MSNBC Runs a 3-Minute Segment on Joe Biden Eating Ice Cream at the Capitol
VELSHI: “There has been a lot of change in his political career over the years, but the one constant is that Joe Biden really, really loves ice cream. He talks about it literally all the time. He visited the headquarters of an ice cream company back when he was vice president, he said, 'I eat more ice cream than three other people you would like to be with all at once.' I have no idea what that actually means, but I like to think of it as Joe Biden’s —I don’t know, his default mode. No matter what’s going on, no matter if he's a senator, a sitting president, no matter what crisis is sitting on his plate, just get that man a cone."
ALBA: "What is your message to Republicans who are prepared to block the January 6th commission?"
BIDEN: "Eat some chocolate chip."
ALBA: "Any compromise and common ground on that?"
BIDEN: "On a commission? I think it has been — I can’t imagine anyone voting against the establishment of a commission on the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol. But at any rate, I came for ice cream."
VELSHI: "'I came for the ice cream.' That was the President today, making a very on-brand emergency ice cream pit stop after giving a speech on the economy in Ohio. And I know the President really wanted to focus on that chocolate chip cone, but the news out of D.C. today was so tense and so toxic that it trailed him all the way to that sweet little ice cream shop in Ohio this afternoon."
