Media Criticizes Trump’s Age on His 78th Birthday, Ignoring Biden’s 81 Years


Former President Donald Trump turned 78 on Friday, and the media is highlighting his age, drawing comparisons to President Joe Biden, who turned 81 in November.

Matthew Foster, a lecturer at American University, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that Trump has a “drunken uncle vibe.” This comment comes as several polls have shown voter concern about Biden’s age.

“He’s giving off the old, drunken uncle vibe at times when he is giving these speeches, and this might be a sign of age, that you become less able to control all of your impulses,” Foster told the outlet.

A video from the Biden campaign says, “Hbd donald. 78 years unhinged!”

The outlet also noted that in recent months, Trump had “confused the leaders of Turkey and Hungary” and warned the world was heading “for a second” world war. Trump also called fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter a “wonderful man.”

The Washington Post pointed out that if elected president in November, Trump would be “the oldest president ever inaugurated.”

As Trump celebrated his birthday, first lady Jill Biden remarked that her husband is a “healthy, wise 81-year-old.”

A New York Times/Siena College poll from March found that 73 percent of registered voters feel Biden is “too old” to serve as an effective president. Forty-seven percent strongly agreed, while 26 percent somewhat agreed. Fourteen percent somewhat disagreed, and 11 percent strongly disagreed.
