The 2016 campaign has officially begun, and let it be known that Joe Biden is the first to start officially contacting voters ahead of the Iowa caucus.
Apparently, Joe Biden has a rabid 3-year-old fan in Iowa who likes to talk to her imaginary friend, also Joe Biden, on her fake plastic cell phone. Considering that her parents might be potential participants in the caucus system, Joe Biden decided to give his number one fan in middle America a real, live, phone call last Wednesday.
Avery’s grandmother, Becky Burke, posted a message on Joe Biden’s White House website eight months ago telling him about his young fan. She never gave it a second thought until her phone rang Wednesday night.
“He said ‘This is Joe Biden’ and I said, ‘Who the hell is this?’ And he said, ‘This is Joe Biden,’ and I said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry I said that to you,” Burke said.
Biden told Burke he saw her note on his desk and thought he’d call. During a five-minute conversation they talked family and politics. Burke said Biden told a few stories about his grandchildren.
“He apologized for taking up my time and I said, ‘Oh it’s OK, it’s OK,’” Burke said.
No word on whether Joe Biden and the three year old discussed domestic or foreign policy.
