    Hillary Clinton’s Comments About Biden’s Age Spark Talk of ’24 Run

    Published on

    Former First Lady Hillary Clinton, who has twice unsuccessfully run for president as a Democrat, has reignited speculation about a possible run in 2024 following comments she made about President Joe Biden’s age.

    Clinton’s off-the-radar comments were made during a chatfest at the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C., when she was asked about Biden’s near-fall down some stairs at last week’s G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan.

    “There was that heart-stopping moment when he almost fell over coming down the stairs a day or two ago,” Financial Times editor Edward Luce noted. “He didn’t use a railing, and Jill wasn’t there with him.

    “Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?” he then asked.

    “It’s a concern for anyone. We’ve had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn’t go into heart palpitations,” Clinton responded.

    “But his age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it,” Clinton noted further, in a departure from other Democrats who have defended Biden by pushing back against criticisms regarding his age.

    “But, you know, he has this great saying – and I think he’s right – don’t judge him for running against the Almighty but against the alternative. I am of the camp that I think he’s determined to run; he has a good record that, three years ago, people would not have predicted would have gotten done,” Clinton claimed.

    “He doesn’t get the credit yet for what is happening out in the country in terms of jobs and growth and planning for the future with CHIPS and other stuff,” Clinton noted further. “So, I obviously hope he stays very focused and able to compete in the election because I think he can be re-elected, and that’s what we should all hope for.”

    Biden is the oldest president in the annals of the United States. If he is reelected, he will be 81 years old on the day of his inauguration.

    Biden’s top aides have consistently dismissed concerns about his mental and physical health. Last summer, when former CNN anchor Don Lemon inquired about Vice President Biden’s health, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded, “That is not a question we should even be asking.”

    “Just look at the work he does. And look how he’s delivering for the American public,” she responded.

    In a virtual interview with the Economic Club of Washington last year, now-former White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain praised Biden’s fitness, stating, “He’s certainly in better shape than I am.” Almost every morning before he enters the Oval Office, he exercises vigorously.

    “People see him on the job everyday and then what they see is a person who is fully capable of doing the job, fully vigorous, in great mental and physical health, and taking on the burdens of the office and executing them well,” Klain added.

    “He puts many of us to shame with his energy,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) told Fox News Digital last month on Capitol Hill.
