Hillary Clinton urged people to acknowledge President Biden’s age, emphasizing the importance of focusing on defeating Donald Trump to safeguard democracy.

She contrasted Biden’s effectiveness with Trump’s perceived dangers, highlighting the need to prioritize protecting democracy over concerns about age.

“Somebody the other day said to me… ‘Well, but, you know, Joe Biden’s old.’ I said, ‘You know what, Joe Biden is old. Let’s go ahead and accept the reality. Joe Biden is old.’ So we have a contest between one candidate who’s old, but who’s done an effective job and doesn’t threaten our democracy. And we have another candidate who is old, barely makes sense when he talks, is dangerous, and threatens our democracy,” Clinton said.

Clinton deflected concerns about Biden’s mental capacity and redirects attention to Trump’s alleged memory issues.

“So, really, pick between your two old ones and figure out how you’re going to save our democracy. Because no matter where you stand on the political spectrum, you want to maintain freedom, and the rule of law, and protection for people’s fundamental rights, or at least I used to think so,” she said.

She added, “Why would we say, ‘Oh, you know what? Yeah, he’s still getting things done and it’s going to improve my life and the life of my children and grandchildren, but he’s just too old and I don’t like seeing somebody old?'”

“I mean, I think there’s a lot to that, but if you are worried about that, listen to Donald Trump, who is like ranting, making no sense, can’t even remember who he is running against. He constantly talks about Barack Obama being his opponent. Last I checked, that wasn’t what was happening,” Clinton said.

She addressed the challenges of accepting a female president, particularly one who is a woman of color and the daughter of immigrants.

“So, if you’re worried about a person not necessarily knowing what’s going on, I’d worry a lot more about Donald Trump,” she said.

“It’s a challenge for a number of Americans to think of a woman as being president, and then, if the woman is also a woman of color and the daughter of immigrants, you know, that might make it even more of a challenge,” Clinton said. “But I think it’s much more about the fact that Americans are kind of skittish about age.”

A recent poll indicates that a majority of Biden voters from 2020 believe he is too old to be an effective president.
