  • Jacob Simpson says:

    they’re trying to set up his run already, damn oligarchs

    • Lisa Czyzniejewski says:

      You are a complete idiot. Why would MITCH MCCONNELL ( you know, a REPUBLICAN) try to set up Joe Biden to run in 4 years?   McConnell has done nothing but put Biden down for the past 8 years. However, finally, the man shows an inkling of humanity and names a very important part of the bill after Biden’s son who died from cancer a few years back. Lear to read before you post Simpleson.

    • Jacob Simpson says:

      @Lisa Czyzniejewski have you noticed the flood of articles shooting him up for a run in 2020?

    • Areanyusernamesleft says:

      Jacob Simpson some one is afraid that Joe Biden could defeat Trump in 2020. And they should be, had Biden be in the general election in 2016 he would have wiped the floor with Trump. While not a “revolutionary” choice like Bernie Sanders, Biden actually addresses the economic issues that the working class cares about without Trump’s division and bigotry, and has done so for his entire political career, also he doesn’t have anything close to the amount of baggage (deserved and not) that the Clintons have.

    • Areanyusernamesleft says:

      @Jacob Simpson, well perhaps it is your manner, your personal idiom as it were. 😉

    • BigGuyBoleslaw says:

      I think Hillary should have asked Joe Biden to stay on as VP. She would have won PA and MI for sure with him.

  • Lyle Fox says:

    fucker’s a liar, just trying to steal people’s attention. YOUR TIME HAS COME TO AN END FALSE DICTATOR.

    • Allan Garcia says:

      Lyle Fox, Do you even know the definition of a dictator?

    • Lets Say It says:

      there is no evidence to suggest he is a dictator, and can you not see that he is watching over a DEMOCRATIC Process, don’t spread hate for an individual doing his job, in no way did he try to steal peoples attention, that is what you are doing and it is shameful.
      I hope you learn to use your brain one day otherwise you’re just a waste of space and resources.

    • Lisa Czyzniejewski says:

      Who Biden?  Or the thing that is coming into office. You talk about dictator… just wait.

    • The INTUITIVE Guitarist says:

      +Lisa Czyzniejewski exactly …

    • The INTUITIVE Guitarist says:

      +Allan Garcia the fkng dipshit just elected a dictator

  • michael andrews says:

    i dont even like biden but this was nice.

  • Linda Fukuyu says:

    I’m so glad that Those Crooked Uselss Politicians are OUT !!  Haleluya !!

    • Linda Fukuyu says:

      @Aventedor 2013 I think you are in denial and talk rubbish ! I hope you’re out of the unemployment soon. And, you will be begging for Donald Trump to give you a job .. ha !

    • NeuKaiser says:

      Linda Fukuyu Ok you know what it’s not worth talking to you if you can’t look at the facts.

    • excel366 says:

      Linda Fukuyu where do you get your news from?

    • Veteran Child says:

      Linda Fukuyu You liveyour live uninformed and believe crackpots like Alex Jones.

    • Ryan Gilligan says:

      I know that you’re an embarrassing troll, but shut your mouth to things that you don’t understand. One of them being able to judge great character in people.

  • Jeff Zylfi says:

    Linda…please get educated prior to your statements.

  • sheraton gallacher says:


    • Josh says:

      sheraton gallacher Americans don’t care about Ukraine, only Russians.

  • Anita Breslin says:

    Everyone loves Joe, even the goat talking in the beginning

    • Matt Newman says:

      I read that first as “greatest of all time” and got all uppity. Hilarious.

    • John Calvin says:

      If only people loved Joe as much as he loves 12 and 6 yr old girls.

    • Jima Alex says:

      Anita Breslin 😂😂😂😂😂 Salvage.

  • ds12z says:

    If only McConnell had gotten cancer instead. What a better country this would be.

    • FactsOfDeath says:

      That is a terrible thing to say.

    • Lester Juice says:

      The tolerant left huh

    • Fahad Shahid says:

      Well he’s going to jail so from what I have heard, it’s worse

    • ajtronic says:


    • Anne Liesveld says:

      Try to just respect dignity of the day.

  • Timothy Doyle - The Golden Ones says:

    We don’t have better things to do in congress?

    • Veteran Child says:

      I guess it’s better than the usual gridlock.

