Former Vice President Joe Biden has been a known gaffe-machine for decades, spitting out uncomfortable racial phrases or dropping an all-to-public “F-bomb” in public.
However, his latest gaffe is leaving many quite uncomfortable.
During a MSNBC education forum on Sunday, the Democratic front-runner told teachers to “touch” their students, along with telling educators to tell students “how much you love them,” according to Twitchy.
“. . .you teachers who touch them, figuratively speaking. [Pause] I hope you touch them [Biden simulates grabbing a student] and telling them how much you love them, too.”

Biden was excoriated on Twitter over his latest gaffe, with one saying, “Man he’s awkward.”
“Creepy Joe leads by example,” another said.
“Ohmygawd this man with touching,” said stated.
Last month, an extremely odd clip of Biden surfaced, in which he talked about kids rubbing his “hairy legs” and about how he loves children jumping on his lap.
“And by the way I sit on a stand, I got hot, I got hairy legs that turn, that, that, that, turn blonde in the sun,” the former vice president said. “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.”
