Do you remember when people used to show respect for the President?
Before MLB’s Opening Day in 2021, former ESPN anchor Sage Steele had the opportunity to interview President Joe Biden. However, during a discussion on Bill Maher’s “Club Ransom” podcast, Steele shared her less-than-favorable impressions of the interview.
Steele’s primary observation was that she felt empathetic towards Biden because he appeared to struggle during their conversation. She conveyed that Biden tended to lose his train of thought and trailed off when addressing certain subjects.
“So forget about politics. I don’t care, I didn’t vote for him,” Steele said. “However, that made me sad. The human aspect of what we’re witnessing right now, to me, is heartbreaking. And it’s inexcusable by the family when you knew during the election.”
Setting aside political affiliations, Steele expressed sadness about the human aspect of what she witnessed during the interview.
“I thought it was so sad because I realized that’s why he was in the basement during the whole election cycle — because even then he couldn’t finish his sentences, he struggled.”
She found it disheartening and believed it was inexcusable for the family to have allowed Biden to run in the election, given these apparent difficulties.
She further reflected, “I thought it was so sad because I realized that’s why he was in the basement during the whole election cycle — because even then he couldn’t finish his sentences; he struggled.”
Sage Steele announced her departure from ESPN in August, citing her desire to exercise her First Amendment rights more freely. She had initially joined ESPN in March 2007.
