If you think the 2020 situation involving Biden’s health, feels eerily familiar to the 2016 situation involving Hillary’s health, you’re spot on.
Both Hillary and Joe appear to be very sickly people, but the media and Democrats shrug it off, and downplay growing concerns from the public.
Yep, it feels like 2016 all over again.
And just like Hillary, Great Grandpa Joe is in deep trouble.
Not only has the embattled frontrunner had another terrible week – fraught with questions over his “mental fitness,” another creeptacular grabbing incident, and blood-soaked eyes – now, right on cue, demands are growing to see the candidates medical records.

Biden’s left eyeball filled with blood as he discussed climate change.
I'm a nurse, a broken blood vessel in the eye could be caused by high B/P, blood thinners/strain. He hasn't released medical records since 2008.
Wait for it, the MSM blames Trump for making Joe see red. pic.twitter.com/g3wsIY5lOL

When Biden’s eye pooled with blood during the 7-hour CNN Climate Festivus, concerns over the elderly candidates health grew even more intense.
It’s gotten so bad, that Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume was one of the first pundits to suggest that Biden’s “gaffes” are more akin to senility rather than run-of-the-mill blunders.
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume suggested that 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden is suffering from creeping senility.
Responding to Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s assessment that Biden, 76, seemingly doesn’t even want to be president, Hume said, “I think he’s always wanted to be president. He has tried it before repeatedly, right? Hasn’t worked out. I think now perhaps he thinks it’s his turn.” Hume went on to say that Biden’s gaffe-prone style has been a problem for him in the past, but that his more recent blunders likely indicate something more serious.

However, the Biden camp is stonewalling, and refusing to even address his blood-soaked eye, let alone discuss Great Grandpa Joe’s medical records.
Yes, this all feels very familiar, and I think we already know how this story is going to end.
Democratic front-runner Joe Biden was speaking at a televised town hall Wednesday when the corner of his left eye appeared to fill with blood, bringing attention away from the issue of climate change at a time when his campaign is already batting back scrutiny about his age and health.
The eye issue likely isn’t serious and will go away on its own after a few days, but it came after reporters have been asking Biden about whether his age will get in the way of his pursuit of the White House and followed a string of verbal miscues. Biden is 76, and if elected he would be the oldest person ever to occupy the Oval Office, older than Ronald Reagan at the end of his second four-year term.
By the time any second Biden term ended, he would be 86, uncharted territory for the presidency.
“Hopefully, this is no big deal,” tweeted Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate, about Biden’s eye. “That said, it’s not helping Joe Biden — a man who desperately needs to dispel the idea that his age and health are 2020 concerns.”
Biden hasn’t disclosed his medical history since 2008, when doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat. It has already been reported that he battles with asthma and allergies, and, like Trump, takes a prescription drug to lower his cholesterol. Biden also has taken medication for an enlarged prostate and had his gallbladder removed in 2003.
In rarer cases, such pooling of blood is a sign that a patient’s blood thinners need to be adjusted. But Steinemann, who also teaches ophthalmology at the MetroHealth System in Cleveland, Ohio, stressed that for eye bleeding, as with much of medicine, the “common causes are the common explanations.”
The Biden campaign has not disclosed whether the former vice president takes blood thinners, a common medication for older Americans, and neither he nor any of the other candidates have yet released their medical records. The campaign declined to offer a comment on the record. Trump released little information about his annual physical this year.
Biden’s most serious health issues happened more than 30 years ago, when he had an aneurysm that burst and caused him to undergo emergency surgery. Months later, surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it burst.
If Biden is on blood thinners, it wouldn’t be on account of his aneurysms, as the two are not related. Blood thinners help to prevent strokes, while aneurysms happen when the walls of an artery become weak, causing them to bulge and sometimes burst.
More recently, Biden’s verbal blunders have drawn headlines. He said poor kids are “just as bright” as white kids, claimed he was vice president in 2018 during the Parkland massacre, mixed up Iowa and Vermont, and referred to Margaret Thatcher, who left office in 1990 and died in 2013, as British prime minister instead of Theresa May.
Trump has accused Biden of “not playing with a full deck,” and Biden has lashed back. He has raised the president’s comments about the trade war with China, in which Trump called himself the “chosen one” to take on the fight, and said Trump was feeling under pressure after a majority of economists predicted the economy would soon lapse into recession.
