Clearly frustrated with the question, an irate Joe Biden finally yelled, “Listen, Jack! If I don’t know if we’re packing the Supreme Court, neither should the voters!”
Biden went on to say, “All America deserves to know, is that if I do what the bad people say, I get some vanilla ice cream and a nap!”
This heated exchange could have been avoided had the reporter not forgotten his lines.
“Damn it! “Your line was, ‘who has the darkest soul in Washington and why is it Donald Trump’s?” Biden’s campaign manager yelled to the reporter while pointing to the massive cue cards. “Ok, cut! Let’s take five, everybody. When we get back, I want this to be the most buttoned-up, spontaneous encounter with the press Joe’s had since we put lipstick on Hunter and told NBC he was an undecided widow from Michigan.”
Joe Biden then approached his staff with the idea of having reporters ask him what he doesn’t know. “I’m pretty sure I could fill up three or four hours of questions if we do it that way,” Biden suggested.
Update: Since Joe is forbidden from saying things not written on the teleprompter, his little idea cost him that evening’s ice cream.
