With age comes wis­dom...aye right!

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION -

This week I learned that if you want to be­come US Pres­i­dent you must be at least 35 years old.

To be­come a sen­a­tor, you must be 30. To join Congress, 25.

In­cred­i­bly, these are the ages when a per­son is ad­judged to be men­tally sound and ma­ture enough to han­dle the pres­sures of these po­si­tions.

You couldn’t make it up! Love him or loathe him, “men­tally sound and ma­ture” are not words I would ever as­so­ci­ate with Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

Maybe there should be a max­i­mum age to hold of­fice, too, here and in the US. The younger gen­er­a­tion cer­tainly couldn’t do any worse than those we have in power.
