Vice President Joe Biden took hands-on politics to a creepy new level Tuesday by snuggling new Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s wife from behind.
In a move straight out of the stalker handbook, Biden appeared to be sniffing Stephanie Carter’s hair at a swearing-in ceremony for her husband in Washington.
Biden, who kept his hands on Mrs. Carter’s shoulders for 10 seconds, looked as if he was whispering sweet nothings into her ear.
Hands folded in front of her, she gazed stiffly in the direction of her husband during the grope.
Critics took to Twitter to poke fun at the nation’s No. 1 “close-talker,” calling him clueless about personal space.
“If Joe Biden did this to my wife, she’d knock him out,” tweeted conservative author Brad Thor, while columnist Ben Shapiro joked, “This video is like Mike Tyson going for Evander Holyfield’s ear.”
