Nah, nothing homoerotic about that.

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama joked that his vice president looked good in a swimsuit and said screw-ups can happen in government as he discussed the Libya controversy, mixing comedy and serious issues in an appearance on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

In a appeal to young voters, Obama largely played it straight in his sixth appearance on the liberal-leaning comedy show, which enjoys a broad following among younger viewers. […]

The edgy humor that Stewart is known for surfaced occasionally.

“How many times a week does Biden show up in a wet bathing suit to a meeting?” Stewart asked in an unprompted reference to Vice President Joe Biden.

“I had to put out a presidential directive on that. We had to stop that,” Obama said. “I gotta say, though, he looks pretty good.”
