Allegations against Biden

Standard

Former Vice-President Biden has been accused of hugging a woman in an inapposite manner. The female concerned said it was not sexual assault. No doubt Republicans will seek to capitalize on this. These accusations are not exactly ‘grab em by the pussy’ territory. In decades of public life only two women have said that Biden made them feel gauche.

20 women accused Trump of the worst kinds of sexual assault. But according to Republicans that is a non-issue. I am not certain if Trump is guilty. We have to choose between believing a man who has told over 4 000 proven lies on the record since become president and  believing 20 women. I am not sure who is telling the truth. But I can hazard a guess.
