Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden refuses to keep his hands to himself.
During a campaign stop in Iowa, a woman said an interaction with the former vice president made her "really uncomfortable" because he would not stop grabbing her hand.
The woman, a teacher who wanted to ask Biden about collective bargaining, said Biden should have asked before holding onto her hand throughout their more than a minute long interaction.
"I think that he means well but, you know, he grabbed my hands right away and that was really uncomfortable," she told the Examiner. "He was very close and, in my mind, I'm like, this is part of our problem: Not recognizing that you need to ask first, or can I shake your hand? Not just grab your hands and hang onto them. That bothers me."
Video of the "really uncomfortable" interaction shows Biden holding her hand several different ways.
Biden can also be seen attempting to pull the women closer to him during the bizarre exchange.
The past few months have been catastrophic for Biden and his 2020 campaign.
While speaking to a small room of voters last week at Dartmouth College, Biden asked the audience to imagine what would have happened if former President Barack Obama had been assassinated in 2008.
Biden's mind-boggling comment came when he was struggling to draw drawing parallels between the activism of the 1960s and college liberal activism of today.
“I think of where we are at the moment. You know, none of you men are old — women are old enough, but a couple of you guys are old enough to remember. I graduated in 1968. Everybody before me was, drop out, go to Haight-Ashbury, don’t trust anybody over 30, everybody not getting involved,” Biden began.
“But then what happened? … I only have two political heroes. I have one hero who was my dad, but I have two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy,” he said.
“My senior semester they were both shot and killed. Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?”
The 2020 election is still a long ways out, but Biden's gaffes are severely harming his 2020 chances.
During a campaign stop earlier this month in Iowa, the former VP told the crowd that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
"We should challenge students in these schools and have advanced placement programs in these schools,” Biden said. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids."
Less than two weeks ago, Biden exploded when a conservative reporter confronted him about the lie he keeps telling about Trump and Charlottesville.
In June, Biden came under fire for praising segregationist Democratic senators and boasted about working with them during his time in the U.S. Senate.
Since he announced his 2020 run back in April, four women have come forward and accused the former vice president of inappropriately touching them and pulling them in close to rub noses.
All of these comments have been made in the last few months.
Imagine how many more gaffes and controversial statements Biden will make over the next year.
