This is great. Joe Biden gave a long, boring, barely audible, half-asleep set of remarks to the United States Conference of Mayors over remote connection today, and as he was wrapping up, someone on the line (possibly the mayor of LOUISVILLE) can be heard laughing as Biden makes a crazy, pandering promise.
“I promise you I’ll have your back,” said Biden. “I mean that sincerely. Look at my record, I have. And I want to make sure that your ideas are the ones that are funneled up. They don’t have to go through a state legislature, go through a governor.”
“They can go straight to the federal government, straight to me,” says Biden, at which point you hear the chuckling.
“I really mean it,” Biden continues, as the laughing increases.
WATCH AND LISTEN:
The mayor who then takes the virtual mic and thanks Biden is the mayor of Louisville. But who knows if he was the one chuckling or not.
