On Wednesday, Morning Joe anchor Mika Brzezinski reportedly attacked President Joe Biden’s team, blaming their poor decision-making for his senior moments.
Joe Scarborough, the co-host, said that Biden should address age-related issues in the same manner as Ronald Reagan previously did before Brzezinski pounced on Biden’s aides.
“Yeah, I think his staff needs to own his age. I’m just gonna be honest, I don’t think they do a good job helping out the president and I’m not talking about it like, I’m just saying if you are managing a president’s schedule, and you are managing a president getting on stage and getting off stage and getting on planes and getting off planes, and yes, he’s 80!” Brzezinsky said.
“You need to be there for him! And you need to make a pathway and you sure as hell better make sure he doesn’t fall on a sandbag! And I blame the staff for that. I mean these are the things that are gonna hurt him, these are things that are gonna be played on a loop, ok? Let him do his job, let him do his speeches, let him work on policy, let him do his connections in Congress unlike any president that we’ve seen I don’t know, since Clinton.” she continued.
“So do a better job, because you can’t have these video images of the president tripping, or the president like going the wrong way. It’s not going to work in this presidency because his age is going to be a factor. His age is going to be a factor and it’s your job to ensure he gets from one place to another. He can handle the presidency, you have to handle his schedule and where he goes.” she concluded.
