Joe Biden is the oldest man to occupy the Oval Office. He broke the record previously set by Donald Trump. Both are likely candidates for president in 2024. How old is too old to be president? It’s a question we should address as a nation. I wrote an opinion article for The Hill recently. Here’s an excerpt from the beginning of this very relevant article:
If Joe Biden runs for reelection in 2024 and wins, he would be 86 years old at the end of his second term. If Donald Trump runs and wins two years from now, he would be 82 years old on Jan. 20, 2029. Would they be too old for what is viewed as one of the most stressful jobs in the world?

So I should vote for a younger candidate than someone I may completely disagree with ideologically? Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Is that seriously what you are suggesting?
It’s also funny that you suggest Trump has dementia (extremely premature at this point), but completely ignore that Biden is currently and completely demonstrating advanced signs of dementia.
I wasn’t suggesting people vote for any particular candidate. My point is that people should evaluate a candidate’s age and health history as part of the mix of who to vote for. There are risks associated with voting for an older candidate, whether they be a Republican or Democrat. My comment about potential dementia in Trump was based on the information I found and his family history. I’ve not found similar data about Biden “demonstrating advanced signs of dementia.” That may be an exaggeration based more on political persuasion than facts, especially the part about “advanced” dementia. I would love to read any credible evidence you may have about Biden’s dementia. Thanks for commenting.
