Biden walks up to glass to take ‘scary’ selfies with kids
Social media users have roasted Joe Biden over “scary” selfies with children where the president is seen hiding in the background of selfies of children with his face against a window.
Biden gave the kids sitting in the Lemon Press Juice Shop in Nantucket an up-close and personal look as he approached the store window and smiled for a few photos, a social media post from Nantucket Current shows.
The president, who is in Nantucket with his family for Thanksgiving, was shopping along the Strip for Small Business on Saturday when he stopped to meet his little fans.
“Here’s Jo! Oh my God, hi!” one of the children can be heard screaming as the president walks cautiously down Main Street, sipping his drink through a straw.
Biden stops short upon hearing their excited cries and instantly walks over to the window and waves.
Biden does a semi-squat at the window and tilts his head to remove his sunglasses before slowly raising them to the children, exposing his pearly whites.
Some social media users called the close encounter with the president “scary”.
‘It is not normal. Stop trying to normalize this. If it was another old man, y’all would freak out too,” one Instagram user wrote.
“They used to call it a voyeur in my day!” writes another.
DC Patriot reporter Mindy Robinson said, “It’s like a horror movie, someone saves the kids.”
Others found the interaction cute and heartwarming.
“Love it! All this, a twitter user said. “It’s called leadership. Babies are so excited, cute and happy.
“Awwwww so exciting to see kids excited about the president!” another wrote.
“The president who just stops by to make kids smile is what the real president does. Thank you, President Joe,” said another.
