Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki got destroyed by Fox News host Dana Perino after she commented on former President Donald Trump’s age.

“Just throwing out there. For everyone who is arguing the reason @POTUS shouldn’t run again is because of his age…you know Donald Trump is 76 right?” the former White House Press Secretary said in a tweet the day before Trump announced he would campaign for president again.

“There’s also a potential announcement tonight from President Trump. We have here a tweet from Jen Psaki regarding Biden versus Trump,” the host said in response.

“And she said, ‘Just throwing out there for everyone who was arguing the reason POTUS shouldn’t run again is because of his age. You know, Trump is 76 right?’

“Um. I don’t know if — Everybody ages at a different rate. So that, we can maybe set that aside,” she said.

Psaki was brutally criticized for her tweet by other Twitter users.

“Narrator: it’s not his age, that’s just the acceptable way to put it,” Joey Jones said.

“Age is just a number for Trump. For Joe Biden, age is telling,” another Twitter user said.

“Ageism is real. And wrong,” another said.

There is also the matter of a person showing their age.

Many people believe that President Joe Biden has been showing signs of cognitive decline for some time and he did not do himself any favors in dispelling those rumors recently.

Biden again caused a stir online during his trip to Bali, Indonesia, for the G20 conference earlier this week. According to photos captured by Getty Images, Biden was again seen at one point using what appear to be so-called “cheat sheets” — sets of instructions telling him what to say, and when, as well as what to do next.

Per the Western Journal, the sheets read:

–YOU, President Widodo [Indonesia], and Prime Minister Kishida [Cambodia] will take a photo directly before the event starts.

–YOU will sit at the center, front tables alongside President Widodo and President von der Leyen [President of the EU].

–Photos will be taken of the leaders seated around the table.

–President Widodo delivers remarks (5 minutes) and introduces YOU.

–YOU will deliver opening remarks (5 minutes), then introduce President von der Leyen.

One online user called it the “Daily Joe Moment.”

Biden turned heads in September 2021 when he toured damage in Louisiana caused by Hurricane Ida and was also photographed with what appeared to be cheat sheets, the New York Post reported.

“Biden walked to the Marine One helicopter with a cheat sheet of officials’ names and photos, including those of Cantrell and Jefferson Parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng sticking out of his pants pocket. He also appeared to have a script in his pocket,” The Post said.

The sighting raised new questions then about his cognitive abilities.

Biden was absolutely hammered for it, Fox News reported.

“Can Joe Biden do anything without a cheat sheet? He couldn’t give a speech on Afghanistan after 5 PM,” Lisa Boothe, a Fox News contributor, said at the time. “It’s abundantly clear he’s not operating on full cylinders. He should be in retirement, not leading a country. It’s time we start talking about it more. Everyone sees it.”

“President Trump certainly never carried a ‘cheat sheet’ with him,” Kayleigh McEnany, who served as President Donald Trump’s press secretary, said. “As any good staff would, we often provided him with a pocket card before he left the plane, but he usually just left it on Air Force 1 and definitely never relied on it to remember the names of those he was meeting on the tarmac.”

“Given his track record of hiding in his basement during the presidential election, it’s not surprising that President Biden depends on cheat sheets,” Deneen Borelli, another Fox News contributor, said. “Biden is lost and fumbles badly without notes and the teleprompter. It’s fundamentally dangerous the U.S. has such a weak and incompetent president. The world is watching including our adversaries.

“Then-candidate Biden wasn’t challenged by the media and when interviewed was given softball questions. Now America knows why his handlers want him to have limited media access because he’s incapable of sensible communication,” he said.
