Most countries have a mandatory retirement age, especially in the case of public servants.

It's usually between 65 and 67.

You wouldn't see a General in his 70's in most modern countries, so why should the leader of a country be in their 70's.

Undemocratic countries such as the Soviet Union used to wheel their old leaders out to watch the May Day parades, and it was a rather pathetic sight even back then.

Blood vessel breaking in an eye isn't uncommon and hardly much to discuss. LOL. T's whole face looks like a hot tamale many days, now that is more worrying.

Well, we're not talking about "most countries", we're talking about the USA.


Mandatory retirement ages for military officers increase with rank. If you think about the difference in physical requirements between military officers and the POTUS, with regards to effectively performing their job, you'll see why this is not an apt comparison. Add to that the built-in "hiring process" every 4 years for a President and mandatory retirement becomes even less important.


Now, if you want to talk about mandatory retirement age for lifetime appointees and positions without term limits, I'm with you there.

High blood pressure or blood thinners... looks like Biden isn't doing too well in the health department.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Hillary reconsider a run now that Biden's mind is starting to deteriorate. Otherwise it's all unelectable progressives who want to take your healthcare away.
I guess you haven’t seen recent recent photos of HRC.

So did this eye issue happen during the show? All vids I've seen so far only start with his eye looking like that. I've not seen any footage of the same show where it's not like that.

The guy's going to croak any day now. For that reason I'm sure all the female demolibs running for president will try and at least be his running mate after being eliminated from the pool. Because when he croaks, that will make them automatically the first female President in American history. Hillary is getting the knee pads ready for when she begs him to choose her as his running mate.

He will have hillary, or Kamala as his running mate. Then if he gets elected, they will take him out under the 25th amendment, or he resigns due to health so hillary or kamala will be president.
