President Joe Biden published a video of his virtual speech to the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives convention on Monday, six days after initially disclosing his positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
The president appeared and sounded obviously sick in the video.
Biden’s voice was much deeper than normal, and he had a confused-expression child’s on his face. However, those weren’t the most startling features displayed in the film.
Biden kept his eyes wide open for a period of 42 seconds in the video without batting an eye.
Brave women and men in uniform across America should never forget that the defeated former president of the United States watched January 6th happen and didn’t have the spine to act.

Even though the video published on Twitter had many cuts, the 42-second segment beginning at 0:41 seemed to be uncut.
According to Healthline, people blink 15 to 20 times on average each minute, thus zero blinks in a minute and a third is unusual.
To be fair, the president’s absence of blinking does not automatically indicate that he or she is ill. However, this perception was influenced by a wide range of factors.
Biden appeared to be actively trying to keep his eyes from shutting as they were forced wide open. His vacant look appeared to be piercing the teleprompter and into nothingness.
He did not blink for extended spans of time during a longer version of his speech that was posted on the White House YouTube account. There were also numerous editing changes.
These elements—along with the president’s raspy voice—proved that he wasn’t in good physical shape.
The White House has kept a relatively low profile on Biden’s illness ever since the coronavirus was first identified in him.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre avoided inquiries about why Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the president’s doctor, did not address the media the day after the diagnosis was made public.
REPORTER: "Why are we not hearing from Dr. O'Connor on this?"
KJP: "You've heard directly from him."
REPORTER: "No we haven't."
KJP: "Yes you have. You've heard from the letter. That is hearing directly from him." pic.twitter.com/OHbMqw9ke8

More on this story via The Western Journal:
O’Connor said in a letter on Tuesday that Biden’s “symptoms have now almost completely resolved” and he “feels well enough to resume his physical exercise regimen.”
In addition to the president’s strange delivery, the content of his speech to NOBLE was incredibly questionable.
