This is strange behavior.
A former senator’s explosive allegations concerning President Biden’s conduct towards his wife have sparked renewed discussions about the president’s contentious interactions with women and girls.
Former Senator Scott Brown asserted on the “Burn Barrel Podcast” that he had issued a stern warning to Biden to keep his distance from Brown’s wife during his inauguration ceremony a few years back.
In transcript provided by Fox, Brown explained, “I told him I’d kick the s— out — I told him to stop, so yes.”
The ex-senator, who later served as the Ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa in the Trump administration, initially hesitated to delve into the “old news.” However, when prodded to elaborate, he recounted the incident of confronting Biden “face-to-face.”
“Yes, he didn’t act the way I thought he should, and we called him on it and that’s it,” he replied.
According to Brown, the incident occurred in 2010 when then-Vice President Biden posed for photographs with Brown and his wife, Gail Huff Brown, at the U.S. Capitol. Pictures from that time showed Biden’s arm around Huff Brown’s back, as reported by the New York Post.
Brown’s narrative arose following questions about the public’s perception of the president, particularly in light of controversies involving his previously undisclosed granddaughter.
“This matter involving his granddaughter left an impression. Furthermore, I think people are uncomfortable with the hair-sniffing and other behaviors. Women find those actions unsettling, and he doesn’t come across as a reputable individual. You’re familiar with him,” podcast host Tom Shattuck presented to Brown.
The former senator acknowledged his past familiarity with Biden, mentioning that he had “spent quite a bit of time with him” and had “enjoyed his company” in previous years. However, he expressed that the person he sees on television now is not the same as the person he once knew.
Biden’s interactions with women and young girls have been under scrutiny since eight women came forward in 2020, accusing him of sexual misconduct and inappropriate touching.
In July, Biden raised eyebrows when he appeared to playfully nibble on the shoulder of a surprised young Finnish girl while departing from Helsinki. Video footage captured him greeting embassy staff and their families before boarding Air Force One. In the video, Biden leaned towards the girl, who was being held by a woman who appeared to be her mother, and gently nibbled on her shoulder. The girl appeared startled and subsequently turned away when Biden attempted to give her a peck on the head.
In June, a video clip went viral showing actress Eva Longoria removing the president’s hands from her waist during a White House film screening.
In October, Biden faced criticism on social media for advising a young girl not to engage in serious relationships until she reaches the age of 30.
In June, a video put together by GOP presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis’ team highlighted several uncomfortable instances, accompanied by the declaration, “Keep your hands off our kids.”
