Why stop at being am ordinary crotchety “get off my lawn” type when Joe Biden can go for broke and let loose his inner Grandpa Simpson.
If Trump spoke to a young woman this way, feminists would be marching in stupid pink hats by tomorrow. But Biden will get a pass over it.
So here’s what happened.
At a rally event in New Hampshire, some small-statured, college-aged young woman identified herself as a student and nervously asked Joe a pretty intelligent question.
She noted that Biden, who was not compelled to park himself in a chair in the Senate chamber through the impeachment process should have had a natural advantage going into Iowa, but somehow, wasn’t able to leverage that into a strong showing of delegate support.
Fair question, right? It must be. Joe called it a “good question.”
And then he went on insult the woman with one of his hokey Corn-Pop-era insults, calling the woman a “lying dog-faced pony soldier.” Can anyone tell us what that is, by the way? Anyway, watch:
The only thing missing was a threat to take her behind the gym for an ass whupping or challenging her to a push-up contest… which he might still have done had she been a guy.
The media jumped right in, explaining that the former vice president was “only kidding,” and using a John Wayne line that he’s used before.
This is the same “honest” media that took Mitt Romney’s reference in 2012 to having access to extensive “binders full of women” as proof positive that he was a sexist and clubbed him for the rest of his run with that out-of-context quote.
To say nothing about what they’ve thrown at Trump, since then.
Will at least some of the liberal press turn on Biden and let him have it? Of course not. At least, not until the consensus is that he is expendable. Then they’ll turn on him the way they eventually turned on Bill Clinton for #MeToo issues … but not until after 2016 shut the door on their political futures.
