‘He Gave Me Permission to Touch Him:’ Biden Hugs Kids During Bizarre Event

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!”

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
