Joe Biden got the attention of many on the Internet this week when he made a comment to a young girl that many found creepy.
As he was giving a speech at Joint Base Langley-Eustice in Hampton, Virginia on Friday he made a comment about a young girl’s barrettes and how she “looked like a 19 year old,” The Post Millennial reported.
“I’m especially honored to share the stage with Brittany and Jared and Nathan and Margaret Catherine. I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed,” he said.

The little girl the child of Brittany Bean, an honoured guest and wife of a soldier currently deployed in Afghanistan. Bean and her family briefly shared the stage with the Bidens before the president’s speech.
This is not the first time Biden has been accused of exhibiting “creepy” behavior around young girls.
Past videos and photos show Biden sniffing girls hair, and hugging in a way that many identified as creepy.
“That’s because he’s attracted to little girls. Many people called him out on this when he was a candidate, but Democrat supporters didn’t care about him being attracted to little girls. Even if Biden was Satan, they would have still voted for him,” on Twitter user said.

“This is what an actual pervert looks like. The dementia contributed to him saying the quiet part out loud. I’ll take the crude, poor taste, Howard Stern like comment by Trump over this actual perversion all day,” another said.
“Same pedophile Democrats voted for. King Pedo continues to deliver for his party. If you have a little girl or grand-daughter and voted for this scum, you failed that little girl,” another Twitter user said.

That comment capped what was a tough week for Biden as the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals said his race and gender based preferences for pandemic relief in the American Rescue Plan were unconstitutional.
Many businesses suffered during the COVID-19 lockdowns across the nation, having to close their doors to comply with government restrictions, and then having to have less than 100 percent capacity.
It was tough for many of those businesses to survive and after they did they discovered that aid was coming from the government, but it was going to favor businesses owned by minorities.
That is, until Thursday when the Sixth Circuit court of appeals shot that idea out of the sky,
Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty brought the case for Antonio Vitolo, owner of Jake’s Bar and Grill in Harriman, Tennessee.
Vitolo had immediately applied for aid on May 3 but, according to the lawsuit, did not qualify yet because he is a white male, Fox 17 reported.
Small Business Association Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman was named as the defendant for the case that started in the U.S. District Court in East Tennessee.
“Given the limited pot of funds, this puts white male applicants at significant risk that, by the time their applications are processed, the money will be gone,” the lawsuit argued.
Judge Amul Thapar, who penned the majority decision, was joined by Judge Alan Norris in a ruling that read, in part, “This case is about whether the government can allocate limited coronavirus relief funds based on the race and sex of the applicants. We hold that it cannot.”
“Thus, we enjoin the government from using these unconstitutional criteria when processing Antonio Vitolo’s application,” the ruling said.
“Since the government failed to justify its discriminatory policy, the plaintiffs will win on the merits of their constitutional claim,” it said.
The decision said, “As today’s case shows once again, the “way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”
“The Small Business Administration has injected explicit racial and ethnic preferences into the priority process,” the decision said. “Under a regulation that predates the pandemic, the agency presumes certain applicants are socially disadvantaged based solely on their race or ethnicity.
