Obama added, “It’s OK. They’re part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities.”

Conservative commentator Andrew Malcolm wrote, “With friends like this …”

During a September interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” the president was asked how his mental focus is.

“Oh, it’s focused,” Biden responded. “I have trouble even mentioning, even saying to myself, in my head, the number of years. I no more think of myself being old as I am than fly.”
