Former Vice President Joe Biden — who casually dismissed his history of groping women without their consent — said in 2018 that there is “no justification” for a man to touch a woman without her consent.
Biden, the Democrat presidential frontrunner, is under fire after at least eight women have accused him of groping, kissing, and touching them inappropriately.
For the record, Biden hasn’t even announced his candidacy yet. Imagine what’s going to happen after he officially enters the race.
It bears noting that Biden’s longtime friend — former president Barack Obama — has yet to defend him against these ugly accusations.
‘It Is Never, Never, Never Justified’
In a damning April 2018 video (see below), Biden condemned groping and pawing at women, saying it’s tantamount to rape.
“Nothing justifies a man laying a hand on a woman without her consent. You need consent. It is never, never, never, never justified.
“If the woman is totally drunk and inebriated, she can’t give consent, it’s rape. It’s rape if you cannot give consent. It is assault. A woman could get up and walk down the street here stark naked, no man has a right to lay a hand on her.
“There is no justification. She can be arrested for indecent exposure, but no man has a right to lay their hand on [her].”
During Kavanaugh Hearings, Joe Said ‘Believe All Women’
In September 2018, Joe suggested that all women who accuse men of sexual harassment, assault, groping, or rape should be believed.
“The woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be abused again by the system,” Biden said about Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of groping her back in 1982.
At the time, Biden even demanded an FBI investigation of the unsubstantiated 36-year-old groping claims against Kavanaugh.
Biden Has Not Apologized for Past Groping
Fast-forward to today, and Joe Biden is shrugging off his well-documented history of pawing at women.
In a Twitter video posted this week, Biden refused to apologize, but instead blamed “changing social norms” for why his behavior was acceptable before.
“Social norms are changing,” Biden said in the video. “I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it.”
However, noticeably missing was an apology for his groping.
President trolled Biden on Twitter with a hilarious spoof of Joe’s non-apology video:
Joe Biden Swam Naked In Front of Female Security Detail
Did we mention that Biden routinely swam naked in front of his female Secret Service agents?
Investigative reporter Ron Kessler wrote in his book First Family Detail:
“Agents say that — whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware — Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude. Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
