Joe Biden was trying to keep a low profile in Washington, D.C., but it was a spectacular failure.
As the former vice president was attempting to get into a vehicle, he was angrily confronted by Code Pink protesters.

“I’m really disappointed in the position you’re taking on Venezuela,” Ariel Gold, Code Pink’s co-director told Biden, holding a camera in his face.
“You admitted that you made a mistake with Iraq,” she continued as he responded, “What, what, what do you mean?”
“And it’s dangerous to make the same mistake again,” Gold continued.
“But this is—we should not be going to war,” Biden said.
As he attempted to get away, others approached, shouting, “Shame on you! Shame on you!”
“Thank you,” he said with a smirk, “thank you, be careful,” he said as he attempted to close the door.
“Shame on you for sending so many black people to jail!” another woman yelled, as they pursued Biden’s vehicle.
“Shame on you! No one wants you to run for president except corporations!”
Biden’s car drove down the street with the door hanging open in an attempt to get away from the women.
He finally slammed the door in their faces and they stopped heckling him.
