President George H.W. Bush became the longest-living U.S. president Saturday at 93 years old and 166 days, Gabe Fleisher, a writer for the daily political newsletter "Wake Up To Politics" noted on Twitter.

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

The older Bush was president from Jan. 20, 1989, to Jan. 20, 1993, and has recently come under fire after seven women accused him of touching them inappropriately, The Associated Press reported.
