Joe Biden is not Donald Trump. Which apparently means his creeping on women shouldn’t even register on the ick meter. At least not according to Ana Navarro:
.@ananavarro says "we're cheapening the #MeToo movement" by talking about the Lucy Flores allegations "in the same breath that we talk about Donald Trump or Harvey Weinstein, Brett Kavanaugh, Bill Clinton."

Oh hey guys there's a spectrum for accusations of sexual misconduct, now! Biden was just engaging in "unwelcome affection" LOL https://t.co/0sGZFXoFq5

It’s bad enough when a pundit makes that argument. When a sitting U.S. Senator like Mazie Hirono makes it? It’s downright gross:
Sen. Hirono on Biden allegations: “Trump is many, many degrees of worseness. If there is such a word.”

Illiterate whataboutism. Love it

Hey, here’s a thought: It’s actually quite possible to call Biden out for his lecherous behavior while also thinking that Trump’s boasting about his own lecherous behavior and adultery is disgusting. Creepy, inappropriate behavior is always creepy and inappropriate.
So it's okay if someone from our party does it, but not if someone from the other does it.
Glad to see such deep concern for women's right to not be harassed.

#MeToo isn’t supposed to be conditional.
