Joe Biden fires back at Trump after the president bashed him with a hypocritical meme.

Former vice president and current democratic presidential front runner (should he decide to run), Joe Biden, has been in hot water over the past few weeks. Four women have accused him of inappropriate contact which included kisses on the back of the head and nose-rubbing.

Biden addressed the accusations in a video posted to Twitter on April 3.

“In my career, I’ve always tried to make a human connection,” Biden said. “That’s my responsibility, I think. I shake hands, I hug people. I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘You can do this. Whether they’re men, women, young or old it’s the way I’ve always been and the way I try to show them that I care about them and that I’m listening.”


President Trump, who has to be giddy that his potential competition in 2020 facing controversy, responded by posting an immature video of Biden fondling himself on Twitter.

Trump’s tweet was incredibly hypocritical being that he’s been accused by over 19 women of sexual assault. He also notoriously bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy” in an "Access Hollywood" tape that surfaced in 2016.

Biden responded to Trump’s tweet with beleaguered sarcasm. “I see that you are on the job and presidential, as always,” Biden tweeted.

Biden addressed the president on Friday, April 5, at a speech for a crowd of electrical workers at a Washington hotel. “This country can’t afford more years of a president looking to settle personal scores,” Biden said in a speech to union workers. “This country can’t afford four more years of a president locked in the past.”

During the event, Biden also cracked a self-effacing joke that addressed his inappropriate touching scandal and showed that he was indeed “listening.”

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
