First lady Jill Biden laughed off questions about her husband’s mental fitness for office during a CBS News interview that aired on Sunday morning.

When asked if President Joe Biden’s plummeting poll numbers bothered her, Jill Biden responded, “You know, I look at it a little differently.”

“During the campaign, Joe made certain promises, things that he would do,” she said. “And we were going through a pandemic, which no one could have anticipated. So he did come in and rescue America with the American Rescue Plan. And millions of families got money, because they were desperate. We have vaccines for kids, ages five and up. And now with the infrastructure plan, we’re going to have better roads and better buildings that don’t have asbestos, better drinking water.”

“So, do you figure once the public kind of comprehends this, things will turn around?” host Rita Braver asked.

“I do,” Jill Biden responded. “I do.”

“And one more question on that on the polls, because there have been some recent polls that show that quite a few Americans have some questions about the President’s current mental fitness,” Braver said. “As somebody who spends, I can see you’re shaking your head.”

“Yes,” Jill Biden responded.

“So what’s your response to that?” Braver asked.

“I think that’s ridiculous,” Jill Biden responded.

Jill Biden’s “ridiculous” line is the same response that she had when she was asked over a year ago about her husband’s mental fitness for office.

“The president’s campaign this week released an ad just really attacking your husband’s cognitive abilities, suggesting that he’s lost a step or two in the last few years,” NBC News host Savannah Guthrie said. “As far as you’re concerned, is that a fair attack? Is that something that should be debated as part of the campaign?”

“No. No. It’s ridiculous,” Jill Biden responded. “I mean Joe’s on the phone every single minute of the day talking to governors who are calling him and Nancy Pelosi. He’s on the Zoom. He’s doing fundraisers. He’s doing briefings. I mean he doesn’t stop from 9 in the morning till 11 at night. So, that, you know, that’s ridiculous.”

TRANSCRIPT:

RITA BRAVER, CBS NEWS: You’ve seen the President’s poll numbers drop. Does that bother you?

JILL BIDEN, FIRST LADY: You know, I look at it a little differently. During the campaign, Joe made certain promises, things that he would do. And we were going through a pandemic, which no one could have anticipated. So he did come in and rescue America with the American Rescue Plan. And millions of families got money, because they were desperate. We have vaccines for kids, ages five and up. And now with the infrastructure plan, we’re going to have better roads and better buildings that don’t have asbestos, better drinking water.

BRAVER: So, do you figure once the public kind of comprehends this, things will turn around?

BIDEN: I do. I do.

BRAVER: And one more question on that on the polls, because there have been some recent polls that show that quite a few Americans have some questions about the President’s current mental fitness. As somebody who spends, I can see you’re shaking your head.

BIDEN: Yes.

BRAVER: So what’s your response to that?

BIDEN: I think that’s ridiculous.
