Because we all know he’s as mad as a hatter, writes Olivia Nuzzi in The Daily Beast:
Vice President Joe Biden said he once chased down a bully on his bicycle, physically assaulted him, and threatened to “kill” him—all in the name of protecting the honor of his sister Valerie. Biden is, of course, famous for being a bit loose in his public remarks. But these comments, made Wednesday night in New York City, were particularly unbound.
Read the whole jaw-dropping thing — and then ask yourself whether any of this is remotely believable. Li’l Joey Biden, tough guy, smashing a kid’s head into the counter and then smart-mouthing the kid’s old man:
“His father grabbed me, and I looked at his son and said, ‘If you ever touch my sister again, I’ll come back here again and I’ll kill your son.’ Now, that was a euphemism. I thought I was really, really in trouble… My father never once raised his hand to any one of his children—never once—and I thought I was in trouble. He pulled me aside and said, ‘Joey, you shouldn’t do that, but I’m proud of you, son.’”
And this man is the vice president of the United States.
