Yes, the gaffe-prone vice president with the notoriously salty tongue did it again over the weekend during a visit to a custard shop in Glendale, Wis., with Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.). After Biden asked what he owed for his tasty frozen treat, Kopp's Frozen Custard manager Scott Borkin quipped, "Don't worry, it's on the house. ... Lower our taxes and we'll call it even."
iden initially brushed off Borkin's comment — but then circled back to the manager and asked, "Why don't you say something nice instead of being a smarta-- all the time?" You can watch a report on the incident below, together with the shop manager's reaction, below (video courtesy of Fox News):
Borkin said that the vice president came over to him later and whispered that he was just playing around. But the store manager reported he was still taken aback by Biden's strong reaction to his comment. "It didn't seem right, especially from someone in his position," Borkin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Appearing on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Monday morning, Borkin said that he still finds it "kind of shocking to hear that come out of his mouth," adding, "I was thrown by it. I wasn't expecting that, especially from, you know, the No. 2 in charge of our country."