    • Danny G says:

      Since when is an act of compassion and humanity a waste of time? The problem is that this doesn’t happen enough. This type of thing breaks down political walls and makes people more open to cooperate. That’s something seriously lacking in our leaders today.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      It’s a half day. Plus all these people are watching beau struggle and joe lose himself in loss. I think half day is fair.

  • scotty77 says:

    This bill contains many removals of personal choice where in your doctor can choose things for you without your consent in some cases. They buried this under $1.8 billion in cancer money because few will say no to that. And they’re pushing it through at the end of a presidential term because that’s always the easiest time to pass the really nasty stuff. I hope Trump plays his smoke and mirrors game on McConnell so bad that McConnell doesn’t know which way is up.

    • scotty77 says:

      What the hell is a “death panel?”

  • Merry Chase says:

    Just a casual McCain at 1:00 😀

    • Colin Corbitt says:

      James Merry Actually at 0:45

  • Z says:

    JOE Biden is the only good thing about obamas 8 year term

    • John Graves says:

      Aaron Perez amen to that!

    • Tabeazzz says:

      Aaron Perez not so sure, did you see that Vid of Obama singing call me maybe? that’s pretty funny.

    • Pablo Horteg says:

      The status of the economy means nothing? Pulling troops out of the bullshit in the middle east? 20 million more Americans have health insurance? Nah? Ignorant or blind partisan?

    • J N says:

      no, he did all that while being black so it didn’t count 😉

    • Aharon Lawrence says:

      Pablo Horteg does adding 9-10 trillion in debt also mean nothing?

  • Antonio Marron says:

    That moment when you realized it should have been Biden/sanders 2016

    • कट्टर हिन्दू says:

      That would’ve averted disaster

    • Mr. PG says:


    • Mynameisobnoxioslylong &ucan'tdonothinabtthematter says:

      Didn’t age well

    • Edward Nygma says:

      @Mynameisobnoxioslylong &ucan’tdonothinabtthematter Aged pretty well considering the partnership that seems to be blooming between Biden and Sanders.

    • Alex Paich says:


  • spidermonkey871 says:

    old Joe the child groper. sick, sick man.

  • BluePittsley says:

    That is a wonderful tribute …

  • ZENTOPIA says:

    talks about cancer, yet votes to get rid of Obamacare…. moron

    • NeuKaiser says:

      Ben Clausen Where is your plan?

    • ZENTOPIA says:

      Aventedor 2013 in his ass

    • zachos2 says:

      ZENTOPIA But they “want” to make a better plan, wanting and having are two different things.

    • TheEko says:

      ACA hardly covers anything that has to do with Cancer.

    • shaanmi says:

      this was passed under the 21century cures act, not Obama/aca. God forbid Ocare gets repealed, the cancer funding from this video/bill will remain.

  • Angel the fellow7 says:

    Mitch McConell actually does something good who knew?

    • Ronald Reagan says:

      Angel the fellow7 pretty much everyone that’s why he’s majority leader

    • Wyn Williams says:

      Ronald Reagan
      No he is majority leader because he is the biggest POS snake in the grass i the party (if you dont include trump of course)

    • Boom ds says:

      +Ronald Reagan Mitch McCOnnell may be the biggest weasel to ever grace US politics

    • कट्टर हिन्दू says:

      @Ronald Reagan he needs to GTFO Washington DC

  • colleen says:

    Poor man. No matter how you felt about him, it’s heartbreaking when a parent loses their child.

    John McCain showed up late

  • Bobby Bobby says:

    Mitch McConnell have enriched himself as a Congressman, but Joe didn’t.

  • zachos2 says:

    Cancer needs to be addressed universally until it’s defeated. If we can afford 90 billion dollars in slush for the military we can spend billions towards curing cancer.

  • mastshke says:

    after all the blocking these Republicans did.

  • spencer says:

    It’s a rare day when turtles exert human emotions.

    • Mr. Brawl Stars says:

      spencer stfu. The man served his country his entire life. Wtf did you do for yours? I get it that u don’t like him but u still have to show some fkn respect to ur elder, do u even know how hard it is to lose a child!? And also, wouldn’t you be fkn emotional if ur mom died right now!? I am ashamed of this world for having people like you in it!!

    • Andrew Gao says:

      @Mr. Brawl Stars YES!

    • Adam says:

      @Mr. Brawl Stars He has not served his country. He has served large corporations and his own personal wealth. He has done absolutely nothing for his home state except make it poorer while he keeps getting richer.

    • Mr. Brawl Stars says:

      Adam that sounds like the 45th president of the United States to me!

