Former Vice President Joe Biden can’t seem to keep his hands to himself!
During an interview Thursday night with CNN host Jake Tapper, Biden gave a bizarre story this week about how he broke his foot.
Biden claimed that he was getting out of the shower when his dog Major approached him with a ball.
He said he went to grab the ball to throw it and then grabbed the dog’s tail.
“The little pup dropped a ball in front of me, for me to grab the ball, and I’m walking in this little alley-way to get to the bedroom, and I grabbed the ball like this,” said Biden, who gestured that he was leaning over to pick up the toy.
“He ran, and I was joking running after him to grab his tail, and what happened was he slid on a throw rug, and I tripped on the rug he slid on,” he said.

Last week, it was revealed that Biden had a fractured in his foot and will likely require a walking boot for several weeks after slipping while playing with his dog Major.
Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s doctor, originally said that the president-elect had “sustained a sprain of his right foot” and initial X-rays showed “no obvious fracture.”
“A follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot,” O’Connor said in a statement later in the evening.
“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor added.
Biden visited Delaware Orthopedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware, “out of an abundance of caution.”
“After defeating President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 presidential election, Biden will be the oldest person ever to assume the office when he enters the White House on Jan. 20. His health is likely to be watched closely by allies and opponents alike,” Reuters reported.
The president-elect turned 78 last week, which will make him the oldest president inaugurated into office in U.S. history.
Major is one of two of the Bidens’ German Shepherds and is set to become the first rescue dog to live in the White House. The Biden’s adopted him from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018.
The president-elect and his wife are also planning on bringing a cat to accompany them in the White House after Inauguration Day in January.
