Is there a term for this? wrote:
Why the hate for old people?
Is the proper term “ageism” or “gerontophobia”?
I'd like a better variety of choices.
At the moment, I favor a 70 year old to be the nominee.
But I am concerned about maybe having an 80 year old president.
Ageism in the workplace is often a discriminatory practice where a company may pick a younger, less qualified person over an older person so they don't have to pay the person as much.
That's not the situation here. This is about who can nest handle the rigors of the presidency that is physically and mentally challenging.
There is a reason that people retire from work all together when they get old.
And it's not usually because they have more money than they can spend. It's because they're tired.
Age isn't everything, but it's a factor to consider.
All that said, I do like Biden's response to Trump trying to dig up dirt on him.
"He knows I'll beat him like a drum"
That should be his campaign slogan.
I kinda want to see an old man fight.
