"So tell me about Joe and... what do I need to know, like, what's the thing with the ice cream? He loves ice cream. Tell me about that."

The thing I love about Democrats is that they have to work so hard to make themselves seem human.

It's actually a thing they have to work on, every election. How to present themselves as human. Pretty funny.

Roy Jacobsen said...

More pap. Again, a lot of talking without saying anything.

Which, paradoxically, speaks volumes.

Kevin said...

Does Joe like kittens?

Oh, I bet Joe likes kittens!

Empty minds, empty promises, empty heads.

Today's Democrat Party.

rehajm said...

Joe Biden, with a nearly fifty year track record in United States politics, is a shiny new penny to Kamala Harris.

AllenS said...

I listened to it for about, 5 seconds. If you don't like Biden talking about himself, these two show up. Gag.

Andrew said...

I remember Scott Adams saying there was a mole in the Hillary campaign, who was deliberately making lousy decisions. Perhaps the mole never left? Or is there a new mole in town?

From the Labor Day event on dead grass, to the slogan "Build Back Better," to this video of Kamala asking about ice cream, it's like they're trying to lose.

And is it just me, or does Obama look like he knows it's already over, and Biden is doomed?

Amy said...

I could only make it through the first 30 seconds. Her nervous laugh is nails on a blackboard to me.

rehajm said...

...but kudos for trying to put some Obamaness lipstick on this pig of a ticket.

gspencer said...

Just forget about those messy ideas that the Democrat Party entertains, like deep-sixing the Constitution and any limits on government power, and focus on the important stuff, like Joe's ice cream likes.

Tom T. said...

This gives the Trump campaign an opening to remind everyone about Pelosi's expensive double fridge full of expensive ice cream.

Not to mention lots of jokes about Grandpa Joe having moved on to afternoon pudding.

Now this is the hard-hitting reporting I look forward to in an election year.

Good Ol' Joe.

Kamala is Hillary without the charm.

David-2 said...

The reason Harris is interviewing Obama and not Biden about what Biden is like is that Biden would have to read his answers off the 'prompter and he can't manage that anymore.


(Also, yes, @rehajm, 45yrs in the public eye including 8 as a hanger-on in the White House and we have to be "reintroduced" to Biden, just like we had to be "reintroduced" to Hillary over and over and over...)

Craig said...

The degree to which the Democrats and the media are insulting voters' intelligence this year is astounding -- a new low.

Of course, according to the polls it is working, so apparently Americans really are that dumb.

mikee said...

Joe Biden has dementia, and Harris' candidacy is a Hail Mary pass in a game known to be lost, in the off chance that a miracle occurs and a far left socialist with the ethics of an alley cat might be put into a position of such authority that the US can be damaged beyond belief.

But hey, diversity pick! Yay!

I never want to hear her horrible nasal voice, ever.

LilyBart said...

What they love is that Joe's mental decline means for power for the people behind Joe!

Paul said...

Democrats haven't a clue.... November election is gonna be a landslide. But DON'T GET COCKY KID!

MAGA!

wendybar said...

Is this supposed to make them seem like us?? It didn't work.

Wince said...

They were talking about Biden as though he were "no longer with us".

Darrell said...

Obama's favorite flavor is Stuttering-Clusterfuck-of-a-Miserable-Failure-Stracciatella. It keeps well in Nancy P's $million icebox.

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

“I remember Scott Adams saying there was a mole in the Hillary campaign, who was deliberately making lousy decisions. Perhaps the mole never left? Or is there a new mole in town?”

As with HRC, what compelling interest does Obama have in Biden winning? Obama knows he’s untouchable and any new Democrat president just diminishes his relevance (and his ability to monetize it). Plus, he knows Biden sees him as a “Negro” and no doubt that triggers his contempt. No love lost.

William said...

Gag me with a spoon. Never is heard a discouraging word in all that pap. By God, Joe Biden likes ice cream and pasta with red sauce. That's the kind of man we need in the White House.....There's not a single late night comic who will make fun of this exchange. There's no one in their world who will tell them how fatuous they look.

Fernandinande said...

Just in case anyone gets the idea that Trump's team put that video together, let it be known that it was emitted by the Joe Biden youtube channel.

Butkus51 said...

ok, now i gotta go blow my brains out.

Bob said...

Craig said, "Of course, according to the polls it is working, so apparently Americans really are that dumb."

I'd bet their polls say "likeability" is the only issue Biden has over Trump.

stevew said...

Is that supposed to appeal to me, a converted Trump supporter? Syrupy and affected. Neither of them believes a word they are saying.

William said...

Eichner did it better.

tommyesq said...

