Joe, instead of seeking permission from a child, maybe you could just stop trying to touch them. Because it’s really creepy.
Former Vice President Joe Biden joked about the continued controversy over his inappropriate touching on Friday, as he explores a run for president in 2020.
“I just wanted to let you know I had permission to hug Lonnie,” Biden said after taking the stage and hugging International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union president Lonnie Stephenson.
Biden was invited to speak the IBEW at their conference in Washington, DC, the first public appearance since several women started accusing the former Vice President of making them uncomfortable with unwanted touching.
In the middle of his speech, Biden invited several children on stage and shook their hands.
“Hey all those kids, you want to come up on the stage, you can come up, it’s ok, c’mon up, c’mon,” he said. “Any kids can come up.” More
The fact that Joe Biden thought it would be a good idea to deflect this issue by being handsy with a little boy and claiming it was consensual show how he totally doesn’t get how creepy, perverted and offensive his actions really are.
Using children to joke about, and attempt to diminish his inappropriate behavior toward children is despicable and grossly disrespectful.
