Since Joe Biden announced he’s running for president it seems the most coverage we’ve seen about him is either from his own party trying to somehow get him out of the race OR from useless pandering talk shows like The View.
Joe went on the show and claimed he had always believed Anita Hill … there was one problem.
And he was far from the only one who thought so, despite the sanctified status she now enjoys https://t.co/p2RgFitxSI

From The Federalist:
Former vice president Joe Biden repeatedly said on The View on Friday that he believed Anita Hill from the moment he heard her tale of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. But he previously told Sen. Arlen Specter that it was clear her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee included lies.
“Not only didn’t I vote for Clarence Thomas, I believed her from the beginning. I was against Clarence Thomas, I did everything in my power to defeat Clarence Thomas and he won by the smallest margin anyone ever won going on the Supreme Court,” Biden told “The View’s” Joy Behar.
But in 1998, Biden admitted to Specter that “It was clear to me from the way she was answering the questions, [Hill] was lying” about a key part of her testimony. The exchange was published in Specter’s 2000 memoir, “Passion for Truth: From Finding JFK’s Single Bullet to Questioning Anita Hill to Impeaching Clinton.”
We feel like we write that word a lot these days when we talk about Democrats …
Ruh-roh, Joe … and oopsie.
Anything to win… ANYTHING!
