Former Vice President and likely 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden held a bizarre event Friday during which he joked about his recent scandal of inappropriately touching women.
“He gave me permission to touch him, all right?” Biden said as he hugged one of the many children he invited on stage. “Everyone knows I like kids better than people.”
Biden was speaking to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union.
“I just wanted to let you know I had permission to hug Lonnie,” he said after he took the stage and hugged Lonnie Stephenson, the president of the union.
The audience reportedly laughed at the jokes, despite Biden’s ongoing battle with several women who claim that he made them uncomfortable by touching them inappropriately. So far, five women have come out publicly to complain about Biden’s groping.
During his speech to the union, Biden complained about what he sees as a lack of appreciation for the American worker, taking a page out of President Donald J. Trump’s playbook and complaining about the “elite.”
“We’ve gotten so damn sophisticated, we’ve gotten damn elitist,” he reportedly said. ““I hate the way things have changed the last 15-20 years.”
For eight of those years, Biden was the second-highest elected official in the world – perhaps not the strongest pitch for a 2020 candidacy.
“I see people that have busted their necks their whole lives to earn your pensions, and when you retire you deserve every damn penny you work for, not a penny less,” he said. “I mean it! I mean it! I’m tired of it!”
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
