President Biden Turns 80, Making Him the First Octogenarian in the Oval Office [VIDEO]
U.S. Vice-President Joseph Biden turns 80 on April 5 and is no longer the oldest man ever to serve in the Oval Office, as Tom Brokaw first reported in 2008.
“I was thinking about Joe Biden. Joe Biden had his own party, his own platform, his own way,” Brokaw said. “And now he’s 80, and he’s in a third-place position in the U.S. Senate, by the way, and he has to run the country for four more years, and he’s not gonna be 80 any more.”
“You know, so while [Barack Obama] is the oldest person ever to serve and I will always, always, always take my hat off to Joe Biden,” he added, “so he is definitely an exception, to be sure, because Joe Biden is the exception, but in all honestly, there could be no more an exception than Joe Biden.”
“He has an amazing memory. He’s an incredible, incredible storyteller. He’s always had a great sense of humor, and he has a great sense of humor. He’s always had a great feel for how to talk to people. He is just a great man. He is an extraordinary human being,” Brokaw continued. “For those of you who haven’t seen the recent documentary made about him, ‘An Inconvenient Story’ about him and the last campaign, which was really wonderful, and I think it was a great thing and I have to tell you that I was a big fan of that movie. He was the lead character in it. He was the main character in it. It was so good, and he was really, really terrific.”
