Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) vehemently defended Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

That is, until one pertinent question caused him to quickly back off.

It’s pretty hard to defend a 35-year-old accusation, isn’t it?

Trending: WATCH: Warren Blatantly Lies About Parents Eloping Because Mom Was Indian

From Daily Caller:

Former Vice President Joe Biden emphatically supported Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Monday night, faltering only when a reporter asked him about the credibility of a claim made over 35 years ago.

“What I’m going to do is I’m not going to answer any more questions,” Biden said, deflecting a reporter’s question asking whether it was significant that the assault claim refers to an incident that allegedly occurred when Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was 17 years old.

“I’d be happy to talk about Ireland,” Biden added during his remarks to a group of reporters at Irish ambassador to the U.S. Dan Mulhall’s residence.

Biden delivered a glowing endorsement Monday night of women who come forward with accusations of assault. “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time,” Biden said, adding that “[coming forward] is like jumping into a cauldron.”

During a recent speech in Washington DC, Biden referred to Trump supporters as “dregs of society.”

From Daily Mail:

Former Vice President Joe Biden is asking for God’s forgiveness for not speaking up against President Donald Trump sooner as his wife Jill reassured the audience at a posh human rights fundraising dinner the couple wants to ‘pick a fight’ against bullies.

‘Barack and I agreed to remain silent for a while to give this administration the chance to get up and running in the first year,’ Biden told the crowd at the Human Rights Campaign annual fundraising gala in Washington D.C. on Saturday night.

Barack and Biden were silent up until now?

Is anyone buying that, Joe?

‘God forgive me,’ he added, making the sign of the cross as the audience roared with laughter and applause.

Then, the insult.

One person on Twitter described Joe’s words as going “way beyond” Hillary’s “deplorables” line from 2016.

WATCH:

Donald Trump Jr. weighed in:

The last time Biden spoke to this dinner was three years ago – in 2015 – as he was contemplating entering the 2016 presidential contest. He ultimately held back in the wake of his son Beau’s death.

But Beau featured heavily in his remarks to the crowd, as he weighs a challenge to Trump in 2020. He thanked the group for honoring Beau for his work as attorney general as Delaware.

And his wife Jill Biden, who introduced, talked of how the couple wants to take on bullies.

Biden 2020? From Fox News:

Former Vice President Joe Biden, mulling a possible 2020 presidential run, ripped into the Trump administration’s immigration policies on Friday — calling them “one of the darkest moments in our history” at a rally held by a Latino civil rights organization.

Biden made his fiery remarks in Phoenix, Arizona, at an event for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). He specifically targeted the Justice Department’s “zero tolerance” policy on prosecuting all illegal border crossers.

“Grotesque lies, lies about immigrants, about crime, about costs to the community,” said Biden. “This administration’s policies that literally rip babies from the arms of their mothers and fathers — it’s one of the darkest moments in our history.”

Continued:

The “zero tolerance” policy, in turn, led to an increase in the number of children separated from their parents until Trump signed an executive order ending the practice.

“Not only is it a national shame, it tarnishes the very idea of America and diminishes our standing in the world,” Biden said.

Trump officials immediately fired back. Trump aide and former secret service agent Dan Bongino noted that Trump had stopped the separation of families and that similar separations had occurred under the Obama administration.

Back to the drawing board, Joe.
