Biden on the brink of 81, tries to cheat nature


President Joe Biden turns 81 years old on Monday. He was 78 when he became the oldest presidential candidate to be elected, and last November became the only president in American history to turn 80 while in office. On average, presidents have been 55 years old when they have taken their oath of office.

If reelected, Biden would be 82 years old at the beginning of his second term, and 86 at the end of the term, should he survive until January, 2029, the end of the next term.

At the same time, former President Donald Trump is no spring chicken. He is 77 years old, and will turn 78 in June, the same age that Biden was when he became president in 2020. Trump is the Republican’s leading contender for nomination to the 2024 General Election ballot.

According to the White House physician’s report, issued in February, “President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.” But old age is quickly becoming his biggest achievement, and it comes up time and again as a national security concern.

Biden is increasingly seen as a liability to down-ballot candidates. Even the Alaska Democratic Party has stopped referring to him in any of their communications, and in swing states, Democrat candidates are not requesting Biden’s endorsement or appearances at campaign events.

David Axelrod, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, posted on X/Twitter: “What he [Biden] needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it’s in HIS best interest or the country’s?” adding that “the stakes of miscalculation here are too dramatic to ignore.”

In an interview with columnist Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, Axelrod said, “I don’t care about them thinking I’m a prick — that’s fine,” Axelrod told Dowd, responding to reports that Biden had called Axelrod a prick. “I hope they don’t think the polls are wrong, because they’re not.”

Axelrod also said the president has a real problem if he thinks he can “cheat nature.”

Biden already has set the record for the oldest president to be elected. The top 20 list shows that Donald J. Trump was the second-oldest, followed by Ronald Reagan:

146Joe Biden78 years 61 days
245Donald J. Trump70 years 220 days
340Ronald Reagan69 years 348 days
49William Henry Harrison68 years 23 days
515James Buchanan65 years 315 days
641George H. W. Bush64 years 222 days
712Zachary Taylor64 years 100 days
834Dwight D. Eisenhower62 years 98 days
97Andrew Jackson61 years 354 days
102John Adams61 years 125 days
1138Gerald R. Ford61 years 26 days
1233Harry S. Truman60 years 339 days
135James Monroe58 years 310 days
144James Madison57 years 353 days
153Thomas Jefferson57 years 325 days
166John Quincy Adams57 years 236 days
171George Washington57 years 68 days
1817Andrew Johnson56 years 107 days
1928Woodrow Wilson56 years 66 days
2037Richard M. Nixon56 years 11 days

The youngest president ever sworn in was Theodore Roosevelt, who was nearly 43 when he became president; he had been vice president to William McKinley, who was assassinated on Sept. 14, 1901.

In general, the age of presidents has continued to get older, although Barack Obama was 47, and Bill Clinton was 46 at the time of their inaugurations.


  1. Age is irrelevant, it is mental acuity that is important. Biden is a deranged, feeble old man. DJT is a vigorous, politically astute, God-fearing, experienced, and supremely competent older gentleman. Yes, they are both old, but DJT has demonstrated his superiority in his older years and is fit for office.
    DJT 2024!

    • Hill, eh? Why you sound like a babbling hummock! Biden and Trump are just two old farts stumbling through their last years of life! But if you play your cards right, Hill, you just might be able to cast several ballots for your enfeebled hero!

      • Compare Trunp on an open mike compared to Biden. Biden drifts off to some old obscure story that isn’t true and makes no sense. He’ll then wander the stage until someone pulls him off. No comparison here.

    • That’s absurd bull sh–. No one at 80 has the stamina or the brain function of a sharp 50 year old so don’t give us that nonsense. Who in the h— comes up with this cr–.???

    • God Fearing! As Enigo Montoya would say, I do not think it means what you think it means. He cheated on all of his wives, the most famous example of which was with a porn star while his third wife was pregnant.

      I have no argument with supremely confident, although I’m not sure asserting that he knows more than the generals (for example) is an attribute. It is most definitely supremely confident, though.

      • Get a grip, “reliable” voter! So Trump cheats–big deal! Women accept this “proclivity” in men. This is nothing new! The fundamental nature of “man” hasn’t changed since the beginning of time: thus, Trump will be Trump in this regard! I won’t hold that against him, but what I find objectionable is his hubris and profound ignorance.

