President Joe Biden drew criticism from conservatives on social media over a comment he made to a young teenager in California where he told her “no serious guys until you’re 30.”
“Now a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughters — no serious guys until you’re 30!” Biden said to an unknown young woman at an event in Irvine, California.
“Ok,” the woman said as the president leaned in close. “I’ll keep that in mind.”
Video of the exchange was posted on Twitter by reporter Kalen D’Almeida, who claimed members of the Secret Service tried to prevent him from filming. The video has been viewed almost 3 million times and earned pushback from social media users.
Conservatives on social media reacted to the video by referring to the president as “creepy.”
“Creepy Joe is at it again,” political commentator Benny Johnson tweeted.
“Can you imagine the media’s response if Trump grabbed a teenage girl and whispered ‘no serious guys until you’re 30’????” Conservative commentator Ian Haworth posted. “Biden does it again…and again…and again, and the media laugh and say ‘that’s our Joe!’”
