Two Septuagenarians in Succession (Trump & Biden) Elected President, Insanity

An op-ed in one of Britain’s largest newspapers has taken aim at Joe Biden, calling the 78-year-old president ‘exhausted’ and ‘too old’ to do the job.

The Daily Telegraph’s America editorial writer Tim Stanley—a conservative commentator—took aim at the president over his handling of the U.S. withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and claimed he lacked the ‘necessary acuity’ to be commander-in-chief.


Stanley, a staunch conservative, may have a bias in his assessment of the septuagenarian’s inability to serve as president of the United States and Leader of the Free World. But I urge Democrats to take off their rose-colored glasses and objectively consider Biden’s cognitive decline and frail physical appearance.

I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that conservatives who lament Biden’s suspect mental acuity fervently support Donald Trump, 75, as their preferred presidential candidate in 2024. Biden and Trump are both in mental decline, the difference being that Biden is a gentleman whose moral values haven’t declined whereas Trump is an amoral monster who is as wicked as the day is long.

Stanley is correct in stating:

“Biden has simply exhausted his once formidable talent and energy, and attempts to pretend that he’s a spring chicken have become a bad joke.”

A 78-year-old man is simply physical and mentally ill-suited to handle monumental problems like the coronavirus pandemic and the evacuation from Afghanistan.

Two septuagenarians in succession have been elected president of the United States, this insanity must come to end. Congress should pass a law disqualifying a presidential candidate who will be 65 or older on Inauguration Day from running.
