Joe Biden's remark to a young schoolgirl in Virginia saying "looks 19" has faced criticism for being creepy.
President Biden made the attempted compliment during a speech at a military base in Virginia on Friday. Biden along with first lady Jill Biden spoke at the Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia for Memorial Day weekend where he praised the efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19 and the United States’ successful vaccine rollout.
Biden went slightly off when he referred to an elementary school girl saying, “I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”
People have responded to the president's remarks as creepy and sick by people across the political spectrum, though Republicans are leading it.
Critics have long used Biden’s history of inappropriate comments to women and a string of sexual assault allegations to bash the current president.
Once the former president Trump's son Donald Trump Junior had once gone on to say, Joe Biden a Pedophile.
