Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden forcefully grabbed a young woman’s arm on Thursday after she pressed him about how many genders exist and Biden seemed unable to provide an adequate response.
The incident happened while Biden was campaigning at the “Political Soapbox” at the Iowa State Fair when a girl named Katie, who is a student in the state, approached Biden with questions.
“How many genders are there?” Katie asked.
“There are at least three,” Biden responded.
“What are they?” Katie asked.
Biden becoming visibly angry, responded: “Don’t play games with me, kid.”
In an interview with Turning Point USA, Katie described the incident: “When I asked the question it took a few seconds for the question to register [in Biden’s mind] and then he responded with ‘three.'”
After describing her encounter with Biden when she asked the followup question, Katie noted that Biden reached out and touched in an inappropriate manner.
“I started to walk away and then, it doesn’t stop there, he grabs my arm and pulls me back to make eye contact with him again and yells something about marriage at me,” Katie continued. “So I walked away and I was mad, just very, very mad that someone would actually treat me like that.”
