Joe Biden has a long repertoire of stories he likes to tell people, including some that clearly are made up because they could not have happened as he describes.
But now he's gone over the edge, with a "weirder' narrative about a nurse who would "whisper in his ear."
She would "actually breath on me to make sure there was a human connection," he now claims.
It was in a column at PJMedia that Robert Spencer wondered about Biden's latest.
"Old Joe Biden has been in politics for over half a century, and before the onset of his dementia, he could be a fluid and occasionally effective public speaker, although he was never as charming or compelling as he clearly believed himself to be. But as he has aged, the doddering corruptocrat who pretends to be president of the United States has lost whatever ability he ever had to move an audience.
"Now, more often than not, he tries for an emotional effect and only manages to come off as weird, as with his bizarre habit of whispering points he wants to give particular emphasis. But Old Joe has never been weirder than he was on Tuesday in Virginia Beach," he wrote.
The story apparently related to a time in 1988 when he suffered two brain aneurysms.
He said, "You lie there in the ICU, which I’ve done for a long time, and you look at those machines. And you know, if the line goes flat, that it’s over. But you just get tired. You don’t care."
Then he recalled "Pearl Nelson."
"She’d come in and do things that I don’t think you learn in medical scho— in nursing school. She’d whisper in my ear. I didn’t — couldn’t understand her, but she’d whisper, and she’d lean down. She’d actually breathe on me to make sure that I was — there was a connection, a human connection," he claimed.
Further, she brought her own pillow from home for him, he said.
"If anything, the people in the audience at Virginia Beach’s Kempsville Recreation Center were scratching their heads and wondering what this odd and downright creepy story actually meant. Pearl Nelson breathed on Biden, so as to give him a human connection? Where was his wife? Where were his children? Why weren’t they providing any human connection? Why not just hold Old Joe’s hand or give him a pat on the arm for a human connection, rather than breathe on him?" Spencer wrote.
It wasn't even the first time Biden has told the tale. Spencer noted that in 2020, the story included multiple nurses.
"One nurse responded, 'That’s a new one. 35 years in nursing and I stayed as far away from patients’ nostrils as I could. I think after surgery on brain aneurysms We all might remember things that didn’t happen or it’s simply MisRemembered. I can’t comprehend the pillow comment," Spencer related.
