Joe Biden, 80, asks reporters if they think he needs a medical

President Joe Biden mocked reporters Thursday for asking about an upcoming physical examination of his health.

“Do you think I need it?” asked the 80-year-old president wryly.

The president opened up about his physique after meeting with firefighters during his long Thanksgiving vacation on Nantucket Island.

He revealed that he has already completed part of his physical exam and will do the rest before the end of the year.

Last year, the president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, explained Biden’s frequent coughing and his “noticeably stiffer and less fluid walk” after performing a comprehensive medical examination.

The president’s physical health will likely contribute to a discussion he plans to have with his family over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays about running for re-election in 2024, despite doubts about his age.

Biden continues to defy critics of his advanced age, telling them to “watch me” as he continues to be president.

“I don’t think of myself as being as old as I am anymore than stealing,” he said in an interview with 60 minutes in September.

More than two-thirds of Americans in midterm polls said they don’t want Biden to run for re-election.
