Biden is just creepy. Yes, we know how he likes to touch women and even young girls. We know about the Tara Reade “who went public in March with allegations that Biden shoved her against a wall and forcibly penetrated her with his fingers.” But did you catch the National Review article (“A Bizarre and Revealing Biden Interview”) by Kyle Smith bringing forth an interview of Joe Biden dug up from 1974 in Claremont Review of Books where Joe talks about making money and his first wife who had recently died?
The National Review article focuses on the making money angle, implying the “the big guy” back then was a grifter in the making. Actually The American Spectator had an even better piece by George Neumayr, titled “Swampy Joe’s Big Lies,” revealing what a con Biden has been his entire career. That’s really worth reading, but I digress with that.
Back to Biden’s 1974 interview.
Biden also speaks of his first wife Neilia, who had died two years earlier, in unusually frank ways: His Senate office was then something of a shrine to her, decorated with dozens of pictures including a large one of her tombstone, and he spoke about her for three hours.
“Let me show you my favorite picture of her,” he told Kitty Kelley, holding up a picture of Neilia in a bikini. “She had the best body of any woman I ever saw. She looks better than a Playboy bunny, doesn’t she?” He also said Neilia was a conservative Republican when they met but became a Democrat and that “at first she stayed at home with the kids while I campaigned but that didn’t work out because I’d come back too tired to talk to her. I might satisfy her in bed but I didn’t have much time for anything else.” He exclaimed, “Neilia was my very best friend, my greatest ally, my sensuous lover. The longer we lived together the more we enjoyed everything from sex to sports. Most guys don’t really know what I lost because they never knew what I had. Our marriage was sensational.” He added, “I want to find a woman to adore me again.”
He passed a picture of his wife in a bikini and told the female interviewer that his wife had the best body of any woman and better than those in Playboy? Who does that? And then he tells the woman that he didn’t have time for anything else but to “satisfy her in bed.” He continues by telling her his wife was his “sensuous lover” and that they enjoyed everything from “sex to sports.” Most guys “don’t really know what I had?” Huh? So you had a sexy wife; who cares? Who brings these kinds of things up unless they think of it about other guys’ wives?
My reaction when I read that was, that’s pretty creepy. Those kinds of details are private between a husband and wife. Am I a prude? I would never speak about my intimate moments with my wife. And to a woman?
It’s just so icky. I believe Tara Reade. Biden did assault her. Joe Biden is a creep. I hope we are spared on Election Day.Published in
