Stick a Fork in Joe Biden

New Biden Accuser: He Complimented
My Breasts When I Was 14 Years Old

Can she prove this? She says there were witnesses:

“When it was Biden and my aunt’s turn to say hello he quickly turned to me and asked how old I was. I replied with my age and he replied with the comment ‘Fourteen? You’re very well endowed for 14!’ I was confused but it was definitely weird, he looked me up and down and hovered his eyes on my chest so I had some clue [about] the notion of his comment but didn’t fully understand at the time. We quickly separated from his area after the encounter.”

Could it be argued that this is defensible? Were her breasts so unusually large that Biden’s expression of astonishment was justified? I mean, in the interests of bipartisanship and, uh . . . due process rights, should we give the old guy a break if she was sporting 38DDs in ninth grade?

Never mind. I suspect my Republican readers are not in a mood to be tolerant of Biden’s idiosyncrasies, but the question is whether Democrats believe it’s OK for a U.S. Senator to remark on the size of a 14-year-old’s breasts, no matter how astonishingly large they might be.

My hunch is that this is just one more shoe dropping, in what will quickly become an avalanche of accusations against Biden. It’s kind of like what happened with Roy Moore. The guy had been in public life in Alabama for decades, and I’d followed Moore’s career since the 1990s, and never heard a word of any inappropriate behavior by him. Then all at once, Moore was accused by a half-dozen women of having harassed them when they were teenagers in the 1970s and ’80s. This avalanche effect has toppled many prominent men in the #MeToo era; once the first accusation of misconduct is made, the accusers seem to come out of the woodwork. One day you’re a senator or a movie star or a network news anchor, and next thing you know Gloria Allred’s holding a press conference with weeping “survivors” and your career’s over.

Once someone becomes a target of this machinery of destruction, the result is never really in doubt. If indeed Biden made the remark attributed to him, isn’t it likely he’s made similar remarks to other large-breasted girls? Of course it is, and now that the starting whistle of the #MeToo Accusation Derby has blown, every other woman who was ever an object of Biden’s interest will soon come forward to tell her tale.

Cui bono? Of course, we know the answer to that question.
