Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s left eye appeared to fill up with blood as he answered a question during CNN’s climate town hall on Wednesday night.

Biden was answering a question about fracking when the blood suddenly became noticeable.

As he turned away from the camera to take a question about China’s role in carbon emissions, the blood in his eye was easy to spot. — Daily Mail

[BIDEN’s false teeth have fallen onto his lectern]

LESTER HOLT: Vice-President Biden, do you need a moment?

SPEECH ON EVE OF IOWA CAUCUSES, DES MOINES, FEB. 2, 2020

BIDEN: Folks, I gotta apologize, I was so eager to talk to you today that ran up to the stage and I spilled a great, big cup of iced tea on my pants. Really big, a Big Gulp from 9-11. 7-9-11. It, the store. So that’s what this godawful mess is, and when you read a lot of malarkey about it in the papers you who tell ‘em old Joe says it ain’t so! And the same goes for that chocolate cake I sat on!

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, MARCH 23, 2020

BIDEN: And that’s another thing. Everything is so negative, everybody’s so negative. With the internet and Twitter and the press. Making fun of people’s misfortunes. Their “gaffes.” Always tearing one another down. What’s happened to us? As a nation? We’re America, dammit! We should be building each other up! Pumping each other up! Reaching for the skies! Going to the moon, to Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, which, dammit, is still a planet to Joe Biden! We’ve got to have faith, America! We've got to — got to —

[He begins to wobble; comes around the lecture and lurches forward]

CHUCK TODD: Mr. Vice-President? Mr. Vice-President?

BIDEN: This is it, Neilia! It’s the big one! I'm comin’ to join ya, honey!

[Paramedics rush the stage.]
