It’s a somewhat unusual (and a little disturbing) scene that Joe Biden proposed this Tuesday, November 3. Present in Philadelphia to salute his supporters in the race for the White House, the Democratic candidate wished to present his two little daughters, Natalie and Finnegan. But the 77-year-old was wrong. And not just … “Let me introduce you to my son, Beau Biden whom you elected to the Senate,” he said, hugging Natalie. Problem: Beau Biden was never elected to the Senate and, most importantly, he died in 2015 at the age of 46 from brain cancer.

This is not the first time since the start of the campaign that Joe Biden has mistaken his names. On Super Tuesday night, he confused his wife and sister before correcting himself, by himself. Moreover, during a debate between him and outgoing President Donald Trump, a few weeks ago, he raised his hand after a question to indicate that he had not understood it. Across the Atlantic, the age of the Democratic candidate is causing a lot of talk. It must be said that, if he is elected this Tuesday, November 3, he will become the oldest president in the history of the United States.
Joe Biden has lost his wife and two of his children
As a reminder, Joe Biden has not had an easy life. In 1972, the future vice-president of Barack Obama lost his wife, Neila Hunter, and his daughter, Naomi, then aged less than a year, in a traffic accident. His two sons, Beau and Hunter, were seriously injured. In 2015, it was therefore the death of Beau Biden, Attorney General of Delaware, suffering from brain cancer, that Joe Biden was confronted with. A victory over Donald Trump on November 3 would be little consolation for the man who aspires to become the 46th President of the United States of America.
