Joe Biden's Eye Unexpectedly Started to Fill with Blood during His CNN Climate Town Hall Appearance

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden sparked concerns from supporters after his eye filled with blood during his appearance on CNN Climate Town Hall.

The 76-year-old former US vice president was discussing efforts to lower global carbon emissions when the outward corner of his left eye turned red, as shown in a video uploaded on YouTube.

“Maybe I should have been frightened at this point, but I felt calm. In fact, I felt becalmed, like I was floating gently in the wide-open sea."

According to TODAY, Biden appeared to have experienced subconjunctival hemorrhage, which the U.S. National Library of Medicine defined as “a bright red patch appearing in the white of the eye.”

Someone having this phenomenon will not immediately notice it because it is not painful, and it does not change their vision.

ANEURYSMS IN 1988

It was not the first time Biden’s health issues surfaced publicly. In 1988, while serving as a senator, he had two emergency surgeries for brain aneurysms.

He wrote about these life-threatening aneurysms in his book, “Promises to Keep.”

“Maybe I should have been frightened at this point, but I felt calm. In fact, I felt becalmed, like I was floating gently in the wide-open sea. It surprised me, but I had no real fear of dying. I’d long since accepted the fact that life’s guarantees don’t include a fair shake.”

Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Biden served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. Prior to that, he served as a senator from 1973 to 2009, representing Delaware. He is now running for president in the 2020 election under the Democratic Party.

Viewers who watched Biden’s appearance on CNN Climate Town Hall quickly expressed opinions on social media.

"No matter politics, this is horrifying! Joe Biden needs medical attention!" a person wrote, as reported by Pop Culture.

Another person was less serious, writing, "I log off for 2 HOURS to watch a movie and I come back and Joe Biden apparently contracted the rage virus live on stage..."

UNTIMELY TWEET

On Twitter, Biden tweeted what seemed to be an untimely message: “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.”

A Twitter user replied to the tweet, “Don’t turn a Bloodshot eye either.” 

Back in 2018, Biden said that he is “the most qualified person in the country” to be the next president of the United States.

“I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life,” he said.
