To get a sense of just how bad of a job President Joe Biden is doing right now, all one has to do is tune into CNN, where hosts and guests are becoming increasingly critical of the 46th president, even going as far as echoing concerns from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
According to the Daily Caller, CNN OutFront host Erin Burnett pressed co-host Van Jones on President Biden’s mental stamina, and his outlook for 2024 — concerns that Carlson has raised for well over a year.
Burnett pointed to a recent bombshell by one of the Democratic Party’s card-carrying members, David Axelrod, who recently strongly suggested that Biden call it quits after one term.
“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” Axelrod said, as noted by Burnett.
Questions are raised
Burnett then played a clip from CNN’s Don Lemon, during which he asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre whether or not Biden has the mental stamina for another term — a question that threw Jean-Pierre for a total loop.
Other traditionally friendly media outlets to the Biden administration — or Democrats in general — have also began to shift the narrative on the president as he continues to set all the worst records, including record-low approval numbers.
Many, from both sides of the political aisle, increasingly believe that Biden’s age has finally caught up with him, and that a run in 2024 is simply unrealistic, politics aside.
“If he’s ready to go, people in this party are ready to back him up”

Van Jones’ take
When asked his thoughts on the most recent criticism and concerns from the Dem Party, Jones finally admitted that Biden is certainly having issues.
“I think everybody is looking very closely now. When Biden does well, he does really well. That gun speech he gave, he was perfect. It was powerful. When he does badly, when he stumbles, you get nervous,” Jones told Burnett.
He added: “You wonder, is it just his stutter? Is he tired? Or is something else there?”
Of course, Biden himself, and his top advisers, will all insist that he’s running again, as if the truth came out, it would cause another level of panic and uncertainty if the U.S. president admitted he was not up for the job.
