Quite honestly, I think Joe Biden is merely a Boomer and a political throwback, but the 2020 race is proving to be far more interesting that I expected:
“Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. scrambled on Sunday to contain a quickly growing crisis for his likely presidential bid, putting forward several former female aides and allies to praise his treatment of women after Lucy Flores, a former Nevada legislator, accused Mr. Biden of kissing and touching her.
Mr. Biden also issued a sweeping statement acknowledging that he had shown “expressions of affection” to people during his years on the campaign trail, but said, “not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately.” It was the second damage-control statement to come from his team since Ms. Flores made her allegation on Friday, and it was released minutes before she appeared on CNN and argued that Mr. Biden’s behavior with her at a 2014 campaign event was “disqualifying” for a presidential candidate. …”
Who cares? Why not?
““Not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately,” he said.
Biden’s statement capped a long week in which the not-quite-candidate was rocked by a series of controversies, ending in a Friday essay in The Cut in which Lucy Flores, Nevada’s former Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor, accused him of an “awkward kiss” at a rally in 2014.
“He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head,” Flores wrote. “My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused.” …”
I’m honestly just going to laugh, enjoy the ride and contribute a little chaos. I have a feeling this horse race is going to get pretty ugly before it is all over.
