(bigleaguepolitics) – Joe Biden has once again been accused of creepy behavior after he went off script during a speech to compliment a young girl in the audience.
The president was speaking to military families at Joint Base Langley Eustis in Virginia on Friday when he uttered his eyebrow-raising remarks. Noticing the young daughter of a veteran in the crowd, Biden complimented her hair and then said she looked 19 years old with the way she was sitting.
“I love those barrettes in your hair,” Biden said to her. “Man, I’ll tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”
The White House livestream also captured the sign language interpreter’s reaction, showing her to be a bit puzzled and perhaps uncomfortable with the president’s remarks.
The purpose of Biden’s Friday speech was to address military veterans and their families ahead of Memorial Day weekend.
In other Biden-related news, Big League Politics recently reported that the president’s “honeymoon phase” could come to an abrupt end if certain trends continue:
President Joe Biden has had decent approval ratings throughout his first four months in the Oval Office. Yet the underlying data suggests that his “honeymoon phase” is unlikely to last.
The data comes from a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris survey of 1,872 registered voters conducted April 27-29. Democrats are significantly more optimistic than Republicans about the United States’ current trajectory, revealing a general sense of optimism among those surveyed because of economic recovery and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
