There’s an old saying among lawyers: “If you have the facts on your side, pound the facts. If you have the law on your side, pound the law. If you have neither on your side, pound the table.”

The co-hosts of “The View” used that same strategy when the conversation turned to polling that shows many Americans believe Joe Biden is too old to be president.

Since a rational analysis of Biden’s situation would only make him look bad, the co-hosts pounded the discussion away with non sequitur filibusters and then changed the subject to Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, The Daily Caller posted a clip on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) of the chaos that erupted on “The View” when they were exposed to information they did not want to hear.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin brought up a Wall Street Journal poll updated on Monday. Like other recent polling, the results show a majority of Americans believe President Joe Biden, 80, is too old to serve another term.

Griffin tried to share information about the poll and its potential consequences for Biden. “73 percent of Americans are worried that he is too old to be president again. And he is, you know, going to be the Democrat nominee.”

Joy Behar acted fast to derail Griffin’s train of thought.

“Wha — but but but — true, I don’t mean to interrupt you,” Behar said, interrupting Griffin. “But isn’t true Fox and all those right-wing stations keep showing pictures of him tripping, the way people trip?”

To Behar, the problem isn’t that Biden has an extensive history of high-profile stumbles. The problem is “all those right-wing stations” accurately report what happened.

Griffin tried to make her point. “Yeah, but 73, the 73 percent of Americans, that’s just not Fox News viewers, that’s a lot of Democrats.”
