President Biden raised eyebrows on Friday when he went over the top complimenting a little girl on her appearance during remarks at a Virginia military base.
“I love those barrettes in your hair, man,” Biden said. “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.”
The New York Post reports that the girl in question, who appeared to be elementary school age, had joined her parents and two older brothers on the podium while her mother introduced the president at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia.
Biden’s bizarre aside was noted and tweeted by The Post Millennial, causing uproar on Twitter.
“Um, wut,” tweeted RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan, while Ricochet editor-in-chief Jon Gabriel chimed in, “dude has issues.”
“This is going to be his last straw,” conservative podcast host and Spectator USA contributor Stephen Miller captioned an image of Kathy Bates taking a sledgehammer to James Caan’s legs in the movie “Misery.” “We’re not going to see him [Biden] for the next two weeks.”
