National Journal Wonders if Man Who’s Six Years Older Than Hillary is Too Old

June 17, 2015

Progressives don’t like it when you bring up the scientifically accurate fact that Hillary Clinton is 67 years old but apparently Bernie Sanders, who’s only six years her senior is cause for concern…

Bernie Sanders and the Age Question

In recent weeks, many have started treating Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination seriously, but without addressing or even acknowledging the elephant in the room—Sanders’ age.

Sanders, now 73 years old, will be turning 75 on Sept. 8, 2016, two months before the presidential general election. That makes him six years and six weeks older than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the strong favorite for the Democratic nomination.

Clinton, 67, will be turning 69 on Oct. 26, 2016, about two weeks before the election. This is not to argue that Clinton is too old to run or serve; if elected, she would be about eight months younger than Ronald Reagan was when he won his first term in 1980.

Ahh, yes. The Reagan card. Liberals love to bring that up whenever age is an issue for one of their own.

What they won’t tell you is that they mocked Reagan’s age throughout his entire presidency. Anyone who’s old enough to remember Saturday Night Live in those days will confirm.

I’m not a fan of Hillary or Sanders but let’s have a little consistency here, shall we?

Clinton is 67. Sanders is 73.

We’re talking about a six year difference.

If he’s too old, so is she.
