How Biden Can Handle the Age Thing

In This Episode

Joe Biden and the Democratic Party wrestle with concerns about the President’s age in the wake of the Special Counsel’s report calling him “a well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.” Donald Trump pops up at a rally in South Carolina to remind everyone that he’s an elderly man with a poor memory who doesn’t mean well at all. And later, former Representative Mondaire Jones stops by the studio to talk about disfunction in Congress, how control of the House might hinge on New York races like his, and today’s big special election to replace George Santos.
