President Joe Biden was caught giving dating advice to yet another young girl Friday while at a speaking event in Irvine, California.

“Now, a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughters — no serious guys until you’re 30!” President Biden told the young girl as he gripped her shoulders in a video which has since gone viral on Twitter. (RELATED: Second Woman Accuses Biden Of Inappropriate Touching)

The incident was captured by reporter Kalen D’Almeida, who was allegedly asked by Secret Service members to stop filming.

This is not the first time Biden has offered unsolicited advice to young women.  NPR host Peter Sagal tweeted in 2019 that after meeting then former Vice President Biden in 2009, he called his daughters so that Biden could speak to them. According to Sagal, Biden said, “Hey, girls … this is Joe Biden. Listen, no dating till you’re 30, okay?”

This same advice was reportedly given to late Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch’s granddaughter, who was also told “You know what I tell my grandkids? Take care of your grandfather. That’s your most important job,” according to The Week.

In another clip from 2015, Biden was overheard telling Hatch’s granddaughter during a swearing in ceremony that he hoped she had “a big fence around her house.”

Prior to his 2020 Presidential bid, Biden responded to reports from multiple women who deemed his interactions with them as inappropriate.

In a video released on Twitter, he stated, “I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘You can do this.’ Whether they are women, men, young, old, it’s the way I’ve always been. It’s the way I show I care about them, that I listen. Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted. And the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset. And I get it. I get it. I hear what they’re saying, I understand it. And I’ll be much more mindful. That’s my responsibility and I’ll meet it.”
