Watch Johnson Freeze as Biden Jokes About Being ‘Thrilled’ to Meet PM’s New Wife

In the UK, Johnson is well known among the tabloid press for his turbulent love life, multiple marriages, and fathering at least six children. President Biden, meanwhile, has raised eyebrows and given some Americans the heebie-jeebies over his penchant for hair-sniffing, kissing, and other awkward behaviour around the opposite sex.

President Joe Biden opened up a can of cringe online after joking with his British counterpart Boris Johnson about what the two men “have in common.”

“I’m thrilled to be here. Thrilled to meet your wife,” Biden said, chatting with Johnson in front of media during his first visit to the UK as president on Thursday. “I told the prime minister we have something in common: we both married way above our stations,” he joked.

“I’m not – I’m not going to – I’m not going to descend from that one,” Johnson nervously replied as Biden laughed. “I’m not going to disagree with the president on that or indeed on anything else, I think highly likely,” he added before turning to the media for questions.
