Not defending trump, but all the ageist opinions from mehdi really caught me off guard. I have 30 years, but I don't see age as a reason to attack a person. Attack there lack of morals and values. Trump is lacking in many different ways. His age is irrelevant. This episode felt a bit prejudice in that way

Kevin McCracken There certainly is a bias in this episode and double standard (especially since Bernie Sanders is 77, compared to Trump's 72), but the 25th amendment exists for a reason. This is just a certain perspective Mehdi is giving, which because he's the only one giving is, of course is a bias. This is some scary s*** though, regardless of someone's age, this President has some more serious problems...

Trump has got to go but chances are he'll finish his first term. What's important is that he not have a second term. Third party candidates (Howard Shultz for one) will only help Donald secure a second term.
