The welcome triggers wild speculation.

Washington DC - Was it a kiss on the mouth - or just a misleading recording?

The greeting of First Lady Jill Biden and US Vice President Kamala Harris' husband at President Joe Biden's State of the Union address has provoked wild speculation.

Jill Biden and the lawyer Doug Emhoff greeted each other with a kiss shortly before the so-called State of the Union Address in the US House of Representatives, as reported by tz.de.

In a video of the scene, it looks like the 71-year-old first lady and the 58-year-old second gentleman are kissing on the lips.

However, this is not clearly recognizable.

Footage showed Biden shaking hands as she made her way through the crowded chamber to meet Vice President Kamala Harris' husband.

Did Jill Biden kiss politicians on the mouth?

The conservative tabloid

New York Post

spoke of a "strange kiss" and changed the term "State of the Union" to "Smooch of the Union" - loosely translated "smooch of the Union".

The conservative television network Fox News, known for its very critical reporting on the President, wrote without a question mark that Jill Biden and Emhoff "kissed on the lips".

Numerous Internet users also got into the debate about the kiss.

Jill Biden is reportedly set to play an increasingly prominent role in the White House, serving as a sort of unofficial deputy and adviser to the president on the campaign trail.

The woman who had to apologize last year for comparing Latinos to "breakfast tacos"

has become the most influential person in the West Wing, according to

Bloomberg .

Jill is Joe Biden's closest confidant

The departure of longtime adviser and chief of staff Ron Klain has created a kind of power vacuum in Biden's inner circle, allowing Jill significantly more leverage, Fox reports.

Jill Biden is said to be the President's closest confidant.

She not only influenced his decision to run again, but also political decisions and important personnel decisions, such as the election of the Minister of Education.

She is also said to be vehemently committed to Joe Biden.

By the way, Biden's adversary Vladimir Putin is said to have kept an eye on Pamela Anderson.
