If you think Donald Trump is too old to be president, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was born on November 20, 1942, so do the math. Seventy-seven is the luckiest age you can celebrate. What’s ol’ Joe doing today to mark this wonderful occasion?

Well, first things first: Joe just found out he’s a grandpa again! Frank E. Lockwood, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

DNA testing has established, “with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas baby, according to a motion filed Wednesday in Independence County on behalf of the child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts…

Hunter Biden, who initially denied having sexual relations with Roberts, eventually agreed to take a DNA test, according to documents filed by Roberts’ attorney, Clint Lancaster.

What a bundle of joy! Let’s hope Joe says hi to the newest member of his family during the next part of Joe’s birthday celebration: tonight’s Democratic debate in Atlanta. If Joe seems confident about it, that’s because he looked into his crystal ball and saw how well he’s going to do. At least that’s what he’s telling his supporters today:

Of course you will have made us proud by the time you were supposed to have sent that, Joe!

And apparently the Biden family name came up during the House Intelligence Committee hearings? I haven’t really been paying attention to that whole thing, but I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about. Just another thoughtful birthday present for Joe.

If Joe Biden takes the oath of office on January 20, 2021, he will be the oldest president in the history of the United States. But today, he’ll just have to settle for being the luckiest fella on the face of the Earth.

Happy Birthday, Joe. Your 78th year is sure to be the best yet!
