Me Joe Biden. Me like ice cream.
Vice President Joe Biden surprised patrons at an Ohio Dairy Queen with an unannounced visit Wednesday night.
On a two-day campaign swing through the Buckeye state, Biden stopped in the Hollywood City Center Dairy Queen in Steubenville, Ohio for a cone.
Locals Chris and Diane Murphy, stopping at the shop after their daughter’s softball game, were surprised by the vice president’s unexpected arrival.
“My daughter had played a softball game at Beaver Local and we ran into traffic on state Route 7 coming home. We had heard Vice President Biden was coming to the city but never expected to see him walk into Dairy Queen,” Chris Murphy told reporters traveling with the vice president.
Biden spotted the Murphy children and offered to buy them ice cream after some banter.
“Do you play football?” Biden asked one of them. “I played when I was in school. Where do you play at?”
“Catholic Central High School,” he replied.
“How about some ice cream?” Biden then asked.
