Biden Celebrates ‘146th Birthday’ with a Flaming Cake
On his 81st birthday, President Biden humorously acknowledged his age in a spirited Instagram post. He playfully remarked about running out of space for candles on a cake suitable for someone celebrating their 146th birthday. The cake, crowded with numerous candles along its edge, created an impressive ring of fire, eliciting amused comments about its size and safety concerns.
Biden, who has often joked about his age, finds it increasingly in the limelight due to public perception. Recent polls suggest that voters view him as too old for another presidential term. This attention to his age has been a recurrent theme since his 2020 campaign.
On the same day, during the traditional Thanksgiving turkey pardoning at the White House, Biden quipped about only turning 60 and humorously clarified that he wasn’t present at the first ever turkey pardoning 76 years ago, being too young at the time.
The president and First Lady Jill Biden are set to spend his birthday in Nantucket, Massachusetts, with their family. They plan to remain there through the Thanksgiving holiday.
