Let's not kid ourselves that election campaign speeches are much better than that.  Not in terms of truth content anyway. Laughing  Biden's dull rambling chat that contains no lies is probably morally better.


At least the audience clapped at one stage. Something must have clicked with them. And no one passed out, like that cop did whilst listening to Boris drone on. [vid's on YT]

Seen the prime minister herself [Thatcher] pass out mid-sentence during HER own speech. Out cold ! - and that was the only memorable part!  

Seen another instance where a US airforce chief fainted mid-sentence too.

Drama, drama, drama. Yes this is real. 3489511464

I once collapsed during a live TV interview at an important farming event. The outside temperature was 93 degrees at the time and I had already been in those conditions for several hours.

I was defending what was a particularly contentious and unpopular agricultural activity at the time, and I have no doubt that my detractors were rolling around in amusement too.

It is all too easy to ridicule someone who is dealing with a situation that you yourself probably have never been called upon to confront.

No...my question goes back to the OP, What was the question put to Mr. Biden? Without the context, we have no way of judging if he is sane or senseless. The clip has hidden the context from us.

No, it was more a case of gentle mirth at the sheer unexpected drama of it all.

If pushed to justify myself, I could say it looked as if their own boring words drove them into a total stupor.

I have yet to recover from Didge's almighty meltdown when I giggled at folks being too afraid to dine in a roomful of cops. So I'm not quite ready for fresh chastisement over my choice of smilies. Fainting is harmless, never fatal, I've fainted 2 or 3 times myself in weird circs .

We can't tell from the clip shown. The clip started and ended in midsentence, so obvs it was extracted from a longer speech.

Dunno. It's YOUR vid. Smile   I mentioned fainting cos its very topical, our politicians are also campaigning nonstop right now & someone did faint whilst listening to a speech.

Yes. That's my point. When someone presents a deliberately distorted picture, or leaves something out to the same effect, you have to suspend judgment until s/he comes clean.

Also, I question the motives. Dishonesty is always a sign of consciousness-of-guilt.

Nope.
However it's no shame for a politician to stand there rambling on about nothing in particular. Especially considering that the alternative is to make bogus, untrue pledges just to win votes.

Some of our politicians have  got it  down to a fine  art. They can stand there droning on pointlessly for literally hours & hours about absolutely nothing. A well known trick used  to block out new  legislation. Just google the art of FILIBUSTERING !

The alternative could be cogent speech.

Not talking about kids rubbing his hairy legs and sitting on his lap.

He's not a bad guy for a politician. He's just well past his prime.
