Another awkward moment was caught on camera when Joe Biden invited a little girl to see the inside of the White House, but she refused.
A crowd of people gathered on the White House lawn this week, including numerous children.
“What’s it like in the White House?” the child asked the president.
“Well, what’s it like in the White House?” he asked her. “Come here. You hang here with me for a minute and I – you don’t wanna go in the White House? Oh, okay. Alright,” said Biden.

Some in the crowd laughed, but the moment was cringeworthy nonetheless.
Many people have accused Biden of acting in a creepy and predatory way around children, although others have pointed out that he acts bizarrely in almost every scenario, not just around kids.
There have been innumerable instances where Biden has been caught on camera whispering into childrens’ ears and touching their hair, although it’s not as though he tries to do it surreptitiously.
The generous explanation is that the 80-year-old is just really affectionate towards children.
However, that hasn’t stopped some from questioning whether or not Biden knows his behavior is inappropriate.
One story that left some people grossed out was when Biden described how he enjoyed children playing with his leg hairs in the swimming pool when he was working as a lifeguard.
“By the way, you know, I sit on the stand and it’d get hot. I got a lot of — I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun,” Biden said. “And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again.”
“I love kids jumping on my lap,” he added.
This can’t be real life…
