  • Democrat calls out Biden over 'disrespectful' jokes (groping and stuff)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Nevada Democrat who accused Joe Biden of touching her without permission says the former vice president has been "so incredibly disrespectful" by joking about the matter. Lucy Flores leveled her criticism Monday on Fox News as Biden nears an announcement of his 2020 presidential campaign. Flores, a former Nevada state legislator, said she wants to force a discussion of how powerful men treat women, even as she affirms that her recollections of a 2014 encounter with Biden don't involve touching of a sexual or violent nature. "The basis of the behavior that I talked about was...

    Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden on Friday said that he was not sorry for his habit of stroking and kissing women in professional settings. “I’m sorry I didn’t understand more. I’m not sorry for any of my intentions. I’m not sorry for anything I’ve ever done,” he told reporters in Washington. Mr. Biden is poised to enter the 2020 Democratic presidential race as the front-runner, but recent complaints by several women about his handsy behavior over the years has cast doubt over his expected run. **SNIP** Two days earlier, he posted an online video in which he promised to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing new scrutiny over his past comments and actions in Ukraine, including bragging that he pressured the country to fire its top prosecutor, who happened to be leading a corruption investigation of a natural gas company that employed his son Hunter Biden. **SNIP** But Biden's role in the firing of Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in 2016, after Shokin as part of a corruption probe targeted a natural gas firm that hired Biden's son two years earlier, could prove a bigger issue. Last year, during a Council on Foreign Relations event, Biden told the...

    Easily the most hands-on vice president the United States has ever seen, Joe Biden’s creepy old man behavior is finally catching up with him. After decades of snuggling up to, hugging, sniffing, and kissing unsuspecting, helpless women of all ages, the avuncular, gaffe-prone 76-year-old politician has suddenly come under attack for two such examples of unwanted touching that allegedly took place in Nevada in 2014 and in Connecticut in 2009. Lucy Flores, the Democrats’ nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada five years ago, wrote an essay March 29 at something called The Cut detailing how she endured undesired touching by...

    Following an allegation that former Vice President Joe Biden inappropriately touched and kissed a former candidate in Nevada during a 2014 campaign event, Whoopi Goldberg is coming to his defense. During "The View" on Monday, the daytime talk show panel addressed the recent allegations Lucy Flores made against Biden, 76, with Goldberg saying that some would say the potential 2020 Democratic candidate is "overly familiar" with people he interacts with and explaining that he’s just “a hands-on kind of guy." Co-host Meghan McCain then went on to discuss how Flores "does not claim this is a MeToo moment" and the...

    Democratic presidential contender Amy Klobuchar said she had 'no reason' not to believe Joe Biden's accuser while Sen. Bernie Sanders said the incident doesn't disqualify the former vice president from running in 2020. 'I have not read her interview, but I know the vice president addressed it there in that statement and he will continue to address it if he decides to get into this race,' Klobuchar said of Lucy Flores' accusation. 'I have no reason not to believe her,' she noted on ABC's 'This Week.' **SNIP** 'I'm not sure that one incident alone disqualifies anybody, but her point is...

    Representatives for Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams say that rumors the former vice president planned to choose the onetime Georgia gubernatorial candidate as his 2020 running mate are "false" and that there was "no grand plan hatched." Biden spokesman Bill Russo tweeted Friday that the ex-vice president "has an enormous amount of respect for" Abrams, noting Biden endorsed her in the gubernatorial race. "But," Russo tweeted, "these rumors about discussions on a pre-cooked ticket are false, plain and simple." Abrams' spokeswoman Lauren Groh-Wargo responded by saying Abrams "enjoyed meeting" with Biden but "there was no grand plan hatched" and she...

    Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., used his opening remarks at a Thursday debate for South Carolina's 5th Congressional District to make an off-color joke about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Did y’all hear the latest, late-breaking news from the Kavanaugh hearings? Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out [saying[ that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln," he said to some laughs and applause. Norman, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, later defended his remarks on Twitter, saying they were "meant to add a bit of levity to a very serious debate between me and my Democrat opponent and to point...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh said Monday he is willing to talk to Congress to defend himself against startling allegations of attempted sexual assault in high school — and vehemently denied every part of the accusation. The allegations were made by Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who as a high school student in the 1980s knew the judge and says he attempted to force himself on her at a party. The accusation has upended Republicans’ push for quick confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Judiciary Committee was slated to vote on Thursday, but Democrats and one key Republican...

