The "Biden is a creepy old dude with dementia or whatever" thread



I knew that the Irish weren't considered to be white way back when, I guess that's back? I haven't been paying much attention to what goes on in those circles lately.

Funny aside about Biden being Irish....being Irish American for most in the US doesn't really mean anything aside from drinking green beer on St. Patrick's day, but, in Philly the Irish community there is still very connected to the old country, and Biden has always been hugely popular with them as throughout his career he's butted into UK politics re: Irish unification. He's been pissing off Tories for years and leaving all the other US pols scratching their heads as to why he even cares to involve himself.
