Jill Biden Rejects ‘Ridiculous’ Concerns Over President’s Mental Fitness
Jill Biden rejected concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental fitness, calling them “ridiculous.”
During a sit-down interview for CBS Sunday Morning, Rita Braver asked the first lady about recent polls that show “quite a few Americans have some questions about the president’s current mental fitness.”
“I think that’s ridiculous,” Biden said.
Last month, a Morning Consult/Politico survey asked respondents if they agreed or disagreed that the president “is mentally fit.” Only 46 percent of participants agreed, while 48 percent disagreed.
Later in the interview, Biden opened up about her role as first lady and its difficulties.
“It’s a little harder than I imagined,” Biden, 70, said.
“It’s not like a job that you do; it’s a lifestyle that you live. And it’s not something you leave at 5:00 or at 3:00, and it’s 24 hours a day.”
