On Monday, Twitter went into an uproar after a video of Democratic front-runner Joe Biden was uploaded, in which he kissed a college student at a campaign stop.
And it wasn’t a simple peck on the check either — it was, well, a little longer.
Here’s the video:
While the girl seemed excited after the fact, people aren’t so sure it was the best move by Biden — particularly in the #MeToo era that’s hyper-focused on consent. It’s one thing to be kissing babies for photo ops, but it’s another thing entirely to be slow kissing college age girls on the campaign trail.
“Anything for a vote. If [President Trump] did something like that he’d be labeled a sexist and completely inappropriate while [Rep. Adam Schiff] would call for an Congressional investigation,” one individual tweeted.

Another chimed in, saying, “This man is sick. I would have slapped him across the face.”
“He just can’t help himself. Disgusting,” another stated.
This incident comes just days after the former vice president invited an 11-year-old girl to see him after a campaign event.
A little over a month ago, another video clip was released where Biden talked about children rubbing his “hair legs” in the sun, along with how he loves kids sitting in his lap.
“And by the way I sit on a stand, I got hot, I got hairy legs that turn, that, that, that, turn blond in the sun,” Biden said in a Delaware campaign speech. “And the kids used to come up and reach in and pull and rub my legs, and watch the hairs rise up again. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping up on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap.”
