Biden’s nibbles on young girl just his latest weird interaction with other people’s kids
Joe Biden has been criticized for his interactions with other people’s children, after he was caught on camera appearing to nibble the ear of a young girl during a campaign event in New York last week.
Biden’s campaign was quick to downplay the incident, saying that it was just an attempt to make the girl laugh. The interaction was deemed “odd” by the media, however, as Biden has been seen in the past having inappropriate conversations with children.
While no one is accusing Biden of any sort of malicious or sinister action, his seemingly inappropriate interactions with other people’s children has caused some to question whether he has the right judgement when it comes to interacting with minors.
It is undoubtedly an uncomfortable subject for the Biden campaign, and it raises the question of whether Biden’s idiosyncratic way of interacting with kids is acceptable in a presidential candidate. It is important that in the age of the Me Too movement, any allegations of inappropriate behavior, even if unintentional, need to be taken seriously.
