President Joe Biden’s latest comment about children and ice cream has sparked criticism, leaving many questioning his choice of words and fit for office. Here’s what happened.
The Anniversary Speech
The incident occurred just before his discussion of the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, diverting attention from policy matters and once again prompting discussions about the president’s mental health.
Daddy Owes You
He addressed children in the audience by saying, “I want to say one thing to your children. I know some really great ice cream places around here and Daddy owes you, so talk to me afterward.”
Getting Inflation Under Control
He then went on to talk about how the Biden administration is doing everything it can to get inflation under control.
Social Media Users Were Puzzled
But, the odd choice of words didn’t go unnoticed.
Social media platforms buzzed with reactions ranging from concern to ridicule.
Biden Is So Creepy
One user commented, “That’s what happens when his handlers let him out of their sight,” while another wrote, “Dude is so creepy.”
The Truth Will Come Out
A third person added, “Pretty soon, he won’t remember to control any of his words and the truth will come out.”
It Is Disgusting
Another social media user added, “Not awkward; it is disgusting!”
The Gaffe List
This incident fits into a larger pattern of President Biden’s gaffe list.

Piers Morgan Speaks
Piers Morgan highlighted the viral moment and questioned the president’s behavior.
He expressed shock at Biden’s behavior, comparing it humorously to a Hannibal Lecter.
“How does he keep doing this? Why does he keep doing this? You think he’s Hannibal Lecter or something? It’s creepy, it’s weird, it’s definitely unpresidential,” Morgan said.
Invading Personal Spaces
“Well, sadly, this isn’t the first time the commander-in-chief has gotten a little creepy and invaded other people’s personal space,” he added.
What Is He Doing
Morgan continued and pointed out that Biden was acting odd.
“What is he doing with that young kid? Literally nibbling her! I hate to even say it because it sounds so weird! He’s the president!” he said
This Is Weird
“The thing is, even if it was his own grandchild, right, you’d still think it was a bit weird. The fact it’s some random person that’s standing there with their kid,” he concluded.
