Three Republican Lawmakers Defend Biden

Three Republican lawmakers Wednesday defended former Vice President Joe Biden following allegations he inappropriately touched four women.

“Irrational Democrat media assault on @JoeBiden,” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa tweeted. “You would think he had ‘sexual relations’ with an intern in the Oval Office . . . except Democrats aggressively defended Bill Clinton. Joe Biden is just an affectionate guy.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters Biden was just a “glad-handling politician” with good intentions.

“Maybe at times he’s done some things that make people feel uncomfortable, but it matters to me that what his intent is,” he said, according to the HuffPost. “I just think he’s a good guy. I think he means nothing bad by this.”

Two women earlier this week told The New York Times that Biden’s touches made them feel uncomfortable. Former Nevada state lawmaker Lucy Flores and Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide to Rep. Jim Hines, D-Conn., were the first two women to allege inappropriate touching.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told reporters she never felt uncomfortable in her interactions with Biden.

“I’ve known Joe Biden for so many years, and he is a very friendly, affectionate individual who is a natural toucher — never found him to be inappropriate,” she told reporters Tuesday.

  1. It’s not that exVP Biden is being raked over the coals every day and night, but the MS media has actually reported a damaging story. Bill Clinton sexually asauled women befor he ran and contined to do so thru out his 2 terms as Pres. If any Republican politician had done what Biden has admitted they would have been on every headline/lead story until we knew the neame of his mailman. From the party that has attempted to revoke every one of the Bill of Rights, it’s a bit difficult to feel sorry for good ‘ol Joe.

  2. If a boss or co-worker tried that on the job, it would go in his personnel record and the offender would be sent to sensitivity training, at the very least. That type of behvior has never been acceptable. The politicians who excuse Biden are as bad as Creepy Uncle Joe.

That type of behavior has never been acceptable. The politicians and others who excuse Biden are as bad as Creepy Uncle Joe.
