To Catch A Biden: Predator Or Creepy Old Man?
Published : April 5, 2019
The downward spiraling week began with Lucy Flores, the former Nevada lieutenant governor nominee, who alleged that at a 2014 campaign stop, Biden inappropriately touched her and gave her a kiss. In an essay published in the Cut, Flores explained how uncomfortable Biden made her feel.
“I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me,” Flores said.
With his official #MeToo moment upon him, Biden defended his innocence. And immediately the old Blue Dog Democrats came to Biden’s side, while the most socialistic of the party, especially those who would need to beat Biden in the presidential primary, condemned him as another perverted old white guy. There was a clear divide.
Despite his claims of innocence, by mid-week Biden acknowledged that maybe what he has been doing in the public eye—with many photos and videos to prove that indeed he is handsy with many women and young girls—is no longer considered appropriate.
“Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying,” Biden said in a video posted to Twitter. “Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it.”
Some of the more awkward commentary came from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is three years Biden’s senior, and also may have lost touch with common decency in perceptions of behavior. Pelosi believes Biden’s interactions with women does not disqualify him from being president because it is all about intent. But she did give him some solid advice moving forward.
“I do think this about communication in general beyond this: I’m a member of the straight-arm club (sticks out arm),” Pelosi said at a breakfast event with Politico. “You know, I’m a straight-armer. Just pretend you have a cold and I have a cold.”
This is the same Nancy Pelosi who condemned Brett Kavanaugh without absolutely zero evidence provided that he in any way sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford or any woman for that matter. And yet Pelosi says that Biden should run for president and Kavanaugh should not be serving as a justice on the Supreme Court. Add to that examples from actress Alyssa Milano, former advisor to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett, and Mika Brzezinski, co-host of “Morning Joe,” among others.
Of those siding with Creepy Uncle Joe, Brzezinski’s is the most honest and telling of how the Democrats continue to unite for the common goal.
“Democrats and those on the left who want to tweet me today and go nuts and get all woke — you’re eating your young. You’re eating those who can beat [President Donald] Trump. You’re killing the very people who have been pushing women ahead, who have been fighting for equal pay, who have been doing everything they can to respect women and their lives,” Brzezinski said on Tuesday, April 2.
And this is when Brzezinski committed Democratic treason because she told the truth in motive. In the end, all the Democrats care about is beating Donald Trump at every turn. They will continue to let Biden be the creepy old guy because the only standard they keep is the one that means forever and for always Trump is the enemy.
