President Biden’s obvious good deeds were overshadowed by strange comments toward children at a Friendsgiving dinner in Virginia.
The president visited Naval Base Norfolk to serve Thanksgiving dinner to service members and their families. Reuters reported, including families associated with the aircraft carriers Dwight D. Eisenhower and Gerald R. Ford. Both aircraft carriers are stationed in the Mediterranean due to the Israeli-Palestinian war.
Biden’s first unpleasant comment came before the children at the event got to see the new “Wonka” movie, a remake of the classic story “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
“I like children more than people,” Biden said. “I wish I could stay with you and watch ‘Wonka,’ but I won’t get to that,” he added.
Biden used the same line in 2021 during a CNN town hall with Anderson Cooper. After the president made a comment about the host’s child, Cooper responded, “Yeah, he’s nine and a half months old, so I’m very happy.”
“I understand. No, no, everyone knows that I like children better than people,” the president noted.
Joined by first lady Jill Biden, the president served portions of mashed potatoes and sweet potato casserole to hungry guests in the military hangar, telling service members that they were “the backbone, the sinew, the backbone of this operation.”
“Your family members are at the heart of this operation,” Biden added.
Unfortunately, the President made questionable remarks as he approached the table of a family sitting to the left of where he was delivering his remarks.
“I love your ears!” Biden told a little girl wearing a festive headband with animal ears. “I love her. They are really cool! What’s your name?”
“Catherine,” the little girl replied.
“Catherine… what a beautiful name. That’s my mother’s name,” the president noted, before guessing the girl’s age.
“How old are you? 17?” Biden asked the small child.
“No, she’s 6,” someone else replied.
“Six?!” said the president.
The following day, the president turned 81, making him the oldest president in the Oval Office.
Comedian Bill Maher was the first Start with jokes about the president’s age and said his recent birthday was an occasion that was “politically very bad.”
“We have never had a president who is 81 years old. That doesn’t mean he can’t, I’m just saying. I like the guy, but I’m just saying, if Joe Biden was a balcony, I wouldn’t do it.” “I’m going up to him for a smoke,” Maher joked.
