Ever since Barack Obama left the White House, he’s tried to worm his way back into the spotlight by attacking President Trump. But there’s one issue he’s been strangely silent on as new allegations have surfaced.
His former vice president, Joe Biden, remains on the hot seat concerning his inappropriate contact with women. However, Obama hasn’t offered one word of support for Biden over this scandal. His silence spells even more trouble for Biden.
Rumor has it he could be quietly supporting the bid of Sen. Kamala Harris of California, which is an odd move considering his history with Biden. He’s called Biden a “brother” and said choosing him as a running mate was the “best” decision.
But over the past few weeks, as Biden’s name has been tarnished further, Obama hasn’t said a single word. Either their close relationship is a joke or Obama is simply waiting for a formal announcement about by Biden.
Attempting to mitigate his growing negative image, Biden recently released an apology video on Twitter. He promised to be “mindful and respectful of people’s personal space,” a pledge someone shouldn’t ever have to make in the first place.
Can Biden escape the #MeToo movemen’t? Probably not. He has many younger opponnents in the Democratic field. I imagine several familes are saying that Speaker Paul Ryan should implement a simulation, and it’s a good movie.
