Jeez, somebody tell him…please? Not only are the President’s comments on the findings released yesterday by New York state Attorney General Letitia James regarding NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s serial sexual harassment, including his call for Cuomo to resign, are embarrassing and inappropriate, they are also…hmmm, let’s see if I can cover them all…
- …the babbling of an Ethics Dunce and legal ignoramus who still doesn’t know what sexual harassment is, despite having engaged in it for decades as well as having been photographed while engaging in while Vice-President….
- …a blinding example of hypocrisy and ethics estoppel, since while it is true that Cuomo should resign, Biden, of all people, as a sexual harasser himself, is among the last people on Earth (along with Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein and a few others) who has any business saying so…
- …an Olympics-level achievement in ethics ignorance, as it not only pulls down gold medals in Ethics Duncery but also Unethical Quote of the Month, Incompetent Elected Official, Ethics Corrupter, and Jack Marshall Head Exploder (not to mention the blasts, perhaps fatal, also triggered in the craniums of Tara Reade, Lucy Flores, Amy Lappos, D.J. Hill, Caitlyn Caruso, Ally Call, Sofie Karasek, Vail Kohnert-Yount and others who experienced sexual harassment from Biden…
….in addition to the fact that it is an abuse of power and position for the President of the United States to inject himself into the matters of New York State, the justice system, and the fate of a duly elected official put in place by the citizens of New York.
I’ll leave the last for another day, but this Biden statement is beyond the pale:
“I’m sure there were some embraces that were totally innocent. But apparently, the attorney general decided there were things that weren’t.”
Idiot! Even after saying before being elected that he “got it” regarding sexual harassment, this proves that he not only doesn’t “get it” at all, he’s never read (or no longer can remember) any description of what sexual harassment is—he just does it. Since sexual harassment involves touching, words and conduct that the object finds unwelcome, the intent of the grabber/groper/ hugger/ feel-copper/kisser/sniffer/ flirt doesn’t matter. It is the conduct that matters, and how it is perceived, so if an embrace makes an employee feel violated, uncomfortable or conflicted, it doesn’t matter if it’s “innocent” from the point of view of the harasser.
Biden, like too many men with power and bad habits left over from the 1950’s, still doesn’t understand this, despite being a lawyer. By saying such a stupid, stupid thing, he has also misinformed millions of Americans who, God knows why, think the President of the United States knows what he’s talking about, doing far more harm than Andrew Cuomo.
I’ve posted this before reading any progressive pundits, left-wing lawyers and #MeToo warriors on Biden’s remarks. Do let me know if any of them show a millimicron of integrity and make the point I just made.
