(CBrief) – Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a comment about President Joe Biden’s age during an interview earlier this week that was immediately ridiculed by social media users.

During a conversation about the future of democracy on Monday with Evan Smith, a journalist with the Atlantic, the California Democrat asserted that Biden’s age is not a concern as he is younger than she is.

“He is absolutely a magnificent leader,” she claimed. “He is younger than I am . . . so I don’t know what the problem is.”

Twitter users were prompted to highlight several flaws in Pelosi’s argument, contrary to her belief that it was a strong defense of Biden. To begin with, Biden is not significantly younger than Pelosi, as she claimed. With Pelosi being 82 and Biden being 80, the age gap between them is not significant, and they are practically of the same age, the Western Journal noted.

A Twitter user argued that comparing Biden’s youth to Pelosi’s was not a compelling argument, as Pelosi herself seemed to display signs of aging. He wrote, “Someone needs to tell @SpeakerPelosi that this is NOT the winning point she thinks it is. She also seems somewhat impaired in looks, voice & mannerisms.”

Another Twitter user noted, “Watch this without sound and tell me she doesn’t look absolutely Insane.”

Still another user noted that it’s not the age of Biden, but rather his perceived inability to function to a level required by his duty as leader of the free world. “They keep defending Biden’s calendar age, as if that’s the issue, and not his obvious infirmity,” the user wrote.