      • Look, 3G Alaskan, any man–obviously, including Trump–reserves the right to change his mind on any issue. Trump may be hubristic and profoundly ignorant, but he still reserves the right to change his mind on any matter. The question is why the change of mind?

        God fearing and religious–what do you mean when you use these terms?

  2. the oldest presidential candidate to be elected”
    Couldn’t read past the part of the “being elected “ part. Sworn in and elected are two entirely different things.

  3. Heaven help us all if Biden is re-elected and sworn in again. Only 11 months 18 days until we hit the presidential reset button again.

  4. Who is gonna sponsor his campaign (besides China and Ukraine)?

    Aunt Agnes applesauce?
    California prunes?

  5. This is just a third term of Barry Soetero. Not sure the country can survive a fourth term of Barry and his husband Michael Robinson.

    • Please explain your logic on that one.
      I just do not see it. Granted, it will happen in some areas, but not (in my opinion) any worse than any other Presidential candidate in any other election year.
      But, if you have some insight everyone else is lacking, share it up.
      And… just because Trump “might” be a down ballot liability does not excuse how disastrously bad Briben is.

      • Mr. Trump was a dark shadow over both the 2022 and 2023 election cycles. Mr. Trump is becoming more irrational as he ages and offers no new ideas. His is a politics of narcissism, grievance and complaint that appeals to the worst in many and the best in very few. His negatives are sky-high. Conservatives can and must offer a better candidate to Americans than the 77 year-old Mr. Trump. I will not vote for him.

          • I have no idea what this means. That said, I don’t require your explanation. Donald Trump has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

        • So correct and don’t forget the role he played and still supports his warp speed injection which has taken the lives and disabled so many. I cannot overlook such foolish ignorance. I’m very skeptical there will be a 2024 election.

        • Actually, the candidates Trump endorsed did pretty well overall. Yes, some high profile cases did not go his way, which the news harped on endlessly.
          And, aside from disliking his personality, what else do you have? Bill Belichek is everything you dislike about Trump, and he is also one of the winningest coaches in sports. Want to win? Or do you want a nice guy in charge?

          • I don’t need a nice guy but I will request a rational one and demand a moral one. BTW, Trump lost to a senile fool in 2020. I know that he does not accept that and you may not, but that is the truth. Trump lost Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona. There may have been some funny stuff in those states but not in all of them.

      • Much as I hate to agree, I can see potential in his position. Classic case of a stopped clock being right.

        -there’s a very good chance money which might go to other candidates might be siphoned to push Trump over the finish line.

        -based in the last two elections, a sizable minority will vote Trump then stop.

        -the left is gonna be more energized than ever to beat Trump. Definitely means more money raised and a potentially higher Karen turnout.

        -low information voters may have a tendency to blame Trump for everything. Including down ballot races.

        Will it happen? Time will tell. Could it? Bigger risk than I’m comfortable with.

  6. “President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.” Does anybody really believe that? Everyone can see that the “emperor” has no clothes.

    • Curiously, the media refused to believe the WH Doctor’s reports on Trump when he was President.
      Weird how no major talking heads are discussing how unlikely it is Briben’s health report is so glowingly good.

  7. In my best Colonel Potter voice, I say “Horse Hockey” to the White House physician. The man is either blind, deaf or dumb and is not qualified for a medical license.

  8. “… Biden remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male,…” Biden is vigorous in the same way the horrible Michelle Obama was young and hip. That Mach truck was, is, anything but and vigorous men don’t poop their own pants and keep falling down.

    • Not sure what your point might be. Although young by chronological age, Mr. Kennedy was a very sick man. At one point he had been given the last rites of the Catholic church. His back was a complete train wreck and he abused steroids and amphetamines. He probably suffered from Addisons disease. His youth and vigor was a facade. Poor example.

  9. Biden is a feeble old man, declined cognition, great memory loss, and illegitimate as President. And, he is a corrupt politician with over 50 years of screwing people over and bragging about it. Put him in prison!

