Biden Team Blames ‘Right Wing Trolls’ For Creepy Joe Photos

Molly Prince on April 1, 2019

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s team pushed back on allegations of sexual misconduct on Monday by blaming “right wing trolls” for circulating out-of-context photographs.

“These smears and forgeries have existed in the dark recesses of the internet for a while,” Bill Russo, a Biden spokesman, said in a statement. “And to this day, right wing trolls and others continue to exploit them.”

Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores came out with her allegations against the prospective presidential candidate Friday in the New York Magazine op-ed “An Awkward Kiss Changed How I Saw Joe Biden.” She claimed Biden, who was campaigning on her behalf at the time, kissed her and smelled her hairwithout consent.

“I felt him get closer to me from behind. … He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused,” Flores wrote.

“There is a Spanish saying, ‘tragame tierra,’ it means, ‘earth, swallow me whole.’ I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything,” she continued. “I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”

Biden immediately issued the following statement:

Neither then, nor in the years since, did he or the staff with him at the time have an inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable, nor do they recall what she describes. But Vice President Biden believes that Ms. Flores has every right to share her own recollection and reflections, and that it is a change for better in our society that she has the opportunity to do so. He respects Ms. Flores as a strong and independent voice in our politics and wishes her only the best.

Flores revealed two days later that “politics was definitely the impetus” for coming forward with her accusation, noting that “the reason why we’re having these conversations about Vice President Joe Biden is because he’s considering running for president.”

While Biden has not formally revealed if he will run for president, he has been polling as the top contender for the Democratic nomination, and is expected to announce his bid in April.

  • In the tweet from Hunter Walker, in the small print, they are claiming some are photoshopped. ".....the use of photoshopped images and other manipulations of social media."

  • Sad to see a man that feels he has to touch, feel, and grope women! But to always touching little kids, pulling them back against him, and rubbing all over a small girls face and neck and shoulders is a disgusting display of a pedophilia. Kisses on them is inappropriate, there is a small show of affection, then there is to much touchy, feely, groping. Sick, needs more help for his condition!

  • They found Trump guilty with no evidence! COME ON JOE!! THEY ALL CAN'T BE FAKE!!! FORMER SECRET SERVICE PEOPLE SAY YOU'RE AN OCTOPUS!!!!!!

  • Come on this is so far past ridiculous. Joe and his smelling, touching, hugging, kissing women and children have been in the media for many years on a regular basis. It's Not New, now a few politicians are attacking and acting like they have been blind for 30 years.

  • This came from someone within his circle. Joe has had a child pedi problem for a long time. His roommates in college even stated he was very open about it, even said every time they would go out he "had to drain the dragon" because he knew he would not control himself. His family does not even allow him near the kids of the family. They have known, and accepted his disorder for years. He had a brain tumor years ago, the doctor was hoping it would stop the child pedi when removed but it did not. There is a pic of him, it is a black and white photo. if you see it ..it is him after surgery in a small room with a little girl. that is how they tested him that is what the photo was from. That does not have to say, he touches way too many adult women also. The female staff could not stand him walking around the WH at night naked, swimming naked etc. He was so bad at so many WH parties that they even had to cancel one of the WH Christmas parties due to his behavior.. he will be put in jail for this..it is very bad.

  • I think it’s Trumps fault. I am surprised they aren’t claiming the pictures are photoshopped
