Joe Biden Just Showed Donald Trump How To Act As A President

Biden is now amending past mistakes – just in time. Long ago, before he was the Vice President of the United States – when the world made just a little bit more sense than it does now – he was a senator representing the state of Delaware and chair of the Judiciary Committee.

In 1991, a woman named Anita Hill was working under then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas¬†at the Department of Education when she testified for his confirmation hearing and alleged that he sexually harassed her. Hill, an African American woman, faced harsh criticism from, particularly the committee Republicans, on the all, white, male committee. Following Thomas’ hearing, Biden campaigned for two female senators with the agreement that upon their election they would join the Judiciary Committee so that both genders would be represented, but over the years, Biden has been called out for not doing more to defend Hill and quell the criticism she faced during the hearing.

For the second time this month, Biden addressed the incident from more than 25 years ago. While speaking to Teen Vogue, Biden said that he believes Hill’s accusations and owes her an apology.

“My one regret is that I wasn’t able to tone down the attacks on her by some of my Republican friends,” said Biden. “I mean, they really went after her. As much as I tried to intervene, I did not have the power to gavel them out of order.”

In this new world of #MeToo, bringing abusers to justice and finally believing women when we talk about our experiences with sexual harassment and sexual assault, Biden is reclaiming the narrative surrounding the 25-year-old incident and taking it off the table of discussion for any future opponents. Maybe political opponents. Maybe even future presidential race opponents.
