Joe Biden is in hot water again this week after a moment he had at the White House is gaining a lot of attention on social media.
Biden held an event at the White House on Thursday to sign legislation supporting first responders.
During the signing, Biden was seen chatting with Jake Bomba, the son of a Maryland police officer who took his own life in 2019.
Biden thanked the first-grader for attending the event and offered him a tour of the White House.
“Meet me after this and I can show you around the White House,” Biden whispered while touching the boy’s arm and face.
“Do you want to see it?” he asked.

This has been a rough week for Biden.
Most Americans do not want Joe Biden to run for re-election.
According to a Hill-HarrisX poll, most Americans want Biden to step aside for another candidate to be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2024.
The poll found that a whopping 61% of voters prefer that Biden not seek a second term in office.
Just 24% of respondents supported a reelection bid, and another 15% said they were unsure if he should run again.
In results that broke along party lines, 87% of Republicans said he should not run again, compared with 37% of Democrats.
More importantly, 59% of Independents also said Biden should only serve one term.
According to the poll, 46% of voters believe Biden has accomplished less than they expected in his first 10 months in office, compared with 23% who say he has done more than they expected, and 31% who said he has done what they expected him to do in office.
According to the publication, the poll was conducted online with 921 registered voters Nov. 9-10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
That dropped to 47.2% approving his job on Aug. 30, compared with 47.5% disapproving.
The declining approval continued through August, September, October, and November, to 51.7% disapproving as of today, compared with 42.8% approving his performance.
Rumors are flying that Biden’s administration is looking into the idea of replacing Kamala Harris as vice president.
White House insiders are painting a picture of total chaos and discontent between Biden and Harris, according to CNN.
“Kamala Harris is a leader but is not being put in positions to lead,” a top Democratic donor said. “[Biden] should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party.”
The CNN report also claims there’s a rumor that Biden has considered booting Harris from the vice presidency altogether and nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy.
“That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” CNN reported.
CNN’s report claims Biden allies in the administration have avoided dealing with Harris because they see “entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus” from her.
“She’s perceived to be in such a weak position that top Democrats in and outside of Washington have begun to speculate privately, asking each other why the White House has allowed her to become so hobbled in the public consciousness, at least as they see it,” the report said. “Republicans and right-wing media turned Harris into a political target from the moment she was picked for the ticket. And implicit racism and sexism have been constant.”
The MSM is finally catching up on the White House Shade War!

The LA Times has been tracking national opinion polls to help gauge how voters view Harris.
As of this week, 42% of registered voters had a favorable opinion of Harris and 51% had an unfavorable opinion.
Over the summer, a new survey reveals that several Democrat strategists are alarmed at Harris’ sinking poll numbers and are questioning whether she would actually harm the party in the 2022 midterm elections.
With Harris being so unpopular, strategists worry that she won’t be able to help Democrats on the campaign trail next November.
Harris has become the most unpopular vice president six months into an administration since at least the 1970s.
