From the Washington Examiner:
Vice President Joe Biden indicated Monday that he could be open to running for the White House in 2020.
“I am going to run in 2020,” Biden said when asked by reporters on Monday whether he would run again.
Reporters asked Biden several times to clarify his statement, which seemed like it might have been a joke. “Just to be clear, were you kidding about running for president in 2020?” a reporter asked.
He would be 78 if he ran in 2020!! Which is absurd.
Well there you go. The 2020 race has begun!!! Shoot me now.
