Joe Biden’s official campaign for the Democrat nomination is about to enter its very first weekend of campaigning, and today the former veep was offered a softball question that was begging to be hit out of the park. Instead, this happened:

Maybe having his personal behavior scrutinized more is having an effect on Biden’s swagger.

Voting public: "Why should we vote for you?"
Biden: "That's up to you to decide."

Perhaps “Wait, what?” would be a good Biden 2020 campaign slogan.
