Joe Biden jokingly suggests Obama should nominate Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court

Vice President Joe Biden totally crushed his speech at the Gridiron Dinner on Saturday, with a lot of Republican politicians bearing the brunt of his searing humor. In one of his best quips, Biden came up with a genius way for President Obama to get a Supreme Court bench he's truly happy with:

"Ted Cruz? An inspiration to every kid in America who worries that he'll never be able to run for president because nobody likes him. He's running," Biden said. "And look, I told Barack, if you really, really want to remake the Supreme Court, nominate Cruz. Before you know it, you'll have eight vacancies."

Biden also worked in jabs at Donald Trump, John Boehner, and Chris Christie. Head to Politico for the rundown.
