Former Vice President Joe Biden, AKA creepy Uncle Joe, teamed up with Lady Gaga to release a PSA video on Wednesday that encourages people to take action against sexual harassment and assault.
Biden said, “We want to make it real clear, it’s on us – it’s on everyone – to intervene, to stop abuse when they see it and when they hear about it, and to intervene,” he continued, “No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman for any reason other than self-defense, ever. Period.”

The tweet promotes the “It’s On Us” campaign launched in 2014 by Biden and former President Barack Obama. The initiative is aimed at ending sexual assault on college campuses.
“I am a sexual assault survivor, and I know the effects, the aftermath, the trauma – psychological, physical, mental,” Gaga said. “It can be terrifying waking up every day feeling unsafe in your own body.”
“But we’re here to remind you that it’s important to reach out to someone in your life that you can trust, and to know that they will be there to help you; there will be someone to listen. Because you know what? It’s on us.”
The video comes just weeks after reports emerged detailing decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Since then numerous high-profile figures have shared their stories of harassment and assault.
I just find it interesting that Joe Biden would give an announcement on sexual assault, when he’s such a creep towards women and children. The only thing that would have been more ironic is if he did a PSA on pedophilia!
Biden is so infamous for being a creep that there are multiple youtube compilations of his rather “awkward” moments while on camera. These videos sport titles such as “Creepy Joe Biden’s Greatest Hits”. When it comes to having the appropriate credibility to make these accusations I would put Joe Biden in the same category as Harvey Weinstein, right alongside Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon.
