Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden was in very good spirits as he held the ceremonial swearing-in ceremony with newly-elected and re-elected senators.
The vice president had some awkward kisses with various child family members. He joked with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that he didn’t want to swear him in and then grabbed a young lady from Graham’s campaign team to stand next to him and said ‘I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid’. He borrowed Sen. Cory Gardner’s (R-CO) cell phone to call the senator’s grandmother. He also said ‘I like kids better than people’ and then mistakenly called Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) ‘Gail,’ her husband’s name.
