From nonconsensual neck massages to weird, presumably unwanted whispers in the ears of random women, President Joe Biden is an expert when it comes to good ol’ fashioned creepy old man flirting.
According to Fox News, the 78-year-old president was at it again during a recent video call with an Arizona nurse, who Biden tried to move in on during a live-streamed video conference call, telling the poor dear repeatedly that she looks like a “freshman” in an awkward back-and-forth that quickly went viral.
The nurse, Brittney Hayes, explained at the start of the call that she went to school at Arizona State University, which apparently was stuck in Biden’s mind as the two conversed via video conference.
Hayes was asked by Biden toward the end of the conversation how he could further assisted frontline workers. Hayes explained in her response that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other groups were coordinating with her and her colleagues, essentially saying that everything was going as well as it could.
That’s when Biden apparently got a little flirty with the age questions.
“Are you a freshman at the university?” Biden asked, in the most awkward possible way. “No, no, no,” Hayes responded.
Biden went in for the kill shot, saying, “You look like a freshman.” Hayes, at that point, simply thanked the president for his observation.
Just when one would think that it would end, it only got worse. Shortly after Vice President Kamala Harris spoke, Biden circled back, saying to Hayes, “And you’re a — a nurse?”
At that point, Hayes was forced to respond a little more directly, saying, “I am, I’m a nurse. I’m an RN. I’ve been an RN for about nine years now,” she said.
According to the Daily Wire, many on social media called the president’s bizarre questions and comments “sexist,” while adding that women in the medical profession are not strangers to such remarks.
