(Newser) – Joe Biden recounted his infamous F-bomb moment during an appearance on The View today, telling the ladies that President Obama was "laughing like the devil" about it afterward. Biden said he had no idea the microphone would pick up his "big fucking deal" comment at the health care bill signing. “I was just thankful my mother couldn’t hear it,” he said. “It was a little embarrassing.”

As the two men walked to a limo for their next event, Obama began cracking up. When Biden asked what was so funny, Obama replied: “Katie, my secretary, told me when you said that to me, everybody could hear it.” Video from Mediaite is in the gallery.
