Joe Biden looked incredibly old as a much younger Eric Swalwell called on him to “pass the torch.”

In what seemed like a planned line, Rep. Swalwell recalled watching Biden as he was growing up and said, “Joe Biden was right when he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago,” as the camera cut to Biden who grimaced.
“He’s still right today,” Swalwell continued as the audience cheered.
“If we’re going to solve the issues of automation, pass the torch,” Swalwell said.
“If we’re going to solve the issues of climate chaos, pass the torch. If we’re going to solve the issue of student loan debt, pass the torch. If we’re going to end gun violence for families who are fearful of sending their kids to school, pass the torch,” he continued as Biden snickered.
Joe Biden is 76 years old. Eric Swalwell is 38.
