Former Vice President Joe Biden has come under fire for his creepy interactions with women over the years.
During a fndraising dinner for the National Republican Congressional Committee, President Trump slammed the potential 2020 candidate.
“Our former vice president. I don’t know him well,” Trump said while speaking to the crowd. “Was gonna say, welcome to the world, Joe. You having a good time, Joe? Are you having a good time?”
Trump then told a story where he wanted to kiss a United States general in Iraq who promised him that he would destroy the Islamic State enemies in Syria in a matter of weeks.
“I said, ‘General: come here and give me a kiss.’ I felt like Joe Biden,” The President joked.
Biden has been accused by four women in less than a week of sexual harassment.
The whole movement started when former Democratic Nevada Senator Lucy Flores came forward and said that Biden sexually harassed her in 2014.
“Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction,” Flores wrote. “As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?’”
“I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified,” Flores said. “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. … I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”
Flores isn’t the only woman to come forward and say something.
Amy Lappos, a former volunteer congressional aide for Democratic Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes claimed that during a fundraising event for Himes in 2009, Biden grabbed her head and pulled her in close to rub noses.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Lappos said. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”
“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos continued. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”
