"Sorry, I'm doing this because maybe when I need a job, Ray Ban may have me as a sponsor," Biden joked
Biden and his sunglasses have become somewhat iconic over the years
Vice President Joe Biden took a moment in the middle of a campaign speech Wednesday to stump for something a little less political: his Ray Ban sunglasses.
The November sun was apparently shining in the vice president’s eyes, leading him to put on his signature shades while speaking about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Tampa, Florida.
The vice president received some cheers from the audience as he put the sunglasses on, to which he jokingly replied: “Sorry, I’m doing this because maybe when I need a job, Ray Ban may have me as a sponsor.”
Biden and his sunglasses have become somewhat iconic over the course of his eight years in the Obama administration – even making an appearance in a White House video for the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner.
