Joe Biden is having a fairly bad week. And, when it comes to gaffe-prone Joe Biden, that’s saying something.
The former Vice President is undoubtedly running for President in 2020. While he has been hemming and hawing around the subject for a few weeks, it is no less a forgone conclusion than the idea that the sun will rise tomorrow in the east.
And while this may sound exciting, Biden has been absolutely hammered with allegations of inappropriate behavior by at least seven women. The actions in question were downright creepy; smelling their hair, holding them in position to touch foreheads, or even forcing them to rub noses with the longtime Washington figure.
Now, Joe’s wife Jill Biden is speaking out to seemingly defend her husband, albeit in a strange way.
He was always holding my hand, putting his arm around me, or brushing the hair from my face,’ when they began dating, the former Second Lady writes in her ‘deeply personal’ memoir Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself due out next month and exclusively obtained by DailyMailTV.
She admits that being thrust into a family of ‘huggers’ made her feel ‘strange and uncomfortable’, writing that Joe and his two young sons ‘never wanted to miss a chance to hold a hand, wrap their arms around each other, or give a kiss’.
She says that as an introvert, she ‘sometimes found all that affection draining’, but knew that it was the death of his first wife Neilia and their baby daughter Naomi that gave the family an understanding of ‘how precious every second could be’, which was displayed by ‘constantly touching’ and ‘being connected to each other’.
Biden on Friday attempted to make light of his recent accusations during a speaking appearance; a move seen by many as insensitive and callous.
Videos of Joe Biden’s oddly affectionate mannerisms have been circulating online for years, calling into question the timing of these latest allegations as politicly stunts…possibly perpetrated by a fellow democrat.
