An email from Joe Biden telling me to "trust him" and promising "you'll have fun." Is he asking for a donation, or asking me on a date?—

Vice President Biden sent out a super creepy spam mail today. Twitter users gave it a unanimous “awkward” and politely averted their eyes.
Worst spam ever: sent by Joe Biden, subject "trust me — you'll have fun"—

Kind of creeped out by the subject line ("Trust me–you'll have fun") of Joe Biden's email, ngl.—

I just got an email from Joe Biden with the subject "Trust me, you'll have fun."

Sheesh, Joe. What’s next? “I’ll respect you in the morning … Trust me!”
Then, later in the day, the White House embargoed a Joe Biden conference call. They didn’t allow reporters to report on or tweet about the call while it was in progress.
Coincidence? You decide.
Good little media sheeple obeyed the order, it seems.
[insert tweet about the Biden call here because we're allowed to tweet now!]—

The reporters did kind of, sort of tweet about it afterward.
VP Biden also charged Republicans believes tax cuts for rich will "trickle down" but "we've seen that movie before & we know how it ends"—

Also on Biden call WH pushed back on diffs w/ Sen Dems on fiscal cliff by saying the bigger differences were btw Dems + GOP in Congress—

There was more snark from Twitter users (and some reporters) than there was substance to Joe’s remarks.
It is hard to diagram Joe Biden's sentences when he is speaking even a little extemporaneously.—

nothing to tweet about Biden because press was not allowed to tweet about Biden's remarks on the war on the middle-class—

Indeed! However, the lapdog media will suck it up and take it. It’s not like it was Mitt Romney’s staff mistakenly forgetting about the rope line or anything. That is unacceptable!
Embargoes? Totally fine.
