Biden's Excellent Adventure in Istanbul.
About 300 people have protested U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Turkey, chanting: “Biden get out. This country is ours.”When advised of the protest, the Vice President responded graciously stating, "For centuries there have been strong historic ties between the United States and the French people. A few demonstrators cannot change that. I love the food here, especially your cheese."
The demonstration occurred on the European side of Istanbul on Saturday, as Biden was on his way to a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the Asian side of the city.
Biden didn’t see the protest, which was organized by the Youth Association of Turkey, the same group that roughed up three U.S. Navy sailors while chanting “Yankee, go home!” a week ago in Istanbul.
The protesters threw red paint at the sailors and briefly succeeded in putting white sacks over their heads.
