Joe Biden slammed for touching 10-year-old girl on the shoulders and telling her she is 'good looking'
Biden was asked a question by a 10-year-old girl about how the country is divided at the moment during a town hall event that was held by the American Federation of Teachers in Houston
Before former Vice President Joe Biden announced plans of running as a Democratic candidate for the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump had given him the nickname of "Creepy Joe". This is, of course, just one of the many nicknames awarded to the man by Trump. Biden, however, does not do himself any favors by unconsciously trying to fit the description that was given to him by Trump.
Indy100 reported that during a town hall event that was held by the American Federation of Teachers in Houston, Texas, Biden was asked a question by a 10-year-old girl about how the country is divided at the moment. He responded with a lengthy answer which brushed on the issue of immigration.
He then approached the child and promised her that he will write her a formal letter that addressed his policy on the matter. 76-year-old Biden then leaned to talk to her and shake her hand before saying: "I bet you're as bright as you are good looking."
After he found out that the child is interested in becoming a journalist in the future, he took her over to meet the press and then proceeded to put his hands on her shoulders. The incident that occurred at the town hall was reported by Washington Post reporter Felicia Sonmez and users on Twitter were very quick to criticize the presidential hopeful for his inappropriate actions.
This incident came only weeks after Biden responded to claims about him where he was accused of acting in an inappropriate way towards women, which he promised he would rectify in a video that was posted to his official Twitter account.
