A video of Vice President Joe Biden comforting Corey Hixon, the son of slain Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School athletic director Chris Hixon, during a memorial service in Parkland, Florida, is going viral more than two years after it was shot. Corey and his mother speak to CNN’s John Berman about their experience.

    Thank God Biden won. We need more compassion, more emparhy.. this hate we feels towards the other party us destroying us.

  3. Not a Genius on December 3, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    We need more men like mr Biden…..

  4. Laurie on December 3, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    This made me cry! Thank f–king gawd we are FINALLY going to have a decent man leading our country again! Could you imagine Trump showing even one, tiny, molecule of genuine compassion for anyone?

  5. Darryl Vidds on December 3, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    If Joe Biden comforts that kid, Donald Trump would Confront that kid

  6. peggy ONeal on December 3, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    Yes, at that time, he was VICE-PRESIDENT……..but NOW,

  7. VIETNAM VETERAN AGAINST HATE on December 3, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Joe is a good man

  8. Mia on December 3, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Isn’t he the humble , kind, honest, compassionate, United 46th President of the United States of all Americans ? AMERICA IS BACK🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  9. Ana María Moreno Hernández on December 3, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Presidente electo, con usted.

  10. Thinkitstime on December 3, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Biden, love or hate him, he embodies humanity. Empathy and compassion flow in his blood. We’re blessed to have him as President-elect.

  11. hankypanda on December 3, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    So sweet how he received such a warm compassionate hug 😭 and I hope his heart is healing from the tremendous loss of his father.

  12. The Boss on December 3, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Biden comforts the disabilities. Trump mocks them.

  13. Michael Snow on December 3, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    And Republicans still have the bloody audacity to call him the names they do. Shameless, selfish assholes, the lot of them.

  14. glitchly pickle on December 3, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Imagine a president that say “Thank you for hugging me” how sweet

  15. ChilliusVGM on December 3, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Those words at the time just meant "We’ll be okay" but now they really mean "We’ll be okay, I’m gonna change things."

  16. Hey It’s Lily on December 3, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Trump would be like:
    “Is that a kid? A kid. Why is it running at me??? I can’t recognize a kid, I’m barely around my own.”

  17. hillock10 on December 3, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Sound the TAPS for Biden. It’s back to the basement in Delaware. The mob killer Sydney Powell put a fork in his fantasy of being a president. Hey Joe, why not take a job as greeter for Walmart? They’re looking for people like you right now. Of course you got all those bags of cash from China. Don’t blow it all over town, Joe. Why not just concede with grace, Joe?

  18. metube on December 3, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    this lady is kind of incredible

  19. Daniel Brongers on December 3, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Trumpists: Biden stole the election and is a criminal.

    Me after watching the video: Oh, really? Would a criminal hug a young boy out of compassion? Trump NEVER showed compassion or dignity, only hate, during his 4 years of ‘presidency’. It is a shame his ‘trumpys’ refuse to see that. But mark my words, Trump will NEVER win this election. But should he find a way to ILLEGALLY ‘win’ the election regardless, then pray to God for help, because no one else will. You – those who WANTED to HELP Trump STEAL the election, of which ALL of you accused Biden of doing – wanted America to become a dictatorship under Trump’s rule, thus making clear that you don’t care about democracy or the American people in general. If that is indeed going to be the case, then may God have mercy on your corrupted souls…Because, at the end of the day, the DEMOCRACY, thus ending the free country as we know it. I truly hope that the Trumpists will realize that, should it happen and I certainly hope they will be happy and proud of themselves of what they have done or HELPED Trump to what he wanted to do with this once great nation…

    Tears running down

  21. IzzyG on December 3, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Now i know this is good that he’s comforting these people during their grief. But i find it messed up that he’s taking advantage of someone who is intellectualy disabled.

  22. Osakuni Kate on December 3, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Biden is a role model to all. Long live Joe

  23. regina phalange on December 3, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    God bless Corey and his wonderful Mom.

  24. Toya Patrick on December 3, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Why am I crying??? That was so genuine.

  25. Elle Con on December 3, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    This reporter should be commended, too. He was so respectful towards Cory and not the least bit patronizing. I hope everyday that people will approach my son with disabilities like this.

