• What Do Joe Biden and Kanye West Have in Common?

    Who knew Kanye West and Joe Biden were such kindred spirits?

    Imma let Joe prove this in just a moment, but in the meantime, the setup.

    On Friday night, Kanye held a concert in Sydney, Australia. It was there that he asked his entire audience to stand up.

    I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stand up, unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and sh*t,” preached the articulate rapper. “Imma see you if you ain’t standing up, believe me. I’m very good at that.”

    Well, as it turns out, Kanye isn’t “very good at that.” At all. Sticking to his promise to halt the show unless EVERYONE stood up, West did just that when he spotted a pair of people still in their seats. It wasn’t until one of them waved a prosthetic limb in the air that he realized they most likely had “special parking and sh*t.”

    Okay, you fine,” responded the frequently impulsive star, whom President Obama once referred to as a “jackass.”

    It would have been cringe-worthy enough if it had all ended there, but unshockingly, it did not.

    Yeezus quickly moved onto the next fan, demanding proof that this person was ALSO handicapped. “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song. It’s unbelievable,” West whined. He then actually sent his bodyguard into the audience to confirm that the second fan was indeed seated in a wheelchair.

    He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine,” proclaimed The Tremendous Jackass.

    But back to the lede. What do Kanye and Joey Biden have in common?

    Why, this, of course!

    Granted, it’s not quite as painful as watching what Kanye did on Friday night, but Joseph Robinette Biden does tend to suffer from the same Foot-in-Mouth disease that so frequently afflicts Kanye “Imma Let You Finish” West. Though Biden probably wins when it comes to the sheer number of gaffes permeating his record.

    Still, at least neither Kanye nor Biden made fun of the Special Olympics. Only President Obama himself would be that stupid.
