Former Vice President said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.
Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former Vice President previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.
The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.
“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”
A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.
Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”
“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”

I believe he is getting senile. Another word is dementia and there are many kinds. I don't think anyone would deliberately put on that kind of act. I feel rather sorry for him. He doesn't know when to quit.
Is Joe really getting senile or is it an act?
I heard he slaps his monkey around on a regular basis!
A Trump Biden debate would be nothing more than elderly abuse, I really hope for Joe's sake they pick someone other than him, it would be embarrassing, and hard to watch, some people do have great grandpas.
Im believeing, more & more, Biden is gradually loseiing his Marbles - -
I foresee Joe Biden playing Santa for the holidays in the near future. Only he will behave like Billy Bob Thornton's Santa in "Bad Santa"!
Is this what the Lying Communist democrats (LCD's) always refer to as "A Dog Whistle"? Every statement a Repub makes is always "A Dog Whistle". Keep punching, Joe

Just keep punching, Joe.
Sort of reminds me of the old joke: what do you say to a woman with two black eyes? Nothing - you done told her twice.
Yes, all of that is true. I'm not saying there is any excuse for what they have done. Joe Biden needs to go away and live the rest of his life quietly.
