Hillary Clinton admits Biden is 'old' – but urges voters to 'spare democracy from Trump'

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton openly acknowledged President Joe Biden’s age, 81, during a radio segment with host Zerlina Maxwell on Tuesday.

In her statement, Clinton stressed the need for Americans to acknowledge the reality of Biden’s age and vote for him to safeguard democracy from Donald Trump.

During the radio interview, Clinton recounted a recent conversation about Biden’s age, stating: “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.'”

Clinton, 76, continued by comparing Biden to Trump, describing Biden as effective and non-threatening to democracy, while labelling Trump as dangerous and threatening.

She continued: “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’s remarks directly addressed the age factor in the upcoming elections, pointing out that both candidates, Biden and Trump, are in their later years.

She urged voters to consider the implications for democracy and choose wisely between the two.


However, Clinton’s acknowledgement of Biden’s age stands out among Democratic circles.

While some Democrats like Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Sen. Raphael Warnock have expressed confidence in Biden’s abilities, questions about his age persist, especially following a January Department of Justice report suggesting Biden’s memory issues.

Despite the scrutiny, Biden has pushed back against claims of diminished faculties, asserting that his memory remains intact.

As the elections approach, the issue of age continues to be a topic of debate among voters and political analysts alike.
