Biden Jokes About Trump At Correspondents’ Dinner

At what could be his final White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner as president, Biden addressed critiques about his age while he campaigns for another term. He humorously remarked, “The 2024 election is in full swing, and yes, age is an issue. I’m a grown man running against a six-year-old,” eliciting laughter from the audience.

Biden expressed his vitality by sharing his extensive campaign travels across key states like Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina, joking about his success in the original 13 colonies.

The President didn’t shy away from taking humorous jabs at former President Trump, his likely opponent in the upcoming election, noting, “Age is the only thing we have in common. My vice president actually endorses me,” referencing Vice President Kamala Harris’ support contrasted with former Vice President Mike Pence’s lack of endorsement for Trump.

Biden’s tone shifted as he discussed the threats he perceives from Trump to democracy, citing Trump’s remarks about desiring dictatorial powers and framing himself as a figure of revenge and retribution for his supporters.

He emphasized the seriousness of the situation, reminding the audience of the significance of the January 6 events and urging them to focus on the stakes of the election beyond mere polling numbers.

While discussing his and Trump’s confirmed nominations for their parties, Biden pointed out Trump’s absence from the Correspondents’ dinner during his presidency and his ongoing legal challenges, including a trial related to a payment to Stormy Daniels. Biden quipped about Trump’s recent difficulties, playing on words with “stormy weather.”

The evening also featured comedian Colin Jost, who roasted various political figures, providing light-hearted moments amid serious political and international tensions.

Outside the event, there were protests about the media’s coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict and the U.S. administration’s response, which Biden did not directly address in his speech. The ongoing conflict has become a challenging issue for Biden as he seeks re-election, with protests and opposition evident even within his party.

Biden concluded by reiterating his commitment to securing the release of American journalists detained abroad, demonstrating his administration’s focus on significant foreign policy and human rights issues.
