Kimmel: Biden, precocious girl charm White House Community Leaders Briefingon July 19, 2012 at 6:00 am
Noticing a mother scolding her 7-year-old daughter for reading in the audience which mainly consisted of senior citizens, the Vice President took a moment to visit with the precocious little girl and her mother. Biden was in fine form, and truly was the kindly uncle we all wish we’d had, instead of the loud, drunken one we got. (please say every family has one) Far from offended that the young girl was reading rather than hanging on every word, Biden encouraged her to read her book, and said that she “deserved a big surprise for having to sit through all this.” The perky little girl gladly resumed reading, and the ‘surprise’ is in the reading material. I don’t know what she told her mother, but this book reportedly is NOT – a treatise on senior citizen’s issues!
