The Changing Face of Joe Biden
We can all agree the facelift was a mistake. Right? Let's just get it out on the table right now. The facelift was a huge mistake.
In 2006, Joe Biden had the look of an aging elder statesman. Deep laugh lines, the beginning of jowls. The natural progression of a face that's seen a lot of laughter and a lot of fights in Congress and the usual ravages of time.
But around 2008, Biden's eyes and eyebrows had been pulled up so tightly, they became square. Evil looking. Thankfully, they drooped again.
By 2017 when he swore Kamala Harris into the Senate, he againhad the look of a creepy grandpa, had gained a little weight to fill out his face and developed one heck of a turkey gobbler.
It comes to us all eventually. Ah, Gravity, thou art a heartless bitch!
And now? Four years later and ten pounds lighter at the age of seventy-eight, instead of the wrinkly, craggy, rugged look of an elderly gentleman, Joe's face and neck are taut and tight reminding one very much of Jessica Tandy in Driving Miss Daisy.
The changing face of Joe Biden, as well as his suddenly attached earlobes, has led many conservatives, including President Trump himself, to wonder aloud in the video below if the schmo in the White House isn't Joe Biden at all. Theories run the gamut from "Joe's being played by an actor" all the way to "He's a DeepFake CGI" or even...wait for it...a clone.
I'm agnostic on the topic but you're entitled to your own opinion.
It's kinda fun to freak yourself out thinking about it!
