Donald Trump was the oldest person to ever be sworn in as president. Today he’s 73, a handful of years shy of the average life expectancy for American men. In a clip that’s bound to boost his ego, a Fox News contributor on one of his favorite shows this weekend fawned over his youthful energy and said his appearance just keeps getting better every day. You’ve got to watch it to believe it:

“Donald Trump can outwork anyone and he’s, I think, the only president who actually starts to look younger in office,” Rachel Campos-Duffy, a former Real World star who is now a conservative commenter, said on Fox & Friends Saturday during a discussion of the 2020 campaign. She also bashed Joe Biden, 76, for what she described as a lack of stamina.

Trump, who recently bragged he liked campaigning against people like Biden, who he said had gotten “slower” and “weak mentally” with age, is sure to enjoy the exchange. Others were less impressed by the Dear Leader routine.

 
 

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
