Trump’s Feeling Spry: ‘I’m A Young, Vibrant Man. I Look At Joe, I Don’t Know About Him’

A chipper President Trump was feeling himself on Friday morning.

While he wouldn’t say that former Vice President Joe Biden was too old to run for President, he suggested Biden may not be perky enough for the gig.

“I think that I just feel like a young man, I am so young, I can’t believe it. I’m the youngest person,” he said when asked “how old is too old” to run for President. “I am a young, vibrant man. I look at Joe, I don’t know about him. I don’t know.”

He added that all the Democrats running for President are “making me look young, both in terms of age and energy.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
