A major media anchor expressed his opinion on President Joe Biden’s energy, especially at the end of a week that included the aftermath of the Hamas attack on Israel. Scott Pelley, host of ‘60 Minutes,’ said that the president was “tired.”
Pelley spoke to the president last week, expressing concern about his energy.
“As we spoke to the president, his Secretary of State was in Israel; his Defense Secretary was at a NATO meeting on Ukraine,” he said. “America’s oldest president seemed tired from directing all of this.”
“It had been a rough week and we could see it on him,” the host said.
Pelley’s concerns about the president’s energy appear to correlate with wider concerns regarding the president’s health and ability to serve effectively.
At 80, Biden is the oldest American president in history. Should he be elected to a second term in 2024, he would exit the White House at 86 years old.

The general public appears concerned about Biden’s ability to serve another term, as well. According to an August Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, a significant majority believe that Biden does not have the health to serve effectively in a second term.
According to the poll result, 77% of Americans, including 69% of Democrats, believe that Biden is “too old” to serve another four years. This is further supported by an overwhelming 89% of Republicans.
A full 74% of independents said that Biden was too old for another term.
Far fewer adults expressed the same concern about Biden’s possible opponent, former President Donald Trump.
The recent poll result corresponds with a number of other recent polls that show deep reservations about Biden’s health. This past weekend, the president had to be ushered off of the stage by his wife Jill, where he appeared to be confused.
Several days earlier, he almost fell up a flight of stairs when approaching a podium in Philadelphia.
The president also fell on stage at the graduation of the U.S. Air Force Academy earlier this year.
