Mark this down as another “Biden being Biden” moment.

On Thursday night, a questioner at the Harvard Institute of Politics identified himself as the vice president of the student body. A smiling Vice President Joe Biden then remarked, “Isn’t that a b***h?”

“I mean . . . excuse me. The vice president thing,” he said, according to CNN. Biden added: “I’m joking, I’m joking, I’m joking. Best decision I ever made. I’m joking—that was a joke.”

The student replied that he hopes Biden loves his job. “I do, actually. I love the guy I work with,” Biden said. The comments came during a forum on foreign policy.

Biden ran for President in 1988 and 2008 and has left the door open for another run in 2016.
