“Growing up Senator Hatch’s family couldn’t afford to celebrate birthdays like the other kids in the neighborhood, so he has never enjoyed them. But he would never turn down birthday bacon. Happy 84th to Senator Hatch,” Hatch’s office tweeted from his account on March 22.
Hatch announced his retirement in early January, and received the medal of freedom from President Donald Trump on November 16, as he is the longest-serving member of the U.S. Senate.
