President George H. W. Bush becomes oldest living U.S. president


According to our affiliate WJLA, President George H.W. Bush became the oldest living U.S. president on Saturday at 93 years old and 166 days.

Gabe Fleisher, a writer for the daily political newsletter "Wake Up To Politics" noted the milestone on Twitter.

President Gerald Ford previously held the title since December 26, 2006, when he died at the age of 93 years and 165 days.

The older Bush was president from August 9, 1974, until January 20, 1977, and has recently come under fire after several women came forward and accused him of touching them inappropriately.
