Biden slammed for “troubling and creepy” comment to young girl

US President Joe Biden has been slammed on social media after being caught on film making bizarre remarks to a young girl, said to be around six years old, in a public speech.

“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” he said in remarks that have been dubbed “troubling and creepy” by one expert on child abuse.

Former chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party, Amy Tarkanian, said: “Yesterday, Joe Biden, paused his remarks to point out a young woman in the crowd that he found intriguing. She was about six years old, but Joe said she looked 19 because of how her legs were crossed. This is not normal.”

Professor Anthony Zenkus, a professor at Colombia, was disturbed by the footage and said: “Joe Biden refers to a little girl as “looking like a 19 year old” because of the way she crosses her legs. As an expert in sexual abuse, I’ve trained adults on how to spot unsafe behaviors in other adults and how to keep their children safe. Biden’s words are troubling and creepy”.

Commentator Missy Crane went further, comparing Biden to “a schoolyard lech” and dubbing him an “old perverted creep.”

Biden has a long record of touching and sniffing women and young girls while carrying out official duties, with opponents of his candidacy in 2020 digging out numerous clips of the strange behaviour.

Others, less accusatory about his behaviour towards women, have questioned his mental fitness with one former White House doctor, who served under both Barack Hussein Obama and Donald Trump, warning that a press appearance earlier this year “should concern every American who wants to know that their president is fit for duty and in control.”
