    Sen. Chuck Schumer said he accepts Joe Biden’s response to former aide Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in a Senate hallway in 1993. “I have heard Joe Biden’s explanation, and I think it’s sufficient,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, told reporters Tuesday. No Senate Democrat has said they will abandon support of Biden as a result of Reade’s accusation.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will hold “virtual” town hall and rally events, his campaign told reporters late Wednesday, in lieu of holding massive rallies in places like Florida and Illinois. The campaign cited ongoing concerns about coronavirus, particularly in Illinois, which has at least 25 confirmed cases of the illness. Biden had events scheduled in Chicago and Orlando but “his campaign said that after consulting with officials, the former vice president would not hold large-scale events in the states,” according to MSN. He also canceled two fundraisers in Chicago The wave of fear over coronavirus may come as a...

    Joe Biden hit back at a reporter who asked him whether calling an Iowa voter a "damn liar" was comparable to rhetoric from President Trump. "No, no, no, no, no, don't compare me to Donald Trump. Don't do that," the former vice president shot back at an NPR reporter when she made the comparison Saturday. Biden said Trump makes fun of people and lies, adding, "I don't do any of those things." "The fact of the matter is this guy stood up, and he was, in fact, lying. And I just pointed out, 'You're a liar.' It's a fact," he...

    Doc: Dem frontrunner definitely doesn't have brain damage Something is happening behind the scenes within the Democratic Party. Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the prohibitive favorite to win the nomination, even as he continues to commit word gaffes with his mouth. Many still consider Biden to be the most "electable" candidate, but some Democrats, including some of his own aides and supporters, are beginning to express doubts about the 76-year-old's intellectual capacity. It would appear that the Democratic establishment, in its desperation to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, is keen to develop a contingency plan in case...

    At an Iowa Democratic presidential campaign event, former Vice-President Joe Biden electrified an enthusiastic crowd of supporters by assuring them that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. They may not pay attention in school or get good grades, but many in our urban areas have shown entrepreneurial promise by establishing thriving small drug distribution businesses that have overcome the daunting opposition of the police and the law. This, not diplomas on the wall, is the kind of action that makes America great.” Biden also tried to bolster confidence in Democratic electoral success by...

    Joe Biden’s string of gaffes is raising questions among Democrats about his ability to beat President Trump in 2020. Biden made headlines three times in the last week by misspeaking. Over the weekend he mistakenly said he had met as vice president with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. “Those kids in Parkland came to see me when I was vice president,” he told reporters in Iowa. The Parkland school was attacked by a mass shooter and many of the students were turned into gun control activists in an incident in 2018 — more than a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is not a "master debater," especially when faced with talents such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), according to Washington Post congressional reporter Karoun Demirjian. Demirjian noted during a panel on CNN's Inside Politics that Warren's rise in the polls over the past few months have likely been a reflection of her performances at the two Democratic primary debates. That success, Demirjian said, is shifting public opinion away from Biden and toward Warren. "She's gotten a rise out of that whereas Biden is not the master debater people were hoping him to be," Demirjian said....

    Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering [reducing] the former vice president's schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days. Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time [naps for the old guy] as the campaign intensifies in the fall. "He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also...

    Former President Barack Obama, discussing Joe Biden’s run for the high office in 2020, reportedly told his vice president that he didn’t “have to do this.” “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden early in 2019, according to The New York Times. The Times reported that Obama “took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.” Biden, who leads President Trump in several polls on 2020 matchups, said he couldn’t forgive himself if he passed up the opportunity to beat Trump. He initially thought he could beat Trump in 2016, but...

    In the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden to task for his constant name-dropping of Barack Obama. “You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and then dodge it when it’s not,” he said in what was one of my favorite moments ever in any of the debates. According to the New York Times, while Joe Biden was seeking counsel on whether to run for president, Barack Obama tried to talk his former vice president out of running.
  • Joe Biden confuses Burlington, Iowa, with Burlington, Vt., in latest gaffe

    Gaffe-prone Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden reportedly added another factual blunder to his list Friday. During a campaign fundraiser in his home state of Delaware, the former vice president was referencing a speech he had made to a group of 275 people, in which he accused President Trump of "fueling a literal carnage” in the country through his rhetoric. But Biden mistakenly recalled the location of the speech as Burlington, Vt., instead of Burlington, Iowa, according to The Washington Examiner. Whether Biden had Democratic rival Bernie Sanders -- a former mayor of Burlington, Vt. -- on his mind was not...

    In the midst of the hot takes offered up by the 2020 Democrat candidates when the two anti-Semitic U.S. congresswomen were denied entry into Israel, the guy at the front of the pack was quickly reminded that former President Obama’s administration made a similar decision. Joe Biden posted a tweet meant to criticize the Israeli government’s decision. He said he is a supporter of Israel but no one should be denied entry into a democratic state over “ideas”. “No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas”, he said.

"I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race," Dr. Biden said.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden compared President Donald Trump to a childhood bully he would “smack” in the mouth during a CNN interview airing Friday. “The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump,” Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth.” Cuomo called Democratic presidential rival Kamala Harris’ attack on Biden for his position on busing “friendly fire,” then asked how...
