Joseph “Beau” Biden III, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, has died from brain cancer, the White House announced Saturday evening. He was 46.

There really isn’t much to say; we can only offer our deepest condolences for the Biden family tonight.

I mean, I’m a father. I … no, I just can’t deal with imagining a day like today.
