Creepy Biden Provokes Bloomberg to Reconsider Run

Former Vice President Joe Biden has yet to formally declare his candidacy for president. But, in the wake of now two allegations against him for touching women inappropriately, Biden could potentially stay out of the 2020 race.   

If so, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who announced on March 5 that he wouldn’t seek the presidency, could change his mind and throw his hat in the ring. People, who have discussed the matter with Bloomberg, told Axios that if Biden decides not to run, he would most likely launch a 2020 bid. 

Bloomberg, 77, joined the Democratic Party last year in opposition of President Trump. He’s estimated to be worth $58 billion and “could spend unlimited amounts to argue that no one in the race had done more to promote action on climate and guns,” according to Axios 

Because the race looked like “a bloody fight for the same slice of voters” Bloomberg backed out. “He’s a data guy,” sources told the publication. “He couldn’t get the math to work.”  

If Bloomberg sees a clear path for a centrist candidate, which is now occupied by Biden, the sources said, he’ll give it a go.  

The allegations against Biden are clearly a setback. He says his touchy-feely behavior is only “expressions of affection, support and comfort,” but it’s coming off as “creepy” to some.  

Lucy Flores and Amy Lappos  

Last week, Lucy Flores, former Nevada state assemblywoman, accused Biden of inappropriate touching and kissing her during a campaign event in 2014, when she was running for lieutenant governor.

Biden said, in a statement, on Sunday, “In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately.”  

He continued, “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.”   

On Monday, a second woman, Amy Lappos, also came forward to accuse Biden of touching her inappropriately at a fundraiser in 2009 in Greenwich, Conn.   

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”  

Lappos said, in a statement, that she’s disappointed in the way the Democratic Party has treated Flores:  

“I am speaking out today because I am so disappointed in my party, the Democratic Party, and the way we have treated Lucy Flores. Biden’s statement in response to Lucy’s article was not only disturbing it was disgusting. I stand by Lucy and any woman with the courage to come forward regarding inappropriate behavior by men.”

  1. So what do these 2 woman say about the DISGUISTING PUSSY Grabbing President they have never said anything negative and TRUMP has done a lot more damage than BIDEN has done and I don’t believe either one of these Women but what caught my attention is that Lucy Flores said I am coming out now because Joe Biden is going to run for President…Why did she not come out 5 Years ago when this happened and the other Woman said that there were no WITNESSES and people who know Biden said that this was not like Joe Biden

  2. White women should give it a break. While I understand rape & sexual harassment and am adamantly in support of women, you guys are just taking your white women privilege just “OFF THE DAMN CHART”. Wonder what you would do living in this country as black or brown women who REALLY have had to experience sexual harassment and rape for eons -They know the difference. Get me right, I am 100% in support of women who REALLY have experienced being sexually harassed but what these two women allege Biden did is NOT sexual harassment!!! If a man is making you feel uncomfortable in the described way, OPEN YOUR PRIVILEGED MOUTHS AND SPEAK!!!

  3. Why wait years to destroy a person. Why didn’t they say something if they thought it was wrong when it happened. You women need to go somewhere and sit on it. Hey Joe you got my vote. What’s a hug or a kiss on the head. He didn’t grope or is that the problem.

    The presidential race is ours to lose, as it was last time but we’ve got to quit beating each other up, nominate a candidate with nationwide appeal and all get behind her or him.

  5. The Me too movement is going against the party that started it!
