Joe Biden is always good for a gaffe or two but this one is pretty awful. Biden was on the Today Show with Craig Melvin when he was asked how he would advise the Senate on how to handle the hearing with the Kavanaugh accuser. His reply is a head scratcher…At about the 3:20 point in the interview it goes off the rails…

Craig Melvin said he believes Joe Biden understands sexual assault victims now better than back in ’91. The answer Biden gives makes Melvin raise his eyebrows but he comes back with nothing in reply…

 “Well, I think I got it in ’91. It’s important that people understand, and I think people do now, understand how hard it is to come forward. And I always say to men, they say why is it so hard? How about if you had been abused? You see the movie Deliverance, how about if you were the guy strapped to the tree, would you come forward? Would you want to relive that?”

There was NO rape in the Kavanaugh accuser’s claim…There is no comparison at all to what is alleged!

Biden began by saying, “Anita Hill was vilified when she came forward by a lot of my colleagues, character assassination. I wish I could have done more to prevent those questions and the way they asked them. I hope my colleagues learn from that…”

Biden continued, “the woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be, you know, abused again by the system.”

Biden admitted that his mind was made up before the hearing even started… “And I believed her when she came forward, I encouraged her to come forward, we were in a position where we got the FBI to do an investigation, and I voted against Clarence Thomas.

At this point in the interview Melvin made the assessment that it seems like Biden gets it now versus in ’91.

 “Well, I think I got it in ’91. It’s important that people understand, and I think people do now, understand how hard it is to come forward. And I always say to men, they say why is it so hard? How about if you had been abused? You see the movie Deliverance, how about if you were the guy strapped to the tree, would you come forward? Would you want to relive that?”

Biden was referencing a graphic gay rape scene from the 1972 film.

Biden continued…“I’m serious, I’m deadly earnest.”

You can always count on Biden for something like this…Crazy Uncle Joe!
