Creepy Uncle Joe is back at it again! Just a month after pledging to respect women's space, he gets up and personal with a 10-year-old girl and tells her that she is good-looking. There's no wonder he is under such criticism!
No matter what your political affiliation, this is a concerning issue!
During a rally on Tuesday night in Houston, Biden spoke about how our country is divided and then touched on America's immigrant heritage. That's when he looked at a little girl and told her, "I'll bet you're as bright as you are good-looking."

While there are a hundred other ways he could have conveyed his message, he chose the creepiest and most inappropriate considering his past.
Then Biden asked what her favorite subject is in school, to which she answered, "Journalism." This is where it gets even touchier (pun intended). The former vice president took the little girl to the back of the room to where the reporters sat, and put his hands on her shoulders while addressing the media.

To make matters worse, this kid's clueless mother then took her up for a photo with the creep after the event.
Perhaps this would have seemed more innocent if the presidential candidate wasn't already facing allegations from several women who claim he made them feel uncomfortable with unwanted physical contact. Not to mention, these allegations are plastered with photos and videos showing just how creepy he really is.
In April, Biden pledged to "be much more mindful" of "personal space." He said, "Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I've heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That's my responsibility and I will meet it."
The internet is not letting Biden live down this incident either. The Twitterphere is buzzing with backlash, even from liberals:
In a somewhat odd moment at tonight's AFT town hall, Biden tells a 10-year-old girl, “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking." He takes her over to the assembled reporters, then stands behind her and puts his hands on her shoulders while he's talking.

Not only is Joe Biden's creepiness around young girls not something to be dismissed lightly, his refusal to fully apologize and change his ways is indicative of how little he cares about sexual assault. We deserve a meaningful improvement over Donald Trump: Joe ain't it.

Joe Biden's campaign brings him out for a rare town hall. Instantly does what he promised he wouldn't: makes a cringe-worthy comment, invades a young girl's space with lots of touching. He doesn't learn from mistakes, understand the moment. Sincerely fear Trump would destroy him.
