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