  26. Concerned Citizen on December 3, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Trump would have used this family with their tragedies as a prop.

  27. Lydia Lewis on December 3, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Respect to the interviewer for including this beautiful young man into the discussion and not ignoring his presence!!!!

  28. ldbagwell on December 3, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Can anyone see Trump doing that?

  29. tfit tread on December 3, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    😥 Crying…

  30. Stephen Hobbins on December 3, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    R.I.P. Cory’s Father he really miss his father so much and this makes me sad 😰😭💔🕊😢

  32. Paulina Owiredu on December 3, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Deepest condolences to all the families who lost loved ones. May God Comfort you all.

  33. Tom James on December 3, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Thanks to everyone taking their time to read this testimony on how my son was saved from Autism. He was diagnosed four years ago, and he’s just 6, I have tried several treatments and medications, nothing was working out, this got me frustrated and depressed. I kept praying and finally God answered my prayers when someone from youtube introduced me to this doctor from his home country and gave me his contact details.I called and explained my son’s condition after which I made an order for his herbal remedy, he asked for my address and the next day I got a tracking number for a parcel sent to me through DHL and after four days I received my order. It was a liquid herbal medicine and a letter containing the instructions on how to use the herbs, I called him again to confirm and the next morning I started giving my son the herbs as instructed and after one week I noticed great improvement on my son and I continued until the herbs got finished and everything lasted for just one month and now my son is totally free from Autism, he can now talk clearly, behave normally and has no more seizures.If you’ve been searching for a genuine solution for Autism, connect with this honest Doctor on Whats App + 2 3 4 9045034505or (drosususolution@gmail. com ..

    president biden has much love and empathy for everyone does not matter your politics ,a great guy

  35. Evelyn Perez on December 3, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    The fact that President Elect Biden said "We’ll be ok!", shows empathy to a family he doesn’t know. He has gone through a lot and he is an awesome human being by letting others know he is hurting, but he knows that it will be ok.

  36. Elle Bradley on December 3, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    That’s beautiful, what an amazing man 🥺

  37. Nancy Griffin on December 3, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    I’m crying like a baby. Joe is such a compassionate human being. He took time for kids that stutter and now he comforts a child who’s lost his father. I don’t see Trump doing the same. I just don’t think Trump cares about anyone but himself. I’ve seen no evidence of it.

  38. Talebale AJ on December 3, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    You can’t fake all that love and compassion. So much humanity.

  39. Dodong Diaz on December 3, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Only the 2nd Catholic US President, such an empathetic and voluntary gesture from one human being to another (*_*)

  40. charles i on December 3, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    And this is why he won.

  41. DJMeCa on December 3, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Needless to say, but what a contrast between Biden’s clear apathy healing, and caring, as opposed to the person in the Oval Office right now.

  42. Lydia Lewis on December 3, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Biden is a genuinely loving person. You see it in ALL his actions.

  43. Rev Darrell V Mitchell Sr. on December 3, 2020 at 10:05 pm


  44. Sassy Signs on December 3, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    It takes true compassion to just forget your role in the world and connect to someone on a vulnerable, human level.

  45. E Nikata on December 3, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Joe Biden may not be the best president America will ever have but he is exactly what the country needs right now. He has decency and humanity. And he understands how to be kind. So maybe these traits could make him one the greatest presidents America has ever had.

  46. Not Sure on December 3, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    949 dislikes for an old man who was suffered unspeakable loss of half of his family in the 70’s comforting a special needs boy after the tragic murder of his father. I hope they were not born with that kind of malice, because there might be a chance they can unlearn it. Atleast 20k have a heart.

  47. Edward Kuntz on December 3, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    I don’t like that we’re praising Joe Biden for treating a boy with a disability like the human that he is. You treat every human equally. Just the fact that people feel like they have to mention the kid having a disability is disgusting.

  48. glitchly pickle on December 3, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    When the boy ran towards Joe and he immediately ,without hesitation hugged and kissed his head… that was truly sweet❤️

  49. Lucy B on December 3, 2020 at 10:16 pm


  50. Pamela Bryant on December 3, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    That is our 46th President … It was pure instinct that when he heard the small voice he turned and reached out with open arms. ❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸
