President Biden, on his birthday Monday, made several jokes about his age during the annual White House turkey pardon before confusing Taylor Swift and Beyoncé when they talked about the origins of the massive birds.
The 81-year-old Biden, who told a crowd in Washington that “it’s hard to be 60,” saved the lives of Liberty and Belle, two turkeys from Minnesota.
“Now, just to get here, Liberty and Belle have had to overcome some tough odds, compete. They’ve had to work hard to show patience and be willing to travel over a thousand miles,” Biden said. “You could say this is harder than getting a ticket for the Renaissance tour, or the Britney tour she’s on – it’s kind of warm in Brazil now.”
Biden appeared to be referring to Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” — which is notoriously hard to get tickets, and is scheduled to take place tonight in Rio de Janeiro — and Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” tour, which recently concluded at the beginning of October. .

The president said today’s event was “the unofficial start of the holiday season” and was a time to “share joy, gratitude and a little fun.”
“This is the 76th anniversary of this event,” Biden said in another joke about his age. “And I want you to know, I was not there, the first.”
Biden said that Americans will gather this week with the people we love and the traditions that each of us has built in our families.
It’s Biden’s 81st birthday. Are voters concerned about the president being old?
“We will also think of the loved ones we have lost, including just yesterday. We lost former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, who walked her own path, inspiring the nation and the world along the way,” he said.
“Let’s remind ourselves that we are fortunate to live in the greatest nation on Earth. This is what I see when I travel to America,” Biden also said after pardoning the turkeys, noting how he helped provide food to service members yesterday. At Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia.
