(LibertySociety.com) – President Joe Biden is well-known for his gaffes. Often throughout his career, he’s made awkward comments. He has flip-flopped on many issues, but his ability to put his foot into his mouth has remained constant, and he proved it yet again.
On Monday, February 8, Biden held a video conference with a group of health care workers in Arizona. During the event, the president spoke to one of the nurses, Brittney Hayes, and seemed to comment on her appearance in a weird way. He told her that she looks “like a freshman” at the university.
BIDEN: "Are you a freshman at the university?"
BIDEN: "I'm teasing… you look like a freshman."
Nurse: "Thank you.”

The Democratic Party is always talking about how much they respect women. Biden’s comment was a direct contradiction to that. Hayes has been an RN for nearly a decade. She worked her way up to the position of nursing supervisor. She was explaining how people are going to get COVID-19 vaccinations, and then, the POTUS undercut her by commenting on her appearance. It wasn’t a compliment; it was disrespectful, and the commander-in-chief should have known better.
