Jill Biden counters attacks on Joe’s age, Hunter’s trials

First lady Jill Biden defended attacks against her family in an interview on MSNBC aired Thursday as President Joe Biden’s campaign faces scrutiny in his fight to win reelection.

The president has received criticism over his age — he’s currently 81 and would be 86 by the end of a second term.

Jill Biden described her husband’s age as an “asset” to his presidency, citing his time in politics and relationships with other world leaders.

“I see his vigor, I see his energy, I see his passion every single day,” Jill Biden told “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski in the prerecorded interview. “He has wisdom, he has experience.”

Republican presidential hopefuls have targeted Joe Biden over his age. Former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley launched a direct attack in a December campaign ad, declaring: “I’ll just say it: Biden’s too old.”

Former President Donald Trump has often referred to Biden as “Sleepy Joe” in speeches, although at 77, he’s only three and a half years younger.

Members of the GOP have also frequently brought up Hunter Biden’s legal woes in their strikes against his father.

The younger Biden made a surprise appearance on Capitol Hill Wednesday in front of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, who gathered for two separate votes to hold him in contempt of Congress for going against a subpoena that would require him to sit for a closed-door interview.

“I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel,” Jill Biden said. “I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction. I love my son.”
