The Biden family is in shambles. They’re in the final death throes, and it’s painful to watch.

Now Jill Biden fell flat on her face in this boneheaded defense of Joe

A bingo caller shouted “Union jobs” and “Taking on Big Pharma” for seniors to fill out with crayon cards that also included “Dr. Jill Biden” before the first lady herself arrived to address a crowd of about 250 people Saturday afternoon, attempting to assuage concerns as her husband, 81, faces increasing public scrutiny over his mental acuity.

Just hours after the first lady’s event, President Biden undercut her message with his third viral moment in a week, appearing to freeze up at a celebrity-driven Los Angeles fundraiser before being taken off stage by former President Barack Obama.

“This nana is proud to stand here with all of you to get to work to re-elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Jill stated in front of the “Seniors for Biden-Harris” banner.

In her brief address, Biden focused on Social Security and Medicare.

“Donald Trump supported ending Medicare as we know it,” she said.

“He wants to cut Social Security to give more tax breaks to his billionaire friends,” she continued. “Make no mistake: Donald Trump is dangerous.”

The 73-year-old first lady attempted to portray her husband’s age positively while mocking his Republican opponent, who is 78.

“Joe and the other guy are essentially the same age so let’s not be fooled,” she said.

“Biden is a healthy, wise, 81-year-old ready to work every day to make our future better,” she continued, echoing a line she used with Nevada voters the day before after the president made headlines for awkward behavior at the G7 summit and freezing at a Juneteenth celebration, as The New York Post reported.

The key question is whether the president can overcome aging worries, with only roughly 30% of registered voters believing he has the “mental and cognitive health to serve” as commander in chief, according to a CBS News poll.

Trump leads Biden in the poll with 50%, but 23% believe “neither of them” is mentally ready to govern.

The first lady’s visit was part of the Biden campaign’s effort to reach out to the older demographic, which recent national polls show is becoming increasingly competitive between current and former presidents.

A May Quinnipiac University survey found Biden leading Trump 55% to 43% among voters 65 and older who were inclined toward either candidate.

In Arizona, a recent American Association for Retired Persons poll found Trump with 52% to Biden’s 43% among voters 50 and older.

The New York Post spoke with event attendees who were more interested in preventing the former president from retaking office than in re-electing Biden.

For his part, Trump hosted a town hall with hundreds of supporters in north Phoenix, focusing mostly on Biden’s immigration and economic policies.

It was his first event in the Grand Canyon State since the midterm elections, and his first overall since his conviction in the Stormy Daniels hush-money case, according to The Post.
