One of the weirder aspects, to put it simply, of Biden’s political history is the total creepiness with which he does certain things around kids, including during his public appearances. The touching, sniffing and the inappropriate remarks have led to tons of concern over the years, though, because Joe Biden is a Democrat, his actions have mostly been dismissed as innocent.
I can’t say for sure what is going on in Biden’s head when he tries the things he does. Still, you would think certain lessons would be learned after numerous children have showed nervousness and displeasure with his advances.
Well, perhaps this could do it?

If you see the video, you will see that this little girl is having none of what Biden was trying to do. When he attempts to walk up and touch her at the start, she recoils and turns back. After the president doubles down, trying to touch her face and moving his nose next to her hair, the little girl then gives him her fist, forcing him to back away.
Now, as someone with kids who was recently the age of the girl in the video, I think I have the authority to hand over basic advice for Biden: Stop moving into the personal space of kids. This is not 1975. You can’t just go up to a random kid and touch their face or sniff them. You should not be asking children who are not your grandkids to sit on your lap. It’s not appropriate to snuggle next to children who are not your own or to talk about the legs of a nine-year-old.
Children might be children, but they do still have boundaries you should respect. Would it be ok for Biden to randomly sniff and touch a 20-year-old person in the crowd? Of course not, and it is not suddenly alright because the situation is concerning a child. You would think a world leader, of all people, would know this. That is especially true since he has a history with this. Yet, he just cannot help himself, and there is something very creepy about this.
