CNN’s Don Lemon Asks If Biden Has Physical, Mental Stamina To Run In 2024

CNN’s Don Lemon, a long-time cheerleader for President Biden and other Democrats, asked the White House press secretary on Monday night whether Biden has the “stamina, physically and mentally” to run for a second term in 2024. Biden, now 79, would be 82 on Inauguration Day 2025.

She didn’t take the question well. “Don! You’re asking me this question! Oh my gosh, he’s the president of the United States! You know, he — I can’t even keep up with him,” Karine Jean-Pierre declared. “We just got back from New Mexico.

We just got back from California. Uh, that is — I, I, that is — that is not a question that we should be even asking. Just look at the work that he does. Just look at how he’s delivering for the American public.”

Lemon’s question comes after a slew of reports — even from the liberal mainstream media — that says Democrats are mulling replacing Biden at the top of the ticket in 2024..

“Many Democratic lawmakers and party officials are venting their frustrations with President Biden’s struggle to advance the bulk of his agenda, doubting his ability to rescue the party from a predicted midterm trouncing and increasingly viewing him as an anchor that should be cut loose in 2024,” according to a recent piece by The New York Times.

The Times report cited “nearly 50 Democratic officials” and “disappointed voters” who are “alarmed about Republicans’ rising strength and extraordinarily pessimistic about an immediate path forward” under the flagging Biden administration.
