Watch: Joe Biden Accidentally Insults Nancy Pelosi, Brings Major 2024 Issue to Forefront in One Fell Swoop

RedState reported Monday on how twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, 75, went on record as saying at the “Financial Times Weekend” festival that President Joe Biden’s age (80) absolutely should be something voters take into consideration going into the 2024 presidential campaign season.


While Clinton’s comments had people wondering whether she was contemplating throwing her hat into the ring for a third time – or perhaps I should say a “reelection” campaign since she insists with keeping on with the nonsense about how she “never lost” to former President Donald Trump in 2016, Biden himself preceded her by accidentally bringing the issue to the forefront of his campaign with remarks he made during an EMILY’s List gala at Washington, D.C.’s “Anthem” auditorium last Tuesday.

The “We Are EMILY” fundraising event was held in part to honor former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for all of her work advancing so-called “abortion rights.”

But as Joe Biden took to the stage to introduce his longtime Democratic colleague Pelosi, it didn’t take long for him to devolve into his usual incoherency, insulting her in the process while inadvertently reminding people that his age is a big concern to voters headed into 2024:

Biden: Nancy Pelosi is going to go down in history as one of the most consequential speakers in the history of the United States — (applause) — not merely because she’s a woman — because she’s so incredible. She’s such a —

Audience Member: Woo!

Biden: No, no — with Nancy leading the way, you never had to worry about whether the bill would pass. If she said she had the votes, she had the votes every time. (Applause.)

And she had to vote so many lifechanging pieces of legislation. She helped rescue the economy in the Great Depression…



For the record, the Great Depression timeframe was 1929-1941. Pelosi, who at 83 is older than Biden, was born in 1940. I’m pretty sure a one-year-old Pelosi had nothing to do with rescuing Americans during the latter part of the Great Depression, but maybe that’s just me. Perhaps he thinks Pelosi is older than she actually is. Who knows?

She wasn’t shown in the clip, but no doubt that feeling of cringe bubbled up inside her as she struggled to maintain her composure at the unintentional swipe, one of many Biden has made over his decades of service as a career politician in D.C.

As I’ve said before, though the Biden team including Biden himself are already spinning like tops to try and make questions about his age and mental fitness to lead seem like non-starters, it very much is on the minds of voters, as poll after poll has indicated.

And clips like this don’t help.

People can see right through the spin. And the more the Biden White House and his various surrogates try to push the false narrative that Biden can run circles around them the more they’re gonna realize they’re being gaslit – and not just on this issue but on those of much greater import.


Considering a majority of Americans have indicated in polls that they have concerns about Biden’s mental fitness to preside over the country, the White House’s/Biden campaign’s continual obscene posturing on this issue (“look at the results!” they say, as though that will help) is likely to come back and haunt him at a most inconvenient time in his campaign, and for good reason.

After all, as I’ve also said before, there’s only so much sunshine one can blow up someone else’s backside before the recipient decides enough is enough.
