Joe Biden: ‘I May Be a White Boy, But I Can Jump’

There’s a reason we have an Onion-created alt-universe version of Joe Biden: because Joe Biden does and says the kind of things that make you shake your head and go “Classic Biden!” And our vice president is at it again, this time with a 90s reference that could have truly, only come out of the mouth of Joe Biden.

Tonight the Bidens hosted a reception at the Naval Observatory in honor of Black History Month. There were a number of high-profile black officials there, including Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, Valerie Jarrett, and NBA star-turned-Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson.

And because Joe Biden is Joe Biden, when he talked about Johnson’s NBA past, this is what he said.

“I told the president, next game, I’ve got him,” Biden said of the former NBA star, “I may be a white boy, but I can jump.”

Classic Biden!
