Creepy Joe is back!

During an event with government school unionists in Houston today, Joe Biden complimented a young girl’s appearance, saying, “I bet you’re as bright as you are good looking,” as he leaned towards her face.


The girl told him she wanted to be a journalist, which caused him to stand upright and respond, “I better be more circumspect in my answer!”

He ended up putting his hands on the 10-year-old girl, despite promises to respect boundaries:

Now his campaign’s efforts to keep him away from voters and the media is beginning to make sense.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend:

And here’s former vice president Joe Biden’s agenda for the holiday weekend, according to his campaign: “Joe Biden has no public events scheduled.”

Those seven words are becoming familiar for the Biden team. Aside from a campaign swing right after announcing his candidacy, Biden has kept his head down while his rivals rush from state to state to state. Even when he has held public events, they have included only a handful of questions from voters or reporters.

The light public schedule reflects the unique position of his campaign, advisers say: With near universal name recognition and high favorability ratings among Democrats, the former vice president does not need to introduce himself to voters like nearly every other candidate. And as the leader in early polls, he can attract media attention without splashy events.

“I have zero worry that any voter will leave a Joe Biden event with doubts about his energy,” staffer Kate Bedingfield told the paper regarding “sleepy” accusations. “They’re going to see it everywhere he goes.”
