(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) President Joe Biden stunned a TV audience on Monday when he began his remarks following a mass shooting at a Christian school by babbling about his favorite ice cream flavor and creeping on “good-looking” kids.
“My name is Joe Biden. I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband and I eat Jeni’s Ice Cream, chocolate chip,” Biden joked at the Women’s Business Summit. “I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream here. By the way, I have a whole refrigerator-full upstairs. You think I’m kidding? I’m not.”
A stunned Fox News correspondent, who had interrupted programing to capture the president’s remarks with a live-feed from the White House after the Nashville mass shooting, apologized to viewers for the insulting tone of Biden’s rambling.
“It’s rather surprising,” agreed a Fox News anchor, after dropping the live-feed. “I thought a somber President Biden would come to the podium and address the school shooting. He’s yukking it up with the crowd.”
When he was done with his ice cream review, Biden turned his attention to creeping on youngsters in the crowd, asking “Who are those good-looking kids back there?”
Biden eventually addressed the school shooting by taking advantage of the tragedy to once again call for more gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens, but not before getting ripped for his misplaced jocularity at the summit.
While the public expected and deserved a president who could act as “comforter-in-chief,” what they got instead was “an old, dementia-riddled man with full Depends wobbling around talking about how much he loves ice cream, and then creeping on children,” said pundit Benny Johnson, who called Biden’s comments “an insult” that was “very, very hard to watch.”
It got progressively worse as Biden continued his disjointed ramble.
“It’s pretty dull when you’ve been in public life as long as I have, and you’re know for two things: Chocolate chip ice cream and Ray-Ban sunglasses. What the hell?” Biden groused.

“I am not surprised by any of this. We have a literal dementia patient as president,” Matt Walsh wrote of Biden’s performance.
Others were equally critical, but not surprised by Biden’s attitude.
“Why are people shocked Biden started joking and talking about ice cream before mentioning those who were killed in Nashville?” tweeted one disgusted viewer. “I mean, he did look at his watch in front of the coffins of troops who were killed in Kabul. He’s a disgrace.”
