James Carville says 'age issue is choking' Biden, tells him to 'turn around' Trump

Democratic strategist James Carville noted Monday that President Joe Biden's age has been a major issue for him and that he should highlight the small age difference between him and former President Donald Trump.

Biden's age has been a major concern for voters, and he has reportedly been adjusting his walking routine on Marine One and received an escort of aides to mitigate the problem. Carville on “Inside with Jen Psaki” said Biden should mention the slight age difference between the two men and accuse Trump of stealing and concealing his medical records.


“The age issue is choking him,” Carville said. “And he has to say he's only four years older than Trump. And Trump had his medical records stolen from his internist's office in January 2017. So I've released all my medical records. Why don't you release the records stolen from your intern? I mean he needs to turn this around and stop complaining because the Times covers his age and the polls are so good. That's a waste of time. Don't do that.”

“Talk about how you're going to change people's lives and make them better, and how you're building a record to build,” Carville continued. “And you understand the cost of living and you understand what families are going through. High insurance rates. It's for pedestrians, but it's what wins the elections.”

Most voters, including Democrats, have expressed concern about the 81-year-old president's age and physical condition, according to a Pew survey poll in April it found that 65% of respondents have “little or no confidence” in this Biden has the physical or mental ability to be president and only 36% believe the same of Trump.

Trump, who is 77, posted a health message in November report from his doctor stated that he was in “excellent” condition and had lost a few pounds by improving his diet and “daily physical activity”, seconds in the New York Times. Trump's doctor said the former president's bodyguard in February 2017 came to his office and took all of Trump's medical records. seconds on NBC News.

Then-White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was “standard operating procedure for a new president,” according to NBC. “These records were being transferred to the White House Medical Unit, as requested.”

Comedian Bill Maher on Monday said during an appearance on “Gutfeld!” from Fox News. that Trump doesn't “present as old” but Biden does, despite the two being close in age. “It's like KISS. You put on the wig and the face paint and it's 1976 all over again,” Maher said.
