Washington, (APP – UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 21st Nov, 2023) Joe Biden joked about his age as he turned 81 on Monday, but the issue is no laughing matter for many voters who are worried he is too old for reelection next year.
In front of an audience including schoolchildren, he then quipped: “This is the 76th anniversary of this event — and I want you to know I wasn’t there for the first one.”
But a moment in which he mixed up US singers Taylor Swift and Britney Spears soon baffled his guests — and renewed focus on his age.
The Democrat is the oldest president in American history, and if he wins a second term next year he will be 86 by the time he leaves.
Poll after poll shows that a majority of voters think he is too old to be commander-in-chief. Incidents in which he has tripped, including on the stairs of Air Force One, repeatedly go viral.
