13-year-old Brayden Harrington, whom Joe Biden bonded with on the campaign trail over their joint struggles with stuttering, said the former vice president is “someone who cares” during a Democratic National Convention address.
Harrington met Biden at an event in New Hampshire and asked for help overcoming his stutter. Biden struggled with a stutter as a boy and continues to counsel youngsters who are going through the same.
Brayden said at Thursday’s DNC that Biden told him he improved his speaking by reading aloud verses by the poet Yeats.
“Joe Biden made me feel confident about something that’s been bothering me my whole life,” he said.
He added: “Without Joe Biden, I wouldn’t be talking to you today.”