Geez, I hope Harris is not suggesting that Slo-Joe would take two scoops of ice cream when everyone else only gets one!

tommyesq said...

By the way, Obama sure loves himself some Obama.

cacimbo said...

Obama sounds most genuine when he expresses frustration over how Joe is always behind schedule because he can't stop talking.Mostly what comes across is OB's complete lack of enthusiasm for his old buddy Joe.

Chris N said...

When I see videos of formerly oppressed brown and black bodies, cast with the warm, honey glow of political power, I know we've arrived at a better place.

When I hear the daily and oh-so-frustrating challanges of these great political leaders, I know the arc of History is bending towards Justice.

WHen I feel the goodness of inclusion, diversity, and community in my heartspace, I know our Global Climate is changing.

Namaste.

Tommy Duncan said...

Some pollster was paid a lot of money to conduct a focus group that led to this "interview". I pray the Democratics spend a lot more money with that same pollster and use the same focus group participants again.

Think of Lizzy Warren swigging beer.

And Pelosi eats $13 a pint ice cream that she stores in a $25,000 freezer. You know, just like the average American.

Sydney said...

I stopped listening at the water bottle as weights point. Sounds like every conversation I've been forced to listen to while waiting for my kids to finish their music lessons.

Joe Smith said...

Ice cream...pudding...oatmeal. Things that don't need to be chewed.

Charlie said...

Trump's campaign made this using CGI, correct?

tim in vermont said...

When Ronald Reagan was at the final throes of his Alzheimer’s, Nancy would take him every day for an ice cream cone. Just saying.

I lasted 40 seconds.

The sad part is, this stuff works.

Skeptical Voter said...

I look at this (I could stand it for maybe 45 seconds) and I think I'm going to puke.
Two worthless grifters yukking it up. As phony as an Oscar ceremony--which I also won't watch.

Lurker21 said...


Joe always gets an extra scoop.

And now he only wants the $13 a pint brand and wants it kept in a $24,000 refrigerator.

Leadership has its privileges.

DEEBEE said...

Playing this thing forward was puke worthy — Arnold Schwarzenegger as teacher in kindergarten.
Wonder whether the real message is in playing the thing backwards.

Kevin said...

Biden Campaign: We need you to make a video about Joe's polices.

Obama: No way.

Campaign: How about... how you think Joe will make a great President?

Obama: You must be kidding.

Campaign: How about... you banter with Kamala about how Joe's a nice guy?

Obama: What does it pay?

Kevin said...

Kamala vs. Hillary: Who cackled it better?

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

It appeals to the late night TeeVee superficial preferences & appearances crowd.

Drago said...

That just might be the toughest interview yet of any dem this election cycle.

MadisonMan said...

That needed editing. Obama talking about meeting a security guard or a kid running for Student Council, when Harris is just nodding her head and saying "right..right…" was boring boring boring.

Same. I don't understand why politicians with nasal voices or other annoying qualities don't hire voice coaches.

rcocean said...

That is so dreary. Is the point to 'Humanize' Harris? If you need to do that with your VP, you picked the wrong VP.

This makes them lovable to the NPR women demographic, which they already have in their pocket. It's a kind of masturbation.

Further more Hillary is still doing her Jehovah Witness routine on my doorstep.
and may be y'alls too?!

Rabel said...

There's a good chance that in a few months the giggly idiot on the left will be President of the United States of America and Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military in the history of the world.

Grace said...

I think it's a great piece. It shows that Kamala and President Obama are real people (and likeable). The conversation is uplifting and positive. Nothing like a Trump conversation with anyone. Trump is always real, but real for him is obnoxious, deceitful and just plain mean. I will be happy when he is EX-POTUS. He will go down as the worst President in US history. I am looking forward to a Biden/Harris victory and the return of the true America.

Rob said...

Biden rememberers the people in Scranton? He left Scranton when he was eight. But Biden and Harris do have one thing in common. She filled up liter jugs with water to use as weights. He did the same, except he filled them with his own urine, and was he ever proud!

Jim at said...

@ Grace

Good parody should be hard to detect.
Try again.

Joanne Jacobs said...

Biden already is seen as a real person. Heck, he was born in Scranton! His problem is that many see him as a regular old guy who's losing his mental faculties. His love of ice cream and tendency to ramble doesn't make him seem presidential.

Every four years, we pretend that we're electing a buddy, rather than a president, someone who'd be great at a backyard barbecue. Unless you're a multi-millionaire donor, the barbecue thing rarely works out.

Goodness. November can't get here fast enough.

Is she getting whiter? She is so white.

Maybe she's hiding in the basement with Joe. Get out in the sun, girl, you need a tan. Seriously.
