Former Vice President Joe Biden refuses to apologize for his well-documented history of groping, kissing, and pawing at women and children. Why? Because Joe says he had no ill intentions when he touched people without their consent.
Joe Biden: I’ve Never Been Disrespectful’
“I’m not sorry for any of my intentions,” Joe told reporters Friday (video below). “I’m not sorry for anything that I have ever done. I have never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman.”
So basically, Biden is claiming that because he didn’t intend to sexually harass the women he touched inappropriately, that means he did nothing wrong.
Reporter to Joe Biden: “There're some women who wanna hear directly ‘I am sorry,’ are you sorry for the way that you behaved?”

Joe Is the Democratic Frontrunner
However, Biden conceded that he should have been more aware of how uncomfortable his creepy interactions could make the women and children he touched feel.
“I’m sorry I didn’t understand more,” Biden said. “I made it clear that if I made anyone feel [uncomfortable], I feel badly about that. It was never my intention. Ever.”
Since last week, at least eight women have come forward to accuse Joe Biden of groping, kissing, and inappropriately touching them over the years. The curious timing of the allegations has caught Biden off-guard.
However, it shouldn’t be a surprise, since all the latest polls have Biden as the clear front-runner to win the Democratic primary election if he enters the race.
This makes Joe a huge threat to other candidates, who potentially could have had something to do with the sudden barrage of seedy accusations coming out of the woodworks.
The Democratic Party has made it clear that it wants a minority female as its presidential nominee — and Biden is in the way if he enters the race.
Joe Biden Apologizes for Being a White Man
So far, Joe has not even announced that he’s running for president. However, there are several clear indications that he will enter the race. The first is that he apologized for being a white man.
As HVY previously reported, billionaire Mike Bloomberg — a liberal Independent who votes with Democrats — announced last week that he won’t run because he refuses to apologize for his “white male privilege.”
Bloomberg said it’s expected for a white male Democrat in today’s racially-charged environment to apologize for being a white man.
Bloomberg observed: “Joe Biden went out and apologized for being male, over 50, white.”
Something I wrote for fun on an up-and-coming new website: 🤡

Obama Leaves Biden Twisting In the Wind
Bloomberg then good-naturedly chided Beto O’Rourke, a former U.S. Congressman from Texas who lost his 2018 Senate race to Ted Cruz. O’Rourke is running for president.
“Beto — whatever his name is — he apologized for being born,” said Bloomberg, as the audience erupted in laughter. “I don’t mean to be unkind. A lot of people love him and say he’s a smart guy. And some day if he wins, I’d certainly support him.”
Curiously silent amidst all this drama is Biden’s longtime pal, Barack Obama. The former president — who is the most popular Democratic politician in the United States — has not defended his close friend. What gives?
As CCN reported, Obama’s deafening silence has fueled speculation that he won’t defend Joe because he wants him out of the race.
Why? Because the Democratic Party (and Obama) don’t want their preferred candidate — California Senator Kamala Harris — to have competition from Biden.
