Biden Jokes: ‘I Didn’t Serve In Vietnam. I Don’t Want To Make a Blumenthal Mistake Here’

Vice President Joe Biden has done it again — this time making fun of Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the Democratic candidate for Senate, for his misstatements about his military service.

At a Naval Observatory event for wounded warriors last night, Biden discussed his memories of troops who returned from the Vietnam War. “I didn’t serve in Vietnam. I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake here. Our attorney general from Connecticut, God love him,” said Biden, according to the pool report filed by Stars and Stripes. Biden later added: “I have a bad habit of saying exactly what I think.”

Make no mistake — a vice president telling a joke at the expense of his own party’s Senate candidate is a big f—— deal.
