Hands On Presidency 11-10-20
November 10, 2020
Surely one of the greatest side effects of Covid-19 hysteria from the DNC perspective, was how effectively it sequestered accusations of Biden's impropriety with women. As reported by Laura Bradley in Vanity Fair back in 2019;
"In the 2020 presidential race, Trevor Noah has an answer: “too close to women.” Two women have recently come out with uncomfortable stories about the former vice president’s past behavior: former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores claimed in an essay published Friday that Biden once invaded her personal space ahead of her campaign event, smelling her hair and planting a slow kiss on the back of her head, while former Democratic aide Amy Lappos said Biden once put his hand around her neck and pulled her in to rub noses. All of this left Noah baffled, wondering aloud on Monday’s Daily Show, “What is it with America’s vice presidents?”
“None of them are normal,” Noah continued. “One guy is smelling women’s hair; the other one refuses to be near a woman without a chaperone. Isn’t there a middle ground? There’s no vice middle president? There’s nowhere between ‘Me Too’ and Handmaid’s Tale? No someone in between?”
Setting aside the false equivalency of Biden's weird hair-sniffing and Pence's propriety, there's no way to tell if Joe Biden will be able to overcome his natural impulses if he is elevated to the most powerful position on the planet on Jan. 20, 2021. It is obvious that unlike Mike Pence, Biden will actually require chaperones.
