President Joe Biden should not be talking to children. He shouldn’t be talking to or about teenagers, either. He oughtn’t to address or talk about anyone under 21 for the remainder of his presidency.
Yet again, the president is in hot water for an odd comment to a minor. This time, it’s for what he said to a girl in the audience at an event in Pennsylvania.
“How are you, baby? How old are you? How old are you?” he asked a girl in the audience.
“Nine,” she responded.
“You’re almost double figures!” Biden said.
If that sounds strange, consider that it’s not the first time Biden’s used questionable language when talking to young girls. Consider this moment in March of 2021:
Joe Biden looks at a little girl in the audience, the daughter of a veteran, and says "I love those barrettes in your hair. Man I’ll tell you what, look at her she looks like she's 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed." pic.twitter.com/DbH8ihG2Mj

“I love those barrettes in your hair,” Biden told a young girl at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia, according to the New York Post.
The girl’s mother had introduced the president, the Post reported.
“Man, I’ll tell you what. Look at her,” Biden said. “She looks like she’s 19 years old, sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”
And it’s not just his words: Biden has a history of inappropriate behavior with members of the opposite sex, including children. Here’s a representative “hair-sniffing” video of the president:

Social media users noted that there’s something decidedly odd about a man calling a young girl “baby.”
He's talking to an almost 10 year old girl calling her baby?? Weird…

Talking to a child like this? https://t.co/LybV4XsMnv

However, there’s another reason Biden should have wanted to steer clear of this:

As this social media user noted, this clip came on the heels of an acknowledgment that portions of a diary found at a halfway house in Florida belonged to Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden. In the diary, Ashley Biden wrote that, as a young girl, she had “showers w/ my dad (probably not appropriate).”
Regardless of whether or not this statement was true, the question remains:
Why would Joe Biden want to remind us again that he has a problem with boundaries and young women, both physical and verbal? The answer, it seems, is that he just doesn’t get it.
