We failed to heed Vice President Biden’s warning. “They’re going to put y’all back in chains,” he drawled in the most authentic twang he could manage.

He knew. Oh, he knew. And “y’all” did nothing. We did nothing.

Now the vice president has reportedly been sent home to Delaware for the weekend.

With Biden under house arrest, we all suffer. Won’t somebody release Uncle Joe from these shackles? Won’t somebody take a stand and #FreeJoeBiden from his chains? Who will speak for the vice president’s God-given right to supply us with mock-worthy gaffesWho?

A few reports of Biden sightings are starting to come in.

But there may be some complications in freeing Uncle Joe.

At this time, there has been no word of a hostage video. Twitchy will monitor the situation and update as soon as more information is available.
