Skip to comments.'I hope you have a big fence!': Joe Biden's awkward [creepy] swearing-in ceremony compliment

Vice President Joe Biden is famous for his off-beat humor, but when he swore in the new Congress on Tuesday his jokes took on a remarkably creepier tone.
When introduced to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's teenage granddaughter Emily, Biden commented: 'I hope you have a big fence around the house!'
The comment was made as Biden posed with the 80-year-old Republican senator's large family, on the day he officially became president pro tempore of Congress.
Biden thought the joke about the girl's good looks so funny, he whipped it out again when he met the daughter of freshman Senator Joni Ernst.
Pictures from the event show Biden with his arm around the Republican's daughter Libby, as Senator Ernst placeh her hand on a Bible to be sworn in.
He probably won't be calling Senator Ernst up for favors anytime soon. In addition to the strange comment towards her daughter, Biden also got the senator's name wrong at first - calling Joni by her husband's name, Gail.
Biden's blush-worthy moments didn't end there. Excruciatingly awkward C-SPAN footage shows the moment he leaned in to kiss the red-headed daughter of Senator Christopher Coons of Delaware...and got rejected......

Um.. you know... I hate democrats as much as anyone. And Biden is an idiot.
BUT, this is a non- story.
Biden did nothing wrong.
That poor little girl looks like she just swallowed a lemon. Whole!
What a DIRTY OLD CLASSLESS CREEP he is!
He put her in a horrible position of powerlessness.
You don't have to be a feminist to see the patriarchal droit de seigneur attitude in such a cavalier and brutish action.
I guess you haven’t seen the video of Biden all over Senator Christopher Coons’ daughter.
Biden is disgusting. He didn’t just lean in for a kiss he was nuzzling her face and trying to kiss her.
According to the liberals and the women’s power movement, Biden just committed sexual assault, and if he was in college, they would want him expelled.
I agree. This doesn't rise to the level of "creepy." It's just Biden the Slow doing his typical "speak-first-think later" bit.
Well, I want him expelled now.
“Biden did nothing wrong.”
No Progressive ever does anything wrong.
Long live the revolution! /s/
That his most assuredly is... but he's little more than the dumbassed court jester he was selected to be. Obama is far more foreboding.
If Biden were a student at about 99% of American universities, he'd be up on disciplinary charges and likely expelled for this "non-story". That's the story.
Uh no doubt Sen. Ernst has good judgment, but perhaps she should have mentioned to her daughter that the sweating in at the Capitol was not an after 6:00 party.
No, Monty Python is know for off-beat humor.
Biden's just an idiot.
