On Friday, Joe Biden made a trip to Allentown, Pennsylvania where he spent a few hours engaging with the local community.
After being out of the public eye for three days, Biden’s visit did not involve giving a speech. Instead, he focused on visiting various local businesses.
During his time in Allentown, Biden visited Nowhere Coffee Company and had conversations with workers at South Mountain Cycle on Main Street in Emmaus.
Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro, Senator Bob Casey, and Allentown Mayor Matt Tuerk were alongside him.
As Joe Biden visited the coffee shop, reporters seized the opportunity to inquire about the US bombing of Houthis in Yemen by shouting questions.
“I’ve already delivered the message to Iran. They know not to do anything,” Biden said as he turned his sights on a young girl.

Biden couldn’t resist the urge, brushing off reporters as he leaned down to whisper something in a young girl’s ear.
“Do you have confidence in Secretary Austin?” a reporter shouted.
“I do,” Biden said undeterred by reporters shouting important questions at him.
“Was it a lapse in judgment for him not to tell you earlier?” the reporter asked in a follow-up question.
“Yes,” Biden said.
Biden showed a lack of interest as he leaned in and made unwelcome advances towards a young girl. Her reaction was immediate, pulling away from him, as Biden whispered something in her ear.
