Biden was talking to some young people and he reached over and grabbed a girl’s face. He continued touching her while others were trying to talk to the president.
However, in this case, most seemed to think the president’s handsy behavior was amusing, rather than disturbing. It is unclear if this bemusement was created by social awkwardness, however, belying that young women may not always know how to react to such male attention, which may or may not be appreciated.
Social media observers, for the most part, believed the behavior was unpresidential and inappropriate.
