Although it has not yet been a major chorus, there have been more than a few Democrats who have publicly stumped for former Vice President Joe Biden to become the face of the party.
There’s one massive problem with this suggestion: Biden is a well-documented “creep” who has already been denounced by several mainstream periodicals for his behavior.
On YouTube, several people have created videos dedicated to all the times that Biden acted inappropriately in public. In one, future Attorney General Jeff Sessions can be seen pushing away Biden’s grasping hand as it reaches for his granddaughter.
Twitter user and journalist Richard Armande Mills has dedicated his recent string of tweets to exposing Biden’s audacious behavior while Vice President.
In one tweet, Mills shared a video showing Biden touching the chest of a little girl during a photo-op.
In another tweets, Mills wrote about how Biden has a habit of smelling female hair, especially the hair of young girls.
“As former VP, Biden had a habit of smelling the hair of women and (particularly) little girls. In this clip, he fixes the hair of a little girl, conveniently placing his hands near her chest area. Her and the other young girl beside her clearly seem uncomfortable by it all,” Mills tweeted.
In each one of these clips, those touched by Biden seems clearly distraught and uncomfortable.
Video clips are not the only piece of evidence possibly damning Mr. Biden. Writer Jon Gabriel has also tweeted about those accusations against Biden which claim that he routinely walked around female Secret Service personnel while naked. If true, than any possible run for the presidency for Biden would be met with a crashing wave of sexual harassment allegations.
Many liberal pundits themselves think that a Biden nomination would a disaster for the Democrat Party. The Daily Beast wrote an article entitled,”Dear Lord Would Joe Biden Be a Terrible Candidate for These Times.” The Huffington Post provided their own two cents by saying that “Joe Biden 2020 Is A Terrible Idea In A Post-Weinstein America.”
Suffice to say, the pictures, videos, and stories about Biden’s sexual indiscretions would not play well with Democratic voters in 2020.
There is a catch to all of this, however. Biden was named by a liberal magazine as the “most popular” politician in America back in August. Historically, Biden has always performed well among African American voters and white working class voters. The latter group of people abandoned Hillary Clinton in droves during the 2016 election in order to cast their votes for Donald Trump. Biden, Jim Webb, and Joe Manchin are the only big-name Democrats who could woo these voters back to the Democratic fold.
The problem with the Democrats is that they seem bent on getting rid of Biden without finding a replacement who could take up his populist mantle. This is a bad ploy that will further alienate white working class voters away from the increasingly racialist and radical Democrats.
As “creepy” as Biden may be, he’s one of the better candidates that the Democrats have.
