‘I like babies better than people’: Biden holds fussy baby as WH cleans up latest gaffe

President Joe Biden marked the 13-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, at a White House ceremony Thursday and in responding to a fussy baby in the room said that he liked youngsters “better than people.”

The official White House Twitter account would post a photo of the president holding what appears to be the unruly child afterward.

“It’s OK, it’s all right,” Biden said, as a child began crying during his speech. “In fact, I like babies better than people.”

Here is video footage of the encounter, courtesy of C-SPAN, with Biden seen pressing his nose directly into the face of the child:

It was during the signing of the Affordable Care Act that then-Vice President Joe Biden whispered in President Obama’s ear that this was a “big f–king deal.”

Far from being apologetic, Biden stood by the cheeky hot-mic vulgarity.

“Many of you joined us that day after fighting for decades to make it happen, and I remember three words I used at the time, I thought it was –” a smiling Biden said. “I thought it was a big deal. And I stand by the fact, it was a big deal.”

Another big deal was a gaffe Biden made during an East Room reception to celebrate Women’s History Month about disarming “domestic political advisers” while pushing to “ban assault weapons.”

“But this builds on other steps you’ve taken and we’ve taken, like the most significant gun safety law in 30 years to help keep guns out of the hands of — to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic political advisors,” the president said. “But we still have to ban assault weapons again.”

The official White House transcript of the event showed a strike-through on the phrase domestic political advisors, replaced by “convicted domestic abusers.”

The press office circulated the correction just moments before Biden took the stage at the Obamacare event, according to the New York Post.
