Joe Biden has announced his run for president in 2020. This announcement comes after some women came forward about inappropriate interactions they have had with Biden. Some of the incidents seem relatively minor- especially comparing them to Trump’s long list of accusations. After the allegations surfaced, Biden released a video on his twitter, apologizing for his behavior and vowing to be “more mindful” when interacting with people. Whether or not you believe the accusations, they raise questions about how men in power act with women. These questions have been raised before, but more women are finding themselves able to identify with the women who have accused Biden. Actions that may not warrant a full H.R. conversation, but still make you feel uncomfortable and dirty.
Many Democrats have put their support behind Biden, though Bernie Sanders remains the frontrunner in the Democratic Presidential nomination race. To put it simply, the hypocrisy coming from Democratic supporters of Biden is revolting. Most people who are supporting Biden’s bid for the presidency are the same people who criticized Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, and other men who were accused of sexual assault. How can you be appalled by the actions of these men, but be okay with the actions of Joe Biden? Politics have become a race for democrats and republicans to compete; it is no longer about serving the people, it’s all about power.
so, eat the rich and vote Bernie 2020.
