An animated Bernie Sanders shocked Joe Biden during the Democratic Presidential debates then the senator from Vermont gesturing next to the face of the former VP.
Eagles with gazing eyes saw the moment of comic relief and shared it on social media, where thousands of Biden & # 39; s off-guard response shared.
The former vice-president appeared surprised when he saw Bernie's hand near his face as the Vermont senator exaggerated Biden & # 39; s personal space.
Thursday night's debates in Miami marked the conclusion of the two-day democratic debates to decide who would include Trump in the 2020 elections.

Social media users quickly joked about the moment without text, suggesting that & # 39; grandpa's reflexes are not what they were & # 39 ;.
Biden, Sanders and eight other candidates were confronted where they clashed about the economy, race, health care, immigration and even socialism.
The early leader of the Democratic Party, 76-year-old Biden, was forced to defend his record during the race in light of difficult questions from California Senator Kamala Harris, the only African-American on the podium.
That was only after he defended his age after jabs from one of the two millennial candidates in the prime-time clash.
& # 39; I don't believe you are a racist & # 39 ;, said Ms. Harris, although she described Mr. Biden's opinion that he and Republican segregation senators on non-racial issues & # 39; painful & # 39; used to be.

It is clear that Mr Biden has mentioned Mrs Harris's attack "a complete defect of my file".
He stated: & # 39; I ran because of civil rights. & # 39;
For moments on Thursday evening, a fierce debate between the parties simmering just below the surface about the future of the party was revealed on national television.
The confrontation consisted of four of the five strongest candidates – at least according to the first polls.
These are Mr Biden, Mr Sanders, Pete Buttigieg from Indiana and Mrs. Harris.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who debated Wednesday night, is the fifth.

Together, the two nights gave millions of Americans their first glimpse into the unruly 2020 season of the Democrats.
So many candidates stand in line to stand up against Mr Trump that they don't all fit into one debate phase – or even two.
Twenty Democrats debated this week on national television in two waves of ten, while a handful of more were left out altogether.
Mr Sanders referred back to the central candidates of his party early on and demanded & # 39; real change & # 39 ;.
Mr. Biden played down his established roots.
For example, the former vice president, along with the other candidates on the podium, raised his hand to say that his health care plan would provide illegal coverage to immigrants in the country.
Mr Biden, like Mr Sanders, who is 77, also represents a different generation than various candidates on the podium.
The age difference was noted by Californian representative Eric Swalwell, who said: & Joe Biden was right when he said it was time to pass on the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago & # 39 ;.
The showdown took place in Florida, a general election battle that could well determine whether Mr. Trump would win a second term next year.
Biden tried to completely circumvent the ideological debate by training his poison on Mr. Trump.
& # 39; Donald Trump thinks Wall Street has built America. Ordinary middle-class Americans built America, & said the former vice president.
He added: & # 39; Donald Trump has put us in a terrible situation. We have huge income inequality. & # 39;
Mr Biden's strategy is designed to emphasize his status as a leader, and with it the Democrat who is best placed to take the president to the ballot.
Above all disagreements about policy, democratic voters report that nothing is more important than finding a candidate who can beat Mr. Trump.
