CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa Joe Biden left an Iowa teacher unimpressed with his canned response to her question about collective bargaining, but what she resented more was how he abruptly seized her hands and clung onto them.
Jessica Roman, 41, had stopped Biden, 76, as he greeted voters on Monday during the Hawkeye Area Labor Council's Labor Day picnic in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The North Liberty preschool teacher, who works with special needs children, was pressing the former vice president on his plans to help unionized members of her profession under recent changes to Iowa's collective bargaining laws when he reached for her hands.
"I think that he means well but, you know, he grabbed my hands right away and that was really uncomfortable," she told the Washington Examiner. "He was very close and, in my mind, I'm like, this is part of our problem: Not recognizing that you need to ask first, or can I shake your hand? Not just grab your hands and hang onto them. That bothers me."
The interaction was witnessed by the Washington Examiner and captured on video from two different angles.

Full title - 'You need to ask first': Iowa teacher blasts Biden for grabbing her hands when she asked him a question
That’s just Gropin’ Joe being Gropin’ Joe........
She’ll be tweeting a #metoo any moment.
It's a form of passive AGGRESSION, a case of a person with WAY more power --the Secret Service-- using it against a woman with much less power.
He has done this hundreds of times over the course of his career.
Now he's doing it during the Me, Too campaign of terror.
Old Joe grab first ask questions later!
Poor dear. Why don’t these empowered women pipe up to the guy grabbing her hands instead of the guy writing about it that just stood by?
Oh...she’s union...more guys to take care of the poor dear.
Doesn't stop cuz it never costs him anything.
You or me?
We'd be in the poorhouse, or jail --probably both.
TWO Americas, seperate and unequal.
He’ll be a “hands on” leader.
Frankly, I don’t think a hand grab is that big a deal for a politician trying to show warmth. Even if Joe is a boob.
“I Wanna Hold Your Hannnnnd!”
An Elizabeth Warren supporter no doubt.
It’s clearly a control thing.
He had no business grabbing her hand except to shake it and then LET GO!!!!
Absent the SS, Dirty Uncle Joey would have got a beat down by a couple of bikers...
This guy’s a walking fustercluck!
I always crack up when I see that picture and the looks on the faces of the two bikers.
THEY know what he’s up to and they look like they want to take care of it SOOOOO bad.......
Is Jill Biden OK with this? Does she care? Is she complicit and doing nefarious things too?
"Naaaah.....that's not real..."
I conceed that telling yourself that DOES make it easier.
At least he did give her a purple nurple.
Old etiquette for men: never offer your hand to a lady. A lady who wants to shake hands will offer hers, palm facing downward.
