Joe Biden Steals Baby’s Pacifier, Puts It In His Mouth

Ordinary politicians kiss babies — but our vice president, Joe Biden, is no ordinary politician. For proof, we have this photo of him stealing a baby's pacifier and putting it in his mouth.  The baffled child here is former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's grandson, Jasper, who's just over a year old. The picture was taken by his mom, Georgina Bloomberg, and posted on her Facebook page. The caption: "What's a boy to do when the Vice President steals your pacifier?"

What's a boy to do when the Vice President steals your pacifier?

The general reaction, as seen in the comments, seems fall on a line between "Uh..." and "Gross."  The pacifier theft happened at the British Embassy in Washington D.C. on Wednesday where Bloomberg was receiving an honor — specifically he was made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Biden spoke at the event, but it was closed to the press, so we can't say for certain if robbing a baby was the only goofy thing Biden did that night. We're betting not.
