Joe Biden traveled to Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday to visit the VA.
Biden is visiting the VA clinic to “to speak with veterans, caregivers, and survivors about addressing the health effects of environmental exposures such as burn pits,” the White House said.
Three Texas Congressmen joined Biden on Tuesday – Rep. Colin Allred (D), Rep. Marc Veasey (D) and Rep. Jake Ellzey (R).
Joe Biden went off-script at one point during his speech and that’s when things got awkward.
“The three congressman you have here, two of them look like they really could and did play ball, and the other one looks like he can bomb you,” said Biden.

Proud to join my fellow North Texans @RepVeasey and @RepEllzey on Air Force One with @POTUS as we head to North Texas to discuss how we can keep our promise to our veterans. pic.twitter.com/LSTs0SPRab
