During CNN’s town hall on climate change, Joe Biden’s left eye appeared to have just begun filling up with blood.
This would have been caused by a rupturing blood vessel, also known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage. This could be caused by a number of things ranging from high blood pressure, blood thinners, or even straining.
Biden has dealt with some serious health problems for decades. It’s a wonder he’s even still alive.
But this should cause the left who are leaning toward voting for Biden to consider his health condition. He already appears to be suffering from Alzheimer’s. The things he says suggests that he doesn’t have the best thinking faculties any longer either.
When Donald Trump was running for the Republican nomination, everyone was up in arms about hit fitness. They found out that he was healthy as a horse and couldn’t say anything else about it. But Biden…not so much. He’s old and filled with health problems.
For goodness sakes, he’s literally got blood filling up his eyeball on live TV!
Uh, hey guys. Joe Biden’s eye filled with blood while onstage at the CNN town hall.

According to The Washington Examiner,
Biden, 76, has 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. He has described the operation as “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 also 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.
