Do you remember the creepy Joe Biden “hairy legs” video? In case you need a reminder, he had said “I love kids jumping on my lap.” He talked about kids stroking his legs with his hair that “turned blonde” in the sun and stood up, as he stared down at the little kids next to him in the video. It was so creepy that people even made animated videos about it. This is the man that wants to be the next President of the United States, and this time around he has said something even creepier. Somehow.
In a recent video, Biden was talking about his experience after having two brain aneurysms in 1988 and two brain surgeries, at least one at Walter Reed Hospital. “I had nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving.” Wait, what?
Again, what is Biden talking about? Breathing into his nostrils? Nurses have weighed in on this and no, it’s not a thing. One tweet from a nurse read “In the 41 years I’ve been nursing I’ve never done that to any patients. Not even ones in brain & spinal cord injury units who required repeated stimulation throughout the day to wake them from comas. The only time I breathed into a patient’s nose was when I resuscitated a newborn.”
Other nurses and nurse practitioners have weighed in that they have never heard of anyone with a medical background breathing up a patient’s nostrils to get them going after a brain injury. They explained that if a person isn’t moving, there still isn’t any protocol for nostril resuscitation, especially a medically compromised patient who is prone to infections while hospitalized. Also, why would a nurse be whispering into his ear about pillows? There’s too many questions and not enough answers here.
Even Donald Trump Jr. wrote about it on Twitter attaching the confusing Biden video with it. “I’m no RN, but I can pretty definitively say this is not something a medical professional did. Enough. When does this get classified as elder abuse? The guy is not there anymore,” he tweeted.
It’s already really creepy enough when a guy likes to dwell on weird personal contact with children, but now nurses in a hospital setting? I would love to hear Dr. Ben Carson’s take on this little known resuscitative technique…
Biden’s dementia is getting to the point where the Democratic Party and his family should be held accountable for letting this play out in the public eye.
Several medical professionals responded on Twitter that these are the early signs of dementia. Jumbling memories from who knows where into thought and mentally declining with each video released.
It’s a weird time…but Biden is making it even weirder. This is perhaps one of his most bizarre tales to date and that’s saying a lot.
