Morning Digestion – 4-2-19: VP GROPER BIDEN UNDER FIRE, SOME LIBS RUSH TO DEFEND, OTHERS TELL HIM TO GET OUT.

Ok for those of you who were crushed by my absence yesterday–I was sick!–I’m still sick, but couldn’t sleep, got up and started going thru the news sites and realized it’s so crazy out there I have to at least do the Morning Digestion. May have the oomph to head to the studio later to do the podcast. We’ll see. 50/50 I’d say.

So Biden has to be the story today. A second woman has come out to say WTF? He grabs me from behind, hands on shoulders, sticks his nose in my hair, I can hear him sniffing, then he whispers crap in my ear. WTF?

Well, guess what? We’ve been watching the old coot do this for years. Evidently he thought it was his personal schtick. He says he never intended to make a woman uncomfortable. Well, of course he’d say that. Mika says he’s just very friendly and very “safe”, but Tapper points out that if you want to try this yourself you’ll get fired. And I second Tapper on that: go ahead, try it. See how long it takes HR to come find your sorry ass and toss you out the door.

Nancy Pelosi says it’s not disqualifying. I’m telling you in the #metoo era he cannot be the nominee fo the Democrat party. These are the people who are the front lines of chasing down any old guy they think they can stomp into a mudhole.

Some other stuff, including the WTF story of the day: Mick Jagger going in for heart surgery and Keith Richard is still upright and chugging along. How’d that happen?

  1. Oh my goodness. A man lays his hands on a woman. This is news? What has this world come to?
    When I was a practicing public defender, my counterpart deputy district attorney grabbed me and took me down in front of my clients and the world in the court holding cell – saying ‘let’s make out’ – I laughed my ass off. It was a break of laughter in the endless craze we were in – no malice. American needs to regain a sense of humor. UGH

  2. Joe Biden should have been out of consideration for any office years ago…he’s hung on way longer than his ‘expiration date’…As Jack Tapper said if an ordinary man (or woman for that matter) went around touching people like that they would be fired. One warning and out…people don’t even like you doing that to their kids any more hugging and kissing on them.

    I remember when I was a kid any relative or neighbor who gave us a Christmas or Birthday gift we were expected to let then hug and kiss us. It was expected and considered normal…not any more.
