A 2018 clip of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is taking off on social media ― and it has people in tears.
As Biden turned to begin his remarks, Hixon’s son, Corey, runs over for a hug.
The clip shared by Democratic political operative Arun Chaudhary shows the former vice president’s response:
I’m one of those who frets that the election will be much closer than the polls indicate. That in a world where non-voters are never targeted by Dems, huge turnout could contain multitudes. So I’m dropping some old footage of Joe Biden here: pic.twitter.com/74UROClgbh

The resurfaced footage had Twitter users choked up:
I had never seen this clip before today, and now I’m sitting here wiping tears from my face. Joe Biden is a good man, and he is our only hope to heal and restore the soul of our nation. pic.twitter.com/l7IuFx75QV

Had to wipe my eyes too. That type of compassion comes from the soul. We have all needed that type of hug before.
I know I have. https://t.co/MSQprqH8z7
