Joe Biden: “Not once – ever – did I believe I acted inappropriately”

Flores and Biden on the campaign trail

Such a non-apology. Demorats have mastered those.

From Daily Mail: Former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday defended his years of what he called ‘expressions of affection’ and claimed he ‘not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately.’

‘In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully,’ he said in a statement.

‘But it was never my intention. I may not recall these moments the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention. And I will.’

Biden, who is expected to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in the next month, is known for giving hugs, kisses, and demonstrating affection in public. It was often the subject of jokes about his love of women while others labeled him ‘Creepy Uncle Joe.’

He’s now fighting that longtime reputation in the wake of allegations from a Nevada politician that he gave her an unwanted kiss to the back of her head.

Biden vowed to remain a strong advocate for women. ‘I will also remain the strongest advocate I can be for the rights of women. I will fight to build on the work I’ve done in my career to end violence against women and ensure women are treated with the equality they deserve,’ he said.

‘I will continue to surround myself with trusted women advisers who challenge me to see different perspectives than my own. I will continue to speak out on these vitally-important issues where there is much more progress to be made and crucial fights that must be waged and won,’ he noted.

The talk of Biden presidential bid has been overshadowed by the accusation from Lucy Flores, a former Nevada politician who claims he grabbed her shoulders and kissed her head as he helped campaign for her in 2014.

Flores, the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor in Nevada the year in question, recalled in a bombshell essay on Friday that Biden crossed the line with her physically as they worked together, leaving her feeling ‘gross and confused’.

‘I’m glad that he’s willing to listen,’ Flores told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday morning of Biden’s response to her accusation.

If he is saying he never believed that was inappropriate frankly I believe that’s a little bit of a disconnection. And a sense of not being aware,’ she noted. ‘I just can’t imagine that there was never a situation where someone said to him, Mr. Vice president, you probably should stop doing that. You should probably stop touching women in that way, you should probably keep your hands to yourself. I want him to change his behavior and I want him to acknowledge this was wrong,’ she said.

They certainly have mastered non-apologies, the language of Weaselese (apologies to all the weasels). He mentioned his affection for women but neglected to add “especially underage women”. There was that video clip with an 11 Yo where he was caught on mic saying, “you have no idea how horny I am.” Nice. Supposedly “debunked”, he really said “honored”. Sure. Whatever. Didn’t he have a brain tumor? Isn’t he getting kind of old? His Irish Cat’lic, came-up-the-hard-way schtick is getting worn out even with the demons. Joe, just shut up and go the hell away

The typical dirty old man pedophile syndrome he can’t seem to keep his hands off anyone. He is the one who has concluded with the Russians look at his hands. Russian hands and roaming fingers if he touched me I would have to go take a bath in bleach. This man is sick and I guess if your a demorat you get away with this but, if your a Republican, your crucified for it and put out to pasture.

Slime, filthy, SOB, MF and all those qualifying “adjetives” fitting this dirty old man. What is more indignant that some come in his defense, “Stephanie Carter, the wife of former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, sought Sunday to “reclaim” a “misleadingly extracted” yet oft-mocked picture of her and Joe Biden that has resurfaced”. Joe, knock it off, move over, you don’t meet the qualifications to be in a debate and least trying for the highest seat in the nation.

On further reflection it’s certainly not outside the realm of possibility that the demons could nominate the scumbag’s scumbag. It’s early but they are already scraping the bottom of the barrel and they have to know Trump would wipe the floor with any of the losers that are now throwing their hats in the ring. And old Joe is seasoned. Maybe he could have Mr O’Rourke as second fiddle, or vice versa. The all Irish ticket with an Ay! Caramba! twist. Creepy Joe and the Betaman. Nice ring to it

Sexual predators always claim they did nothing wrong and many of their damaged victims will back up the claim because they think that they are at fault.

Hey Joey aren’t you the one that said you would “beat the hell out of” President Donald Trump if you were in high school over his crude comments about women. …? ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,” the joke’s on you Joey, the final blow was given by none other than a woman, Lucy Flores, kissy, kissy, kissy, thump, thump! One, two, three, OUT,!!

My first thought is, who said it was up to him whether it was offensive? I used to be a little “touchy” with people I knew well. I don’t even do that anymore, which is a shame. Even before my “enlightenment” I wouldn’t consider embracing strangers or smelling their hair or whispering in their ears. That’s just too creepy. That is invading someone else’s space, uninvited. I knew this lady and her husband for several years. Once, when talking to her about something, I lightly touched her shoulder because I was laughing at something she said. She took off like… Read more »

A shame, yes, but ultimately it tracks back to Bolshevik divide-and-conquer. These days if you have exposure, meaning no power, and you so much as say “you look nice” to a woman in the workplace you risk being Me Too’d. Biden has gotten away with groping little girls for a long time because he’s powerful. He should have been busted for this years ago. There I go, should. Doesn’t help

So true. I once had a “collateral duty” of “Sexual Harassment Coordinator” where I worked. There were posters all over the place with my phone number and directing them to my office.

It doesn’t help that the legal standard for “harassment” is based on how someone “feels”. That in itself is ridiculous. That it hasn’t been challenged says a lot.

It is readily apparent to me that Joe Biden is, in all candor, insane. I cannot fathom what his problem or urge is. I mean, on the one hand, it appears to have a sexual component, but on the other hand, it does not. It’s like the man is nervous in public, and this is the way he deals with that. But that’s still no excuse.

But then again—99 56/100ths% of all politicians don’t belong in politics. Sigh…

Well Steven, seen another way, would you do that? I don’t think you would. Neither would I. Would you think that someone who was once Vice President of the United States would have common sense?

No I wouldn’t behave like that. Could it be that the man is on medication? This has been going on for years. It’s about time he got called on it.

Then we would have to think that all the pedophile priests were “on medication” as well. /Sarc

Only if we define alcohol as “medication”. And let us not forget the under-the-radar pedophilia of the Talmudists. That, of course, is a mere “cultural particularity”.

Yes, this was the article I was thinking of. I knew you wouldn’t have overlooked this but your post was before my time at FOTM. I couldn’t help but notice the other headline “Morrocan Muslims got rabies from raping donkey.” What have I been missing? 🙂

Of course not! If you are of the ilk that thinks “nothing is/was wrong…” then…there is NOTHING TO FIX.
