Back in 2008, Democrats and their media allies constantly went after John McCain for his age.
They insisted that he was too old to be president.
Now the liberal site Politico is running interference for Biden over his age.
Take a look at this:
We talked to experts on aging about the 2020 field. Here’s what they told us.
Joe Biden was lying on the operating table and about to get surgery for his second brain aneurysm when the doctor told him he might not recover.
“What’s the most likely thing that will happen if I live?” Biden asked him. “Well,” the doctor replied, “the side of the brain that the first aneurysm is on controls your ability to speak.”
That’s when the gaffe-prone Biden thought to himself: “Why in the hell didn’t they tell me this before the ’88 campaign?’ It could’ve saved us all a lot of trouble, you know what I mean?”
That joke, which Biden told in a speech in 2013, has taken on new relevance now that he’s on the campaign trail for president again and facing questions about his gaffes. Though Biden has a longstanding reputation for verbal flubs, they’re now inextricably linked to the 76-year-old’s age.
But concerns about Biden’s age and mental fitness are likely overblown, according to experts on aging and the brain, as well as actuarial tables used by the insurance industry to estimate the health and longevity of customers…
“He is every bit as sharp as he was 31 years ago. I haven’t seen any change,” Kassell said. “I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had. There was no damage whatsoever.”
Biden’s wife is also sticking up for him, but she’s not doing him any favors.
Jill Biden’s Attempt to Campaign For Her Husband Backfires
Campaign trail spouses want to support their husband or wife who’s running for higher office, but sometimes they do more harm than good. The latest example of this is Jill Biden’s attempt to explain why voters should choose her husband in the 2020 presidential election.
She admitted on Monday in front of a group of New Hampshire teachers that some of his opponents may have better ideas, but in the end it’s all about electability, and Biden’s got it. Meaning, you may have to “swallow a little bit” and vote for him.

Dr. Jill Biden urges voters to consider her husband's electability, saying: "your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election."

Is Biden even going to make it through this primary?
