(I might have added to the description that he is one heartbeat away from the presidency but that post has hardly been a citadel of decorum and dignity, especially ever since the president became the proud owner of a selfie stick.)
Here is the tweet of the stage at the swearing-in ceremony of the next Secretary of Defense.

So inexplicably egregious was Biden’s behavior that even the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza felt impelled to comment:

Maybe Biden should claim, as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did recently for her own dereliction, that he was not 100% sober.
