Joe Biden’s Friskiest Moments From The Senate Swearing-In (VIDEO)

As Vice President Joe Biden greeted new and returning senators on Thursday on Capitol Hill, he was all smiles. “There’s a lot to smile about today,” he said as he caressed the face of one of the attendees.

Throughout the ceremony, Biden took center stage, greeting senators, children, babies and mothers with hugs, kisses, pats on the back and fist bumps.

“Spread your legs, you’re gonna be frisked,” he said to the family of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). He later made this offer to relatives of Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC): “If you need any help with your pecs, let me know.”

Check out the best of Biden’s schmoozing below:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
