On Sunday, former VP Joe Biden got called out from the crowd at a campaign rally with hardly the nicest of accusations.
The protestor yelled at Joe to stop touching kids. Furthermore, he called the Democratic contender a “pervert.”
You can’t see the guy in the video, but Joe’s response is in plain view.
Biden and the dude went back and forth for a bit.
The man seemed to yell something to the effect of, “I saw you touching 6- and 8-year-olds. It’s on video!”
“That’s okay. This is not a Trump rally,” Biden replied.
Then Joe spoke over his heckling a bit:
“Alright. Nice talking to you.”
“Don’t touch kids, you pervert!” shouted a heckler to Joe Biden at his NH campaign event. https://t.co/9VW10JcO2v

The crowd member tossed out a few more indecipherable lines, one ending with “Never again!”
Then came the humdinger:
“Don’t touch kids, you pervert!”
The guy continued, as an off-camera lady countered, “Get out!”
“Well, ya know, this is a democracy,” Joe said.
No word on exactly what that meant.
I have no comment on the “pervert” part of it, but I’ll say this: The guy sure has a reeeeal strange affectionate way — and it’s even more odd, given that his job involves winninng favor with the public.
Seems like he coulda kept his tender ways out from in front of the cameras.
What’s the deal with all the PDA? I can’t help but wince when I see it:
As I covered here, the erstwhile senator apologized previously for his cozy lovin’ ways:
Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts

What the hot-lips heck?!
And there was this:
If Biden makes it to the White House, I imagine our relationship with North Korea — not to mention other nations led by less-than-amorous officials — taking an immediate — uh — nosedive. Despite Trump’s previous progress with a summit, I don’t see Kim Jong-un putting himself within a hundred yards of getting a smooch on the forehead, an eskimo kiss, a left-to-right nuzzle, and a soft sweep of the armpit from Sweet Caress Joe.
