Pelosi blows off age concerns by noting she’s older than Biden, so Twitter points out the obvious – (Full Video)

Like a Hoveround on the highway, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s defense of President Joe Biden’s age was a slow-motion accident in the making, topped off by the all-too-sudden conclusion of how she sees the man less than three years her junior.

“Methuselah is a kid compared to this crypt keeper.”

The Democratic powers that be have yet to balk on their support for 80-year-old Biden’s reelection campaign, and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” confronted that issue head-on when she asked 83-year-old Pelosi what she made of criticism that he’s “too old to have a second term.”

“I think the president should embrace his age, his experience…the knowledge that he brings to the job,” she began her lengthy screed that juked downhill like San Francisco’s Lombard Street toward her conclusion that “he’s a kid to me.”

Before opening herself up to all sorts of colorful comparisons, the former House Speaker attempted to treat age as a partisan weapon with a shot at 77-year-old former President Donald Trump. “Actually, the leader on the other side is not much younger — I don’t like to use his name, but you know who I mean — he’s not that much younger.”

“So I don’t think — age is a relative thing. It is — and I think this president, our country is very well-served by his leadership,” she claimed before touting the bravery of her progressive peers for pushing for leftist legislation.

“Again, his leadership, his knowledge, and it counts for a lot…his first two years in office, and I take some credit for that in terms of congressional Democrats having the courage to go out there and vote for some of these things which were being mischaracterized by the other side that, it was record-breaking,” Pelosi argued. “And we have more, there’s still more work to be done in terms of women in the workplace and the rest. So we want him to do his unfinished business. I couldn’t be prouder of him, and again, we’re very fortunate that he is in that position.”

“Again, age is relative. I was in L.A. for some Democratic stuff recently and I met with Norman Lear, who’s 100, going on 101, he was telling me some new shows he was involved in, and I was meeting with Frank Gehry, 90-something architect showing me new buildings he’s building throughout the world. And they were like ’80? He’s a kid!’ It’s relative,” the congresswoman recounted before turning herself into a punchline. “He’s younger than I am so he’s a kid to me as well.”

Brzezinski and cohost Joe Scarborough may have laughed as sycophants at the California politician’s notion, but social media was ready to prove where the joke really was.

Some took to general criticism of the gerontocracy that has rooted itself in the halls of power, refusing to step aside despite the apparent struggles so routinely displayed by Biden and others, like Tuesday when he met with Israeli President Isaac Herzog, mumbling his way through prepared remarks.
