Footage of Biden Describing Being Arrested at Capitol Surfaces, Raises Questions Dems Don’t Want to Hear
This is one Joe Biden story that raises questions Democrats don’t want to answer. The man who’s now the president of the United States took to the “Late Show with David Letterman” in 2007 with a story for the late-night comic about his purported arrest as a young man for illegally entering the U.S. Senate chamber on a visit to Washington and sitting in the presiding officer’s chair. It was meant as an amusing anecdote, no doubt, but a viewer in 2021 will be struck by something else entirely. In the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion that has left a deep imprint on the nation’s politics as well as its capital city (National Guard units are expected to be stationed in D.C. at least another month), jokes about criminal trespass in the seat of government take on a new light.
