President Biden appeared to nibble at the shoulder of a startled little girl during his departure from Helsinki on Thursday.

A video of the incident, which took place as the president greeted embassy staff members and their families before he boarded Air Force One at Helsinki-Vantaan International Airport, shows Biden leaning into a young girl and placing his mouth on her shoulder as he nibbled lightly.

The little girl — who appeared frightened during the experience — later turned her head when Biden, who will turn 81 in November, tried to give her a peck on the head.

Footage from the incident quickly made the rounds on social media, where several users blasted the president for his peculiar conduct.

“This has got to be Biden’s creepiest moment yet with a child,” Caleb Hull, a conservative operative, said of the footage. “All Biden has to do is not do this and he can’t,” he added in a separate tweet.

Republican operative Greg Price joked that Biden is “now confusing babies with ice cream cones.”

Responding to the footage in a tweet, Donald Trump Jr. wrote, “Biden should be in a nursing home, not leading the free world.”
