Joe Biden Nibbles Wife’s Finger During Bizarre Campaign Speech - WATCH
Former Vice President interrupted speech with awkward gesture
Former Vice President and White House hopeful Joe Biden interrupted his wife’s speech during a campaign event on Saturday by biting her finger.
Jill Biden was speaking to the crowd in Council Bluffs, Iowa when she motioned her hands towards her husband before he awkwardly leaned forward and bit her.
But Jill Biden seemed somewhat amused by her husband's move, laughing as she continued her speech.
The event launched the kick-off of Biden's “No Malarkey” tour; an eight-day barnstorm across the state of Iowa ahead of the upcoming caucuses.
Earlier this year, Jill Biden urged voters to consider the "electability" of her husband ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries in September, where he made a series of blunders.
Jill said that vectors might have to "swallow a little bit" with Joe so they can beat President Donald Trump:
"I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race," Dr. Biden said.
In April, Jill also admitted that her husband's constant touching made her feel "strange and uncomfortable" when they first started dating.
Excerpts from her "deeply personal" memoirs were obtained by the Daily Mail, in which Dr. Jill Biden says she found the former vice president's touchy-feely style, with constant kissing and "brushing" of her hair, "draining."

Biden is currently swamped in controversy after a member of Ukraine's Parliament alleged that his son, Hunter Biden, and his partners enriched themselves through Burisma Holdings using money that was stolen from Ukrainian citizens.
Last week, Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, accused Biden of bribing the then Ukrainian leader so he would "fire a prosecutor who is investigating the vice president's son."
In October, a top Ukraine government official claimed he had proof Biden was paid $900,000 to lobby for his son, Hunter Biden's Ukranian company, Burisma.
Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the allegation that Biden received the vast sums of money from Burisma for lobbying activities, according to Ukrainian news agency Interfax.
