Donald Trump has been flirting with the possibility of a third crack at the presidency since pretty much the moment he lost his second crack at the presidency. But it seems that even some of his staunchest, most loyal allies are beginning to question whether the reality TV washup turned ex-president has what it takes to do it all over again — mostly because of his grossly unhealthy eating habits.
Recently, devoted evangelical Trump supporter Franklin Graham sat down for a one on one with Axios on HBO and the topic of Donald Trump’s possible third bid at the White House came up.
“I think for him, everything will depend on his health at that time,” Christian evangelist Franklin Graham admitted in the interview when he was asked for his thoughts on whether or not Trump would run again. “If he still has energy and strength like he does. I don’t.”
Graham, who’s a hearty 68-years-old himself, continued, “You know the guy does not eat well, you know, and it’s amazing the energy that he has.”

Just for the record, that “amazing energy” of his probably comes from a long-standing stimulant addiction. But whatever, dude.
Trump, currently 74-years-old, would be 78 by the time he took his third stab at the presidency, the same age as President Biden. However, we all know damn good and well that while President Biden may be older than Trump by a few years, he is certainly loads healthier than his predecessor.
Franklin Graham, the son of the late prominent evangelical Billy Graham, has stuck by Donald Trump throughout many a not-so-Christ-like scandal over the years, saying in a 2018 Axios interview that he defends Trump because “he defends the faith.”
I guess serial adultery is cool so long as you don’t let two men get married.
“I never said he was the best example of the Christian faith,” Graham stated in the past interview. “He defends the faith. And I appreciate that very, very much.”
Of course, Graham himself is no stranger to scandal, as is pretty typical of the evangelical Christian type, when eight of his UK tour dates were scrapped last year after he made some seriously controversial comments about same-sex marriage, the Islam religion, and conversion therapy.
Of course, despite all of his teasing, Donald has yet to make any official announcements regarding his presidential or political plans for 2024. However, we can only hope that his steady intake of Diet Coke, steak, and an ungodly amount of ketchup will take care of that little problem for us before we even have to really worry about it.
