Vice President Biden caught on mic; calls health care bill a ‘big f—ing deal’
“You did it,” Biden told his boss. “It’s a big f—ing deal.”
In response, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tweeted: “And yes Mr. Vice President, you’re right…”
This, of course, isn’t the first time the VP has been cause in a verbal gaffe. He was similarly caught on mic last year using the f-word while at an event with Amtrak to promote the stimulus plan.
“Oh give me a f—ing break,” Biden said in March 2009 to a former Senate colleague on a live mic.
Foul language may be a favorite for vice presidents. Ex-Veep Dick Cheney famously used the infamous phrase on several occasions during his two terms.
During a heated discussion on the Senate floor, Cheney reportedly told Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) to go “f— yourself.”
