If you had “one day” in the Joe Biden VP Gaffe Pool, collect your winnings!
That didn’t take long. During his first full day in office, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. made a jarring verbal gaffe, shooting a public dig at the chief justice of the United States that left President Obama grim-faced.
When asked by Mr. Obama to administer the oath of office to White House senior staff, Mr. Biden, who is known for saying things he shouldn’t, asked, “Am I doing this again?”
Appearing in need of a cheat sheet off which he could read the oath, Mr. Biden then said, “My memory isn’t as good as Justice Roberts’.”
Ba DUM bump! Thank you ladies and gentlemen, he’ll be here the next four years. Remember to tip your waiters and waitresses!
I suppose we should be thankful that he’s the Vice President and not Secretary of State. Nothing says “potential international incident” like Joe Biden freelancing in front of a foreign dignitary.
