Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer zinged Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated smiling during Thursday’s debate, saying his preparation must have been watching the film “The Shining” on repeat.
“One would think that Biden’s debate preparation was watching repeatedly ‘The Shining,’ and I think he did an excellent imitation of Jack Nicholson,” Krauthammer said on Fox News Friday.
Critics have blasted the vice president for smiling, interrupting and laughing during his face-off against Paul Ryan. The Republican National Committee quickly put out an ad about it titled, “Laughing at the Issues.”
