TR 219 - You're Not Going to Believe This!

Some people are afraid to ask the hard questions... I'm not one of them. Are you?

Be honest.

What I’m about to ask you may stretch the mental fabric beyond the point of comfort—this is not a question for the faint of heart. But I just have to ask:

What’s different between these two pictures?

#1 — From Everything You Might Not Know About Joe Biden's Record on Small Business sourced at

Joe Biden Is Running for President: Here's His Record on Small Businesses, Free College, and ...

#2 — From Former vice president Joe Biden gets a makeover before election sourced at the

Former vice president Joe Biden gets a makeover before election

Okay, okay… I know it’s a silly question… but did you notice the ears?

Let’s take another run at it and compare a couple more pictures:

#3 — With lobes?

Barack Obama Finally Endorses Joe Biden for President

#4 — Without lobes?

At the risk of being weird, just one more set:

#5 — Biden with Obama (has lobes?):
Joe Biden claims Barack Obama repeatedly discouraged him from running for US president

#6 — Biden with Harris (has no lobes?):
Watch live: Biden, Harris appear together for first time since VP selection  | The Hill

What do you think?

Like I said, it’s hard to believe, but these pictures (and there are many, many more) seem to show two different people. As far as I know, it is not possible to switch back and forth between free dangling and attached earlobes. That would be a special trick.

But here’s the thing: Even if this was true—even if these are not the same person—what does that mean? What are the implications? What would you do?

Would you rush out and tell someone, “Hey, that guy’s not my president—he doesn’t even have ear lobes!”

Would you file a report with some government agency and ask them to look into it? Would you write a letter to your congressional representatives and demand an explanation? Would you blast it all over social media in hope spreading the word?

I have to say: I don’t recommend taking any such action!

Just sit with it for a bit. Flick back and forth. Do your own looking.

Then sit with it for a bit.

What does this mean?
