Conservatives on social media were troubled and confused after President Joe Biden’s cryptic remark about a friendship he had with a 12-year-old girl when he was 30.
During a speech to the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers’ union, and other Democrats on Friday, Biden briefly paused on climate change to address a woman in the crowd he appeared to have known for a long time.
Biden said: “And everyone found out there aren’t many total climate deniers left after seeing what happened this year. But guess what, we’re busy.” He then pointed to the crowd and said in a low voice, “You have to say hello to me.”

The crowd laughed and Biden said, “We’re going way back. She was 12 and I was 30, but still. This woman has helped me get a lot done. However.”
The crowd laughed again, although not everyone who heard Biden’s offhand remark found it so endearing.
Conservatives on Twitter found it troubling.
“As dementia progresses, patients lose more of their filter and tend to blurt out the truth. Biden: ‘She was 12, I was 30,'” conservative podcast host Monica Crowley wrote.

“Oh my god,” tweeted Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, special counsel for communications Steve Guest.
New York Post writer Miranda Devine asked, “Is there an exonerating context for this?”
Conservative actor Nick Searcy slammed Biden’s supporters after remarking, tweeting: “Democrats think this is normal. @JoeBiden.”
