Biden jokes about 2016 announcement

Had it not been the debut night for Seth Meyers as the new host of NBC’s “Late Night,” Vice President Joe Biden may have revealed his plans for 2016.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum asked the Vice President if he would share his thoughts on a potential presidential run in 2016.

“I was planning on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight’s your night,” Biden joked. “So I hope you’ll invite me back.”

The Vice President wasn’t ready to make any announcement but Meyer’s other first-night guest was quick to respond.

“I’m going to run for president,” said former “SNL” co-star Amy Poehler.

It wasn’t the first time Poehler and Biden have appeared together in front of cameras. Vice President Biden made a cameo on Poehler’s NBC small-town government sitcom “Parks and Recreation” in 2012.

Biden did share some details about the much discussed moment from this year’s State of the Union Address, when he was seen emphatically pointing to an unnamed individual on the House Floor.

“A senior senator said, ‘Look Joe I know you and Barack are friends but don’t stand up on every damn thing he says,’” said the Vice President. “I counted 17 times this particular senator stood up in front of the president. So I went like this to point to him. Talk about a suck up.”

The late night talk shown scene isn’t unfamiliar territory for Biden with this being his third appearance.

He appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno in 2010 and read the Top 10 List on “The Late Show” with David Letterman in 2012.

Biden has not forgotten about daytime television either.

Tuesday he will tape an appearance on “The View.” It will be his fourth time visiting the daytime talk show.

    I don't know about Biden in 2016 but those chairs don't look too comfortable.
