Breakdowns in Memory and Age Limit Debate: US Politicians Over 70 Under Scrutiny

2023-07-30 16:04:55

Gaps in memory, stumbling blocks: Again and again, US politicians over 70 made a name for themselves with dropouts. First and foremost, President Joe Biden. An age limit for the congress is now being discussed.

US Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana meant well when he said late last week: “When hell freezes over there will be three things left: Chuck Grassley, Mitch McConnell and cockroaches.” In no way was he saying that he saw his fellow Republicans as vermin, rather he wanted to say that 89-year-old Senator Grassley and 81-year-old Senator McConnell were resilient. In the case of McConnell in particular, however, this is currently being questioned.
