Towards the end of last night’s debate, Joe Biden was caught red handed checking his watch, leading to an instant meme on social media.
Don Jr. tweeted “If you’re checking your watch in a debate you’re getting pummeled. Joe was just wanted out of there. He’s tired.”
He added “If Joe doesn’t have the energy to go 90 minutes how could he possibly run the country???”
America Rising wrote “Joe Biden checks his watch. Time to head back to the basement.”

The moment brought back memories of the disastrous moment when George H.W. Bush checked his watch during the 1992 debate.
Remember this 1992 debate? Pres GHW Bush checks his watch, taken as a sign he was feeling the heat & eager for it to end. He lost soon after. Thurs night in Nashville Joe Biden did the same. See how the media plays this slip. pic.twitter.com/b4UiBjvCp2
