Biden drenched by children with super-soakers

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's cordial annual media picnic turned into an all-out war between the vice president and children of journalists in attendance.

The vice president distributed high-powered water guns to the children gathered at his official residence and identified notable journalists for them to pursue.

Among the targets were CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Politico's Mike Allen.

Biden's team of warrior children then turned their weapons on the Vice President himself. Before it was over, Biden was super-soaked and smiling.

    Yes, teach them warmongering while they are young. That is the most promising technique.

    Go Joe! So nice to have a genuine VP for the people, and not some old warmonger (Cheeney), or some wannabes like anchor-baby Rubio or wide-body Christie.

    Cute story... I am sure that there is someone who will infer some political meaning where there isn't any.

    The children appear smarter than their parents when they turned against Biden. Middle class Joe didn't resonate on the children who will pay for Joe's excesses. Joe being middle class is a joke! Wealthy parents, best schools and living off the government all his working life. Another typical Democrat with no REAL world experience and a career politician.
    Wikipedia states Joe and Jill as Roman Catholics, must be similar to Pelosi, Catholics who don't follow the tenets of the Church. If their are true believers, eternal condemnation awaits.

    That's about all Biden is good practice. CNN must really be hard up for stories...

    A Democrat VP hands out guns. Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.

    This is just regular picnic fun. And CNN chose to run a story about it..... why? And under the "Politics" tab no less! In what universe is this political?
