Watch: Joe Biden blabbers about chocolate chip ice cream right after tragic Nashville school shooting
Earlier today, Biden hosted the Small Business Administration's Women's Business Summit at the White House. The event began shortly after news broke about the tragic shooting at a private elementary school in Nashville. So, one would assume the President of the United States would first and foremost address the tragedy.
But Biden isn't like other Presidents. He seems to have two things at the forefront of his mind at all times: children and ice cream. Everything else takes a backseat. Even school shootings. So naturally, Biden began his remarks by discussing chocolate chip ice cream.
"My name is Joe Biden. I'm Dr. Jill Biden's husband. And I eat Jeni's ice cream. Chocolate chip. I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream."
"By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I'm kiddin', I'm not."
There isn't anything wrong with joking around and trying to lighten the mood. But maybe that should come after addressing the tragic event on everyone's minds. The shooting took place at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, and left six dead, including three children. The suspect is reportedly a 28-year-old female.
Biden did eventually address the shooting, but only after he got through all the ice cream jabber. He (surprise) called for more gun control and asked Congress to pass his assault weapons ban.
"The shooter in this situation reportedly had two assault weapons and a pistol — two AK-47s. So I call on Congress again to pass my assault-weapons ban. It’s about time that we began to make some more progress."
It should be noted that, as of the time of this article, no reports have indicated what weapons were used by the shooter. So Biden either knows something we don't and accidentally revealed privileged info, or he got confused and pulled something out of thin air. My money's on the latter.
