Democratic 2020 hopeful attempts to turn president’s famous MAGA phrase against him
Democratic 2020 hopeful Joe Biden attempted to twist President Donald Trump’s famous “Make America Great Again” slogan by declaring “Make America Moral Again” during a Monday interview.
The irony of the “moral” twist on the phrase was sadly lost on “Creepy Uncle Joe,” however, as his campaign has been dogged with allegations of inappropriate behavior towards women before it was even officially announced.
Biden has come under increasing scrutiny over recent weeks after several women accused him inappropriate touching, kissing and “sniffing.”
He later posted a 2-minute video response on Twitter promising he would be “much more respectful and mindful” of personal space calling it his “responsibility,” which left at least one of his accusers unsatisfied.
The first of the women to come forward, former Nevada State Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, says it was “incredibly disrespectful” for Biden to make light of accusations of inappropriate conduct.
“Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity and treating our people with dignity and this God-awful deliberate division that’s being taken in order to separate people to aggrandize his own power,” the former vice president declared in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

In the ABC interview, Mr. Biden also addressed the controversy surrounding Anita Hill and her treatment during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings, according to the Washington Times.
“I was grateful she took the call. I don’t want to get into our private conversation, but the point is I was chairman of the committee,” Mr. Biden said.
“I believed her from the very beginning, but I was chairman. She did not get a fair hearing.
“She did not get treated well. That’s my responsibility.”

“I committed that I’m determined to continue the fight, that we see to it that we basically change the culture in this country,” he said.
“Where a woman gets put in a position where she’s disbelieved.
“As a committee chairman, she did not get treated well, I take responsibility for that.”
The former vice president said during an interview with ABC’s “The View” that he “did everything in my power to do what I thought was within the rules.”
Ms. Hill has rebuffed apology attempts made by Mr. Biden, saying she “cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you.”
“I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose,” she told The New York Times.
