Joe Biden Accidentally Tries to Sell Obamacare to Canadian Tourist

Vice President Joe Biden just can’t help being Joe Biden when he travels across this great country of ours. During a trip to Arizona this week, he sat himself down next to a young woman and did his best to convince her to sign up for Obamacare. The only problem? She was visiting from Canada.

The best part of this local news piece on the latest inadvertent Biden gaffe comes when 3TV News interviewed the woman, identified only as “Jackie, Visiting from Canada,” who basically said she felt bad for the vice president.

“I just didn’t know if I should say, ‘I’m sorry, [I’m] Canadian, don’t know if I can help you out, or…” she told the news station. But that doesn’t mean she’s against the United States embracing a health care system that comes closer to what Canadians have in her home country “He’s for it and I’m for it and I hope it works out here,” she added helpfully.

Well, at least he’s trying.
