Best of the vice president's 'Bidenisms'
Washington CNN —  

Who among us hasn’t faced the dilemma that confronted 15-month-old Jasper Bloomberg on Wednesday when Vice President Joe Biden stole the pacifier straight out of his mouth?

It’s a question that apparently stumped his mother, Georgina Bloomberg, daughter of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who posted a picture of Biden defiantly sucking on Jasper’s pacifier while he holds the toddler in his arms.

“What’s a boy to do when the Vice President steals your pacifier?” she asked.

But Jasper evidently took it in stride. The toddler appears unfazed in the picture, appraising Biden’s pucker with the cool equanimity befitting a Bloomberg.

According to the New York Post, which first reported the news, the theft took place during a ceremony at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday where Bloomberg was made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
