Biden is set to turn 81 in November, and is the oldest sitting president in U.S. history. Despite his fair share of critics, the politician has set his sights on reelection in 2024, focusing on his accomplishments and telling Americans, "Let's finish this job."

"When I say every discussion, I don't mean 99 percent of the discussion — every discussion," Scarborough said. "I asked Reverend Al [Sharpton] if he was hearing it all the time on our show this past week. He's hearing it as well."

Scarborough explained that is a popular opinion he encountered, adding, "So, you know, we often will complain about Republicans who will say one thing about Donald Trump off the air and another on air. Well, let me just say, Democrats off the air will say 'Joe Biden's too old. Why is he running?' On the air — they won't say that."
