Joe Biden Jokes to Wounded Soldiers About Richard Blumenthal's Vietnam Lies

Yuk-Yuk

Jokester Vice President Joe Biden joked to wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center about Connecticut Democrat Richard Blumenthal’s Vietnam lies.
The Hill reported:

Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday took an unexpected dig at Democratic Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal for misstating his military service record.

While speaking at a barbecue for wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he commented about veterans coming home from the Vietnam War. Biden, who has a penchant for being loquacious, veered into the Connecticut Senate race.

“I didn’t serve in Vietnam. I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake here,” he said according to a pool report. “Our attorney general from Connecticut, God love him.”

 

Later he said “I have a bad habit of saying exactly what I think.”

Blumenthal became the brunt of Republican criticism after The New York Times reported he misstated his service record during the Vietnam War on several occasions.
