Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden told an NBC audience Monday that he wouldn’t worry much about a potential 2020 matchup against President Trump because he’s “Middle-class Joe.” A hypothetical election showdown between Mr. Biden, 77, and Mr. Trump was laid before a “Megyn Kelly Today” audience to start the week when the former vice president said blue-collar voters “love” him more than the president. He said that while he is still unsure about future plans, his connection with middle-class voters is not in doubt. (Snip) “I understand the Rust Belt. Donald Trump has no notion what those people are
Comments: Middle-class Joe? That´s not what I call him, and by the Dems´ (and the GOPe´s) on playbook, wouldn´t Laughing Joe´s hands-on approach with women be an immediate dealbreaker?
Ol Joe. Always bragging. Remember when he got a deferment from the military for flat feet. 4F. But bragged about how great he was at sports in college. Now he is bragging about how he is better liked then PRESIDENT Trump. He must be smokin the same stuff he was in college.
I just call him Jackass Joe because he struts around like the arrogant assistant manager of a used car lot with the split personality of Karl Childers and a drunken, Tourettes-addled, Winnebago man who overshot his targeted level of incompetence decades ago!
The Democrat party does not want, or have they actively pursued the blue-collar vote in decades. Their biggest donors are anti-union, and against union jobs in coal, steel, pipeline construction, and have proven to be anti-police.
What they seem to champion are low-wage restaurant jobs, hotel jobs, and the "gig" economy which provides ZERO benefits and requires the user to provide all the tools, insurance and overhead.
I am surprised Old Joe hasn´t been rolled up in the Weinstein wars. This guy is the classic definition of a lecher. I guess if you are a deep mental state Democrat, you get immunity from "fondling-itis"
Boy, does he ever misread so-called blue collar voters! ...We still think of him as that repulsive dem Senator whose elitist & downright mean attitude sought to demean hard working Americans called before his endless show-boat committees back in his earlier years in the swamp. He´s not the bumbling old ex-VP as staged & presented by the dem´s media machine!
interesting..that over on the Daily Mail UK..they are trashing him on that thread..funny!!! and that is from people..all over..I think it would be hilarious if they did run him..dumbest thing they could ever do..but then...
He is properly called the ultimate DC swamp rat. He has been a DC liberal Democrat politician just about longer then any other DC swamp rat. Besides he is connected to Obama who selected as second fiddle on the Obama ticket precisely because of his DC swamp rat credentials.
Joe Biden´s campaign for 2020 has officially launched. All of the liberal talk shows have been featuring him daily and ad nauseam.
Despite his public shows of laughter and mirth, Joe Biden is actually a mean-spirited, egotistical, shallow man, who has a penchant for inappropriately hugging, touching, and whispering into the ears of females, very young and old.
Am hoping that the multiple videos displaying his overt and improper behavior will continue to surface - certainly, there are enough of them to furnish critical commentary for years.
There is one particular and disturbing video that has stayed in my mind - it is that of a very young girl standing in front of him at a public function. The hand of Joe Biden slips slowly down her side until his thumb touches the side of her breast. Although she is very young, she instinctively and immediately shrugs her way away from him. The expression on her face is one of annoyance and disdain. It is hoped with all of my heart that both her youth and time will help to erase this incident from her memory.
Just because you said it doesn´t make it true nor get you elected President Joe. Just ask "severely conservative" Mitt Romney.
Joe Biden could never survive in todays corporate culture. He is a walking Human Resources nightmare. A company could literally base it´s entire Sexual Harassment training on what is not acceptable from one of his press conferences.
No Joe! You can´t rub yourself up against someone´s 12 year old daughter. No Joe! You can´t violate someone´s personal space to stare down their blouse. No Joe! You cannot give unwanted shoulder rubs to female colleagues. No Joe! Patting people on the behind is not acceptable. No Joe! Watching porn at your work station is not acceptable even on your breaks.
Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible. If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did
Gadsden, Ala. — After nearly two weeks of sexual assault allegations from several women, Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Roy Moore attempted to debunk claims from one of his accusers Beverly Young-Nelson. Moore’s campaign sent the following in a press release: Gadsden, Ala. – On Monday evening, the Moore Campaign unveiled statements from key witnesses that completely bust the story of Beverly Nelson and Gloria Allred and further reveal an unconscionable bias on the part of state and national press to hide the truth from Alabama voters who will undoubtedly see through the “fake news” and elect Judge Moore for the man that
The floundering Daily News lost $90.4 million over the last three years — including $23.7 million of red ink in the year ended Dec. 25. Revenue last year tumbled 14.2 percent, to $144.78 million, according to a regulatory filing on Monday. Paid print Monday-to-Friday circulation slipped to 182,472 in the second quarter, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. (Snip) The Daily News was able to trim its losses in 2017 by $5.3 million over 2016 only by aggressively slashing staff and other expenses. Compensation costs tumbled 16.1 percent in 2017 from the previous year. The declining circulation meant the company
Federal Way, Wash. — A vicious attack left a woman in Federal Way with broken bones in her face. It might have been motivated by her effort to help others — warning them of a man who approached her asking for directions and then began fondling himself. The victim, 35-year-old Amanda Edwards, says it started in a Safeway parking lot and ended on her walk home. (Snip) Edwards was at Safeway to buy dinner for her three kids around 6:15 Monday night. Instead – she returned home with four fractures in her face, including a crack down the roof of her mouth.
A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.
