Creepy Uncle Joe Returns, Despite Wife’s Promise


Critics slammed former Vice President Joe Biden for an inappropriate comment he made during a town hall in Houston earlier this week, despite his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, claiming that his creepy behavior “won’t happen again.”

Earlier this year several women came forward and accused Biden of inappropriately touching them through the years, allegations that Biden later joked about in public.

Since then, Biden has claimed that he had seen the error of his actions but would not go as far as to apologize for them.

At a town hall in Houston on Tuesday, Biden showed America how little he has really changed, though.

Yahoo News reported:

During the event, Biden took a question from a young girl in the audience about divisions in the U.S.

“What I’m going to do, is if you give me an address, I’m going to write you a longer answer and tell you the exact things I’m going to do, OK? Promise?” he said. “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.”

Biden then asked the girl what her favorite subject was in school, to which she replied “journalism, I guess.” He joked that he should “be more circumspect” in his answers as he took her by the hand and led her over to the section of the room where members of the press were stationed.

Then, Biden put his hands on the young girl’s shoulders, saying, “The reason who we are who we are is called a free press.”

It’s not exactly the change in behavior that Biden had previously promised.

On Wednesday, during an interview with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show,” Dr. Jill Biden was asked about her husband’s inappropriate touching.

“It took a lot of courage for women to step forward and say, you know, you’re in my space, and Joe heard that. And it just won’t happen again. He heard what they were saying,” she said.

It doesn’t appear that Joe Biden has “heard” what his accusers are saying, however, given his most recent actions.
