Biden manages to anger everyone over bad flu advice
It could be Vice President Biden's biggest gaffe in ..... weeks!
If you didn't hear about Biden's appearance on the Today Show, he basically said that in order to remain safe from the flu, people should avoid cars, planes, classrooms, trains, subways, and confined spaces.
Where should they go? Biden said the "middle of a field" was pretty safe. (You can read more about it here).
When asked about his remarks, Gibbs responded, "What the vice president meant to say was ... if you feel sick, if you exhibit flu-like symptoms ... you should take precautions and you should limit your travel.."
"With all due respect, and I sympathize with you trying to explain the vice president's comments, that's not even remotely close to what he said," Tapper said.
"I understand what he said, and I'm telling you what he meant to say," Gibbs said to an avalanche of laughter.
Of course, only moments after Biden got off the set of the Today Show, his press office -- well versed in this routine -- sent out a statement clarifying what he meant. You can read about that here.
