I sniff my little boy's hair sometimes (e.g. after a bath), and I can guarantee that it isn't a sexual thing. Yes, maybe Biden does have a problem with respecting physical boundaries but that still doesn't mean that it's sexual in nature (when I first moved here, I found the kiss-kiss-kiss on the cheek thing to be rather uncomfortable). Some people are simply more affectionate than others, and it often comes down to a matter of perception. For example, if Johnny Depp leaned over and sniffed my hair and kissed me on the head, I'd most likely love it (and probably start humping his leg ) but if someone that I didn't like did that to me, then I would perceive it as being creepy and inappropriate.
The fact is, there has clearly been a smear campaign initiated against Biden, much of which completely exaggerates his behavior, because Trump and his supporters are using that to try to get Trump re-elected. Trump is married to a woman who has posed nude and has breast implants, has proudly mingled with Playboy bunnies at the Playboy mansion, talks about grabbing women by the p***ies, treated women on his reality show as though they were sex objects, etc. and yet BIDEN is the pervert?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I don't know what kind of country it is, where a guy (and his organisation) which openly says "grab her by the pussy" accussed another candidate of doing much lesser evil, and isn't completely called out for that.

No, but if I had a friend's baby in my lap, I might. I might kiss them on the head, too. I'm just the type of person who adores little kids.
Joe Biden might be a very affectionate person, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's sexual in nature. I actually feel sorry for men whose intentions are pure but have to be so careful with every move they make because it could easily be blown out of proportion -- particularly in a day and age where so many people are using things just to get attention. If Joe Biden had touched me on the shoulders years ago, I would have the choice of just blowing it off (even if it did make me uncomfortable) or turning it into a big deal in the media in order to either try to hurt him and/or get some attention for myself. That woman obviously chose the latter.

But it's not just babies and little kids, it's teenagers and grown women too.

He's just obsessed with sniffing women's hair.

The Republicans are excellent at taking a perfectly normal situation and turning it into a scandal. Unless you have proof that Biden has done something illegal, you are only a despicable clog in the wheel of an immoral smear campaign.

I never said it was illegal, I said it was creepy to sniff people's hair.

It doesn't matter because the goal of your statement is to make Biden look bad even though you know nothing of context or situation behind the photo or whatever you're basing your statement on.

Trump has done far more despicable things and there's plenty of evidence to prove it.

Provide me evidence that what Biden has done is truly creepy and I'll consider your statement. Otherwise, it's just hearsay, gossip and ultimately libel.

I based it mostly on this Trevor Noah video which includes two allegations of him acting inappropriately.

Thanks for citing your source.

The women said it was not sexual harrassment just uncomfortable space invasion and Trevor may regret giving this topic that much public attention in 2019. Trevor really beefed up the content to make his show funny (which wasn't really) and also aired an apology from Biden if his gestures had made anyone uncomfortable.

Question the source before believing the content, FC.

The point I was making is that you can't condone someone being married to a nude model, who has sex with porn stars and says things like "grab women by the p***ies" etc. while also trying to accuse someone else of being a pervert simply for rubbing someone's shoulders or (apparently) sniffing someone's hair. It's hypocrisy for someone to accuse Biden of being a pervert for those things while simultaneously completely ignoring or condoning the behavior of Trump.

Yes they are. And so are the democrats. Quite acting like they are better because they are not. Russia anyone? Any actual proof after hundreds of lawyers and even more hundreds of millions and millions and millions of dollars? I am not defending republicans because I agree that for the most part they are scumbags. Democrats too, are scumbags. But at least I'm not a hypocrite about it, like most, but not all of you.

So much more egregious than pussy-grabbing.

On other topics, how does selfless Trump's public service record stack up against that awful Biden's? You know, the one who went 8 years as Vice-President and 36 years straight as a Senator before that, and who was the second-poorest member of the Senate for most of that time (he only started making real money after he left office in 2017). The guy who married for a second time only after his first wife was killed in a car accident, along with his one-year-old daughter; the one without any allegations of sexual misconduct until 2019, after he had declared his candidacy for President for the third time -- not even any allegations during the first two runs for President, despite some incidents allegedly taking pace before Biden's second run for President.

Hmmm, how odd. How Trump-like, that these smears should suddenly pop up now.

Also... Yes, as a woman, I admit that I do have a lack of respect for men who marry 'trophy wives' or have 'trophy girlfriends' and/or who treat women as sex objects. I have much more respect for a woman like Michelle Obama who is a strong, intelligent woman than I do for someone like Melania Trump who has treated herself like a sex object, wants to be perceived as a sex object and who places more importance on her appearance than anything else.

Would you rather have a daughter who was a Harvard graduate or a daughter who feels she needs breast implants so she can be perceived as being more sexy and who treats herself and wants to be perceived as a sex object?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

True, Trump has done some good stuff but it all gets lost in a dense fog of lies and premature victory laps.

For example, West Texas Oil index (WTI) briefly dropped below $11 a barrel today from a peak of $66 just one year ago despite multiple own tweets about Trump's great oil deal.
