Sexual assault allegations against Biden should be handled like those against Trump

Gardiner Vose

As November approaches this election year, I continue to follow the Democratic Primaries and debates, and I am shocked by the incompetence shown by the Democratic candidates. 

Since the beginning of the election cycle, the two front runners, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, have astonished me by some of the things they have said in debates, rallies and other events. Joe Biden, who will be the Democratic candidate running against Trump this year, is especially gifted in saying things that are completely insane and make me question whether he is mentally capable of doing anything, let alone run a country. 

I understand that Biden is older and that some of the things that he says may be excused by his age, but a person who seems to not know where he is or what he is talking about at times should not be allowed to represent a major political party, let alone even have a chance at one of the most powerful positions in the world. 

During one of Biden’s speeches he said, “I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun, and the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down and watch the hair come back up again. They’d look at it. So I’ve learned about roaches, and I learned about kids jumping on my lap, and I love kids jumping on my lap.”

Although I am sure that Biden must have been confused about what he was supposed to be talking about during this speech, there is no doubt that this is a creepy dialogue and shows his level of incompetence. It seems as though he is not even lucid and unable to form functional sentences in order to respond to basic questions. This theme has continued into many of his debates where sometimes I am not sure if he is even on the same planet as the rest of the people in the room.

Furthermore, Biden has recently been accused of a number of sexual assault charges from women in the past which he denies. These eight allegations have not been heavily reported on by the media as elections come closer because left wing news sources are trying to make Biden look as presentable as possible, as hard as it may be, in their last ditch effort to remove Donald Trump from office. This kind of bias is insulting to the women who are making the allegations as they are not being heard or reported by media outlets, and Biden’s past with these women is not being addressed.

When Donald Trump faced sexual assault allegations, the media wasted no time in making sure the whole country knew about it, which may have been the right thing to do, but only if this was the standard for reporting stories such as this. Biden, however, is already such a weak candidate that it seems leftist news sources have decided he cannot afford the added negative publicity or else his entire campaign could be a loss.

If we were to strip away all of the party affiliations that cause peoples’ preexisting feelings towards today’s candidates, I believe that many people, Democrat or Republican, would agree that Biden does not act like a functioning adult and surely shouldn’t be trusted with any kind of power, especially not the presidency.

I believe that Biden was chosen as a candidate because he was vice-president to Obama, and the Democratic Party is trying to draw support from Obama voters. At some time in the past, Biden may have been deserving of a party nomination, but as of now, it seems as though the Democrats have chosen a very senile man as their frontrunning candidate as they grow more desperate to remove President Trump from office.

I understand that it is important for each party to try to get their candidates into office, but there comes a point where, for the good of the American people and the country, we need to come together to agree that this man cannot be elected president. I understand that Trump may not be the most fitting candidate either, but if I have to choose the lesser of the two evils, I’d like to at least elect a person that knows what planet they are on.
