Nancy Pelosi’s Comments on Biden’s Age Backfire as Twitter Users Point Out Glaring Problem with Logic

Published on

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks on President Joseph Biden’s age are being criticized on social media.

On Monday, she sat down with Atlantic journalist Evan Smith to debate the future of democracy, claiming that Biden’s age was not an issue because he is younger than she is.

“He is absolutely a magnificent leader,” Pelosi said, “He is younger than I am . . . so I don’t know what the problem is.”

Twitter users, however, were quick to point out that this was not the rousing defense of Biden that Pelosi believed it to be, and that her argument included multiple flaws.

Secondly, there is the reality that Biden and Pelosi have a similar age difference. Pelosi is 82 years old and Biden is 80 years old, which is a negligible age difference; they are essentially the same age.

One Twitter user said that comparing Biden and Pelosi in terms of youth was setting the bar fairly low, as Pelosi herself appeared to be exhibiting symptoms of aging. “Someone needs to tell @SpeakerPelosi that this is NOT the winning point she thinks it is,” he wrote. “She also seems somewhat impaired in looks, voice & mannerisms.

Another Twitter user went even further than that and said, “Watch this without sound and tell me she doesn’t look absolutely Insane.”

The idea is that stating that Biden is younger than Pelosi says little, as the majority of Americans are younger than Pelosi.

But there is also the reality that it is not primarily Biden’s age that is the issue, although that is taken into account; rather, it is his mental health that raises concerns.

The cause of criticism is not Biden’s age, but rather his seeming inability to complete a speech without making a succession of humiliating gaffes or his difficulties climbing the steps of Air Force One.

Pelosi’s assertion that Biden is competent because he is younger than her does not in any way justify him. He continues to exhibit cognitive deterioration symptoms that must be treated.

This is not intended as a jab at Biden or Pelosi’s ages, but rather to highlight the fundamental hole in Pelosi’s logic in claiming that Biden is competent simply because he is younger than she.

That appears to be yet another poor effort by the Democrats to dispel worries about Biden’s mental health.
