Joe Biden’s ‘My time’s up’ comment in the Democratic presidential debate has been used by his critics to make a point about the Vice President’s time in national politics.

The 76-year-old was referring to the amount of time left on the debate clock but it seems some commentators interpreted the remark in a different way.

Biden uttered the phrase after he was given a 30-second warning.  

The moment Biden became his own moderator: ‘Anyway, my time’s up,’ he said. ‘I’m sorry’

He talked about his track record on civil rights and voting rights before he declared time up following a tense exchange with California Sen. Kamala Harris. 

‘Anyway, my time’s up,’ he said. ‘I’m sorry.’ 

Twitter critics soon went to town on the comment with some speculating the words would define his campaign, while others criticized Biden for not making the most of every second.

The debate was tense at times punctuated by a heated exchange between Biden and Harris.

‘I do not believe you are a racist,’ Harris said to Biden before criticizing his record of working with Democratic segregationist senators on non-race issues as ‘hurtful.’

Harris went on to blast Biden for recent comments about working with segregationists in the Senate and his past opposition to the busing of students to desegregated schools in the 1970s, arguing it was a state’s rights issue. 

Biden said Harris’ criticism was ‘a complete mischaracterization of my record.’   

‘I ran because of civil rights,’ he added. 

California Rep. Eric Swalwell, 38, took a swipe at Biden’s advanced age.

‘Joe Biden was right when he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago,’ Swalwell jabbed.

Biden responded: ‘I’m still holding onto that torch.’ 

Either Biden or Sanders would be the oldest president ever elected.
