BIDEN to 10-Year-Old Girl: ‘I’ll Bet You’re as Bright As You Are Good Looking’
Former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden struck again Tuesday afternoon, grabbing a ten-year-old girl by the shoulders and putting his face inches from hers, just moments after telling the child she was “good looking.”
“I’ll bet you’re as smart as you are good looking,” Biden told the 10-year-old girl at an American Federation of Teachers town hall in Houston.
The girl was chosen to ask him a question, which he answered. Then, he got personal with her, complimenting her on her looks. When she said her favorite school subject was journalism, he grabbed her by the hand and walked her over to the press corp at the back of the room, where he placed his hands on her shoulders and his face right next to hers. The girl looked visibly uncomfortable.
Biden has been accused by several women of inappropriate touching.