A Department of Homeland Security official resigned Thursday after a report revealed he had made racist remarks in past radio interviews. The Rev. Jamie Johnson, director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at DHS, said in a 2008 radio show that the black community had turned “America´s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” (Snip) In another discussion, Johnson said President George W. Bush made a “critical mistake” after the Sept. 11 terror attacks when he called Islam a religion of peace. “People who want a moderate version of Islam worldwide, the Islam that
Embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday said allegations that he sexually harassed women and girls won’t push him out of the race, and instead called on the GOP’s Senate leader to step down. Moore once again forcefully denied the accusations, and cut ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had called on Moore to step aside. “Many of you have recognized that this is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Moore told reporters. “I want to tell you
Des Moines, Iowa — As he tows a 96-square-foot house around Des Moines, Joe Stevens is overwhelmed by the intense, sometimes tearful support he receives from churches, schools and service groups for his plan to use the trendy little structures to help homeless people. But when Stevens actually tried to create a village of the homes in Iowa’s largest city, the response was far different. (Snip) In at least a dozen cases across the nation, neighbors organized to stop tiny house projects, including in Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; San Jose, California; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tallahassee, Florida; and Bend, Oregon.
Target Corp.’s holiday-quarter profit forecast missed analyst expectations, sending its shares down 10 percent on Wednesday as hopes faded that the retailer would make a shopping season comeback. Target has missed Wall Street’s fourth-quarter profit expectations for the past two years. It is gearing up for the holidays by cutting prices and introducing delivery options to compete with Wal-Mart and online sellers, moves that can lure customers but crimp margins. (Snip) “This is still a very competitive environment, and Target has no choice but to respond to that.. the problem is that Wall Street don’t necessarily understand
An illegal immigrant was charged this week in the death of a New York socialite who was found bludgeoned to death in her hilltop estate two years ago, the end result of an elaborate international manhunt. Esdras Marroquin Gomez, 32, pleaded not guilty Monday at his arraignment on a murder charge in the death of 83-year-old Lois Colley, according to the Westchester County district attorney´s office, who said he was indicted by a grand jury last year. "The murder scene was horrendous," Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino said. "From our evaluation, we believe the murder weapon was a home fire
A special Haitian Senate commission is accusing more than a dozen former government officials and heads of private firms of embezzling $2 billion in Venezuelan oil loans — money that could have helped the country rebuild after its devastating earthquake in 2010. An anti-corruption investigation concluded that charges should be filed against two former prime ministers, several ex-ministers and the owners of private firms on grounds they misappropriated and embezzled money that left post-quake Haiti with unfinished government buildings, poorly constructed housing and overpriced public works contracts. (Snip) “It can be declared that the PETROCARIBE has been the object of embezzlement,
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.
Kathy Griffin is back with another unhinged rant, blaming Hollywood, Trump and Fox News for her complete career self-decapitation.Griffin saw both her comedic and television hosting career go into free fall after posing with a picture of President Trump’s severed head. Griffin was subsequently fired by CNN and had several gigs canceled in the toxic political fallout from the stunt.Now, Griffin is asking for sympathy for being poor from an austere hotel room in Europe in the middle of her world tour.In a raw video posted to her YouTube page, Griffin complains that Hollywood does not want her anymore and
UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released. Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond
Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by Clintons,
ALBANY — Fox News host and TV judge Jeanine Pirro is heading to court herself after being ticketed for excessive speeding Sunday in upstate New York. State Police say Pirro was clocked driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone when she was stopped by a trooper at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County. A police source said she was driving a Cadillac. In a statement released by Fox News, Pirro said she was racing to see her sick mother in Elmira. “I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old
A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.
Dozens of teachers have quit their jobs in Pennsylvania´s capital city amid a wave of violence from students as early as the first grade, it has emerged. The Harrisburg Education Association (HEA) said that at least 45 teachers resigned between July and October, and more have followed since. Those who remain are now demanding more help from administrators. ´I have been kicked, punched, hit, scratched. I´ve had a student physically restraining me in front of my other students,´ first-grade teacher Amanda Shaeffer told board members, according to Penn Live. She added that ´many of the personal things that I have
Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior
Donna Brazile said in an interview Tuesday that Russian hackers destroyed “critical data” when they breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Brazile, who served as interim DNC chair for a portion of last year, made the comments during an interview with Joe Madison on Sirius XM. (Snip) The DNC pushed back on Brazile´s comments, saying in a statement to The Hill, "Her allegation is inaccurate - there is no evidence the voter file was compromised." Brazile stepped in as chair of the DNC after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) was forced to resign following
Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women. During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention. (Snip) “He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he has impeccable integrity on all of our issues. Give John Conyers a big round of applause.” C-SPAN captured her comments and those of others who spoke at the event. In her address she
A second federal judge has halted the Trump administration’s proposed transgender military ban, finding that active-duty service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” because of the president’s policy. The ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis in a Maryland case comes just weeks after another judge in Washington blocked the administration’s proposal that would have stopped military recruitment of transgender men and women and possibly forced the dismissal of current service members, starting in March. The preliminary injunction issued by the judge in Baltimore on Tuesday goes further than the
A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign. (Snip) When asked “what do you think about the allegations made against Roy Moore,” 45% believe all or some of the allegations; 34% do not believe the allegations; and 21% believe some or all of the allegations, but say it has not changed their vote. Among party lines, nearly half (48%) of Republican voters surveyed do not believe the allegations. Another 24% of Republicans say they believe some
Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing
