Democrats are in big trouble when it comes to their presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden. Besides getting named recently as one of the people who requested the unmasking of Flynn and the pending sexual assault allegations, he’s just plain unfit and creepy. The way he’s reacting and responding to reporters is also quite unsettling.
On ABC News “This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos, Biden was asked about the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations. His answer made no sense.
“Well, that’s their right. Look here, look, I think women should be believed. They should have an opportunity to have their case and state it just forthrightly, what their case is. Then it’s the responsibility of responsible journalists like you and everyone else to go out and investigate those. The end of the day, the truth is the truth. That’s what should prevail. And the truth is this never happened. This never happened, I assure you. That’s the truth.” Biden said.
Seems to me that his answer practically said ‘I think women should be believed, but at the end of the day you should believe me’ or something along those lines.
His comments have not only been a big problem to folks on the right but also for a lot of younger folks on the left who are not as easily convinced to vote for this creepy and confused dude. Interestingly enough, people are finally starting to veer away from the softball questions and start asking him the real stuff. Snapchat’s Peter Hamby went in with a pretty good question for Biden: What do you do, Joe, about this perception of you as an old, confused creepy dude because it’s not playing well?
This question was based on a number of studies. One of which was conducted by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Police regarding the most popular slogans about him. The top three results were “Dementia Joe”, “Sleepy Joe”, and “Creepy Joe.” Not the best for him.
“Basically there’s an entire discourse on the internet right now that’s painting you as creepy and old and out of touch and kinda lame,” Hamby noted. Biden’s answer was lame and unsettling, proving the point exactly. He responded confidently by claiming young people don’t get most of their news from the internet…yikes.
He then, later on in the brutal interview, manages to mispronounce Andrew Yang’s name as Andrew Young. He may be confusing him with the former US Ambassador to the UN and Mayor of Atlanta Andrew Young, but still…Andrew was one of his opposing Democratic candidates for quite some time.
Biden has been consistently out of touch and lame with his young voters, and telling the Snapchat interviewer that young people don’t get most of their news off the internet…well he doesn’t seem to know his voters at all then.
