Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti channeled Vice President Joe Biden on Monday as he toasted the Stanley Cup champion Kings at a Staples Center rally.
“There are two rules in politics. They say never, ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear,” Garcetti said as he raised a bottle of Bud Light. “But this is a big fucking day.”
Biden recently referenced his infamous remark about President Barack Obama’s health care law at a bike ride for injured veterans.
“Piece of advice about that BFD stuff: Assume every microphone is on,” he said.
