In a stunning political move, Democrat Presidential nominee Joe Biden has selected Caitlyn Jenner as his running mate. When asked about his choice, Biden said the following:
Biden: Caitlyn brings much-needed diversity to the ticket. Her knowledge of how change can be difficult will help this country heal after four years of Donald Trump. Plus, I’m told we have a chance to pick up the swing states, which could have gone either way with a different pick.
Reporter: Mr. Vice President, you do know that Caitlyn Jenner is a transsexual.
Biden: No, she’s my Veep pick, not my Transportation Secretary.
Another reporter: He said she’s a transsexual. She’s a guy who became a she.
Biden: I don’t understand.
Reporter (snickering): She’s a guy who underwent a lopitoffomy.
Biden (as reporters laugh): What kind of operation is that? They removed a malignant growth? What’s wrong with that?
Reporter (unable to hold back laughter): It means . . . he . . . he . . . hee hee hee!
Biden: Am I on candid camera?
Aide (to another aide): Get Jill in here stat!
Second aide (returns with Jill): Honey, I think you made a wise choice. I’ll explain it to you. [Whispers in his ear, Biden’s eyes widen.]
Biden: I thought her shoulders were pretty darn firm. At least her hair smelled good.
[Reporters lose it en masse. Another aide steps up to the mike.]
Aide: I’m sorry, but that’s all the questions for now. Mr. Biden has to leave and interview someone for his Chief of Staff.
Reporter: Who is it?
Aide (looks at paper): A Mr. Ron Jeremy.
[Reporters fall to the floor in hysterics]
Biden (surveys the commotion and turns to Jill): That went well, don’t you think?
Jill (rolling her eyes): Let’s just go.Published in
