In a recent podcast interview with Bill Maher, Sage Steele, the former ESPN host, was candid in her assessment of President Joe Biden. She didn't mince words, referring to him as a "poor president" and raising concerns about signs of cognitive decline she observed during her 2021 interview with him.
Steele recounted her encounter with Biden, revealing that she reluctantly agreed to host a live show featuring him. Technical glitches disrupted the interview's start, forcing Steele to engage in casual conversation while waiting for things to resolve. It was during this unplanned exchange that she overheard Biden inquiring about the audience and the show's identity.
Clearly taken aback, Steele recalled her reaction, exclaiming, "Oh, my goodness!" She continued, "And then he inquired, 'SportsCenter, ESPN.' And he responded with, 'Oh, okay.' So I greeted him with, 'Hello, Mr. President. Pleasure to meet you.' I was trying my best to fill the time."

According to Steele, Biden then delved into football anecdotes and boasted about his past prowess. She expressed her frustration at being unable to see him due to a blacked-out camera lens but acknowledged that his voice was audible. At one point, when she speculated that he might have played as a wide receiver, his response faltered, culminating in a hesitant, "Uhh… never mind."
Steele found the entire encounter disheartening and speculated that this might be the reason Biden spent a significant amount of time in his basement during the election campaign. She stressed that her concerns transcended political differences and that, ultimately, she felt empathy for him.
