“You know, I’m going to be turning 50 in a week, so I’m starting to think a little bit more about Medicare eligibility,” Obama said while discussing a possible deal to reduce the debt.
“Yeah, I’m going to get my AARP card soon,” Obama said. “And the discounts.”
During a recent AARP interview, President Obama said the “worst thing” about turning the big “50” Aug. 4 is “I don’t feel I’m as fast as I used to be.
And I heal up slower on the basketball court. Also, I’m old enough where hopefully I’ve made enough mistakes I’m not going to repeat. And I’m still young enough that I can appreciate that wisdom.”
The president was then asked how he would spend his 50th. “Last year, on my 49th, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and all these other All-Star players came and played a pickup game with a bunch of my friends and me. Had a wonderful time. It’ll be hard to top that. But I suspect the girls may have something planned.”
