If you wanna hire Joe Biden to give a speech, it's kind of like booking Van Halen.
Last month the Broward Center in Florida Joe Biden wasn’t just a former vice president and 2020 presidential hopeful - he was a rock star (and not in a good way).
According to his contract, he had very strict demands for his dressing room, food catering and a $150,000 price tag.
His dinner demands? Angel hair pomodoro, caprese salad and raspberry sorbet with biscotti, which is all spelled out in his contract. He also demands his dressing room have plenty of water, Coke Zero, regular Coke, orange Gatorade, black coffee, mixed nuts and a fruit plate.
Good lord! Does Joe Biden play bass for the Rolling Stones?!
No, but he is represented by the mega talent Creative Artists Agency. They demanded his dressing room say, "VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN." in big letters on the door.
So how much does it cost to see this pasta-eating, Gatorade-drinking rich guy speak?
Tickets for the event were priced between $50 and $150, but there was also a VIP package available for $300 that includes a photo with Shotgun Joe (but no corporate logos or brand names are allowed in the picture).
Joe Biden is a walking, talking, swamp creature. He represents everything that's horrible about politicians.
