Cuomo’s Resignation Highlights Lingering Questions About Biden’s History of Misconduct

After months of investigations, cringe-worthy press conferences, and one very strange video showing him hugging and kissing various individuals, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has finally resigned over allegations of sexual harassment. As the evidence piled up against Cuomo, numerous leaders within the Democratic Party repeatedly called on the three-term governor to step down. But while Cuomo may be on his way out, his treatment by the media throughout his ordeal and subsequent resignation has underscored how similar accusations of “unwanted touching” against another powerful Democrat politician in the past did not receive nearly as much scrutiny – President Joe Biden.

Cuomo has denied harassment allegations since they first surfaced earlier this year, saying as recently as last week, “I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances.” After initially defending Cuomo, saying that he was “sure” some of Cuomo’s embraces were “totally innocent,” Biden later told the media that “I think he should resign” following the release of an investigation that found Cuomo had engaged in unwanted groping, kissing, and hugging, as well as making inappropriate comments to multiple women.

But even as Biden attempts to distance himself from his old friend Andrew Cuomo, critics have pointed out the apparent inconsistency in the media and Democratic establishment’s treatment of accusations against Cuomo and Biden. During the 2020 campaign, Biden saw his own share of accusers come forward, many of whom have since called for a similar investigation into Biden’s conduct, to no avail.

The most serious allegation against Biden came from one of his former Senate aides, Tara Reade, who last year alleged that Biden sexually harassed and assaulted her when she worked for him in 1993. The most disturbing incident that Reade described was an instance where Biden allegedly pressed Reade against a wall inside the Capitol and reached under her skirt, touching her inappropriately.

The accusations don’t stop there for Biden, however. More than half a dozen other women have also described unwanted invasions of personal space by the President, both during his time as a Senator and as Vice President under Barack Obama.

In 2019, for example, Vail Kohnert-Yount, a former White House intern, told the Washington Post that in 2013 Biden “put his hand on the back of my head and pressed his forehead to my forehead” and called her a “pretty girl,” something that made Kohnert-Yount understandably uncomfortable.

Apparently, Biden has a particular affinity for pressing his forehead to the foreheads of others. Shortly before Biden announced he would run for President, another woman, Sofia Karasek, published an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for Biden to “take ownership for his actions” after a photo surfaced from the 2016 Academy Awards showing Biden touching foreheads with her. A third woman, Amy Stokes Lappos, has also alleged that Biden “put his hands behind my head and pulled me close and I thought, ‘he’s going to kiss me,’” at a fundraiser in 2009. Another photo from Obama’s 2012 campaign shows the then-Vice President engaging in the same forehead-touching activity with an unnamed young girl.

Biden has also raised eyebrows due to his uncomfortable interactions with children. During his 2020 campaign, for example, Biden told a 10-year-old girl “I bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.” A few weeks later he also told the brothers of a 13-year-old girl that they must “keep the guys away from your sister.”

Although Biden released a two-minute video during the 2020 campaign addressing the allegations against him throughout the years, many deemed it a “non-apology apology.” In interviews, Biden appeared to make light of the situation, repeatedly joking about it and saying that he is “not sorry for any of my intentions” – leading some to speculate whether Biden thinks that he should be sorry for his actions, if not his intentions.

After initially applauding the bravery of Biden’s accusers in coming forward to tell their stories during last year’s presidential campaign, mainstream media and the Democratic establishment quickly went silent on the issue once Biden became the nominee.

Even Kamala Harris, a self-avowed champion of sexual harassment victims (conservatives will remember with disdain her harsh and unfair treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing) has tried to rewrite history on her criticism of Joe Biden. Before dropping out of the 2020 race herself, Harris said of Biden’s accusers that “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.” But once Biden tapped Harris to be his running mate, Harris said that “the Joe Biden I know is somebody who really has fought for women and empowerment of women.” In other words, Harris believed Biden’s accusers until it was politically expedient not to.

Thus far, the White House has done its best to separate allegations against Andrew Cuomo from those against President Biden. At a press conference last week, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said that accusations against Biden were “heavily litigated during the campaign.”

Ultimately, it’s unlikely that the President will face any sort of investigation. However, Republicans have pointed out that Democrats’ willingness to force Cuomo out of office while also overlooking allegations against Biden highlights the insincerity with which liberals claim to “believe all women” while also accusing Republicans of protecting perpetrators of sexual harassment.

While the downfall of Andrew Cuomo likely won’t change Democrats’ duplicitous behavior when it comes to addressing sexual misconduct, the contrast between their treatment of Cuomo and Biden may lead some Americans to question the integrity of other liberal claims heading into next year’s elections – something that could further spell disaster for Democrats’ chances.

Joey Biden is the man inside a bubble. Protected all ways from everything. These dots will not be connected between the Pisiano Poney and the Delaware Dementia Victim. At least Cuomo apparently went after mature women. Joey is another major issue. He has to be protected. Princess Spread Eagle is next in line.

