Biden Marks ‘146th Birthday’ With Flaming Cake

President Biden marked his 81st birthday with a tongue-in-cheek reference to his age in a fiery Instagram post Monday.

“Turns out on your 146th birthday, you run out of space for candles!” Biden joked in the post, showing off his cake decorated with dozens of lit candles huddled together along the perimeter. The crowded flames formed a blazing ring atop the celebratory dessert, drawing awe in the post’s comments section.

“Does the secret service have a fire division?” one comment joked.

“Y’all could have at least made the cake bigger so all of those candles had a little room to breathe,” another read.

Biden has made a fair share of quips about his age in recent weeks. He has faced mounting concern over his age since his 2020 campaign, and his age has come more directly under the spotlight of late, with recent polls showing voters perceive the president to be “too old” to serve another term.

Biden spent his birthday Monday pardoning the Thanksgiving turkeys at the White House, during which he joked he was only turning 60 years old.

“I just want you to know it’s difficult turning 60. Difficult,” he said during the ceremony.

He also noted the 76th anniversary of the turkey pardoning tradition at the White House.

“I want you to know I wasn’t there at the first one; I was too young to make it up,” he said.

The president and first lady Jill Biden plan to travel to Nantucket, Mass., on Tuesday to celebrate Biden’s birthday with family, and the pair will stay on the island through the Thanksgiving holiday.
