Joe Biden outs aide with the nuclear codes at Hillary Clinton campaign rally
Earlier today Joe Biden appeared at a campaign rally with Hillary Clinton and in addition to catching the unsteady former Secretary of State when she slipped off the podium the Vice President took a little time to out a military aide who was carrying the nuclear codes.
Here is more:
“There’s a guy that follows me right back here, has the nuclear codes,” Biden said, turning and pointing. “So God forbid anything happened to the president and I had to make a decision, the codes are with me.”
It seems to me as if he wanted the people in the crowd to understand how important he is but it certainly does not seem like a good idea to point out the person carrying the nuclear codes in a crowd of people you do not know. The ironic part of the story is that he was trying to make the case that Donald Trump could not be trusted with the codes. I guess he was just giving us an example of what a person looks like who cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes…
Of course this is not the first time Joe Biden has made a major gaffe related to national security, back in 2009 the Vice President actually revealed the location of the top secret bunker which was built to house the Vice President in a national emergency. (The same bunker it is believed hid Dick Cheney during September 11th.)