    • Adam says:

      @Mr. Brawl Stars you realise spencer is on about McConnell as he is known as a turtle. Dont worry I hate every bit of McConnell and Trump

  • Marcus Harmon says:


  • Rob Schmidt says:

    There are a great many things upon which I disagree with Mr Vice President Biden. That statement is as true as it is irrelevant. God bless him for his service to our nation. Even if from time to time I did not agree with him

    • Kiran Patel says:

      This is a very classy statement and I wish that both Republicans and Democrats can follow along with this anytime a transition of power occurs.

    • Greatest Fly says:

      I’d like to thank you for those words.

  • Colby Hodges says:

    Dumbest VP in U.S. history.

    • The American Crusader says:

      Lyndon Johnson was the dumbest VP in U.S. history.

    • Ryan Gilligan says:

      Really? What about Dan Quayle? Is it spelled potato or thbdhcnhujk?

  • Jbomnerdude 76 says:

    What did we do to deserve Joe Biden?

    • The American Crusader says:

      Voting for Obama.

    • EJSFilms2K says:

      Something wrong obviously.

  • Austin Henning says:

    As a hardcore right-wing libertarian Republican Paulbot, I don’t think there’s anyone I’d enjoy hanging out with more than Fmr. Vice President Joe Biden.

    • Pepi Os says:

      I said the same bro.

    • babytina says:

      He seems like a sweetheart

  • itsjustmyopinion says:

    Wrinkly old satan worshipping paedophile

  • James Murphy says:

    What a classy guy.

  • Chief Kurtz says:

    2:04 Gimme the goddam folder son.

  • weezie1971 says:

    Why can’t this kind of collegiality be preserved. Think how the Senate could be. Tragic.

  • Caged says:

    Biden should have ran. What would have happened if Beau Biden never died?

    • AlekWheeler says:

      Well Trump knew and knows Joe is legit. He’s the only democrat that he’s afraid of. He probably wouldve won

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      I can’t believe him running is your thought regarding him dying. Like serious. Even if he considered he has to be ready for enormity. You don’t get over losing a child.

  • John Morley says:

    John McCain wanders by at 0:46.

    • The American Crusader says:

      John, quit photobombing.

  • Pedro Zaragoza says:

    That’s what we need, statesmen who rise above party politics and place the nation above all.

    • Big John says:

      Renaming a bill isn’t putting the nation above party politics. It’s cheap propaganda to make them seem honorable, don’t fall for it

    • pigs18 says:

      To bad it’s not necessarily what we deserve.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      It’s a gesture. Get a grip. Trying to become a senator or president next year.

  • Pedro Zaragoza says:

    Thank God for these moments of cooperation. This is when we are Americans above all. One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

  • LUXURY BOX says:

    ❤️ Biden

  • Craig Esq says:

    Hopefully in late 2020, we will all get to hear these words: ‘President Elect Joseph Biden.’

    • Warren Rhinerson says:

      We most likely won’t based on the betting odds and historical precedent

  • Pat says:


    • John the Medic take 2 says:

      I personally think that (yes Mr. Biden raises his voice at times but definitely pretty chill for a politician) is a politician version of Mr. Rogers.

  • The American Crusader says:

    Did Mitch McConnell just act like a decent human being for once?

  • Moe Biden says:

    This buffoon crying like a woman shows why Beau is better off dead.

  • Helen Thomas says:

    However, it was overly generous to name this after Biden’s son.

  • Dennis Dwyer says:

    What do you mean by “He was also a Democrat? That’s one of the problem with Democracy!

    • CJ Hedberg says:

      “He was a Democrat, but he was ALSO available to anyone at anytime”. Listen to the clip before commenting.

  • ERM AV says:

    Biden loves his pizza 🍕

  • Jonathan schaefer says:

    Look at Mitch being a good man. Come on Mitch we need you to be this man more often

    • MELLO1102 says:

      Jonathan schaefer ..,You got that right.

    • SugarTomAppleRoger says:

      Good? Women are always fooled by this guy. Trump is an angel compared with this guy.

  • L.C. Street says:

    Mitch! You gotta do something about Trump man! Please!

  • Michael Thompson says:

    Trump was n

  • Michael Thompson says:

    Trump won

  • Christopher Mango says:

    The only noble thing Mitch McConnell has ever done.

