As expected, the most recent Democratic presidential debate was a dud…again. They wasted time talking about President Trump how the impeachment hearings have been going.
The debate moderators consistently tossed softball questions to them and fail to challenge them on the issue, but the debate at least it was somewhat amusing, especially when Joe Biden started talking about hitting women.
One of the moderators asked Biden, “Vice President Biden, the #MeToo movement has forced a cultural reckoning around the issue of sexual violence and harassment against women in America. Are there specific actions that you would take early in your administration to address this problem?”
Biden, in his usual style, made a fool of himself once again in his response.
“Yes, and by the way, it’s one of the reasons the first thing I would do is make sure we pass the Violence Against Women Act re-authorization. The fact is, what happens now is we, in fact, have to fundamentally change the culture, the culture of how women are treated. That’s why as Vice President, I asked the president if I could start the movement on the college campuses to say it’s on us, it’s everyone’s responsibility.”
“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs.”

Biden’s campaign also flubbed the day of the debate when they sent out an email saying that he had just finished the debate…6 hours too early!
According to The Daily Wire,
Biden’s campaign stumbled heading into the debate on Wednesday as the campaign “accidentally sent out a fundraising email celebrating his performance at Wednesday’s Democratic debate – hours before the event had even begun,” Fox News reported. “The message was sent out to Biden supporters several minutes after 3 p.m. ET, nearly six hours prior to the start time.”
“I’m leaving the fifth Democratic debate now,” the email stated. “I hope I made you proud out there and I hope I made it clear to the world why our campaign is so important.”
An hour later, the Biden campaign sent out a follow-up email, stating: “You might have just gotten an email from Joe about just getting off of the debate stage. That’s our bad, team. We know Joe is going to make us proud tonight. We were just so excited for it that we accidentally hit send too soon.”
