OH MY GOODNESS! This looks seriously awkward and uncomfortable! Pictures from the swearing in ceremony for new Defense Secretary, Ashton Carter, reveal what reportedly went down. Reportedly, Vice President Joe Biden felt the need to whisper into the ear of Carter’s wife AND rub her shoulders. HotMessFolder is beyond creeped out! Why does everyone continue to let Joe Biden get away with this stuff? We’ve filed him away before for these antics. It shows an utter lack of respect of women’s boundaries. So gross!
