On Monday, the White House released a pre-recorded speech from Joe Biden that was incredibly bizarre and has raised many eyebrows. Throughout the 11-minute speech, recorded for the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives Conference, Biden spoke very slowly and looked like he was struggling to keep his eyes open.
The video was sloppily spliced together, likely because he couldn’t get through the full speech without error.
Take a look at the odd editing job done by the White House in the Tweet below:

Sleepy Joe spent most of the speech talking in such a bland tone that it seems he was even putting himself to sleep. Suddenly, at the 8:27 mark of the speech, the video cuts to a new, more zoomed-in frame, and Biden is now bug-eyed, talking louder, and hardly blinking.
At one point, Biden doesn’t blink for about a minute-and-a-half.

White House: If you don't blink for the whole video, we'll give you ice cream

It could be that Biden is tired from being infected with COVID, and it could be that his handlers pumped him full of drugs to wake him up. It’s not entirely clear what happened here, but the sudden shift in Biden’s demeanor is quite shocking.
The video itself is a hilarious must-watch (fast forward to 8:00 to see the hilarious transition to bug-eyed Biden).
