Former second lady Jill Biden appeared on The Daily Show and promised and end to her husband Joe’s inappropriate behavior. Additionally she praised the women who had the “courage” to file complains against the former vice president.
“It took a lot of courage for women to step forward and say, you know, ‘You’re in my space. Joe heard that. And it just won’t happen again,” she said to The Daily Show host Trevor Noah. “He heard what they were saying.”
Lucy Flores, the former Democratic Nevada Assemblywoman, was the first of the women to step forward and accuse Biden of inappropriate behavior. Later on she did admit that politics was the “impetus” that drove her to go public with the allegations.
She also discussed the process that led to the 76-year-old long-time senator and former VP deciding to launch a bid for presidency for a third time.
“And we weren’t going to run, but then we kept hearing this,” the former second lady said. “And so we started to think about it and then we called our family together, we spoke to our children, we got our grandchildren all together. And we said, what do you think? Do you think Pop should run for president? And to a grandchild they said Pop has to run.”
Just earlier this week Joe Biden was again in hot water when he commented on the looks of a 10-year-old girl.
“I’m going to write you a longer answer and tell you the exact things I would do, okay? Promise,” Biden said. “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking. What your favorite subject?”
Despite his alleged creepiness, Joe Biden is widely viewed as the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.
