Former Vice President Joe Biden has a history of doing creepy things around young girls and women, and he has even been forced to apologize for his past indiscretions in recent months.
Social norms are changing. 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. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts

However, old habits die hard for the career Washington D.C. politician who wants to be America’s next President. Biden was caught engaging in more creepy behavior while on the campaign trail, shoving his face into the hair of a young girl during a recent photo op in Des Moines, Iowa.

There have been compilations made of Biden engaging in this inappropriate behavior repeatedly throughout the years.
Early into Biden’s presidential campaign, eight women came forward to share their stories of how they had been victimized due to the inappropriate behavior of this serial creep.
“There’s been a lack of understanding about the way that power can turn something that might seem innocuous into something that can make somebody feel uncomfortable,” former Democratic Party staffer Ally Coll said of Biden’s unwanted touching.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” said Amy Lappos, who met Biden at a Greenwich fundraiser in 2009. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”
“I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me,” former Nevada lieutenant governor nominee Lucy Flores said of an unwanted kiss Biden planted on the back of her head in 2013.
Alexandra Tara Reade, a former intern in Biden’s U.S. Senate office in 1993, said that Biden would regularly “put his hand on my shoulder and run his finger up my neck” while she was working in his office. After she refused to serve drinks like a floozy to Biden and his cronies, she left her position feeling used.
Reade said that Biden’s treatment made her feel objectified, like a lamp: “It’s pretty. Set it over there. Then when it’s too bright, you throw it away.”
The Democratic Party swept the testimony of these women under the rug to protect the chances of their front-running candidate. Many in the party fold believe that Biden has the best chance to defeat President Trump in next year’s general election. This hypocrisy has enraged some women’s rights activists, including #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke.
“It’s not that people become more ‘sensitive’ over time as Biden suggested. And it’s not just about personal space or intention – it’s about bodily autonomy, it’s about power and leadership, and it’s about living into who we say we are and who we want to be,” Burke said.
“Yes, Biden has been instrumental in work to support women. No, that doesn’t mean he’s above reproach or can’t course correct – but FIRST – he has to do some personal work and not just ‘being mindful’ but apologizing and using the tons of resources available to him,” she added.
However, it appears that Biden has learned nothing despite the controversy over his inappropriate touching. The dirty old man continues to remain on the prowl, looking for young girls to sniff and touch even as cameras record his inappropriate moves.
