Seriously folks, what is going on?
This is the second article today where I thought I was covering an SNL skit….not a real campaign stop from the Democrat frontrunner.
Are you kidding me?
I don’t even know if I can do this justice describing it, you just have to see it for yourself.
As his wife is introducting him on stage, she swings her arm wide and then Biden decides it would be a good idea to….start nibbling on her fingers?
Just watch for yourself:
From the NY Post:
She must have looked good enough to eat.
A jovial Joe Biden nipped his wife Jill’s finger onstage Saturday at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as she introduced him at the first stop of an eight-day, 800-mile road trip through the first-to-caucus state.
As Jill Biden flung an arm wide to make a point, her husband theatrically dodged her hand — then, on a second pass, gave her a playful chomp on her fingertip.
She took the nibble in stride, laughing along with a crowd of about 200 supporters.
Biden’s “No Malarkey” tour, the most intense campaign swing of his 2020 presidential bid, is meant to boost his flagging support in Iowa, where polls show him trailing Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Even worse in Slo Mo:
Even Business Insider had to comment on the "inexplicable" moment:
Former Vice President Joe Biden inexplicably leaned forward and chomped down on his wife's finger as she spoke during a campaign stop in Iowa on Saturday.
Jill Biden had been speaking to a crowd and using her hands to gesture, barely missing her husband's face at several points.
Eventually, while her arm was outstretched, Biden leaned forward and bit down on the tip of his wife's index finger.
In response, Jill Biden laughed it off.
The pair were in Council Bluffs speaking to a crowd of several hundred people, according to the Associated Press. The Biden are launching an eight-day bus tour of Iowa ahead of the February 3 caucuses.
The latest Iowa polls show Biden competing nearly neck and neck with Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and being edged out by South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
And Biden has already been perfectly immortalized in the most popular meme of the year:
We made these for you!
After being sold out for 3 months, they're finally back in stock!
Only while they last.