Cuomo had too many skeletons in his closet and became expendable. He was on a lower rung. Loopy Joe thinks he is president and is protected by the demo/globalist party no matter what he did or does. Eventually Loopy will also become expendable and he will be gone and replaced by someone wicked, evil, & satanic who will finish the job of getting America into the one-world government. The demo/socialists have no morals, integrity, self-respect, or honesty. They will do anything it takes to establish their agenda. In other words, continue what they are doing; lying, cheating, & likely killing a few people along the way. It has become obvious that the supreme court and the GOP are minor speed bumps on the socialist path to victory.

You nailed it about the Republicans. They have their heads in the sand while our country becomes part of the Great Reset of socialism. All too many Republicans in congress now are drifting left and agree with the demo/globalists.

We have a CORRUPT, Biden family, I know it, you know it, the Demonrats know, HELL everybody knows it, but, no one will do anything about it, and the news media are tickled to death and the college PROF’s are happy, and the Demonrats are happy, because they are seeing America being destroyed and the Republicans are weak and frail and have no power to stop them, in fact about a dozen RINO’s are aiding and abiding.
If you told me this was America fate 40 years ago I would said you were nuts, but with the election of Obama, I am surprised its taken this long

What galls me about two-faced dimrats (among countless other items) is their UNBELIEVABLE hypocrisy and refusal to own one sin they commit. Everything the whining left complained about and did to DJT is what they’ve routinely done for years. The only good part about their backstabbing is that they expose themselves as the lying, immoral cheats that they are. I have faith their whole wicked participants are going to burn in hell when their day is due.

O’Biden’s behavior is just another piece of garbage on top of the despicable heap of lies promoted by the Marxist Democrat. He got by with that disgusting behavior for years and everyone knows it. The leftist media will never, ever press Uncle Joe with the information because they are simply cheerleaders and not investigative reporters. Like all of his other failures, the lame stream media simply turn a blind eye to anything negative about this inept president. I wonder if he takes daily showers to rinse the slime off of his old carcass.

Teddy Kennedy, Ed Buck, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, Andrew Cuomo, Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Senile Joe.
All feel it OK to do what they want to women, men (Buck), and young girls because that’s their “heritage.” After all, who wouldn’t want to be molested by these “sophisticated” guys? The Senile One felt up a little girl just the other day.

Cuomo was just a sacrificial pawn in the grand game of political chess. Biden is the King and he is untouchable – whether we like it or not. In the meantime, Democrats can point to Cuomo and say that they were going after their own. They are ready to throw Bill Clinton under the bus and acknowledge that he was bad to women only many years after he was out of office – he outlived his usefulness.

To be clear, Republicans, including the latest Trump administration, operated under the same principles. Trump was ready to throw anybody under the bus the minute the said person outlived his or her usefulness to him.

Politics is a freak show. It is nice to be an observer but not directly engaged. Cheers!

Power and money corrupt. Biden should never been allowed to be president. He is slime and so is his son who is helping Joe be corrupt. The fact that Biden was all over women should never be ignored. The press helps these men get away with everything

Jumping Joe will stay as president and will win re-election thanks to the B.S. media. After his term, we will get Kamala Harris for the next eight years. Can’t beat those demoRats. As bad as they are, the “Democrat, No Matter What” voters just love them. Isn’t that right Bill and Hillary?

Biden still can’t help himself, during the ceremony to “honor” the actions of the Capitol Police during the 6 January “riot”, he had a very young lady come sit on his lap so he could sniff her. Nothing was said about it by the MSM though, naturally.

I’ve waited a full day to even read this article because I had little doubt where it was heading…
For starters Andrew Cuomo is & has always been a ” sleazebag “… Now that his fellow hypocritical peers, i.e. Democrats have successfully got him REMOVED from office, time to move on, I seriously doubt he will face criminal charges over his sexual advances on women…Will he ever be held accountable for all the nursing home deaths he caused? I would call this manslaughter at a minimum…
I seriously doubt it…
Now onto the actual premise of this article, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr…JRB, he too is a ” sleazebag ” but Joe enjoys the pedophile aspect to his perversions as well & he commits it for all to see on a regular basis or to put it another way, every opportunity he gets… Could there be any truth in an old saying that says ” incest is best? ” You see, Joe feels it is okay for his son Hunter to sexually molest his niece of 14 years of age at the time, only to have her mother confront Joe about Hunter’s behavior with her daughter & only to respond back to her, ” you need therapy… ”
JRB is what 81 million people voted into office in the most secure election in US history… And with that, I rest my case…
Bill on the Hill… :~)

the democrats own THE MEDIA, all of it, even Fox has to be careful. We are being censored right now in our homes, in our cars, in grocery stores and in our Churches.
My single adult daughter and I were in her car talking about her uneventful life, when the radio asked “are you lonely?” We looked at each other and she quickly turned off the radio. Did it stop the surveillance? We didn’t know and stopped talking for the rest of the trip.

Andrew Cuomo took the least of the crimes against him, namely the nursing home deaths. In which he should have been indicted by a grand jury. Cuomo has learned much from his Father Mario, and he practices it well. Dirty Joe can do it to children, and it’s acceptable to the depraved politicians and vermin of the Media. Remember, God is watching these demons and will act in his time.