    Ogling, groping, racists, racism, accused-rapists, mean-girl snubs, inappropriate rants, cheap shots delivered to humiliate invited guests as the crowd roars its approval… No, this was not a sorority hazing or a prison riot or the last gasp of Ancient Rome; it was how America’s establishment behaved at the funerals for Aretha Franklin and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Here we are in an America with a roaring economy, manufacturing jobs are coming back (without a magic wand), the War on Terror feels like ancient history, we’re not launching stupid wars, Putin’s adventurism’s been halted, and North Korea has gone from launching...

    [Snip] Singer Ariana Grande took the stage to sing "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," a funeral fit for a queen also served as a reminder that there isn't a single place in this country where a woman can feel safe from sexual assault and harassment. Following Grande's performance, Pastor Charles H. Ellis III wrapped his right arm around Grande, pulled her close to him and touched her breast. He did this on stage, in a church, during a funeral -- in front of thousands of attendees. Visibly uncomfortable and tense, Grande forced her way through awkward laughs...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau admitted Thursday he previously apologized to a reporter who alleged Trudeau groped her at a festival in 2000 -- but the Liberal Party leader continued to insist he didn’t act inappropriately. Trudeau expanded on comments he made Sunday, when he told reporters he didn’t “remember any negative interactions” on the day in which he's accused of groping a Creston Daily Advance journalist. “I’ve been reflecting very carefully on what I remember from that incident almost 20 years ago,” he said. “I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way. But I respect the...

    President Trump's self-satisfied little nemesis from Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, looks as though he's getting his turn in the barrel of Harvey Weinstein. The 46-year-old left-wing prime minister and advocate of political correctness has been accused of excessive randiness, groping a female reporter like some pervert on the subway back when he was 28, and the reporter says he got away with it. According to Fox News: Allegations against Trudeau re-surfaced last week when a Calgary law professor posted a picture of an article claiming the then-teacher engaged in inappropriately "handling" a reporter. The story didn't have a byline....

    Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he does not support investigating accusations against President Trump for sexual assault because the voters have already cast their ballots. “Trump’s problems were vetted during the campaign,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said on CNN. “The American people elected President Trump.” The senator said that if a new accusation were made during Mr. Trump’s presidency, then Congress should investigate that claim, but the senator said the voters have made their judgment with these allegations out in the public. Four women have come forward in recent days to retell their stories of sexual misconduct regarding Mr....

    Women who have publicly accused President Trump of sexual misconduct will call for Congress to investigate the allegations at a press conference on Monday. The women will unite for the first time to demand the probe and share details of their allegations against Trump, according to a press release. The conference is being hosted by Brave New Films, a documentary group that released a film about the allegations against Trump in November. More than a dozen women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump during his presidential campaign. Trump has denied the reports and the White House has said its...

    In October, the Los Angeles Times reported that 140 claims of sexual harassment and assault have popped up against California lawmakers including “six of 26 women in the Legislature, two retired lawmakers, a Board of Equalization member and officials from the state Democratic and Republican parties.” The violations include “nonconsensual touching, inappropriate comments, and sexual innuendo.” Now, according to the Associated Press, even more allegations have been tossed onto the already massive pile, bringing the number up to 150.

    He said it. “Grab ’em by the pussy.” Of course he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator. Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real. We now know better. Recently I sat down and read an article dating from October of 2016; it was published days after my departure from...

    While everyone's talking about special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into the Trump campaign's communication with the Russian government, the president's lawyers are preparing for an altogether different case. On Tuesday, in a New York state Supreme Court hearing, they're expected to try to have a defamation case against the president dismissed. If they fail, the president could be forced to testify on allegations that he sexually harassed more than a dozen women. The suit was filed by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," who claimed last year that Trump "very aggressively" kissed her, groped her breasts,...

    A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family. “He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said. According to the source, a Secret Service agent...
