It’s a strange time for the #MeToo movement, having former vice president Joe Biden as the leading Democratic presidential candidate.
And some liberals are almost snapping their backbones in two with how far they’re bending over to defend his creepy, physical behavior towards women and young girls.
MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is one of Biden’s staunchest defenders. Just the other day, she lashed out at women for finding the former vice president’s behavior very uncomfortable to watch.
“This is a guy who has hugged five to ten million people and they love the fact that he's touchy and huggy and they run to him and five women are uncomfortable with the way they hugged him,” Brzezinski argued.
One of them says she smelled his hair,” she continued. “I can promise you, I know Joe Biden. He went up behind her and took a deep breath because he was about to go on stage. I want to explain that because there was a woman who accused him of smelling her hair.”
“He’s not interested in your hair! Okay?”
Continuing to address an accusation by former Nevada Democratic state senator Lucy Flores, who says Biden inappropriately touched her in public, Brzezinski added, “He was going on stage. He took a deep breath before he went on stage, and you took it deeply personally and now you're writing a New York Times op-ed about it demanding an apology? This, once again, is completely ridiculous, and the rest of America thinks it's ridiculous, too.”
And then she angrily declared, “I'm done. You guys can continue to talk about this, I won't. I refuse to give it any more time. So take it away.”
Brzezinski also said that anyone who accuses Biden of inappropriate touching needs to apologize.
What the “Morning Joe” co-host said on Tuesday falls in line with another rant she went on recently.
“There’s a lot of things I know about Joe Biden — I’ve known him for a long time — he is extremely affectionate extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way,” she said.
Brzezinski then tried to throw doubt on Flores’ character, saying, "Are we allowed to bring up that Lucy Flores is a huge Bernie [Sanders] person and she has political connections that might be counter to Biden’s goals?"
“Is it OK to bring up that this could be politically motivated, or are we just supposed to take all the words and the fact that she said she was violated at face value?” she asked her audience.
In other words, it’s not “women need to be believed” but rather “women need to be questioned.” Quite a flip-flop for the Democratic Party since the days of Kavanaugh, not very long ago.
