Tucker Carlson, a former host at Fox News, concurred with Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, on the advanced age of both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, suggesting that their age renders them unsuitable for the presidency.
The aforementioned interaction took place towards the conclusion of Carlson’s interview titled “Tucker on X” with Portnoy, which was released on Thursday evening.

“To be honest, I think both Trump and Biden are too old. I don’t think you should be able to be that old and be president,” Portnoy said.
“I agree 100%,” Carlson responded after nodding emphatically during Portnoy’s statement.
The phenomenon of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell experiencing repeated instances of freezing in public was also examined by Carlson and Portnoy.
Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, is currently 77 years old. Joseph Biden, the current President of the United States, is 80 years old. Mitch McConnell, a prominent political figure and the Senate Minority Leader, is 81 years old.
“How are these people running our country?” Portnoy continued. “There are no companies in the world where I would buy stock where you’re having the CEO seemingly at that advanced age. It’s just only in politics. It’s crazy.”
Biden’s age is only slightly advanced compared to Trump’s, and although several individuals in their eighties may retain their vitality well into this stage of life, it is frequently observed that substantial physical and cognitive deterioration can manifest, sometimes abruptly. If Trump were to secure victory in the primary and achieve an outcome in the general election that is deemed highly improbable, he would assume office at the age of 78 and conclude his tenure at the age of 82, which is notably similar to Biden’s age.
During the conversation, Carlson informed Portnoy that Trump had approached him regarding the interview that was released last week, coinciding with the GOP presidential debate. Carlson further mentioned that he and his producer were uncertain about Trump’s commitment to the interview when the agreement was initially made.
