Creepy Uncle Joe just doesn’t seem to learn, does he? The former vice president is being blasted by an Iowa teacher after he can be seen grabbing, and holding, her hands during a conversation about his candidacy earlier this week.
In the video below, you can hear Biden talking to a special needs educator about how he plans to work on collective bargaining rights for teachers, at a Labor Day picnic. During the talk he grabs hands, more than once, and clutches them close to his chest. Obviously he is pining for her vote, but after his handsiness, I’m not so sure he has it.
While she did not make her discomfort known at the time, she is now speaking out. She said that she was very put off by how touchy he was.
“I think that he means well but, you know, he grabbed my hands right away and that was really uncomfortable,” she said. “He was very close and, in my mind, I’m like, this is part of our problem: Not recognizing that you need to ask first, or can I shake your hand? Not just grab your hands and hang onto them.”
The teacher added, “That bothers me.”
This is not the first time that Biden’s demeanor on the campaign trail has made women uncomfortable. Earlier this year, the former vice president was accused of inappropriate touching by Lucy Flores, the Democrat’s unsuccessful 2014 nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada. In a widely circulated op-ed, Flores alleged Biden inappropriately touched and kissed her during a campaign event. Following the revelations, several more women came forward to accuse Biden of unwanted touching.
Flores has said those jokes prove the 76-year-old Biden has “not reflected” on how his behavior made women feel.

He does not take it seriously. That alone could cost him any chance he may have of winning the Democratic primary.
