Joe Biden appeared to tell a young teenager in California this week to wait until she’s 30 to get into a serious relationship. The unsolicited dating advice from the US president was caught on video by a conservative journalist who shared the exchange on social media. The clip quickly went viral, reaching millions of views and sparking outrage among Americans.
Commenting on the clip, US expert Kinsey Schofield told GB News that Mr Biden made the remarks during a stop at Irvine Valley Community College in California.
She told Mark Dolan that the US leader was supposed to “discuss inflation and lowering the price of prescription drugs, but that’s not what the headlines were about”.
The clip, shared by Turning Point USA reporter Kalen D’Almeida, shows President Biden telling the teenager, “Now this is a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughter – no serious guys until you’re 30! “
He was then asked to repeat what he said by the girls’ family, which he did.
The teenager awkwardly laughs off the remark and replies, “Okay, I’ll keep that in mind.”
The girl looked surprised at the sudden appearance of the American president.
Sir. D’Almeida tweeted afterward: “President Joe Biden grabs a young girl by the shoulder and tells her ‘no serious guys until you’re 30’ as she looks back and looks uncomfortable, intelligence seems to be trying to stop me from filming it after Biden spoke. @ Irvine Valley Community College.”
