Not long after Democrat Senator Chris Coons endorsed Joe Biden, some Trump supporters brought back a viral video from the past where Biden attempted to kiss his then 13 year old daughter Maggie, making for a very awkward moment.
Kambree Nelson tweeted “If Joe Biden had done this to my daughter I would not be endorsing him. Shame on you, Chris Coons.”

Senator Coons addressed the awkward moment last year and defended Biden.
“All three of my kids have known Joe their whole lives,” Coons told the Washington Post.
He also told the Washington Post his daughter who was 13 at the time “did not think of it as anything.”
Here is Chris Coons’ endorsement from tonight.
