Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to have a blood vessel burst in his left eye during CNN’s town hall on climate change.
According to WebMD, a broken blood vessel in the eye, also known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage, can be caused by multiple things, including high blood pressure and excessive straining.
The Washington Examiner explains how “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.”
An aneurysm bursting is a blood vessel bursting, a blood vessel bursting is what caused the blood to fill his eye. Biden is likely dealing with severe health issues that he needs to get taken care of. Brain aneurysms and subconjunctival hemorrhages very often have the same cause. But, as sad as it is, it doesn’t really matter if Biden is alive or dead, the DNC establishment would most likely push him forward in the polls.
