Last week, former Nevada congresswoman Lucy Flores, went public with an accusation that former Vice President Joe Biden kissed her without permission and in a manner that she believes was inappropriate.
Of course, Biden denies the accusation and claims that he doesn’t remember the incident, which causes me to question his ability to server as president.
If the incident did happen and Biden doesn’t remember it, it means that he has a flawed memory or has done the same thing so many times that he can’t recall that particular incident.
Either way, these are not the qualities one wants as a president, if he decides to run for the White House in 2020.
Washington Examiner – Joe Biden says he ‘never’ thought he acted inappropriately after being accused of kissing woman without consent – Former Vice President Joe Biden released a statement on Sunday responding to the allegations that he kissed a Nevada politician without her consent, saying he doesn’t recall the moment and never thought he acted inappropriately toward women.
“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately,” Biden wrote. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.”
“I may not recall these moments the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention. And I will,” Biden added…
Note that this accusation is from a fellow Democrat and not someone from an opposing political party.
I’ve previously written that Biden does not have presidential qualities due to his inability to make decisions or to get over personal tragedy and move on.
Months after his son died, Biden was still unable to get over it and decide if he would run for the president in 2016.
A president has to be able to put those personal tragedies behind him and make important decisions in a timely manner.
