Freudian slip, or something more? Could it be that Joe Biden hints at a presidential run during his speech at the State Society of Iowa gala? Some seem to believe that Biden’s gaffe where he claims he’s “president of the United States” implies that he is working on his own presidential campaign for 2016.
It all started when Biden gave a speech during the State Society of Iowa event. As can be seen in the above video, he states, “I’m proud to be the president of the United States.”After a few seconds, the audience present explodes with laughter and someone has to let Biden know his mistake.
Biden quickly amends himself by saying he’s “vice president of the United States,” but some have interpreted his slip-up to be something more. Rumors of his alleged run in 2016 have been swirling for a while, and early polls show he’d be a popular candidate. Of course, a lot can change by the time 2016 rolls around, so for now we’ll just count this as Biden being Biden.
