Joe Biden created a confusing situation for the media and public on Saturday, following an exchange with a Fox News reporter.
Peter Doocy, a Fox reporter who has had run-ins with Biden before, asked Biden if he had picked a running mate yet. Biden responded: “yeah.”
But Biden’s response to Doocy’s followup muddied the waters. Doocy asked who the running mate was, and Biden responded: “You.”
Obviously, the second part of the exchange was a joke, or at least what passes for a joke for the often inexplicably belligerent Biden. And Biden’s campaign certainly made sure to do damage control as well.
Biden’s press secretary jumped on Twitter to explain: “Folks, this is clearly a joke. When Vice President Biden has made a decision on who his running mate will be, he will let the American people know. And can confirm, it’s not @pdoocy of @FoxNews.”
