Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has been known to make outrageous and shocking comments — but what he said this week should worry many Americans.
During an appearance Wednesday on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert, the former vice president said he would definitely appoint former President Barack Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Would you appoint him [Obama] to the Supreme Court?” asked Colbert.
“Hell yes!” Biden fired back to cheers from the liberal crowd. “I don’t think he’d do it but he’s fully qualified.”
Allowing Obama to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court would give the former president the opportunity to weigh in on the most important cases in the country.
Biden is obviously trying to ride Obama’s coat tails and use his former boss to increase the likelihood that he gets elected.
While Biden continues to speak highly of Obama every chance he gets, the former president has refused to endorse Biden.
Biden served as Obama’s vice president for eight years — but apparently Obama isn’t ready to endorse his VP.
The 76-year-old may currently be the Democratic frontrunner, but his 2020 campaign has been rocked recently amid allegations and rumors surrounding his mental and physical health.
During a CNN town hall Wednesday night on climate change, people noticed something was wrong with Biden’s left eye.
Biden’s left eye filled up with blood — and the disturbing moment was caught on video.
While it has not been confirmed, some have speculated that a blood vessel could have burst — which can be caused by several things, such as high blood pressure, excessive straining, or other factors.
Below is an image of Biden’s eye filled with blood, which provides a reminder of the long history of serious health issues for the 76-year-old presidential candidate.
Uh, hey guys. Joe Biden’s eye filled with blood while onstage at the CNN town hall.

The video of Biden’s eye filled with blood is hardly the first time there have been serious questions about his mental and physical health.
Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a left-wing psychiatrist, told Fox News host Mark Levin last week that “it seems like it’s not so perfect” when asked about the former VP’s mental health.
In fact, even Biden is apparently aware that there are serious issues with his own mental capacity.
Dr. Neal Kassell defended the 76-year-old Democrat presidential candidate and claimed that Biden is “as sharp as he was 31 years ago.”
Kassell performed surgery on Biden over 30 years ago, but he wants voters to believe that the 76-year-old candidate is still perfectly healthy.
In the past, Biden has suffered two life-threatening aneurysms, one of which required emergency surgery and another involved removing the top of his skull, reports the The Washington Examiner.
Biden suffered an aneurysm in 1988 that reportedly nearly killed him.
Just a few months after that, Biden — who was serving in the U.S. Senate at the time — was forced to take a seven-month leave of absence to have a second aneurysm removed before it burst.
“They literally had to take the top of my head off,” Biden said at the time, referring to the surgery.
In 1996, the Examiner notes that doctors removed a mass from him during a colonoscopy.
The former vice president had his gallbladder removed in 2003.
Most certainly wish nothing but the best for Biden, but there are legitimate concerns surrounding what appears to be his ailing health.
And now that he’s running for president, these are important issues that he needs to address with the American people.
