First lady Jill Biden called proposals to administer mental competency tests to elected officials over the age of 75 “ridiculous,” and claimed 30-year-olds cannot ride the train and meet people like her husband does.
“Nikki Haley, one of the Republican candidates, is calling for mental competency tests for those politicians over the age of 75, what do you think about that?” Jill Biden was asked during an interview with CNN.
“It’s ridiculous,” the 71-year-old replied. “We would never even discuss something like that.”
“How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy?” Jill Biden said. “So, look at the man. Look what he’s doing. Look what he continues to do each and every day.”
One of the things Biden – who would be 82 on inauguration day if reelected in 2024 – has continued to do is trip on the Air Force One boarding stairs.
Biden’s “historic” trip to Ukraine and Eastern Europe culminated with him falling down on the Air Force One stairs, evoking comparisons to his infamous tumble on the same staircase in 2021.
The incident occurred in Poland last month as Biden was embarking on the presidential aircraft at Warsaw Chopin Airport.
Nearing the top of the staircase, the octogenerian commander-in-chief stumbled, and hurtled foward, throwing out his hands to break his fall on the steps.
The incident was captured by multiple camera angles and was posted to social media.
In March 2019, Biden infamously fell down multiple times while ascending the Air Force one stairs at Joint Base Andrews. The White House blamed the incident on strong winds.
Biden, 80, fell off his bicycle in June while riding near his Delaware home with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and other riders as media caught the event on camera.
