On Wednesday, during a town hall event on climate change with CNN, Joe Biden’s left eye suddenly began filling with blood.
As of yet, no statement has been released by Biden’s campaign to explain exactly what happened. So the cause still remains a mystery.
And the news is causing a lot of publications to try to explain the medical issue for themselves. For instance, the famous fact-checking website called Snopes gave their take on the situation:
“It’s not clear what caused the incident… Some news reports speculated that the footage showed the aftermath of a blood vessel bursting in Biden’s eye, something that is relatively quite common and ‘usually harmless,’ according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Burst blood vessels in the eye can be caused by straining, coughing or sneezing, but can also be linked to underlying health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or the use of blood-thinning medications. Complications from the use of contact lenses can also cause blood vessels in the eye to break.”
The worst part about all of this is that the liberal media did NOT report it. According to Newsbusters, even CNN didn’t run the story. “Neither did ABC, CBS, NBC, or PBS. Even The New York Times and The Washington Post skipped it.”
According to them, the only person who seemed to talk about the issue was a certain person named Deborah Norville on her show Inside Edition:
“The Bloody Eye wasn’t Earth-shattering news. But some wondered if it suggested a health problem for Biden. It wasn’t Hillary Clinton collapsing in the September 11 ‘heat.’ But are these media giants that defensive? Deborah Norville and her show Inside Edition reported it, in a non-sensational way, and with a medical expert saying it was absolutely no big deal. It was a little ‘subconjunctival hemorrhage,’ which can suggest high blood pressure, but it usually goes away ‘all by itself.'”
The fact that Biden’s medical condition seems so minor is exactly why everyone expected him to respond to the issue – but he hasn’t yet.
It’s clear that Biden and his campaign are just trying to pretend that nothing happened to keep up appearances of strong health. That seems to be the liberal media’s strategy as well.
At this point, I think it’s pretty obvious that Democrats are scared. They know that Biden is their best shot against Donald Trump in 2020. So they’re purposely refusing to report anything negative about him because they’re afraid they might accidentally derail his campaign.
That definitely wouldn’t be a stretch.
