Also….Having Abrams, a Black Women stop forward for Biden is going to help the prospective 2020 Democratic nomination candidate….
Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams on Thursday stood by Joe Biden amid mounting allegations that he inappropriately touched women while serving as vice president, saying Americans should expect their leaders to be accountable but not perfect.
Abrams, a former Georgia state lawmaker who narrowly lost her bid for governor in November, suggested during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that she believes that Biden’s statement Wednesday acknowledging he “made a mistake” was sufficient.
“I am friends with Lucy Flores and I appreciate her bringing her story forward,” Abrams said, referring to the former Nevada assembly member who alleges Biden smelled her hair and kissed the back of her head without consent in 2014. “I also have deep respect for Vice President Joe Biden.”
She continued: “We cannot have perfection as a litmus test. The responsibility of leaders is to not be perfect but to be accountable, to say I’ve made a mistake, I understand it and here’s what I’m going to do to reform as I move forward. And I think we see Joe Biden doing that.”
Abrams noted that Biden, who is expected to announce a 2020 presidential run, acknowledged the “discomfort” he has caused some women and “affirmed that he will do something different” in the future…..
It appears that Biden’s handlers have handled this correctly by NOT having their guy get into a back and forth on this…
The heavy lifting seems to be coming from others….
Make no mistake?
Biden owes Donald Trump some for lowering the standards for politicians …
He also owes Gillibrand some for forcing Al Franken out and having Democrats and other realize that it was a dumb thing to do….
Republican’s have simply stood by on the sidelines and watched Democrats ‘eat their own’ up to this point….
Oh, we do remember the rumor about a Biden/Abrams 2020 Presidential ticket?
