Nuclear codes are not static, and if they are, that's a giant security failure. They are probably on encrypted keys that change all the time.
And no Aide would have access to nuclear codes, only POTUS does. He doesn't even have access.
I dunno why he'd have said something so foolish but it can't possibly be true.
Oh no I wasn't scolding you, sorry if it came out that way.
I just think old Biden got caught in the moment as he often does and said some crazy stuff.
Saying "there's a guy that follows me, right back here" is hardly exposing an individual... especially when he waves his hand to a crowd of people. There are many secret service people who follow him around.

As far as I understand it, Nuclear Codes would only be presented to the VP by the Joint Chiefs of Staff upon being sworn in as POTUS.
But I could be wrong about that.

I would trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes before I would trust the mentally questionable Hillary Clinton with them. As far as Biden goes, he is just too weird and too emotionally wacky. In the heat of his wacky rhetoric, he always lets something slip that just sounds off. If what he said is true, he just endangered the lives of those men/women that "follow" him around.
