Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is mired in another scandal as a video emerges of him admitting he was arrested. A 2008 CNN newsclip has unearthed showing Biden, then Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s running mate, telling a group in Ohio that he was “arrested” for mistakenly following a “a lovely group of women into an all-female dormitory,” according to CNN host Wolf Blitzer.
It was reported that incident occurred as Creepy Joe was attending a college football game at his alma mater, the University of Delaware, more than forty years ago. Biden was stopped by an officer who told him that “men were not allowed inside (the dormitory).” Biden joked that “it was only a temporary detention,” according to the CNN broadcast.

In October of 2008, a couple of weeks before Barack Obama’s first election, CBS News’ Ryan Corsaro also recorded Biden admitting this transgression.
Corsaro wrote that the former Vice President also said, “And uh, without knowing it, I shouldn’t admit this on national television because it’ll reveal that I’m over 60, but I thought that we were gonna go get something to eat.”
Biden on the Ropes
It has been a whirlwind few months for Biden as he prepares for the August Democratic National Convention, which many speculate that he will be crowned Democratic nominee for U.S. President to go head-to-head against President Donald Trump.
Besides Biden feeling heat because of the Biden-Ukraine scandal, former Biden staffer, Tara Reade, accused him of sexually assaulting her on Capitol Hill in the early 1990s while he was a Senator in Delaware. She claimed that the former Vice President threw her against the wall and then kissed her while penetrating her with his fingers without her consent.
The recent 2008 CNN video on Creepy Joe and Reade’s allegation depicts the hypocrisy of Biden and the Democrats in regards to their support of the #MeToo movement. In a November of 2019 Democratic Presidential debate, Biden spoke about sexual misconduct. He spoke on the original Violence Against Women Act, which he helped author.
Creepy Joe said, “The fact is that what happens now, is that we have to fundamentally change the culture, the culture of how women are treated.”
He also stated to “keep punching at it (domestic violence).”

Instead of complaining about the culture, Biden should worry about his own unruliness with women. While feminist Democrats, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, have jumped to Biden’s defense on the Reade allegations, it is doubtful that Creepy Joe would be a president that would keep ‘punching at violence’ against women.
