AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The photo shows Biden giving his 19-year-old granddaughter, Finnegan, a kiss during a campaign stop in Iowa in February.
A recent social media post portrayed a photo of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden kissing his adult granddaughter, Finnegan, on the lips during a campaign rally in Iowa as kissing a 15-year-old girl. According to the Associated Press, the claims are false.
The 1,400-shared Facebook post erroneously claims the image shows Biden abusing a youngster and concerns his eligibility as a Christian candidate.
Facts tell a different story. Biden said at the campaign event that young girls may feel embarrassed by their fathers, but grandfathers rarely do. He stressed that grandchildren love and like their grandfathers.
Video of the event adds context. Biden kissed his adult granddaughter on the lips after his statement and said, “I want you to meet Finnegan.”
