Joe Biden Loves Ice Cream and Can't Stop Talking About It

Joe Biden really loves ice cream. Seriously. That’s not the punchline to a joke or a meme. That’s just actual Joe Biden talkin' bout ice cream. 

Confirming his die-hard devotion to the scrumptious dairy dessert, Vice President Joe Biden once again declared his love of ice cream in a speech at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream's headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. The statement reads as follows:

"My name is Joe Biden, and I love ice cream. You all think I'm kidding — I'm not. I eat more ice cream than three other people you'd like to be with, all at once.” 

Ice cream enthusiasts should take comfort in knowing Biden is no flip-flopper when it comes to his stance on ice cream. His recent statement echoes another made during a phone call with The Penny Ice Creamery. On that occasion, the Vice President proclaimed:

“I am a genuine lover of ice cream. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. But I eat a lot of ice cream.”

Sadly, Uncle Joe wasn't wearing aviator sunglasses or gripping a vanilla cone when he issued either statement, which is a real tragedy. Still, he seems sincere. 

It’s a great day for America, and ice cream. But mostly, America.
