An Iowa teacher complained that presidential candidate Joe Biden grabbed her hands without asking after she asked him a question, and it was all caught on video.

The former vice president was talking to voters at the Hawkeye Area Labor Council's Labor Day picnic in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, when it happened.

"I think that he means well but, you know, he grabbed my hands right away and that was really uncomfortable," Jessica Roman told the Washington Examiner.

Biden has been publicly chastised for his frequent forays into women's personal spaces without warning or invitation. He had promised to be more careful and respect women.

"He was very close and, in my mind, I'm like, this is part of our problem: Not recognizing that you need to ask first, or can I shake your hand?" Roman continued.

"Not just grab your hands and hang onto them," she added. "That bothers me."

The uncomfortable interaction was caught on video:

Roman also said that she was not satisfied with the answer Biden gave to her question, which she said lacked detail.

She was very critical of his entire candidacy.

"It's been too long since he's raised a family, too long since he's lived on a normal paycheck," she explained. "I want somebody that actually gets it, that understands what it is to live on the paychecks that we live on, the housing crisis that we have, all of the ways that those things affect us."
