Watch Joe Biden Try to Name a Trump Accomplishment: ‘I Think He Married Very Well’

Joe Biden has been all over the news lately, with many suggesting he may be mounting a bid for the 2020 election.

It’s been a long time, however, since we’ve had a good old-fashioned Biden gaffe. Well, our long national nightmare is over. The former VP appeared on NBC’s Today, today, and participated in an awkward moment after being asked to praise President Donald Trump, responding “I think there’s a number of things he’s doing well.”

When pressed by Matt Lauer to offer specifics as to which of Trump’s accomplishments he admired, Biden became tongue-tied, ultimately offering up a strange compliment.

“Well, I think he married very well,” he joked, referring to First Lady Melania Trump, assumedly.

Biden elaborated that he simply couldn’t think of any one thing that Trump has done well, but did give him some credit for the entire government not imploding, a low bar, but whatever.

“I can’t think of something right now,” he said. “But I’m not being a wise-guy. There’s a lot of the country that’s still functioning.”

Biden also said that he was bothered by the “tone of the administration,” though did eventually praise the president for keeping some of the same military personnel in the Middle East.

The former vice president has been making the media rounds in order to promote his upcoming memoir.
