Wednesday night, former vice president and now the guaranteed front-runner (by the MSM) to the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden did something that is sure to catch the eagle eye of twitter users.
During the televised town hall when the outward corner of his left eye seemed to fill with blood, social media went Berserk.
Primaries are kicking off and Biden burst an eye??? What will happen if Biden slides to 2nd place?
Joe Biden’s age could become an issue on the campaign trail. The former vice president is 76-years-old. He was born on November 20, 1942. However, President Donald Trump is no spring chicken, either. Donald Trump is 73-years-old. Rounding out the geriatric presidential contenders, one must not forget Bernie Sanders. He’s older than Biden actually; he’s 77. Elizabeth Warren is 70.
After embarrassment at the town hall, Biden tweeted..
“We can’t turn a blind eye to the way in which environmental burdens are distributed unevenly along racial and socioeconomic lines. Biden will right these wrongs and stand up to fossil fuel companies who disproportionately harm communities of color and low-income communities.”
Biden diagnoses is subconjunctival hemorrhage which probably caused the blood in Joe Biden’s eye, according to my internet expertise.
According to WebMD, it does report that a broken blood vessel in the eye is sometimes called a “Subconjunctival Hemorrhage.”
So, is broken blood vessels only cause for concern for voters to select him for the high office?
The Washingoton Examiner reminded its readers of the 76 year old Biden’s long been plagued by health issues.
In 1988, he suffered an aneurysm that burst and required him to undergo emergency surgery. The then-senator was so close to death that a Catholic priest began preparing to administer the sacrament of last rites.
Months later, surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it burst. Biden then took a seven-month leave from the Senate following the surgery. Describing the operation, he once said, “They literally had to take the top of my head off.”
Jill Biden said in her recently released autobiography Where the Light Enters that, at the time, she feared her husband would never be the same. “Our doctor told us there was a 50-50 chance Joe wouldn’t survive surgery,” she wrote. “He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech.”
Doctors removed a benign polyp during a colonoscopy in 1996. In 2003, Biden had his gallbladder removed.
He suffers from asthma and allergies and takes a prescription drug to lower his cholesterol. He has also taken medication for an enlarged prostate.
Biden hasn’t disclosed his medical history since 2008, when doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat.
