Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden got some priceless social media buzz Saturday when a few seconds of his bike ride went viral thanks to Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.
The enterprising Doocy shouted to a masked Biden “Mr. Vice President have you picked a running mate yet?” as the ex-VP and his entourage passed by.
“Yeah I have,” said Biden.
“You have? Who is it?” asked Doocy, to which Biden jokingly replied “You!”
Doocy reported the first part of Biden’s response, that he has made his selection, as a scoop — which the Biden campaign quickly shot down.
But Twitter blue checks — including journalists — elevated the moment to viral status, noting the contrast between President Donald Trump’s narrative about Biden and the reality projected in that brief clip, among other things.
Joe Biden can ride a bike, while wearing a mask, AND dropping a joke on Peter Doocy.
trump can barely crawl down a ramp, doesn't wear a mask, and sucks at telling jokes.
