Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has dropped out of the race and perhaps no one is harder hit than fellow candidate Joe Biden.

“It was the opportunity of a lifetime to work side-by-side with my grandson on this campaign,” Biden told reporters Sunday night. “Even though he has to get back to baseball season, rest assured we are going to keep this momentum all the way to city hall!” 

“We’ll miss you, Sam,” he added tearfully. 

Velvet Hamster can confirm that Biden does not have a grandson named Sam.
