One year older than Hillary. Cmon dude I think it's time you started fact checking once or twice.

Also the Clintons are masters at presentation. Now showing on a TV near you: Old, Silent, Faithful, Bill : )

 

 

 

Yeah! And how does heart surgery make it hard for his brain and many many years of experience to not be an asset to her?

 

Joker might wish to ask the many that run marathons after surgery. And note its not heart surgery usually, its surgery to unblock

 

the arteries that feed the heart muscle. Its not a disability

Regan was even older. It worked for him (or maybe it was his wife). And don't forget those who have to have heart surgery because they ran a marathon. Oh wait, those are dead.

I don't see it as a glass half full/half empty comment. More of an engineer's 'the heart was precisely half as strong as it needed to be.'

The implication is heart surgery is about the heart, its usually about the arteries that feed the heart muscles, so once the latter is fixed, its not like

 

a post open heart surgery patient is a delicate old thing hanging onto life. Strong and healthy heart, deprived of blood, chest pains, muscle dies, heart attack, thats what happens, whether you are 40 or 80

Doesn't matter what the numerical age it is, he can hardly move or talk nowadays. Not sure why.

Pump brain

 

Actually I googled pump brain and this was the first thing that came up, so apologies that is the total garbage that it is, I will change it later ...

 

this is probably more accurate, long term issues apparently has nothing to do with pump brain.

I wasn't being pessimistic, just commenting on the stories I have seen (at least three that I can recall) about fit, middle-aged men (all were men) who collapsed and died while doing their regular jog. It happens.

On the other hand there is a correlation between heart attacks and cocaine use. So maybe it's the cocaine.

It does, and they all probably have healthy hearts, its the fuel pipes feeding the muscles that's the issue. I also know two females who had surgery, one under 50 the other under 60

Reagan was showing clear signs of dementia long before it was announced - while he was still in office.

 

Then "W" proved that Americans are happy to elect the demented, thus opening the door to Trump.

Alzheimers is cruel disease and like other illnesses and disabilities should not be used in mocking references be they direct or subtle.