  10. A little over a decade ago, I was listening to G. Gordon Liddy still doing his talk show at 80-plus years old, talking about “virile, vigorous and potent” while sounding very tired indeed. I turned 57 this month. I’ve had to accept that there’s a never-ending supply of younger people eager to knock me off my perch in any number of things I may seek to do. Just who are these people who comprise the electorate? It’s hard to take our highest levels of government seriously when you contrast the obsession with Biden, Trump, Bernie Sanders, Mitch McConnell, ad nauseum with our national median age of 38. It’s not just a matter of age, it’s a matter of depth. When leaders emerge from the states, they get choked out by this false narrative that our only choice for years has been between Biden and Trump, driven by hive-mind cultism on both sides. The Biden and/or Trump obsessives appear to me as though they’re looking to be ruled by a king, not looking to participate in representative government. There’s also down-ballot fallout, as others have pointed out. I live in a state where replacing the feeble, lame-duck governor (no, not Mike Dunleavy) is a higher priority. I talk to some of these people and can’t get them to acknowledge this. They’ll be the first ones to complain about something on social media, however.

  11. Well. Its the “Golden Days” of a persons life (ages 55-70) they are supposedly at their peak for where a golden aged person reached professional and intellectual superiority, wisdom, wealth, they made friends and can make new relationships. Supposedly. So makes more sense a person campaigns for President after they reached 60 than a 30 or 55 year old who are more likely less experienced, less wealthy, less relationship oriented, and less smarter . Supposedly. I wouldn’t want just any 40 year old president leader presiding over a country meeting with world leaders. I’d rather a 70 plus year old than the younger candidate especially today after living with and looking over GenX and millennials.

  12. We can only hope that Divine intervention will remove this pestilence from the White House before he does any more damage to the Nation.

  13. I have never seen Trump stumbling or bumbling through anything. The man has the brain of someone in their prime. His energy level is stunning and all while he is being dragged through hell!

    • Being drug through hell may account for the bitterness some people complain about.
      Which proves his stamina…most would bow out and take the easy path but He is definitely a fighter I would place a bet on when it comes to negotiating a deal with any foreign adversary!
      He most definitely makes sure America would stand tall and come out on top versus OBriben who will give up the farm and head to the beach in his “Green” Corvette with a trunk load of cash “for the Big Guy”.

  14. I wonder if that sand bag was declared an “insurrectionist”, too?

    I mean, if a rotting sack of potatoes can be the US president, than a bag of sand can certainly be a seditious insurrectionist.

  15. If Biden wins again it will be a true “Weekend at Bernie’s.” He’ll just be a mumbling old puppet of a president. Dr. Jill just waiting for him to pass on so she can live the good life.

  16. I am confused by the majority of comments.

    1) Firstly, we should not be generalizing. There are plenty of incompetent younger people and plenty of acute and fully competent old people. Granted, statistically speaking, the preponderances follow age brackets. However, we do not elect age brackets. We elect individuals. Stop falling into the trap of generalizing population statistics upon individuals.

    2) Stop blaming Biden for our problems. It is blindingly obvious he is merely a puppet. The elite handlers and power-brokers of the Marxist cabal chose Biden because he was handy. He was the ex-VP, he is a proven Marxist, with a long political history, faithully adhering to communist principals. He always aspired in his mind to be president, he is easily controlled, he’s only in it for the adulation and will do whatever he is told. Their main problem is, they over-estimated Biden’s functionality being enough to avoid embarrassing the party. Never doubt the profound stupidity that exists at the highest levels of politics.

    3) I repeat, don’t blame Biden. The main faction responsible for the decline of our republic is the millions of Americans who cast their votes for him. If you want to criticize someone then criticize those leftist friends, co-workers and relatives who brought this on. Will you relent to the destruction of your republic in order to keep the peace at Thanksgiving dinner?

    4) In summary, Joe Biden is a red herring. A symptom, not the problem. A tool being used by the real problem. Do not waste your energy focusing on symptoms. Focus on problems. The problems surround you. At work. At school. In the store. In your family. At Thanksgiving dinner.

    5) Faith and hope are virtues. Do not foresake them. Don’t give up. Hang in there. Be bold. Pray to our heavenly father, Yahewh, unceasingly… through His Son Yeshuah. Be blessed my friends.

  17. It’s a tragedy that our choices are between a current octogenarian and someone that will quickly age into being an octogenarian. These two are not the best and the brightest. Tribal warfare at its worst.

  18. Funny Wayne I don’t know one person who voted for that sack. His (win) was mathematically impossible. You ever look at a dominion voting machine logo. .?? A Red ballot going in and a blue ballot coming out. Our country is in the worst most despicable shape it has ever been in. And here we sit with 12 more months of that moron bankrupting our country in more ways than 1. Lord have mercy I hope we can survive this.
