During the swearing-in ceremony of new Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden grasped the shoulders of and whispered something to Carter’s wife, Stephanie, in what made for the latest awkward Biden gaffe and predictably spread on social media throughout the remainder of the day.

When it came to receiving a lighthearted mention in the network evening newscasts on Tuesday night, this new example of the Vice President causing headlines apparently made none with the networks. This omission follows the networks also ignoring Biden on Thursday evening after he referred to a former Democratic Congressman from Iowa as his “old butt buddy.”
