Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday greeted workers of the Environmental Protection Agency for the first post-government shutdown day. From a pool report describing the scene:
[Biden] carried a few containers of “Coffee Cake Bites” – apparently $5 each per the sticker, and “Baked from scratch” with no trans fats.
“I brought some muffins!” the VP said as he arrived at the security desk, placing the muffins down. And, seeing a sign on the desk that read that “All visitors must be escorted at all times,” VP announced: “I’d like to be escorted!”
