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.”

A new Gallup poll found a significant increase in the number of Americans who identify as LGBT since the last time it conducted a similar poll in 2017.

The poll found that 5.6% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. That's a large increase from the 2017 poll that had the number at 4.5%.

"More than half of LGBT adults (54.6%) identify as bisexual. About a quarter (24.5%) say they are gay, with 11.7% identifying as lesbian and 11.3% as transgender. An additional 3.3% volunteer another non-heterosexual preference or term to describe their sexual orientation, such as queer or same-gender-loving," the poll says.

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

I saw this poster today and I was going to just let it go, but then I kept feeling tugged to say something.

While this poster is great to bring attention to the issue of child trafficking, it is a "shocking" picture of a young girl tied up. It has that dark gritty feeling. I picture her in a basement tied to a dripping pipe.

While that sounds awful, it's important to know that trafficking children in the US is not all of that. I can't say it never is—I don't know. What I do know is most young trafficked children aren't sitting in a basement tied up. They have families, and someone—usually in their family—is trafficking them.

It's amazing to consider just how quickly the world has changed over the past 11 months. If you were to have told someone in February 2020 that the entire country would be on some form of lockdown, nearly everyone would be wearing a mask, and half a million people were going to die due to a virus, no one would have believed you.

Yet, here we are.

PPE masks were the last thing on Leah Holland of Georgetown, Kentucky's mind on March 4, 2020, when she got a tattoo inspired by the words of a close friend.
