President Biden has devised a new strategy to counter claims of being too old for another term, emphasizing that, unlike his predecessor, he can remember his wife’s name. In an effort to address concerns about his age, President Biden made an appearance on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on NBC, where he engaged in a playful but pointed interview. Meyers, jokingly suggesting that classified information indicated the president was 81, prompted Biden to respond in kind, asking who revealed such information.

During the interview, Biden took a jab at former President Donald J. Trump, highlighting a video where Trump appeared to forget his wife’s name. The president remarked, “He’s about as old as I am, but he can’t remember his wife’s name.” However, Biden shifted to a more serious tone, emphasizing that the contest should focus on the candidates’ ideas rather than their age.

President Biden has been on the defensive regarding his memory, particularly after a special counsel’s report mentioned his “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” characterization. The report cited instances where Biden struggled to recall key dates during an interview. Trump, too, has faced moments of confusion, including mixing up names and making inaccurate statements.

During the interview with Seth Meyers, a clip was played where Trump seemingly forgot Melania Trump’s name during a speech. However, it was clarified that Trump was addressing someone else named Mercedes Schlapp, taken out of context by critics.

Despite the light-hearted banter, Biden addressed more substantive issues, including criticism of his memory, his 2024 agenda, and a meme circulated online by his aides. The interview aimed to engage with a crucial audience, appealing to younger voters, a demographic that played a pivotal role in Biden’s victory in 2020.
