HAGTRESS ALYSSA MILANO DRAGS HER FAKE ASS INTO THE CONVERSATION ABOUT GROPER JOE BIDEN.
4. Joe Biden’s response that he never meant to make anyone uncomfortable and that he'll listen and learn from anyone who says otherwise is exactly the leadership we need to build a culture where women are heard and are equal.
THAT MIGHT MAKE SENSE . . . IF HE GROPED HIS FIRST WOMAN YESTERDAY. INSTEAD HE HAS A LONG PATTERN OF TOUCHING WOMEN INAPPROPRIATELY AND THE PRESS HAS BEEN CHUCKLING OVER IT FOR YEARS.
SO JOE NEVER NOTICED? IS THAT WHAT ALYSSA WANTS TO SAY?
REACHED FOR COMMENT, ALYSSA DECLARED, "I'M REALLY VAPID AND DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT MYSELF ANYWAY. I GET BORED IF I'M NOT THE CENTER OF ATTENTION. WHAT WERE WE TALKING ABOUT?"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Former Vice President Joe Biden's pursuit of the Democratic Party's presidential nomination hit another sag this weekend as the 2014 Democratic nominee for Lt Governor of Nevada, Lucy Flores, shared her experience of an invasive and boundary free Joe Biden and how he humiliated her. Ruth dubbed him "Boundary-Free Biden." Is it harassment or another example of Biden's sexism? Stephen Collinson (CNN) explains:
Joe Biden is facing the first crisis of his yet-to-be-official, front-running 2020 Democratic presidential campaign.
An allegation by Nevada Democratic politician Lucy Flores that he once made her feel "uneasy" by smelling her hair and kissing the back of her head forced the former vice president's team into damage control mode over the weekend.
Biden said in a personal statement that while he did not recall the alleged incident, it is important for women like Flores to be heard.
Again, sexism or harassment? Remember, his run for the 2008 nomination -- his failed run -- stumbled out of the gate with charges of racism over Joe's remarks about Barack Obama.
On Sunday, Lucy Flores spoke with Korva Coleman on NPR's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED:
COLEMAN: Ms. Flores, can you describe the encounter in your own words?
FLORES: Sure. Well, I mean, it's just as I described. It happened very suddenly. I was not expecting it. It was a campaign rally setting, so there was a lot of chaos, a lot of people, a lot of energy. We were all kind of in public. Vice President Biden and I were never alone together. So as we were waiting to be called up to the stage, the rally had already started. People were already speaking. We were waiting in line. Eva Longoria was in front of me. Joe Biden was behind me.
And, you know, I just all of a sudden feel his hands, and I feel him get up really close to me. And I'm just, you know, at that point processing, and I'm thinking, OK. This is really weird. But then he leans in, and then he, like, inhales. And then he proceeds to plant this long kiss on the top of my head. And the entire time, I'm just kind of, like, what is happening?
COLEMAN: As we mentioned, former Vice President Biden has released a statement and says if he did behave this way, he doesn't believe he acted inappropriately. What is your response to his statement?
FLORES: I need the vice president and all men and all people who are in positions of power to understand that in that setting, in that situation, that kind of behavior is absolutely inappropriate. A big part of the reason why I'm also speaking out now is because he has a history of this. This is not an unknown issue. There have been stories. There are pictures. There are videos. I think that there is a very severe disconnect and lack of empathy for what the women on the receiving end are feeling.
I understand that he's trying to clear up his intention. But it's not about your intention. Whether it was an innocent gesture, whether it was a sexual gesture - none of that matters. It is about the person on the receiving end of that inappropriate behavior by someone who is very, very clearly more powerful than you. That power dynamic is important to recognize.
Former Secretary Ash Carter and his wife Stephanie Carter are longtime friends of Joe Biden which is why it's no surprise that Stephanie has been trotted out to defend Joe Biden and minimize his own actions in public with her. Before Stephanie's allowed to minimize again, every reporter repeating her claims needs to acknowledge that she's been provided to the press by Joe's 'exploratory' campaign. This is not a woman coming forward on her own or as an independent agent the way Linda Flores did. This is a woman allowing herself to be WHORED by a political campaign -- and that's the only word for it.
A woman has come out and made a serious and honest charge and Stephanie is trotted out to WHORE and to minimize what Joe did.
There's no need to hide behind skirts, Joe, so stop doing. And stop setting one woman against another. That's not presidential. It also dishonors the six women -- a record breaking six women -- running for the party's presidential nomination this year.
Stephanie Carter is dishonest by stepping forward at the urging of Joe Biden and his handlers. It's a WHORE move and it's outrageous that she thinks her nonsense in any way trumps what happened to Flores. She should be ashamed of herself.
ADDED: For those not getting it, Stephanie Carter could have told her story (her cover story) at any time. The incident took place in 2015. She waits until Flores steps forward to discuss her own 2014 incident. After Flores speaks out, Stephanie shows up to undercut her. That makes her a whore. She's had nothing to say for four years but let a woman speak out and call out Joe and all the sudden Stephanie agrees to write the requested piece -- and it was requested.
For those who need the slow walk, woman A steps forward to share something painful and embarrassing. In less than 24 hours, woman B shows up to cover for a man by insisting the same thing happened to her and she didn't mind. It's whoring. It's undercutting another woman and the pain she felt. Stephanie has allowed herself to be used to undercut a woman in service of a man. That's not sisterhood. It is whoring.
On today's MORNING EDITION (NPR) reports on Biden's actions with Flores and they also fail to note that Stephanie Carter's actions are not spontaneous but were taking at the urging of others.
