Biden gives VP another verbal promotion as ‘President Harris’
Vice President Joe Biden gave Vice President Mike Pence another verbal promotion by saying Pence was his “younger brother” and he was “very, very pleased with Mike Pence.”
Biden made those remarks in his weekly appearance on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
Biden said Pence is not only “a fine person, he’s a fine congressman, and he’s done a good job for the president.”
This is the second time Biden has indicated that he views Pence as his “younger brother” and “my brother.”
Earlier in the interview, Biden told Stephanopolous that he was “a little bit sad that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.”
“That’s how I look at it,” Biden said.
Biden also appeared to dismiss any idea that Pence has any chance of becoming the next president of the United States.
“Look, you can make him president of the United States one day if you want,” Biden said, referring to Pence by his middle name, Indiana. “He’s not going to be.”
Stephanopoulos pressed Biden on whether he would vote for Pence if Pence got the job and was asked whether he sees any upside to Trump being elected the next president.
“I’m just not looking at it with the sort of the political calculation, I don’t see any upside to us getting Donald Trump in there,” Biden said.
“I’m all for Hillary Clinton going forward, but I’m not going to give Donald Trump a third election as president and I’m not going to give any other Republican a third election,” Biden added.
“Are you saying that, Joe?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Look, I’m not going to take a position on that
