There’s a lot going on in this clip from RNC Research. Joe Biden is telling Tom Hanks another one of his Amtrak stories (in case you missed the convention Monday night, they did a lengthy segment on Biden and trains there too). Biden tells Hanks how he was at a train station waiting for a black man to pick him up. He recalls being inaugurated as vice president in 2018 … no, 2012.
Joe Biden repeatedly forgets he was first inaugurated as vice president in 2009: “January of 2018…I mean excuse me 2012”pic.twitter.com/pw3dVL6yoQ

Hanks seems like a pretty patient guy.
Tom Hanks deserves another Oscar for his lack of horror.

Tom Hanks looks bored out of his mind.

Even Oscar winning actor can't fake enthusiasm listening to Biden speak.

And Tom Hanks nods

Look how pleased Hanks is that Biden completed a sentence with the head nod! Lol

Why is he speaking to Tom Hanks? I don’t understand the democrat party at all

amazing that the DNC thinks hollywood is a positive association for them.

Another tough celebrity interview for #HidenBiden. I doubt other world leaders would just nod approvingly at this stammering during a serious negotiation.

He’s just trying to outforrest Forrest. Let’s cut him some slack.

@tomhanks During the course of that story, I watched Forrest Gump twice.

Wow, this is getting really pathetic.

Was that place across the street near the pool 🏊 where he almost went to blows with 🌽 💥 corn pop ?

Good grief. I’m convinced his writers secretly hate him. Who came up with the phrasing for that painful anecdotal nugget?

An articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking black man to boot. Wonder if he smelled good?
Team Trump think they know better than Joe Biden how many grandchildren he has (video) https://t.co/2md221bjgn
