    Tiffany Haddish Bumped Foreheads With Joe Biden And Caught His Smell

    By Ron Dicker,


    Comedian Tiffany Haddish said President Joe Biden touched his forehead to hers in a greeting at the White House last month, enabling her to catch a whiff of his scent.

    Sounds like the makings of a standup act right? Only this actually happened, and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had the video proof. (Watch it below.)

    Haddish, who had her bat mitzvah at age 40 , was recalling her visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on May 20 to celebrate Jewish Heritage Month . She riffed on how Biden always seemed like a robot to her. The description of their encounter got weirder and funnier.

    “He started leaning in and I was like, ‘Uh oh, he’s failing, systems failing. Am I going to have to hold him up?’” she recalled. “I’m trying to smile and I’m like, ‘Is he dyin’?’”

    His proximity also enabled her to catch a whiff of the commander in chief.

    “He had a scent,” she said. “He actually smelled good. He smelled like Johnson & Johnson and success. So somebody changed him.”

    Haddish, who stars in the hit action film “Bad Boys: Ride or Die,” joked that Biden’s forehead maneuver was the “the new white man’s way of figuring out if you got a wig on.”

    She was totally serious about the head bump, though. Check out the segment at the 4:45 mark:
