On Friday, President Biden stated that he is willing to debate former President Donald Trump.

Speaking to radio host Howard Stern, Biden reportedly said, “I am somewhere. I don’t know when. I’m happy to debate him.”

In late February, after special counsel Robert Hur’s report stated that Biden exhibited memory problems, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), a co-chair of Biden’s re-election campaign, responded to the consistent verbal gaffes committed by Biden, saying, “If Joe Biden commits a gaffe, a guy who stuttered all of his childhood, into his adulthood and everybody knows his stuttering is what caused a lot of his speech impediments, and we know that. It has nothing to do with his brain, he stumbles one time and everybody says, ‘He’s too old to be the president.’”

The Hur report stated, “Mr. Biden’s memory was significantly limited, both during his recorded interviews with the ghostwriter in 2017 [with whom he shared classified materials], and in his interview with our office in 2023. We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Biden responded to Hur’s findings in an impromptu press conference during which he insisted that his memory was “fine” and then mixed up world leaders. In the days leading up to the report’s unveiling, Biden made headlines for talking about discussions with European heads of state who had died by the time he said the conversations took place.


In 2020, Trump and Biden were scheduled to have three debates, but the middle one was canceled when Trump contracted COVID-19. Before the first debate, Trump suggested Biden be subjected to a drug test; Biden responded to the request by laughing; his deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, mocked Trump, telling Politico, “Vice President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words. If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it. We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop COVID-19.”
