Vice President Joe Biden‘s Today show appearance this morning has been the talk of the cablers today, after the VP said, “I would tell members of my family, and I have, that I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now.” (And more — video after the jump.)
CNN, FNC and MSNBC were all live with Robert Gibbs‘ press briefing just after 2pmET today when ABC News’ Jake Tapper asked for clarification. After one attempt, Tapper followed up: “I sympathize with you trying to explain the Vice President’s comments, but that’s not even remotely close to what he said.” Then, to laughter from the room, Gibbs said, “I understand what he said, and I’m telling you what he meant to say.”
Below is the Tapper/Gibbs exchange, and after the jump, Biden’s Today show interview that started it all:
