Vice President Joe Biden was speaking at a Jewish American Heritage Month reception in Washington on Tuesday and decided to join in on the running jokes about President Obama's affinity for his teleprompter.

According to a pool report, after asking that the teleprompter in the room be taken down, Biden joked: “You can’t tell Barack that the teleprompter’s down. The standing joke in the office is Barack’s learning to speak without a teleprompter; I’m learning to speak with one.”
