ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Mocks Idea Of Biden As Dems’ ‘Best Candidate’ For 2024

 ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith doubled down on viral comments he made slamming Democrats for backing President Joe Biden as the party’s “best candidate” for 2024.

During the sports commentator’s appearance on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Tuesday, Smith said he’s “certainly not a liberal” but a registered independent. Smith said he preferred former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who recently entered the race for the 2024 GOP nomination, over Biden or any other Democrat running.

“I’d vote for him [Christie] before I’d vote for any of the Democratic candidates that I’ve seen,” Smith said, before going on to criticize Biden.

“I’m looking at him and I don’t like what I see,” he added. “I’m not impressed with what I see, and I’ve been very concerned with what I’ve seen, and the fact that he’s going to be 82 years of age at election time, if he were to win the election, then he’d be in the White House until he’s 86 years old.”

“I think in the year 2023 it is utterly embarrassing that the liberal side has him as their best candidate,” Smith continued. “What does it say about you when that is the best candidate that you can give the Left? That is ridiculous!”

The ESPN host said it was less of a slam on Biden and more an “indictment against the Democratic Party.” The comments were similar to those Smith made during a recent episode of “The Stephen A. Smith Show” podcast that ended up going viral.


“​​Without trying to engage in any kind of ageism at all, because I don’t believe in it,” Smith said. “There does come a point in time where there are certain jobs you don’t need. It’s not that you don’t need to be working, it’s not that you don’t need to be living your life, it’s not that you don’t need to be living a very vibrant lifestyle or anything like that, but there are responsibilities that are far, far, far more extensive than a typical 9 to 5 that somebody in their 80s may not need to be doing. I think the presidency is one of ’em.”
