Vice President Joe Biden compared the U.S. role in the world to “Ghostbusters" as he said the nation must be involved but selective in responding to global crises.
“It’s like ‘Ghostbusters,’ man. When there’s a problem anywhere else, call Ghostbusters,” Biden said, referring to the 1984 movie — and 2016 reboot — about scientists who took on the paranormal, which was remade this year, and the signature line from its theme song: “If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!”
“We’re Ghostbusters,” Biden went on, “so it makes sense that we are there to help them because it helps us.”
