Vice President Joe Biden is in town, visiting both Renton and Seattle—and causing traffic jams. Biden was “scheduled to discuss workplace and economic issues” at Renton Technical College. Afterward, he “will attend a political fund-raising luncheon at the Washington State Convention Center with Sen. Maria Cantwell.”
Biden’s visit is part of his “West Coast tour to promote a minimum wage hike and boost Democratic campaigns as the party tries to maintain control of the Senate.” According to the Seattle Times, he “started his Western trip with a stop in Las Vegas on Monday followed by events in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Bakersfield, Calif., on Tuesday.” Yesterday, Biden was in Portland to promote the re-election bid of Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley.
Considering that Biden jumped from an “apology tour” to a West Coast fundraising tour, we here at SHIFT would like to honor the vice president’s visit with a short video of his most cringe worthy gaffes. Via CNN,
