President Joe Biden is receiving some sharp debating advice from an unexpected source: Trump ally and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. In an interview with NBC News, Gingrich suggested that Biden could easily deflect attacks about his age by claiming that his experience has given him a wisdom that former President Donald Trump, despite being only three years younger, seems to lack.

“If I were Biden, I would stay away from the age issue and just say, ‘Look, I was wise enough not to try to overthrow the U.S. government,’” Gingrich advised. “Go through a list of five things in a row and say, ‘I would rather have my age with wisdom than your total lack of seriousness.’”

After the 2020 election, Trump infamously refused to concede that he lost and engaged in a months-long allegedly criminal conspiracy to overturn the results. This included asking his Justice Department to baselessly declare the entire election “corrupt,” strong-arming the Georgia secretary of state to “find” him the votes needed to overturn the results, pressuring his then-vice president to violate the Constitution by unilaterally throwing out certified election results, and inciting a deadly riot at the United States Capitol.

In addition, Trump continues to refuse to concede the election and has even vowed to pardon the violent convicted criminals who stormed the Capitol on his behalf. Gingrich wasn’t the only Republican to offer Biden advice for cutting Trump down to size at a debate.

“If I was advising him [Biden], I’d try to make fun of Trump,” former Vice President Dan Quayle told NBC News. “Try to ridicule him. That will get him mad.” Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, meanwhile, advised Biden to go right for Trump’s throat.

“At some point, you have to walk into the room and say, ‘We’re going to kick his f—–g ass,’” Carville told the publication. “We’re going to clock this motherf—-r, you understand?”

The sharp advice from both sides highlights the high stakes and intense emotions surrounding the potential rematch between Biden and Trump. With his years of experience and strategic wisdom, Biden may have more tools in his arsenal than just his age, ready to counter Trump’s aggressive tactics.
