First Lady Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff made headlines earlier this year when the pair were seen kissing at President Joe Biden's State of the Union address.
However, the pair raised eyebrows again this week after they were spotted leaving a Washington, D.C. gym together.
As Washington Free Beacon Andrew Stiles contributor noted in a piece published this past Wednesday, footage has emerged of Biden and Emhoff coming out of a SoulCycle class in Georgetown.

Stiles jokingly remarked, "According to a Washington Free Beacon analysis, the only reason a straight man would ever go to a SoulCycle class with a female 'friend' would be to stare at her butt. We noticed that Doug is walking behind Dr. Jill. Coincidence?"
Stiles went on to bring up the bizarre kiss that Biden and second Emhoff shared back in February just before the president addressed Congress.

That moment led to expressions of befuddlement on Twitter, with Daily Wire senior editor Cabot Phillips asking if the behavior was "normal."

Fox News contributor Joe Concha spoke up as well, describing the incident as "odd" given how "they both knew the cameras were on them."
Cheek is fine. Or a hug. This is odd considering they both knew the cameras were on them. https://t.co/2k4mcBiXn4

Meanwhile, a White House press release announced that Biden and Emhoff both spoke on Tuesday at an event celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month.
"The history lives on in all of you. And as you share it, the world becomes stronger and more beautiful," the first lady said to attendees in the White House's East Room.
"When you fight for your community and stand against injustice, following the legacy of this freedom and the freedom fighters who came before," she went on to tell listeners.
