Hillary Clinton is 68. Donald Trump is 69. Bernie Sander is 74. If these people lived in the real world and were trying to get a job they would be dismissed without a phone call or a conversation. They would be viewed as old, and by being labeled old they could not possibly do the job, but these people are running for president so the rules applied to mere mortals don’t exist to them. If anybody dares to bring up their age that person would be crucified by the media. In the real world you have to put your birthday/birthdate on the online application or give the year of your graduation. Each of these dates allow the potential employer to know the age of the applicant. So why do we readily accept the fact that a 74 year old is fit to lead the free world, but if you are over 50 you don’t possess the stamina to work in other segments of society. You don’t have to just look at the presidential race look at the Senate: John McCain 79, Mitch McConnell 74, and Harry Reid, 78. So maybe if you’re too old to work in the real world maybe there is a life for you in politics. Share your thoughts.
You are never too old to be president, but try finding a regular job at 74 is another story
