Durbin was among the most vocal in the Kavanaugh hearings, calling for an FBI investigation into the unverified and salacious accusations against the Supreme Court Justice, but apparently the same rules don’t apply to a fellow democrat.
“Quickly on 2020. Joe Biden, there’s an allegation that he was basically too—made some women feel uncomfortable by some ways that he acted around them,” NBC host Chuck Todd said. “Are you concerned that Joe Biden can handle the onslaught of 2020? Do you think he should run?”
“I can tell you that Joe Biden is a friend and a seasoned veteran when it comes to political campaigns. I know nothing about the allegations that I also read this morning, as well. I think all of us should take such allegations seriously and with respect,” Durbin said.
“Yes, I think he’s ready if that’s his decision to move forward in this presidential campaign,” he added.
“This isn’t disqualifying?” Todd asked.
“Certainly one allegation is not disqualifying, but it should be taken seriously,” Durbin responded.
Taken seriously? Come on.
Biden has a history of ‘creepy’ behavior.
He is a touchy-feely pervert.
On Friday, Lucy Flores published an essay accusing the former vice president of making her feel uncomfortable by sniffing her hair and kissing her head without her permission.
“As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?'” Flores wrote.
Biden’s office released a statement on Sunday responding to the allegation.
“In 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 that I did so I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention,” the statement reads.
“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 that they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention, and I will,” it added.
Of course, no one has mentioned the compilation of his former behaviors toward both women and children.
It was documented in the past that he massaged and smelled the hair of Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s wife Stephanie at his swearing-in ceremony to her obvious discomfort.
