Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden face off in the Democratic debates every month. But which candidate is older: Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden? They seem to be pretty close in age to each other, and in fact they are. They’re separated in age by just a little over a year. In the December debate, their ages came up again during the questions.
Bernie Sanders was born on September 8, 1941. That makes him 78 years old.
Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942. That makes him 77 years old and almost exactly one year younger than Sanders. The November debate was on Biden’s birthday.
So Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are practically the same age, but Sanders is older.
For a 78-year-old, Sanders is still really spry and active. In fact, videos of Bernie running have been turned into memes and are shared across the Internet.
And he’s still great at basketball.
Biden’s pretty active for his age too.
And although he didn’t become a meme from any sporting events, he and Obama became a popular meme when Obama’s term was ending.
Both Sanders and Biden have been the source of some fun memes. Biden’s memes with Obama became very popular.
But who will ever forget Bernie’s Birdie Sanders moment?
So in conclusion, if you’re wondering who’s older, Bernie Sanders is about one year older than Joe Biden. So they’re practically the same age.
Now how do they compare in age to Donald Trump?
Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946. He’s 73 years old, so he’s younger than both Sanders and Biden.
What about Hillary Clinton? Clinton was born on October 26, 1947. That makes her 71 years old. She’s the youngest of the group. But she’s one year older than Elizabeth Warren, who was born on June 22, 1949 and is 70 years old.
Warren made a comment during the Democratic debate in December that she would be the youngest woman ever nominated if she got the Democratic nomination.
Her comment was made in response to a question asked in the December debate based on a comment that Obama had recently made about how the country might be better off if it was run by women rather than older people. Biden jokingly said that Obama wasn’t talking about him when he made that statement. He also said that he was focusing on getting a first term presidency and would look at questions about a second term after that first goal was achieved.
And Sanders said that the big problem in the country was about the oligarchy and rich people running the country and making the big decisions. The problem isn’t about age or whether the person running the country is a woman or a man, he said.
