Cameras captured the moment as Schumer met Biden at a tarmac in Syracuse, New York.
“The state where we’re going downhill is Georgia,” Schumer said to the president.
He added, “It’s hard to believe that they will go for Herschel Walker.”

According to FiveThirtyEight, Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker is only trailing Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) by 1.7 points.
Schumer’s comments come after a second woman came forward alleging that Walker paid for her abortion.
Axios reported, during a news conference Wednesday, the woman claimed Walker “pressured” her into getting an abortion after learning she was pregnant in April 1993.
“I was devastated because I felt that I had been pressured into having an abortion,” she said.
Walker went on to deny the allegation, saying Democrats are “doing and saying anything they can to win this seat.”
He added, “I’ve already told people this is a lie, and I’m not going to entertain, continue to carry a lie along.”
Earlier this month, Walker addressed another allegation that he paid for an abortion.
He told NBC News he gave money to his former partner but claimed it was not used for an abortion.
Another notable moment of Schumer and Biden’s exchange was when he commented on the debate between Pennsylvania Democratic nominee John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz.
“It looks like the debate didn’t hurt us too much in Pennsylvania as of today, so that’s good,” Schumer said.
He later added, “We’re picking up steam in Nevada.”
Politico noted Fetterman struggled throughout the debate to communicate as he was “missing words, pausing awkwardly and speaking haltingly.”
Fetterman suffered from a stroke in May.
