Donald Trump Jr. had the gall to snipe at Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden for being older than his dad in the wake of Super Tuesday, drawing loads of ridicule and mockery on Twitter.
As it becomes clearer that Sanders and Biden are the top candidates in the Democratic primary left standing who have a path to the nomination, Trump Jr. decided to focus on their ages.
Sanders is 78-years-old while Biden is 77. Either would become the oldest president ever elected if they beat Trump in November.
Don Jr. bragged that his dad is younger than both of them and that he supposedly has more energy.
Nice to see @realDonaldTrump as the youngest viable candidate left in the race from both sides. Maybe that explains his energy?

The problem is that Trump is 73 and was the oldest president ever elected to the office when he won in 2016. If age were a barrier to being elected, his dad should not be president right now because Hillary Clinton is a year younger than him.
As for energy, Trump is the laziest president we’ve ever had. Most of his day is spent watching television and tweeting during “executive time” and when he isn’t doing that he is on a golf course, which he traverses in a golf cart.
Twitter users fired back with their own notes on Trump’s energy and viability as a candidate.
Only when he’s high on Adderall.

The youngest yet the only one in diapers.

He also weighs as much as all the other candidates combined, so he’s got that going for him.

May be the youngest, but the only one with dementia. And DJ you are STILL not relevant.

Adderall accounts for some of his “energy” but the crazy speech, made up words and odd gait are generally explained by the Neuro disorder which is likely dementia! Sit down Skippy.

A pregnant sea turtle has more energy then Trump.

Viable?!? That’s a laugh! Your Dad is unnaturally orange and oh so pleasantly plump… I bet he couldn’t even run one lap around a track!
“Oh, my bone spurs!! This is so unfair!!!”

His energy is no greater than the sum total of the battery level of his golf carts. Come on, he’s old enough to remember being a draft-dodger. There’s also the Adderall. 🤔

Neither Trump nor his children have any business accusing other candidates of being “unfit” for the presidency, especially since Trump still has not completed a physical he began in November. He lives on fast-food so much that White House physicians have to sneak veggies into his mashed potatoes to get him to eat something healthy.
At this point, it does not matter how old the Democratic candidate is because even a decaying corpse would be a better president than Trump right now.
