In a total cringe move, Biden played "Despacito" on his phone at a Hispanic campaign event. Wait till you read these lyrics!

Biden's gaffe-ridden campaign is a gift that proves God loves us and wants us to be happy. Yesterday was no exception when Biden spoke at a Hispanic heritage event for his campaign.

As he walked up to the lectern he played the 2017 Spanish hit song "Despacito" on his cell phone.

Watch the awkward video below:

"All right!" Biden exclaimed while bopping back and forth senior-citizen-style to the song. "I'll tell you what, if I had the talent of any one of these people, I'd be — I'd be elected president by acclamation."

But wait — it gets better. The cherry on top of this beautiful Biden gaffe sundae comes when you read the lyrics to "Despacito."

Here is the beginning of the chorus, translated into English:


I want to breathe your neck slowly

Let me tell you things in your ears

So that you remember when you're not with me


I won't give the rest, but you get the idea.

Anyway, here's are a few famous instances of Biden doing, well, exactly that. There's a reason they call him Sniffy and Creepy Joe.

Also worth noting the facial expression of the deaf interpreter on the screen the moment she realizes she has to translate "Despacito" lyrics into sign language.

Now, we have to be fair here. Biden had just been introduced by the artist who performed that song, Louis Fonsi, which gives a little context. Doesn't make this bizarre Biden clip any less delicious.
