VIDEO: Creepy Biden Caught Off Guard as Heckler Brings Up Big Time Skeleton In His Closet
People in positions of power or authority often try to use that to their advantage every single time that they can.
Now, that is one thing when they are trying to get someone to vote their way but when they are using it to take advantage of someone it is an entirely different thing altogether.
The Time’s Up movement just caught up with Joe Biden.
The former vice president has been the target of talk for years about getting handsy with women and girls that come into his orbit, but rarely has an accusation gotten as public as the moment Biden faced this weekend during a book tour stop.
And it’s bringing up all kinds of memories.
According to the Wilmington News Journal, the incident took place Sunday at Wilmington’s Grand Opera House (known locally as The Grand). A man in the audience loudly demanded, “What about the girls you molested on C-SPAN at the Senate swearing in?”
The man wasn’t specific, but with Biden he didn’t have to be. The former vice president – who served as a senator from Delaware for 36 years before becoming Barack Obama’s No. 2 man – is legendary for his wandering hands when it comes to women.
A YouTube video from 2015 breaks it down nicely (and includes the swearing-in the heckler was likely referring to).
In the era of #MeToo and Time’s Up, Biden’s behavior should have gotten a lot more publicity than it has so far, but then, Biden is a Democrat, and even a possible contender for the party’s presidential nomination in 2020.
Like Bill Clinton, he has the guaranteed protection of media partisanship when it comes to scandals and potential scandals.
As a 2015 Twitter post by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro put it:
The questioner in the Sunday case never got an answer. Biden, probably caught off guard by a zinger from what he had to assume was a friendly hometown audience, simply responded, “This is not Trump world,” as the crowd booed the man who heckled their hero.
