Despite four women having accused former Vice President Joe Biden of having touched them inappropriately, Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has no intention of throwing him under the bus like she once did to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
When asked Tuesday on MSNBC about the former VP’s longtime behavior, Gillibrand first outlined her history of fighting for alleged sexual assault/harassment victims and then turned around and made it clear she doesn’t intend to fight for the former VP’s alleged sexual harassment victims.
“This is something I’ve taken very seriously over the last seven or eight years,” she initially said to host Chris Matthews. “I’ve been fighting against sexual assault in the military, sexual assault on college campuses, and acting changing the rules for the House and Senate on harassment.”
Keep in mind one of her alleged victims, Emma Sulkowicz, was a rape hoaxer.
“So I think it’s something, if Vice President Biden decides to run, he’s just gonna have to address directly with the American people, because individuals feel demeaned and that’s not okay.”
That sounded like a cop-out.
Watch the discussion below:
Matthews then tried again to squeeze a real answer out of Gillibrand.
“You know what I’m trying to do here — get an answer on this very tough question. Is he a fit man to be the nominee for the Democratic Party. Is he fit for the office?” he asked.
And again she avoided directly answering the question.
“I think it’s an issue that he’s gonna have to address directly with voters, and the voters will decide,” she replied, making it clear she refuses to throw a single stone at Biden.
If only she’d felt similarly about Kavanaugh, whom she’d rushed to condemn and demonize after highly spurious, 35-year-old allegations of sexual assault — allegations that have since been debunked — were lodged at him last year by a woman who’s since been proven to be a habitual liar and con.
When Matthews then asked the New York senator why she’s treating Biden differently than former Sen. Al Franken, whom she’d rightly thrown under the bus after picture evidence emerged of him touching women inappropriately, she tried to claim there’s a difference between the two.
“Franken obviously had eight credible allegations against him that were corroborated in real time. … Two of them were since he was senator. And the last one happened to a congressional staffer, and so for me and many others we just couldn’t stay silent anymore.”
Here’s the key evidence against Franken:
Leeann Tweeden said, “Al Franken mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”
How can the NYT say “It’s not necessarily fair to him” to have to resign? Do you think they’d say that if it were Trump who did it? NO.

And here now is a video of Biden inappropriately touching women and children:
While none of the individuals seen above have formally complained about the former VP, his touchy-feely behavior toward them aligns perfectly with the allegations by his accusers:
- Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores revealed last week that he sexually harassed her during a 2014 midterms campaign rally.
- Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide to Connecticut congressman Jim Himes, confirmed Monday that during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich, the then-VP grabbed her head and tried to rub noses with her, leading her to think he was trying to kiss her.
- A third woman, Caitlyn Caruso, revealed Monday that Biden had “kept his hand” on her thigh during an event sometime in the past for It’s On Us, a campaign to end sexual assault.
- A fourth woman, D.J. Hill, told The New York Times on Tuesday that during a fundraiser in Minneapolis in 2012 that she attended, Biden “put his hand on her shoulder and then began to run it down her back.”
Matthews then tried one last time to get a straight answer out of Gillibrand.
“Do you call on him to leave the race — not to enter it?” he asked.
You already know how she replied …
“No, I do not, and what I’m saying now is that it’s something he’s going to have to address,” she replied. “The truth is that we, as a country, have to decide whether we value women at all because today’s ‘Equal Pay Day.’ So it’s the day actually in the year when a woman has to work all last year up until today to earn the same as a white man doing the same job. Do we value women?”
Just to be clear, so-called “Equal Pay Day” is a fake holiday.
That being said, it appears that the Democrats only value some women such as attention-seekers like porn star Stormy Daniels and rape hoaxers like Emma Sulkowicz.
As for those women who have the courage to take a stand against powerful Democrat men such as former President Bill Clinton and former Vice President Joe Biden, not to mention the men in their own very swampy offices, it’s an entirely different story, as usual.
