    Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Thursday that President-elect Donald Trump won the election by diverting the media’s attention away from serious issues to scandals and outrageous rhetoric. “When a guy talks about grabbing a woman’s private parts, when a guy says some of the incredibly outrageous things that were said, it sucks up all the oxygen in the air,” Mr. Biden said in an address at the New York University School of Law. “There wasn’t much of a discussion of issues, even in the debates.”

    Vice President Joe Biden wielded a military-style assault weapon (of war) in front of a group of children, the Washington Free Beacon has learned. The following image, obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon, shows Biden wielded what appears to be bright yellow object resembling an “assault weapon.” The photo was taken at the vice president’s annual summer kick-off party at the Naval Observatory. It is unclear if the weapon is loaded. The shocking image is at odds with Biden’s support for a ban on “military-style assault weapons.” In 2013, Biden told NPR that he “hasn’t given up” his pursuit...

    Springfield, Ill. -- Barack Obama used his first joint appearance with his vice presidential nominee, Sen. Joseph Biden, to push a more populist economic message, emphasizing his running mate's blue-collar roots and painting Republican Sen. John McCain as out of touch.

The two men plan to take a tour of economically-stressed...
