Awkward… You know when you go in for a friendly kiss and it lands right on the lips? Well, First Lady Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff aren’t immune to such a cringefest.

The partners of the two American leaders Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were spruced up to support their other halves at the annual State of the Union address.

It’s an important event that typically happens early each year just before a joint session of the United States Congress.

Dr Jill Biden was dressed up in a standout purple dress as the camera followed her to her reserved seat next to Doug Emhoff, just behind Bono, in the visiting box when the awkward greeting was spotted by an audience of millions!

Well, it’s safe to say more than a few eyebrows were raised by the encounter- even if it was just a brief moment.

Both Dr Jill and Doug quickly re-composed themselves and turned to applaud President Biden and Vice-President Harris as they delivered their speeches.

Everyone was pretty amused by the exchange- one tweet said ‘Sexy start to the State of the Union tonight with Dr. Jill Biden and Kamala’s husband with a heck of a hello kiss.’

Another said ‘I did not have Jill Biden KISSING Kamala Harris husband on the mouth tonight with her eyes closed on my BINGO CARDS’ followed by a string of laughing emojis.

Another viewer wondered if the kiss was scripted- they said ‘Jill Biden kissed Kamala Harris’ husband on the lips The State of the Union is now a reality show’.

After the brief interruption to the otherwise serious and divisive event everyone settled down to listen to the President outline the state of play for the US government.

Even U2 front man Bono was in the crowd as a guest of President Biden to listen earnestly to the plans in place to tackle poverty and preventable diseases.

It’s not the first time Jill Biden has made waves on social media this month.

She recently came in for some further stick and praise in equal measure as she presented a Grammy Award on Sunday night for The Best Song for Social Change, and also the award for Song of the Year.
