If Joe Biden becomes president, we might be welcoming the Obamas back into prominent positions in our government!
In an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, forerunner for the Democrat presidential nomination to go head-to-head with Trump in the race for 2020 Joe Biden was asked if he would appoint former president Barack Obama to a position as Supreme Court Justice.
To this, Biden replied, “Hell yes!”
Then, he went a step further to state that Michelle would be his Vice President!
The suggestion of Vice President Michelle Obama was just a “joke,” Biden followed up with, to clarify.
However, with all his recent foot-in-mouth comments and gaffes which have included slurring President Trump’s name along with forgetting basic details like which state he is in, who knows what’s going on in Sleepy Joe’s head?!
Here's the clip of Biden "jokingly" suggesting that if he wins, he will appoint Barack Obama Supreme Court Justice and Michelle Obama Vice President of the USA:
The Los Angeles Times commented on Biden's answer to putting the Obamas back into government:
When Biden appeared on Colbert’s show in 2015, the host encouraged him to run for president. At the time, Biden was still grappling with the death of his son from brain cancer.
“You said I should run, so that’s why I’m running,” Biden quipped to Colbert on Wednesday night. “It’s your fault.”
Former President Obama — with whom Biden talks every few weeks — also came up in the conversation.
When asked if he would appoint the former commander-in-chief to the Supreme Court, Biden responded with no hesitation: “Yes. I don’t think he’d do it ... but he’s fully qualified.”
And when Colbert inquired whether he’d gotten advice from Michelle Obama, Biden responded: “Only to be my vice president.”
During his interview with Stephen Colbert, Biden also defended his trademark "gaffes" and laughed them off.
Apparently, he doesn't think forgetting critical details is a sign he shouldn't be running for president!

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says verbal missteps and factual errors he's made while campaigning aren't "substantive."
The former vice president made his case Wednesday in a CBS "Late Show" interview with host Stephen Colbert.
Biden agreed he's tripped over some details, but said it's not "relevant" whether some anecdote occurred when he was a senator or vice president.
Biden drew applause saying he doesn't get confused about matters like putting "kids in cages." That's a reference to President Donald Trump's immigration policy.
