Joe Biden, on college cheerleaders, per pool report: "They’re almost all gymansts, the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.’’—

Two! Four! Six! Eight! What is Biden’s mental state?
Creepily whispering to biker chicks while cradling them in his lap was only the beginning. Today at an impromptu campaign stop at Newport High School in New Hampshire, Uncle Joe made perhaps the gaffiest of gaffes today when he gave cheerleaders a shout-out as only Uncle Joe can:
“Guess what, the cheerleaders in college are the best athletes in college,” Biden said. “You think, I’m joking, they’re almost all gymnasts, the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.”
If he elaborated any further, nobody heard it on account of the symphony of jaws hitting the floor.
Twitterers, of course, couldn’t help but go to town:
Sigh. Biden per pool on college cheerleaders referring to them as gymnasts "the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.’’—

To Biden: Please, never, ever mention cheerleaders, hard & wood in the same sentence. Thank you.—

Joe Biden is giving Tobias Fünke a serious run for his money.
