The uh, most, uh, senile president ever

Let's Go Brandon's age is a problem.  Donald Trump's age is not. Here's why.

According to History

Joe Biden was 78 when he took the oath of office as the 46th president of the United States in January 2021. This earned him the spot as the oldest president in U.S. history.

In my previous post, in the video clip at about clip 2:42, there's yet another example, among countless examples now, of a man who requires mental health care, not someone who is of presidential quality.  It's not his only problem as a leader, but by far it's it's most compromising - even bigger than his corruption at this point. Rational thought is imperative in his role, and it's lacking in abundance.

Compare that, or any clip of his frighteningly incoherent babblings, to this recent Donald Trump speech, over an hour and twenty minutes long. There's no comparison in terms of mental acuity.

When Donald Trump wins the election and takes office he will be roughly the same age as Let's Go Brandon was when he took office in 2021. But even when Let's Go Brandon took office, there were signs of cognitive effeteness.  Check out these 2021 gaffes:

There is truly no comparison of the cognitive ability between the two men.  And it's not like there aren't other examples of better cognitive ability than Let's Go Brandon.  Remember how the Democrats always said president Reagan was senile?  He was robust as president, despite being the second oldest man to ever when he left office.

According to that same History article:
Born February 6, 1911, the nation’s 40th president was 77 years and 349 days old at the completion of his second term in January 1989. While campaigning in 1980, Reagan tried to put to rest questions about his age by pledging that he would resign if the White House physician ever detected signs of mental deterioration.
Once in office, Reagan proved to be remarkably resilient, and survived an assassination attempt in 1981, as well as surgery in 1985 to remove a cancerous polyp in his large intestine. Reagan always seemed the picture of robust health, in part because he exercised regularly with weights and enjoyed horseback riding and performing manual labor at his ranch in California. Reagan was able to brush aside concerns about age with humor, once joking during a 1984 debate that “I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience.”

Here's the great Ronald Reagan giving a  farewell speech to his staff, cognitive still, clearly:


The problem is Let's Go Brandon's mental acuity, whether it's due to age is irrelevant.  Other presidents have been mentally alert during their tenures. Don't get me wrong, I want Let's Go Brandon to be the Democrats' nominee, not some parachuted in last minute replacement. He deserves the drubbing he will get from it.  More importantly the disaffected Democrat voters might be far more forgiving of an unknown commodity like the evil Gavin Newsom than of Let's Go Brandon, and president Trump might not win.  I don't know, maybe it's too late to matter at this point.  Aside from the mail in vote scams, it's getting harder and harder to see Trump losing.  I just hope in saying that, I'm not being as stupid as this guy:
