President Joe Biden has a habit of going viral on social media for various behaviors caught on video, and it happened again this week at an event featuring U.S. military members.
At a military movie screening in Norfolk, Va., on Monday, Biden is seen addressing the small crowd when he notices a young girl sitting nearby.
As Biden began to walk towards her, he said, “I love your ears. I love ’em, they’re really cool.”
After asking her name, Biden then asks, “How old are you, 17?” Her brother, sitting nearby, immediately responds, “She’s 6!”
Biden’s behavior got scorching reviews from social media users.
RNC Research also mocked how Biden, during the same remarks, said to children, “I like kids better than people.”
According to Fox News, Biden addressed service members at the “Friendsgiving” meal event, saying, “We have a lot of obligations as a government. We only have one truly sacred obligation, and that is to prepare those who we send into harm’s way, care for them and their families when they come home, and make sure they’re never forgotten.”
He was also rapped for repeating a debunked claim about receiving an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy but turning it down.
“By the way, I’m all Navy. But I was appointed… I was gonna go play [football] at the Naval Academy until I found out the other guys in the backfield were a guy named Roger Staubach and Joe Bellino,” Biden said at the event, which was held in a hangar.
