That time Joe Biden stole a baby's pacifier and put it in his mouth

SHARE That time Joe Biden stole a baby's pacifier and put it in his mouth

It’s been throughly documented that Vice President Joe Biden likes to get up close and personal with people of all ages.

And on Wednesday, while attending an event where former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was being knighted at the British ambassador’s residence in Washington, Biden took a special liking to Bloomberg’s grandson, Jasper Michael Brown Quintana.

They are seen sharing a moment together. And yes, that’s the boy’s pacifier in Biden’s mouth.

Bloomberg’s daughter, Georgina, posted it to Facebook, and it was first spotted by the Independent Journal Review.

“What’s a boy to do when the Vice President steals your pacifier?” she wrote on the Facebook post.

While Biden has made a career out of invading personal space, this takes it up to a new, somewhat gross level.

A study from Oklahoma State University scientists shows pacifiers are completely filthy things, often covered with germs, mold and bacteria, which can lead to illness.

Here’s hoping the boy has some solid health insurance.
