President Obama veered from the script during Tuesday night's State of the Union address to show a little love to Vice President Biden.
After praising the Senate for passing a renewal of the Violence Against Women Act, which Biden wrote nearly 20 years ago, Obama turned to the vice president and said: “Good job, Joe.”
The president’s aside did not appear in the prepared transcript of his remarks.
The Senate passed the Violence Against Women Act earlier Tuesday in a 78-22 vote. The bill faces an uncertain future in the House, which passed a different version of the legislation in the last Congress.
Republicans in the House have several problems with the Senate bill, including the extension of domestic violence protections to Native Americans, LGBT victims and immigrants.
The Violence Against Women Act provides grants to victims of domestic violence in order to encourage victims to leave their abusive situations, among other provisions.
