Former Vice President Joe Biden has been making headlines lately for all of the wrong reasons.
When he’s not praising racist Democratic Senators who supported segregation, the former VP has been accused by several women of touching them inappropriately without their consent.
But things took a shocking turn this week when he told millions of Americans when he believes it’s “acceptable” for a man to hit a woman.
During Wednesday night’s presidential debate on MSNBC, Biden said it was okay to hit a woman as long as it was in “self-defense.”
He also said America needs to be “punching back” to combat violence against women.
The exchange began when an MSNBC moderator asked Biden: “Vice President Biden, the #MeToo movement has forced a cultural reckoning around the issue of sexual violence and harassment against women in America. Are there specific actions that you would take early in your administration to address this problem?”
Biden’s response was downright shocking, and the room went silent after hearing what he had said.
“Yes, and by the way, it’s one of the reasons the first thing I would do is make sure we pass the Violence Against Women Act re-authorization,” Biden responded.
“The fact is, what happens now is we in fact have to fundamentally change the culture, the culture of how women are treated. That’s why as Vice President, I asked the president if I could start the movement on the college campuses to say it’s on us, it’s everyone’s responsibility,” he added.
“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense,” Biden said, adding, “and that rarely ever occurs.”
Continuing to stick his foot in his mouth, Biden went on to argue that culture must change, adding, “we have to keep punching at it, and punching at it, and punching at it.”

Think about how oblivious one has to be to use the phrase “punching at it” while discussing domestic violence.
Then consider that Biden also suggested on national television in front of millions of viewers that it’s acceptable to hit a woman as long as it was in self-defense.
As shocking as his comments were, they are par for the course.
This is the same guy who a few weeks ago was caught on camera grabbing the arm of a young conservative reporter for asking him a question he didn’t like.
When he’s not suggesting a “shooting war” with the GOP or threatening President Trump with violence, Biden has been accused by at least four women in recent months of inappropriately touching them without their consent.
One woman said Biden sniffed her hair and wouldn’t back away from her face.
Another said Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she tried to squirm in her seat to signal that she was uncomfortable.
Biden’s behavior is so bad that even the mainstream media criticized him after he disgustingly had his hands all over a 10-year-old girl during a campaign stop.
Despite all of this, Biden is still the Democratic frontrunner and darling of the Left.
