that age is an objective fact.

She contrasted Biden’s occasional mistakes with what she described as former President Trump’s intentional or repeated falsehoods.

Biden’s age “is an objective fact,” Pelosi said. “All relative. He’s younger than I am. So, what do I have to say about his age?”

The President is “very sharp”, Pelosi said. “I think that people do make mistakes. I think his age is one thing that’s an objective fact. His making a mistake from time to time, we all do that. When the former — ex-President, defeated President Trump made a mistake about one thing or another, he would make the same mistake seven times. It wasn’t a slip of the tongue. It was a complete going down a path of something that wasn’t even true, intentionally or otherwise.”

“So, I think, that again, age is an objective fact, as I say, it’s all relative. He’s younger than I am. So, what do I have to say about his age? But he is, again, knowledgeable, wise,” she said.

Pelosi also expressed disappointment in the special counsel’s focus on Biden’s statements about not knowing or remembering, highlighting Trump’s similar statements in depositions before becoming president.

“It’s really sad what the special counsel came out with. He is — he should’ve — you’re a prosecutor, you don’t — it’s a professional thing to do. To start deciding on somebody’s age — do you know that before Trump was President, before he was President, so, now we’re going back about, what, seven years, so he was 70 or 69 at the time, over 1,000 times, he said, I don’t know. I can’t remember. I don’t know? Again, over 1,000 times in depositions.”

She concluded by emphasizing the need to organize rather than agonize over such matters.

“So, people say that in depositions, some. 1,000 times, something’s wrong there, but nonetheless. So, for this report to go into the personal aspects of somebody saying, I don’t know, I don’t remember, when they didn’t really call it out on other people, but anyway, we don’t agonize, we organize,” she said.
