Biden Makes Weird Comment About Kids and Gets Heckled in Connecticut

Let’s face it, Joe Biden says a lot of strange things.

Yesterday, during his visit to Connecticut, he was definitely on a roll.

We already reported how he stepped in it big time when he was trying to honor his friend, former Senator Chris Dodd. Biden said you could tell the measure of a person by how they treat waiters and waitresses, seemingly forgetting the infamous alleged incident involving Dodd, Ted Kennedy and the “waitress sandwich.”

But he added to that during his visit to the Capital Child Development Center in Hartford, where he gave one child a hug and talked with some of the others. It also looks like he’s kissing the top of the child’s head or sniffing him. Either one, just no. You can hear activists chanting against him in the background.

Then, during his remarks at the Center, he commented, “When I talked to all your folks out on the playground, I joked that everybody knows I like kids better than people. Fortunately they like me. That’s why maybe I like them.”

Did he really just say kids aren’t people? Do we need to remind him that they are? This is a bit like his comment during the campaign that he prefers “truth over facts.” But within this strange comment is the implication that he doesn’t think people (the adults) like him, so he doesn’t like the adults (as much as the kids). That’s a bit twisted and I think, why he’s always lying and puffing himself up with make-believe stories.

When it comes to Joe, anything he says/does around kids makes some uneasy. Even after he took office, he’s made strange and creepy comments, like the one he made to a little girl, “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.” The girl didn’t look 19, she looked six years old. Thinking a six-year-old looks like she’s 19 is warped. Just no. Don’t touch them and don’t say weird things about them.

Then, while at the Center, we had this instant classic from the NPR reporter covering for the pool: “At one point Biden put a twisty blue tube toy on his head. As this happened you could clearly hear Trump supporters across the street yelling ‘traitor’ and ‘f— Joe Biden.'”

Biden got heckled not only at the Center, but also at the airport and at the University of Connecticut where he spoke about Chris Dodd, with people holding up Trump signs. While on the campus, he was also heckled by students on the left, with signs like “Cuba Sends Doctors Biden Sends Bombs” and “Don’t Come to My School Unless It’s to Cancel My Debt.” Bipartisan heckling, Joe is finally the unifier he claimed to be.

Then, while at the university, in addition to the waitress comment, he spoke about “chansgender individuals.” Is a chansgender person a fan of Jackie Chan? Or, once again, does he not understand what he’s reading on a teleprompter?

He also did that weird shouting thing he does and couldn’t seem to read the word “Nazi” without tripping over it.

Then he played mask theater, touching people, then putting his mask on and off.

But as Fox noted, while he was speaking at the child care center, he did one good thing — he basically admitting he wasn’t likely to get his massive $3.5 trillion bill past Congress without significant cuts. That’s a great thing. It would be better if it didn’t get passed at all since there’s so much that is bad within it.
