As Twitchy reported, it was a good day for Vice President Joe Biden, and just about everyone in Washington seemed happy that he was out and about. Reporters, in particular, were very excited that the vice president provided them with a tidbit of intrigue to make the upcoming Trump presidency a little easier to swallow.

For the record, that “I am going to run for president in 2020” quote was followed immediately by, “What the hell man, anyway?” Reporters tried to nail down whether Biden was just teasing, thinking out loud, or committing.

Also for the record, we were so excited at the prospect we all ran outside and fired our shotguns blindly into the air.

NEWS? Or fake news?

Is it too soon to haul out the #Biden2020 hashtag? Apparently not.

It could be a joke whether it’s true or not.
