Before And After: Every President Of The United States And How They Aged

You think your job is hard? Try being the President of the United States then. I bet you’d be begging for your old job at McDonald’s soon after. As the following before and after images show us, being Commander-in-Chief will age you prematurely in just a few years.

Thanks to ViralThread, we can now count all the wrinkles and every white hair on a President’s head in these before and after photos. From Barack Obama, George W. Bush to Bill Clinton, John F. Kennedy, and Abraham Lincoln, presiding over the greatest country in the world is no small business. In many respects, being a President of the United States awards a person significant power over the fate of the planet, and you can imagine the stress that comes with that.

As a POTUS, you have a discretionary power to launch nukes. You can kill millions. Tens of millions. Hundreds of millions. Billions, even, because one wrong move can spark another world war. So, is it any wonder even the seemingly most confident of these people aged intensely after just a few years of being Commanders-in-Chief of the USA? I think not, huh. In fact, it’s pretty apparent. And I’d rather stay safe, oblivious and dumb in my office cubicle. Seeing as I make a dozen of mistakes every day, I don’t feel comfortable with having a big red button on my work desk. I’d probably spill coffee on it and sink a continent or something.

So, sit back and relax… We’re having it easy. Unlike these guys.
