Joe Biden is going to run for president.
But the Democratic presidential favorite is about to watch his political career cave in before his very eyes.
That’s because this scandal involving groping a woman has Joe Biden fearing it’s over.
Joe Biden is perhaps best known as serving as President Barack Obama’s former Vice President for eight years.
And after months of speculation, it seems clear that Biden is on the verge of jumping into the campaign for the Democratic nomination in 2020.
Biden leads in all polls, and his name ID strength plus his connections with the Democratic Party’s establishment wing places him as a strong candidate and potential favorite in the party’s primary contest.
But there’s one huge problem.
Joe Biden has a massive skeleton in his closet, and it deals with his long-recorded history of dealing with women.
In the era of heightened scrutiny regarding how elected officials and other prominent figures treat women, Joe Biden is clearly failing the test.
The New York Post reports, “A Connecticut woman is the latest to accuse former vice president and rumored 2020 hopeful Joe Biden of inappropriate contact. Amy Lappos, 43, says Biden grabbed her by the head and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich.”
This is just one incident in dozens where Biden has displayed this sort of behavior to other women.
And it gets far worse for the former Vice President.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos spoke out to the press on Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”
Lappos wrote about this even more on social media, explaining how she feels powerful figures like Biden should be held accountable for this sort of behavior.
“I can speak from experience when I say it’s an incredibly uncomfortable situation and not at all acceptable. We need to hold our men to the same standards we hold all men,” Lappos wrote in a Facebook post about the incident.
Biden’s camp has ignored the allegations so far, possibly out of a hope that they’ll just fade away.
But his explanation for the dozens of photos of him awkwardly grabbing other women over the years is outrageous.
Biden’s camp is now alluding that conservative trolls online have been digitally manipulating photos of him to show him inappropriately touching women.
That’s laughable, but apparently, it serves as Biden’s way to celebrate April Fools’ Day.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of documented photos online showing Biden touching women, often gripping their shoulders or their neck or head.
And his argument that right-wing trolls are digitally editing these photos is laughable.
Of course, Biden knows that’s not true, but he has to spin this story in some way to defend himself as he prepares to run for president.
