CNN’s Lemon stuns Jean-Pierre with ‘stamina’ question about Biden

Only those who would be politically hurt by admitting that President Joe Biden isn’t exactly as sharp as he was even a few years ago are staying awkwardly quiet about the issue.

The situation has become so genuinely painfully obvious to watch unfold that even Biden’s longtime friends in the mainstream media are now questioning his spokespeople about his realistic viability of making a second run for office in 2024, including one especially surprising Democratic media asset.

CNN’s Don Lemon made headlines after taking Karine Jean-Pierre, the woefully unqualified White House press secretary who replaced Jen Psaki, to task over the issue, asking with a straight face whether or not Biden has the physical and mental energy to mount another presidential run — a task that’s hard on a candidate even if they aren’t cognitively impaired.

“Does the president have the stamina, physically and mentally, do you think to continue on even after 2024?” Lemon asked.

The press secretary, in one of the most awkward moments in cable news history, was thrown for a loop, acting genuinely shocked that Lemon, a White House ally, would pose such a question.

“Don, you’re asking me this question,” a shocked Jean-Pierre exclaimed. “Oh my gosh. He’s the president of the United States.”

“That is not a question that we should be even asking,” she added. “Just look at the work he does. And look how he’s delivering for the American public.”

In one of the cheesiest, dumbest counters to Lemon’s question that she could have possibly come up with, Jean-Pierre than made it sound as if Biden is a marathon runner, suggesting that he’s so sharp and fast that even she, at 47 years old, can’t keep up with him. How ridiculous.
