'VERY REAL ISSUE': Former Obama Aide Talks Biden's Cognitive Decline, 'He Sounds Frail' [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.27.24

During a recent episode of Pod Save America, former Obama aide and chief speechwriter Jon Favreau admitted he thinks Biden’s age and cognitive decline are a “very real issue.”

“If you watch Joe Biden speak, oftentimes he sounds frail and he sounds more frail than he used to, even in 2019 and 2020,” Favreau says. “The voice sounds frail, and he shuffles more because of the arthritis in his back,” Favreau said, adding that the oldest-ever president also appears “mumbly.”

From The New York Post:

He noted polls showing as many as 80% of Americans have expressed concern about the president being 81 — saying it needs to be tackled head-on because voters can see his clear decline.

Even though the president has made an ever-growing series of gaffes and verbal stumbles, he needs to appear on camera even more if he’s to assuage voters’ concerns about his age — with his absence even worse, Favreau warned.

“When world events seem like they are overtaking him and he’s not out there enough forcefully, that’s what’s getting people concerned,” Favreau argued.

Podcast co-host Jon Lovett, another ex-Obama speechwriter, agreed and argued that the Biden campaign should get the president out in public to demonstrate his mental and physical abilities — even if they are concerned that he will make more gaffes.

“I’m sure that going out there means more missteps … more gaffes that start circulating, but if you don’t view Biden being out there as a net positive, then the argument he shouldn’t be running is right.”

Meanwhile, former Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer expressed his own concerns in a separate interview.

“It is a very real issue,” he told Courier.
