During a speech on Tuesday as he was saying farewell to the state of Delaware, former Vice President Joe Biden started crying while trying to quote Irish poet James Joyce.
“James Joyce was said to have told a friend, that when it comes his time to pass, when he dies, he said: ‘Dublin will be written on my heart.’” Biden said as he started whimpering.
“Well, excuse the emotion, but when I die, Delaware will be written on my heart,” Biden said.

Biden does not appear to be well.
During a speech in Delaware last Saturday, Biden introduced his “science team.” The former VP explained that the team would be focusing on Covid-19, climate change, technology, the economy and the “long-term health of science and tech” in the United Stares.
“We’re going to lead with science and truth,” Biden said during the speech. “We believe in both.”
Kamala Harris also joined in to shame “climate change deniers.”
“The science behind climate change is not a hoax. The science behind the virus is not partisan. The same laws apply, the same evidence holds true regardless of whether or not you accept them,” Kamala Harris said.
Towards the end of the speech as Biden was trying to leave, the former Vice President appeared to have a lost and disoriented look on his face.
While Democrats are attempting to remove President Trump from office with the 25th Amendment, it appears that the amendment may apply more to Biden.
Check out what RT.com reported:
With impeachment articles against him set to hit the House floor this week, and with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushing for Trump’s cabinet to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office on grounds of unfitness, Trump was defiant during a visit to the US-Mexico border in Texas on Tuesday.
“The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me, but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration,” Trump told reporters. “As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for.”
As the president spoke, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives was preparing to vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to trigger the amendment and oust Trump. If the resolution fails, the Democrats will bring articles of impeachment to the floor, accusing Trump of “incitement of insurrection,” after his supporters forced their way into the US Capitol in Washington, DC, last Wednesday.
Trump’s remarks seemingly implied that Republican lawmakers could use the same move on Joe Biden should they retake Congress in 2024. Pelosi herself sought to make the process easier back in October when she introduced a bill that would create a commission that could determine a president’s fitness for office and remove them if necessary.
During his speech on Tuesday, Trump also dismissed the latest impeachment effort against him as a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
However, Trump also acknowledged that Biden would soon take office, and warned of the supposed consequences of rolling back his administration’s immigration restrictions. Should border controls be relaxed, Trump warned of a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration.
Trump’s speech was his first address to the public since he was banished from every major social media platform following the events on Capitol Hill. Trump did not complain at length about the ban, but declared that “free speech is under assault like never before.”
