Tom Brokaw: Why is Biden Laughing During Discussion of Iran Nuke Program?
Both Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough agreed that âto know Joe is to love him,â despite poll results pointing to the contrary. Brokaw, however, approached the Vice Presidentâs performance a bit more critically, saying that he simply âcanât contain himselfâ before pointing to the fact that Biden continued to smirk or laugh while he and Ryan discussed serious, solemn issues like Iran and Libya.
âI donât think he was laughing,â said Brzezinski, but rather showed that he was âamusedâ at Ryanâs approach to these issues.
Itâs about tone, Brokaw argued, regardless of oneâs level of amusement, and he maintained that Bidenâs demeanor should have been âdialed downâ during discussion about critical, serious matters.
