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?
BIDEN visits Senate, greets reporters. Asked about 2020. 'I'm not committing to anything. Fate has a way of intervening.'

Did he say this with a wink, or seriously? I could imagine it either way. https://t.co/GojJRcLxvp

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

I thought Biden 2020 was a joke

It could be a joke whether it’s true or not.
Glad we made it almost a full month before starting the 2020 presidential campaign. #Biden2020
