On the internet, there are some questions over Jill Biden’s decision to kiss Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband on the lips during the State of the Union speech. Biden is seen approaching Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff, in a viral video of her arriving at the event, and the two then have a passionate kiss on the lips.
The brief kiss between the American first lady and the second gentleman was caught on camera during a live broadcast on several different stations. The topic is currently being discussed on social media as consumers query, “Is this normal?”
People were talking about the video in great numbers on Twitter and TikTok. On the latter platform, others had already altered it into a meme and added the Marvin Gaye song “Let’s Get It On” for the kiss.
Sharing the clip on Twitter, reporter Cabot Phillips wrote, “Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff greet each other with… a kiss on the lips? Is this… normal?”
The video has received over 470,000 views as a result of the comment area of his post, where it was generally agreed that it was “not normal” and jokes were added by other commenters.
“Doug is her work husband,” wrote Ryan Doge, while author and radio host Ken Coleman simply said, “I have questions.”
“I think Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff forgot where they were for a second,” wrote Twitter user @ScottEnlow.
The COVID-19 criteria, which previously required staying a safe distance and using a mask, were relaxed as a result of the incident, as was highlighted in several comments.
“I guess since covid guidelines have changed,” joked WillingandAbel1970 on TikTok, while Winterperson4 stated, “I guess Covid is over.”
Some watchers expected the Republican party to respond strongly. The well-known Twitter user @Angry Staffer wrote, “The GOP is having a collective heart attack because Jill Biden pecked Doug Emhoff on the lips.

The Benny Report writer Alex Lorusso posted a photo of the kiss on Twitter and asked, “Please explain to me why we still have ‘COVID Emergency’ until May when this is our First Lady and ‘Second Gentleman’.”

Many online users made “swinging” jokes, and @GrandOldMemes has already produced a meme out of the photo of Biden and Emhoff sharing a kiss.
They posted an image of the president and first lady and used the West Wing TV show’s emblem to write “The West Swing.” In the comments area, fans responded with single words like “wonderful” and “phenomenal.”
Considering that she also made an appearance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, the First Lady Biden has had a busy week. Political analyst Candace Owens previously blasted her for insisting on being referred to as “Dr.” Jill Biden.
Other viral moments from the State of the Union address were Joe Biden’s “minority leader” slip-up and jokes about Marjorie Taylor Green’s attire.
