LM, Episode 517, 4/29/21, A Nice Old Man

Today is President Biden’s 100th day in office. For the first month, I continued the habit of waking up every morning to look at my phone to see what insanity the last president had tweeted during the night.  It’s always a relief when I realize America now has a president who cares about someone other than his own fragile ego.

But, after hearing an interview with The Late Show host, Stephen Colbert, maybe President Biden does have some vanity.  Colbert said after President Biden’s first visit on his show in 2015, Colbert commented, “What a nice, old man.”

The following day, President Biden called Colbert, saying, “It was nice meeting you, but if you ever call me a nice, old man again, I’ll kick your ass.”

Colbert said, “I’m sorry, I was wrong, you’re not nice at all.” 

Thankfully our current president seems to remember laughter matters.
