A sex scandal from the past could sink this top Democrat

There is one Democrat emerging as the top challenger to Donald Trump.

But their campaign could be over before it begins.

That’s because one sex scandal from the past could sink this top Democrat.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is sitting atop the Democrat Presidential polls and raised a whopping $6.3 million on his first day as a candidate.

But a scandal from his past threatens everything.

In the #MeToo era, Democrats have adopted the “believe all women” line when allegations of sexual harassment are made against conservative men.

But in 1991 – when then-Senator Biden was chair of the Judiciary Committee – Biden claimed Anita Hill was lying when she claimed Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her.

No one took Hill’s claims seriously and many Americans believed they were part of an organized smear campaign to destroy a black conservative.

But in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, liberals are looking back at Biden’s performance in the Thomas hearings and ripping him for not taking Hill’s side in order to derail a conservative Supreme Court nominee.

Biden tried to take the edge off these attacks by calling Hill to apologize.

It did not go well.

The New York Times reports:

But Ms. Hill says the call from Mr. Biden left her feeling deeply unsatisfied.

In a lengthy telephone interview on Wednesday, she declined to characterize Mr. Biden’s words to her as an apology and said she was not convinced that he has taken full responsibility for his conduct at the hearings — or for the harm he caused other victims of sexual harassment and gender violence.

She said she views Mr. Biden as having “set the stage” for last year’s confirmation of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who, like Justice Thomas, was elevated to the court despite accusations against him that he had acted inappropriately toward women. And, she added, she was troubled by the recent accounts of women who say Mr. Biden touched them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable…

…“I cannot be satisfied by simply saying, ‘I’m sorry for what happened to you,’” said Ms. Hill, now a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at Brandeis University. “I will be satisfied when I know that there is real change and real accountability and real purpose.”

This issue is a tricky one for Biden.

He’s an older white man, and Hill is a black woman.

In the identity-obsessed Democrat Party, that makes Biden guilty of white privilege while Hill is a victim from a “marginalized group.”

How Democrat voters process the events from 1991 and Hill and Biden’s present day comments on them could determine the fate of Biden’s campaign.

    Is that all you got? Come on try harder. Add a little substance to your snitty childish comment. For instance tell us something like our president worries you that he’ll cut you and your ilk off from free “stuff” that too many liberals feel they are entitled to.

  2. J. Burns says:

    It’s rediculous to hate a good smart man. Too bad you are one of the many leftist loonies.

  3. J. Burns says:

    You are so right.

    Too funny George. I needed,a good laugh after reading the arrogant Kendall blanket liberal comments. Some people say Michelle Obama is really a man , well I think Big Bass mouth Maxy takes the cake for the most unlikely to win a beauty contest and her persona is a ugly as the mug.

  5. Kendall says:

    If Trump truly “loves teh uneducated” then why do all of his economic policies favor the super-wealthy?

  6. Kendall says:

    Indeed. Trump had to pay for it.

  7. Kendall says:

    I am overjoyed to that you can see how perfect I am been. My mother and wife will also be most pleased, if highly skeptical. You mistake stones for inconvenient doses of rationality. The Electoral College gave us President Trump. I wish I knew what being as perfect as Jesus would be like, though I imagine that will only come when we meet face-to-face in paradise. Other questions?

  8. Linda H says:

    B Taylor, If President Trump truely loves the uneducated then he must worship the ground you walk on. I was born and raised for 65 years in the south and the sound of Sessions talking was like fingernails on chalkboard.

  9. Linda H says:

    Chris, I see you have a few stones to throw. At least Trump don’t have one under his desk like Clinton did. Like the old saying goes. It takes one to know one. You obviously know one when you see one.

  10. Linda H says:

    Kendall, It is easy to see that you have never done anything wrong or immoral in your life. We all can tell by all the stones that you are throwing at our God given President. How does it feel to be as perfect as Jesus? Nobody else would know how it feels to be perfect. Answer my question then maybe we can talk.

  11. Kendall says:

    So let me see if I understand: A person’s employer or affiliation can release them from acting morally. Only if that is true does your comment make any sense at all.

  12. Kendall says:

    Name-calling is the resort of people who don’t know what they’re talking about. Read an economic history of post-WWII America and maybe we can talk.
