Joe Biden smiled on Tuesday as he handed out the National Medal of Arts to notables including Bruce Springsteen, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and writer Colson Whitehead, cracking jokes about their work and his own ambitions for 2024.
After listing Springsteen’s many accomplishments, President He said Some people are “born to run” for public office, a reference to the famous Springsteen anthem of the same name.
When it came time to award Whitehead his medal, Biden grabbed the author’s back-to-back Pulitzer Prizes for his fiction Underground railway And Nickel Boys.
“How the hell did you do that? Beautiful good man. I’m looking after myself on a string,” Biden said.
Louis-Dreyfus, meanwhile, was awarded the medal, “for a sense of humor and wit that helped reshape American culture, as one of the most decorated comedians of our time” who “blasted a path for women in comedy and across American life through her commitment to excellence and the strength of her example,” said one of the announcers.
Biden had a more gentle note to offer, referring to the famous role played by Louis-Dreyfus vice president as fictional Vice President Selina Meyer.
“I’ll talk to Julia later about whether she likes being vice president or president better,” Mr. Biden, who previously served as vice president during the Obama administration, said. He said. “I have to find out.”
The president wasn’t the only one having fun.
While accepting her award, Louis-Dreyfus displayed some of the physical comedy for which she is best known SeinfeldAnd He pretends to be saddled with the huge medallion She accepts.
Other award recipients include singer Gladys Knight and writer and director Mindy Kaling.
