( – On Monday, President Biden once again dismissed the concerns regarding his age and even pushed back by arguing that what was truly important was “how old your ideas are.”

In an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” Biden, 81, who is the oldest sitting birthday, said that people needed to “look at the other guy” who was almost as old as him but was unable to even remember the name of his wife. This was a reference to former President Donald Trump, 77, who is widely expected to be the Republican presidential nominee. Last weekend during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump appeared to mix up Melania Trump, his wife, and CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp’s wife Mercedes Schlapp, who had been one of his former aides. 

President Biden has received a lot of criticism and negative media attention relating to his age and mental fitness, especially following special counsel Robert Hur’s report where it was claimed that Biden was a “well-meaning, elderly man with poor memory.”

The president had defended his abilities and memory arguing that people needed to take a look at everything he has achieved since becoming the United States president.

Host Seth Meyers proceeded to also ask Biden about his opinion on the conspiracy theories relating to Taylor Swift, and her boyfriend Travis Kelce, who is the Kansas City Chiefs tight end. He proceeded to ask Biden about the conspiracy between him and Swift, to which Biden joked that this information was “classified.” He then pointed out that in 2020 Swift had endorsed him in the presidential race.
