There’s A Rebuttal For That – Complaint #18

So, did Suzanne Collins say how old President Snow was supposed to be?

Complaint #18 – Why is President Snow old?

TFGeekGirl, TheFandom.Net – I’ll answer this with my own question:  Why do people think President Snow is young?

Aldrin, Down With The Capitol – Are there many young presidents to begin with? When I think of a president, I generally think of them being older.

Denise, – President Snow has a granddaughter that is mentioned in Mockingjay, so he has to be at least old enough for that.

Savanna, HG Fireside Chat – Because he is old. Textual evidence: He has white hair. He has a granddaughter. He’s been in power for a long time. He likes gardening.

Tanvi, Hunger Games Network – Please don’t tell me you thought if he was young he’d fit the Damon Salvatore category. He wasn’t a hot villain. He was a grandfather. Not worth your crush!


To see our previous complaints, go to our Rebuttal Page

We will be posting a new complaint and our argument against it each day until all 36 complaints have been posted.  We hope that if you didn’t like the movie for any of the issues we have coming within this next month, you will continue to hear us out and at least take into consideration our reasoning/rebuttal about it. Logical comments are welcome!  All others are invalid.
