Vice President Joe Biden has created a new political shtick. Instead of kissing babies, now he is sucking on their pacifiers. At least that seems to be the case when Joey met Mikey this week.
On Wednesday, VP Biden had a close encounter with Michael Bloomberg’s grandson, 1-year-old Jasper Michael Brown Quintana. Afterward, baby Mikey’s mother, Bloomberg’s daughter Georgina, posted a photo to Facebook showing Biden sucking on the tyke’s pacifier as little Mikey seemed to look on incredulously.
So far, Biden’s office has had no comment on the picture.