  • Jetrick Policarpio says:

    This is the bipartisanship that is missing and should be sought by both sides of the aisle

    • chattiermike140 says:

  • Brian DiVincenzo says:

    God bless Joe… We need him in 2020…and had his son Beau not passed away…. We’d have Joe as Commander-in cheif

    • Anne Liesveld says:

    • MELLO1102 says:

      Anne Liesveld ..That would be awesome!

  • Phillip Beckman says:

    Biden changed history.

  • ajtronic says:

    As McCain walks by. 😢

  • awakeningspirit20 says:

    Pretty creepy to see McCain walk past the shot at 0:45 when McConnell is talking about the cancer that Beau had that later killed McCain.

    • Stinky Piece of Cheese says:


      Senator McCain at that point could have already had the very beginning of his glioblastoma. Its rather ominous in hindsight.
      Its an ugly, ugly disease.

    • Tanish Kumar says:

      @Stinky Piece of Cheese Hopefully, we can eradicate it off the face of this Earth.

    • Nicole Murphy says:

      I’m pretty sure it wasn’t *Beau Biden’s* cancer that a few years later would claim John McCain’s life, but rather, McCain’s *own* cancer that would be culpable for the deed.

      (And yeah, I know, I know: shame on me for nit-picking over a matter so trivial as syntax, in particular such an incredibly inconsequential solecism as yours, in so profoundly heartbreaking and momentous a context as that of a beautiful and uncommonly decent man’s untimely funeral. I’ll own that, I suppose. But…

      You gotta admit: the fact that I even *thought* to tender such an absurdly pedantic correction, especially in connection with *just* this sort of singularly tragic affair, is pretty damned funny. 😉

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      Ok. Ur right. Both dead of a disease that killed both pretty young. Even John was just 78 I think??

  • Joseph Dozier says:

    0:48 a wild McCain

  • Jamie Ross says:

    Look, When it comes to it. These guys disagree, but they are friends (and everyone hates Ted). The Sen. is not like congress. Its seems much more gentlemanlly, cordial, And they work together more. Thats why there is no Freedom Caucus . Thank god.

    The best thing that could happen is the house swing back dem and the Senate stay Rep. Then they might start working together and compromise – and the politics head ack to the centre after the last 10 years that started with things like the tea party.

  • Abe says:

    When they’re respectful
    And than Trump is president and their true personalities appear.

  • Shivu anir says:

    Love Mitch

  • Milk And Honey says:

    Never seen Mitch say something caring. Maybe it’s a clone?

    • Edward Nygma says:

      Yeah didn’t think McConnell had it in him to act human for once.

  • Gcode Mfg says:

    McCain did walk by, how ironic , old news being publicized for what? Just coverage to stay in news,? How low have they come.

  • Pepi Os says:

    I’m a Republican and I would be honored to vote for Biden

    • Adam says:

      @Justin Edwards the results in 2016 were within the margin of error of the polls. Biden will easily win

    • Justin Edwards says:

      @Adam whatever dude. I wouldn’t be so sure on that but whatever makes you feel better lefty

    • Siontix says:

      It’s okay, Justin, it was a fun experiment while it lasted. Democrats and Republicans will work together under President Biden and get us out of this Trump Recession.

    • Justin Edwards says:

      @Siontix lol are you really this stupid dude. im sorry but we are not in a recession plus trump didn’t cause the economy to slow down but we all know you liberals hate facts

    • Ernest Doucette says:

      @Devin McIntosh: Those Stimulus Payments Started in the Congress which is Mostly Democrats, Trump Agreed because his stocks are suffering! He does not Care that people are suffering too!

  • कट्टर हिन्दू says:

    0:45 Crazy to think that, unbeknownst to everyone, something lethal was growing in McCain’s brain #RIP

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      Yea look ar him at ten years on Clinton or bush and i think omg that could be Clinton or bush jr

  • Brian Baker says:

    That’s cool no matter who you support for president

  • Carla Costa says:

    F U Mitch McConnell. You are the cancer in this country.

  • post traumatic stress says:

    Why he needs to be PRESIDENT because he wants to end cancer. IT’S REAL because it’s not natural to lose a child. R.I.P. true patriotic family. WOW. GET TRUMP or he will damage everything OBAMA & BIDEN DID. Also, there’s no way I would vote for BILL CLINTON BACK IN THE OFFICE so yes, morality, choice, fidelity & love/grief matter to people. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one grossed out.

    You can see when the clerk read Beau’s name, Joe had to wipe a tear away… been nearly 4 years and its still emotional
