“You know, you’re supposed to cough into your elbow,” Tapper said, holding up his arm.

“No, actually that’s true, but fortunately I’m alone in my home but that’s okay,” Biden said, a seemingly dubious response since there was undoubtedly a television crew present since he was on TV at the moment.

“Do it into your elbow,” Tapper lectured, prompting a laugh from Biden.
