Former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden came clean on why he decided to come to Cornell University during the start of his speech at the Senior Convocation ceremony Saturday.
“I have to admit the real reason I came today – I love ice cream,” Biden said, referencing the new Big Red, White and Biden ice cream produced by the Cornell Dairy. “I’m the only Irishman you guys know who has never had a drink and loves ice cream. And your dean of the school of agriculture told me that this is the best ice cream because you have the smartest cows.”
Cornell University officials estimate about 30,200 people attended the ceremony at Schoelkopf Field, featuring the former vice president delivering the keynote address.
