My sincerest apologies to every female Senator and family member who had to endure the creepy, inappropriate, flirtatious behavior of Vice President Joe Biden at the mock swearing in ceremony in Washington, D.C. yesterday. My compliments to the men who kept their cool while the vice president salivated over their wives, mothers and daughters.
During Thursday’s photo session for the swearing in of new senators, Biden was unrelenting in his touchy, feely, kissy, groping of what appears to be every female he came into contact with. Gross. He’s the kind of creeper man women run from at work, family gatherings, or parties.
We all know Biden acts like a buffoon at (most) times, and his “jokes” are never funny, and he didn’t disappoint yesterday while the CSPAN2 cameras were rolling.
The top headline for goofy Biden comments is the one where he tells Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s husband, “Spread your legs: You’re going to be frisked,” when the photographer tells the husband to put his hands down by his side. The husband’s reaction is classic. He doesn’t laugh, he doesn’t look at Biden, and he bolts as soon as the photo is finished leaving Biden to awkwardly retort, “I’m a little too formal, I know.”
In one of the only references to the physique of a man in the room, Biden remarked to the physically fit brother of new South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, “If you ever need any help on your pecs, let me know,” reported Business Insider. Um, eww? No thanks, Joe.
The funniest thing, because I don’t find Biden funny like many in the media do, is the reaction of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s young daughter who started crying, according to Business Insider, when Biden went to pick her up. Right on, kiddo! I’d cry, too!
Back to the vice president’s icky flirting with the women, though. The Weekly Standard wrote that Biden “got a little frisky with the wife of Senator Angus King. Biden’s hand remains on King’s wife, Mary Herman, for at least 20 seconds, moving down her back and to the side of her chest.” The senator, probably uncomfortably used to Biden’s bad behavior, doesn’t show any reaction at all as he raises his hand for the picture in an attempt to keep some decorum while Biden groped his wife.
