Matt Damon stepped on a #MeToo rake last year. The Suburbicon star attempted to explore sexual assault allegations following Harvey Weinstein’s downfall. Big mistake. At the time, Sen. Al Franken had become the latest casualty of the #MeToo movement. Several women accused the Liberal Democrat of inappropriate touching. That’s when Damon stepped up to the microphone.
Democrats at ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos were up in arms Sunday about the inappropriate conduct controversy surrounding their favorite, unannounced 2020 candidate, Joe Biden. Veteran journalist Cokie Roberts expressed her frustration that Biden was now being forced to keep his hands to himself, saying that was what was “most appealing about him,” and that having to behave himself would make his life “absolutely miserable.” Woah, calm down Cokie!
After CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King complained on Wednesday about having to cover former Vice President Joe Biden’s questionable behavior toward women, she doubled down on Thursday, mourning the “sad conversation” taking place about the 2020 Democrat’s handsy tendencies. The other hosts joined in, even giving testimonials about Biden’s character.
If you're a sleazy male Democrat, you can always count on Nancy Pelosi to run interference for you and your pervy proclivities. While she has soaked up plaudits as a champion for women (most recently as the VH1 Trailblazer Honors recipient last month for International Women's Day), what she really deserves is Cheerleader of the Year Award from the Democratic Bad Boys Club.
The CBS This Morning crew on Tuesday and Wednesday again expressed irritation about having to cover man accused of doing questionable things to a woman. This time it wasn’t their colleague Charlie Rose, but Democrat Joe Biden. Co-host Gayle King said she had seen a lot of “eye rolls” at the claims of unwanted touching by Biden. She weirdly added that the allegations “make my teeth hurt.”
Tina Brown, the feminist former editor of Newsweek, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, appeared on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle on Tuesday morning to tell Joe Biden his career is over. “Joe Biden comes from the sort of crustacean era of gender relations, let’s face it,” she said.
The Democrat-media complex has suddenly decided that Joe Biden has a creepiness problem. Why now? Why not when he was Vice President for eight years? Does anyone remember the allegedly fierce White House press corps pelting the press secretary with questions, asking when Obama would tell his understudy to stop putting his hands on women – and little girls, too – and putting his face uncomfortably close to theirs?
For days now, former Vice President Joe Biden has been buried underneath accusations of inappropriate physical contact with at least two women and a pile of highly questionable photos of him touching women who appeared to be uncomfortable. But have no fear, Democrats are sprinting to help their colleague and the CBS Evening News is willing to give them a platform.
Tuesday’s New York Times kept track of new allegations of inappropriate behavior with women by potential Democratic candidate Joe Biden with “Second Woman Says Biden Made Her Uncomfortable,” by Sydney Ember and Jonathan Martin. Yet half the story was composed of strenuous denials and unrelated minor gaffes by right-leaning entities, in what seemed a ham-handed attempt to distract from or neutralize Biden’s behavior: "Mr. Biden’s advisers believe that the more the right pushes images of him, real or fake, the more it will help them persuade Democrats that Republicans are trying to derail a potential challenger who performs best in polls against President Trump...."
Ok Miss Milano, which one is it? Do we believe all women? Or do we just use that maxim to go after men we disagree with politically? Alyssa Milano took to Twitter on Monday to post her unconditional support of former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been accused of “inappropriate behavior” by several women, and it seemed strangely out of character for the vocal #metoo maiden.
Others might be grossed out by Joe Biden's unwanted touching. But Mika Brzezinski has made it crystal clear that she wants to continue getting affection from good old Uncle Joe. For the second day running on Morning Joe, Mika came to Biden's defense over accusations of unwanted physical contact with women. Yesterday, Mika suggested that Lucy Flores had misconstrued Biden's actions, and that he only wanted to be "kind."
Over the years NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell has become known for her die-hard loyalty to the Clinton’s. But during Monday’s edition of NBC Nightly News, she showed a similar defensive attitude for former Vice President Joe Biden, who was facing accusations of inappropriate touching from at least two women.
