Prez contender Joe Biden's teeth appear to fall out during fiery Democratic debate
The former vice president was responding to a question by ABC host David Muir about standing up to the NRA when it happened.
Thursday night's Democratic debate featured several moments with the top ten 2020 presidential contenders hurling charges at each other. The most bizarre moment of the event was the one where former Vice President Joe Biden's teeth almost appeared to fall out during one of his responses. It happened when Biden was responding to a question by ABC host David Muir about standing up to the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Muir, during the debate, asked the Democrat frontrunner about a measure that aimed to expand background checks on guns failing on the Senate floor soon after the Sandy Hook massacre of 2012, asking him what would he do differently this time. "If you couldn’t get it done after Sandy Hook, why should voters give you another chance?” Muir asked.
Biden, however, for a moment, struggled to answer the question as he appeared to adjust his teeth in his mouth before answering. "Because I got it done before," the former Vice President said. "I’m the only one up here who has ever beat the NRA," he continued after seemingly regaining control of his teeth. "I’m the only one to ever beat the NRA nationally. I’m the guy who brought the Brady Bill into focus and became law."
Many people took note of the bizarre moment and took to social media, confirming whether they actually saw the presidential contender's teeth falling out on national television.
One Twitter user, Thor Benson, wrote: "Did... Joe Biden's teeth just almost fall out? Am I seeing things?" While another @thelogicalform said, "Joe Biden just pushed his teeth back in his mouth on national television." Another Twitter user, Barstool Sports, wrote: "Joe Biden’s teeth doing their best to jump right out of his mouth."
The former Vice President had another weird moment on September 12 when he accidentally called Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders "the president" during the third Democratic primary debate in Houston. Biden, however, quickly realized the gaffe and corrected himself saying "my friend" instead.
The latest Democractic debate saw top presidential contenders spar with each other as the candidates included, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Cory Booker, Senator Amy Klobuchar, former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke, and former entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
