President Biden on Thursday jokingly apologized to children forced to listen to his “boring, boring, boring” remarks, as the White House recognized the day expanded parental tax credits get paid out.
Biden suggested that the kids be treated to ice cream for suffering through an event in the White House-adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
“For you, anybody under the age of 13, this has gotta be boring, boring, boring, right?” Biden said.
“But I tell you what, we’re gonna work something out here, so when this is over, your parents, your uncles, your aunts, whoever you’re with, they owe you some ice cream or something.”
Biden famously treats himself to ice cream at local businesses when he travels around the country.
