Tammy Bruce: Biden's jokes about allegations prove Dems are 'frauds'

Radio talk show host Tammy Bruce ripped former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday for laughing off accusations of inappropriate touching and called Democratic leaders “frauds” for not condemning his actions.

“And now look, you've got Joe Biden going up in his speech joking about it, just dismissing the nature of behavior, that if it was done in a workplace would have serious repercussions,” Bruce said on Fox News' “Hannity.”

“This is about ... the sense of women's ability to be taken seriously, to not be touched without being asked, if at all, in the workplace.”

Biden appeared to make light of the controversy during his first public appearance since a group of women said he made them feel uncomfortable. His remarks came Friday at a speech delivered to members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) in Washington.

Biden was introduced onstage by the IBEW's male president, Lonnie Stephenson, whom he embraced.

“I just want you to know I had permission to hug Lonnie,” Biden joked.

Bruce went after Democratic leaders for not being more critical of Biden and asked that “grassroots Democrats and independents” see that their lives have become better not because of the Democratic Party but because of President Trump and conservative policies.

“This should show… Democrats as well grassroots Democrats that their leadership has been misleading them. The leadership is not serious. Its leadership is using them,” Bruce told host Sean Hannity.

“I would encourage all independents and Democrats, it's not about changing your point of view or where you stand on the issues. Realize that the people who've asked you to vote for them have been frauds for a very long time.

“And look around you -- African-American, gays and lesbians and women -- that your lives, in fact, are not getting better based on the Democrat narrative. But, in fact, are getting better because of the conservative ideal as now being implemented by the current president,” Bruce added.
