Vice President Joe Biden spent a swing through Singapore accosting strangers in ego-driven photobombs. From the White House pool report:

He and his son-in-law Howard Krein made a 10-minute stop at the Adam Road hawker centre Thursday afternoon, a place famous for its prawn noodle soup and nasi lemak fried rice.

Mr Biden walked around greeting the food stall owners, as a crowd formed around him to take photos.

“Is that the Vice President?” wondered one onlooker to her boyfriend.

Mr Biden surprised another diner when he sat down next to him so that the two could take a photo together.

Later the man asked: “Who is he?”

Today Biden dropped in on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe “for wide-ranging and constructive discussions on the U.S.-Japan alliance and cooperation on regional and global issues,” according to the White House.

“The Vice President congratulated Prime Minister Abe on the recent election in Japan. Both sides reiterated their shared view on the central importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance for regional peace and stability, and reaffirmed their shared goal of enhancing the alliance and expanding security cooperation,” the readout of the meeting said. “…Regarding North Korea, the two sides agreed on the importance of close U.S.-Japan coordination as well as engagement with other partners in the region in addressing North Korea’s provocations and the need to live up to its denuclearization obligations.”

Joe Biden is like the uncle who comes to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, gets drunk, embarrasses everybody, and eventually has to be put to bed in the spare bedroom. I know I'm embarrassed to call him my Vice-President.

I hope they were finally able to get his meds to him.

The Secret Service detail really should carry a couple extra doses with them.

Ah yes, our National "Village Idiot" doing what he does best. Removing one foot from his mouth so he can insert the other.

Umm, I'm missing the part where he "accosted" diners.
