Biden has continued to defend himself against haters, and VP Kamala Harris also weighed in on Biden's age.

"The age thing, voters are concerned. According to almost every poll, that is an issue.

There's an entire generation of leaders you saw stand behind me. They are the future of the country.’ And I wondered, when you heard that, if you thought that was a four-year bridge or an eight-year bridge?” Katie Couric, 67, asked Harris during her her award-winning iHeartPodcastNext Question with Katie Couric,” which released on Wednesday, January 24.
