Joe Biden Stares Vacantly as Wife Touts Him as ‘Next President’ - WATCH
Bizarre video of presidential candidate goes viral
A video of Dr. Jill Biden touting Joe Biden as the "next president" while he stares blankly stares into the camera has gone viral.
The clip, which has an unnerving atmospheric twinge, not too dissimilar to the beginning of a dark comedy, sees Biden frowning oddly as if he's been taken hostage.
In the video, the former second lady said:
And together, we’re just getting started. This moment reminds us that the presidency is about true leadership: having the forethought to prepare for the worst, the backbone to lead through chaos, the character to move beyond politics, and serve every American no matter where they live or what they believe.
Only one candidate in this election has all three: my husband, our next President of the United States: Joe Biden!

Throughout the video, Jill Biden appears like a desperate aging housewife on the verge of a nervous breakdown while trying to retain her husband's fading mental capacities before he disappears into the abyss of dementia.
At the end of the video, Biden smiles as his name is called, which is the only time he responds throughout the clip.
The video has reinforced suspicions that Biden is being pushed to run for president despite his advanced age.
If I was facing a constant stream of claims that I’m throwing my husband into the most stressful job in the world as his brain turns to tapioca pudding, I probably wouldn’t put out a video where I do all the talking and he looks like someone struggling to stand on his own. https://t.co/Wm0rQoZUOP— Jesse Kelly (@JesseKellyDC) April 27, 2020

Despite speculation mounting that the Democratic Party might try to find a way to replace Biden, he continues to rack up endorsements, with the latest being Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
But Joe Biden's wife seems to be doing everything she can to hold it together.
Last week, Jill Biden said she would "love it" if former first lady Michelle Obama agreed to be vice president.
Appearing Friday on CNN’s New Day, Jill Biden said Michelle Obama would make a "wonderful" Vice President.
Her comments come just days after former Vice President Biden said he would pick Michelle Obama "in a heartbeat" should she choose to run.
