President Joe Biden told the child daughter of a veteran that he loved the barrettes in her hair and that she “looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed” during a speech in Virginia on Friday, maintaining eye contact with the girl throughout the stream of compliments.
“And uh, you know uh, I’m honored to be joined today by Governor Northam, and by two great representatives of the commonwealth, Congressman Luria and Congressman Scott,” Biden said. “And I want to thank uh, thank you for all that you do to represent these service veterans because they’re devoted to you. Their family members, caregivers, survivors, all call Virginia home.”
“I’m especially honored to share the stage with Britney, and Jared [unintelligible] Nathan and Margaret Catherine,” Biden said, turning to stare at a girl off-camera. “I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I’ll tell you what, look at her she looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.” Biden then trailed off into a chuckle.
