Joe Biden a “menschy dude,” says Doug Emhoff
Potential Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff has a new nickname for Joe Biden: “mensch.”
During a Wednesday night fundraiser with Lawyers for Biden, Emhoff referred to the Democratic presidential candidate as a “menschy dude,” Jewish Insider reported.
Emhoff also used the term on September 3, at the Pennsylvania launch of Jewish Americans for Biden.
“Joe Biden is a mensch, and we need a mensch in the White House. We need a mensch to restore the soul of this nation,” he said.
Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris has her own Yiddish-inflected nickname, bestowed by her Jewish stepchildren: “Momala.”
