Recently Zach wrote about Joe Biden: Why Joe Biden won’t be president.
Well…if that wasn’t enough to do him in, this really should put an end to the idea that he should run for president:
The longtime politician’s two jokes during a speech at a conference in Washington could shed some early light on how the likely 2020 Democratic presidential candidate plans to rebuff accusations that he made inappropriate physical contact.
One joke came shortly after Biden invited four children on stage. Biden put his arm around a young boy and told the crowd, “by the way, he gave me permission to touch him.”
It was the second joke Biden made about the accusations during the speech. Earlier, Biden joked that Lonnie Stephenson, IBEW’s international president, gave Biden permission to hug him.
C’mon Joe! So, no, Joe Biden just really doesn’t get it. And I am not the only one appalled at his lack of understanding here.
The jokes earned pushback (sic) from at least one of the women who have accused Biden in recent weeks of inappropriate physical contact.
They show that Biden “hasn’t reflected at all on how his inappropriate and unsolicited touching made women feel uncomfortable,” said Lucy Flores…
I hope the push back continues…hard…from the party…from the financial resources that support the party…from the general public. I just can’t believe this.
