On Sunday, President Joe Biden said that people who do not believe that he is mentally fit to be president should just watch him because “the proof of the pudding is in the eating.”
Biden made the comments during an interview with CBS News host Scott Pelley.
“Mr. President, you are the oldest president ever,” Pelley said. “Which leads to my next question. You are more aware of this than anyone. Some people ask whether you are fit for the job. And when you hear that, I wonder what you think.”
“Watch me. And ma– honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me,” Biden responded. “If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then– then, you know, that’s one thing. It’s another thing, you just watch and– and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I’m doing. I– I think that– you know– I don’t– when I sit down with our NATO allies and keep ’em together, I don’t have ’em saying, ‘Wait a minute, w– how– how old are you? What are you– what say?’”
“You know, I mean, it’s a matter of, you know, that old expression: The proof of the pudding’s in the eating,” Biden continued. “I mean, I– I– I respect the fact that people would say, you know, ‘You’re old.’ And– but I think it relates to h– how much energy you have, and whether or not the job you’re doing is one consistent with what any person of any age would be able to do.”
Notably, questions around Biden’s mental fitness have been driven by his speech difficulties and other behaviors, including managing to fall off his bike while stationary in June.

Former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who served in the role under the Obama and Trump administrations, explained that Biden’s “bizarre behaviors” have continued to raise questions from the American people on Biden’s mental fitness.
Jackson made the comments to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo when he was asked to assess “the mental capacity of President Biden.”
“You know, it’s continued to get worse since he was candidate Joe Biden,” Jackson said. “When I first started talking about this, the American people have continued to have questions about a lot of his bizarre behaviors, this holding hands thing is one of them, the way he makes up stories, and he just repeatedly tells the stories that everyone has documented are not true, that happens pretty frequently. He has these emotional outbursts. He shuffles when he walks. He slurs his speech. He always looks frail and fragile. I just think it’s continued to get worse and worse.”
“And I think that now the Democrats and the mainstream media now are starting to say, ‘we can’t ignore this a whole lot longer,’” Jackson continued. “At some point or another, we’re going to have to address this, we’re going to have to explain to the American people what’s going on, you know, I have to ask them multiple times to see his complete medical record for the American people to see it, for him to do cognitive tests.”
