Vice President Joe Biden provided some laughter during his Tuesday appearance at the Rabbinical Assembly in Atlanta, by crossing himself as he was being introduced.

“Were Joe Biden not the Vice President of the United States, but still a senator from the state of Delaware, a position that he held with great distinction for 36 years, it would still be a signal…”, said the rabbi introducing Biden.  The Vice President, standing behind the rabbi, crossed himself and looked upwards, noting afterwards that “36 years is a long time”.

This caused the crowd to erupt in laughter as Biden was getting ready to speak.

“I’ll try that again. Were he still a senator from the state of Delaware for a long time…”, the rabbi said, during his introduction.
