President-elect Joe Biden talked about his death when he was delivering a farewell speech to his home in Delaware on Tuesday, Jan. 19, before he arrived in Washington for Inauguration Day.
During the speech at a National Guard center named for his late son, Biden paused for several moments. At one point, he was seen becoming emotional when he quoted Irish poet James Joyce to say goodbye to his adopted home state.
“James Joyce was said to have told a friend, that when it comes his time to pass, when he dies, he said: ‘Dublin will be written on my heart.’” Biden said.
“Well, excuse the emotion, but when I die, Delaware will be written on my heart,” he continued.

Biden turned 78 in November 2020.
“Biden is not well,” according to The Gateway Pundit associate editor Cristina Laila, who also said, “If Biden were a Republican there would be efforts to remove him with the 25th Amendment.”
There are concerns about Biden’s mental state. During his presidential campaign, Biden sometimes did not remember his name or forgot where he was.
In January last year, Biden spoke of his pride in his Irish heritage on the campaign trail by telling a crowd in Iowa, “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”
Former White House physician Ronny Jackson, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity in November, said that he was concerned that Biden does not have the mental capacity and the cognitive ability to serve as the commander in chief.
Biden became president-elect after Congress certified the electoral votes on Jan. 6.
