WASHINGTON D.C. – During last night’s White House meeting, Joe Biden’s forehead gained most of the attention!
Sky News host, Kay Burley, is going to need some time to remove her foot from her mouth. Burley will be forever known for ill-judged remark about Joe Biden’s Ash Wednesday mark.
Burley made her remarks during a discussion with Sky News’ US correspondent following a televised address from Vice President Biden on the state of the US economy. Speaking out loud about the mark, Burley suggested that the vice president might “have walked into a door,” while her co-host suggested that he might have had an accident at the Winter Olympics in Canada.
Burley should have stopped there, but she didn’t. “He’s probably been having a go on those tea trays down the luge or something… It certainly looks like quite a bruise, doesn’t it?” she added, digging her hole just a bit deeper. Fortunately, for her sake, she was informed of her error during the next commercial break and offered her apologies.
“I know that I am a very bad Catholic,” Burley said. “I know now that it is Ash Wednesday and I know that those are ashes on his forehead. I hang my head in shame. I’ll be back in just a moment.”
