“You are 17 years old?” Joe Biden’s mistake about a little girl’s age is making netizens uncomfortable

” data-script=”https://static.lefigaro.fr/widget-video/short-ttl/video/index.js” >

The 81-year-old American president caused slight discomfort during an exchange with a 6-year-old little girl, which was widely commented on in the Anglo-Saxon press.

“Scary Joe” is back, headlined some Anglo-Saxon media. This nickname, which can be translated as “Anxious Joe”, is back after a new sequence that made many Internet users uncomfortable on Sunday, November 19. Democratic President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, attended the Thanksgiving Day event at the Norfolk Naval Base in Virginia, along with their military families. Biden addressed the audience, thanking them for their service and noted that his son, Beau Biden, served in the army.

At the end of the speech, the US president spoke to a little girl who appeared to be wearing stuffed cat ears as a headband. “I like your ears, I like them, they’re really cool. What’s your name?” he asked her. The little girl hesitated, lowering her eyes shyly as she answered, “Catherine.” “What a lovely name. It’s my mother’s name. . . . How old are you? Seventeen years? asks the president: A nearby little boy answers for him, announcing that he’s 6. Falsely surprised, Biden continues, “Six years old?”, before turning his attention to the boy, taunting him by asking if he’s himself. even 15, to which the kid declares he has “four.” “Four years? You’re a pretty big boy. Well, I’ll tell you what, be nice to your sister. You’re going to need her one day.”

Online reactions were swift, with some calling Biden a “coward” during the impromptu exchange.

This is not the first time that the president has caused trouble with this type of interaction with young people. Last July, he scared a little girl by pretending to eat her ear and smell it while visiting Finland.
