About

Creepy Joe Biden, also known as Inappropriate Joe Biden and Creepy Uncle Joe, refers to a number of photographs and animated GIFs in which Joe Biden is shown as being overly affectionate to women during press conferences and events at the White House.

Origin

On January 6th, 2015, then Vice President Joe Biden swore in the newly and re-elected members of the U.S. Senate, including Chris Coon, the second-term senator of Delaware from Biden's home state. As part of the custom, each senator's oath of office is usually followed by a group photo opportunity with his/her family and the vice president. As Biden, Coon and his family awkwardly posed for the photo op, the vice president was seen whispering something to Coon's daughter before trying to give her a kiss on the cheek, which she coyly fended off by pulling away. The animated GIFs of the awkward exchange was quickly entered circulation online via Twitter, as well as political news blogs like Mediate[7] and BuzzFeed. [8]

"But all of these post-#MeToo allegations and insinuations really don't comport with probably Joe Biden's conduct over the years. If anybody just types and 'Creepy Uncle Joe' videos you come up with a treasure trove."
