OMG. THe kid who stuttered. So touching and so brilliant to have him speak.

Shows so much about Joe that he took this kid under his wing and helped him with the stuttering issue.

13. His hand shook, but he handled himself beautifully. Wanna bet his confidence is much

stronger now that he's pulled this off. I really did get choked up watching him be so brave and effective.

3. I kept saying good job good job to him.

I am proud of him. Takes a lot to address a nation with a stutter.

19. Hello, from another Buckeye!

I was born in Ohio....raised on the Cuyahoga River, well, until I was 5.

Then we moved to Florida. But still a Buckeye at heart!

21. My dad is still in Florida and he is voting Biden as are his friends.

He is getting out the vote pretty good in his area, and people seem to be fed up with trump, so I am hopeful.

I live in Texas now, I know, I move a lot...lol. Now we're trying to turn Texas blue and we just might! Texas used to be a blue state and it will be again!

Go Texas!

12. Amazing Courage

That young man was just amazing and extremely brave to put himself out like that.

It's such a contrast to Republicans making fun of disabilities to the Democrats lifting up the sacred worth of every person.

17. I was crying

I have a grandson who stutters... much less after therapy, but it comes back when hes tired or nervous. But when he was little, he was made fun of for it.

22. I was so proud of that young man for having the courage to make a speech


On national television even though he stutters. He will be such an inspiration to others for his bravery. You could see it in his eyes. He knew he did a good thing! And good for Biden for taking the time to speak with him.
