Politico: Biden was chatting up customers in the Cruisers Diner in southern Ohio Sunday when he met a group of motorcycle riders in black leather vests and bandanas.
A female group member was watching, and Biden waved her over, telling her, “I know who runs the show.”
The woman had no place to sit, so Biden pulled a chair in front of himself and pulled her nearly into his lap. He put his hands on her shoulders and leaned in for a conversation as photographers snapped away.
Biden was on his way to a speech in nearby Milford.
Excerpted from The Hill: The Associated Press snapped the shot at Cruisers Diner in Seaman, Ohio on Sunday.
A White House pool report says the bikers may be part of a group called the “Shaddowmen.” No details were available on their real names or what discussion led to the lap incident.
Some observers were quick to joke that Biden is starting to resemble the working-class parody Biden seen in The Onion.
Earlier in the diner visit, Biden made banter with biker Jeff Cook.
“Can I borrow one of your bikes? They don’t let me ride anymore.”
“Probably not,” Cook said.
