Biden Forgets About 'Chocolate Chip Ice Cream'

Seacrest inquired about the holiday cuisine President Biden had been savoring during his travels, which took him initially to Camp David and later to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands over the past week.
"I've been eating everything that's put in front of me!" Biden replied. "I've eaten pasta, which I love. Eaten a lot of chicken, chicken parmesan, I've been eating all Italian foods basically —"
"And ice cream," Jill Biden reminded the President.
"And ice cream," the president repeated, then added, "Chocolate chip ice cream."
