Biden Visits Ukraine: "So Many Beautiful Women"

Posted: Updated:

Vice President Joe Biden met with Ukraine President Viktor Yushchenko In Kiev Tuesday to voice support for the country's NATO bid and its embrace of the West, but the conversation was not all serious geo-political business, judging by the pool report. While sitting around a pub in the late afternoon the conversation drifted--inevitably?-to the topic of churches... and beautiful women.

VPOTUS and Yushchenko were seated a table in the back of the pub with their two translators, the mayor and vice mayor of Kiev, and the head of the presidential secretariat. Pool joined conversation in the middle, but Yushchenko was talking about Ukrainian churches. VPOTUS overheard saying: "I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn't say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That's my observation." Unclear who Frenchman VPOTUS was referring to. "It's certain you have so many beautiful women."
