“You’re a really dull class. Come on, man. Is the sun getting to you?” Biden said Wednesday in Connecticut after comparing the Coast Guard with the Navy. “All kidding aside, being here together is a victory in and of itself.”
During his 25 minute-plus speech, Biden also admitted that he needed “absolution” after his college years at the University of Delaware for “minor infractions like using a fire extinguisher to hose down an RA,” the abbreviation for residential adviser. A president traditionally absolves military academy graduates of their own minor infractions.
