In a commentary published Sunday in The Atlantic, Biden wrote: “Today we have an American president who has publicly proclaimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and Klansmen and those who would oppose their venom and hate.” He said Trump has “emboldened white supremacists with messages of comfort and support.” …

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, warning of transgender Americans “under attack” in Republican-led states, on Wednesday challenged the nation’s LGBT community to push back against President Donald Trump’s administration. “Hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend,” Biden declared at a private LGBT gala hosted by the Democratic National Committee in New York. “Just because you don’t have Barack and me in the White House doesn’t mean it’s time to give up, keep quiet, stay on the sidelines.” Trump vowed to protect the LGBT community during his campaign, but critics say he hasn’t kept his word since...

    As if Twitter needed another reason to swoon over the former Vice President of the United States, this time Biden is back on everyone’s twitter feed because of a kiss. On Wednesday, Morgan State University graduate Brieana Carter posted the six second selfie video she took with Biden at her graduation on May 20th. In the video, Biden smiles for the camera but then turns to give Carter a tender peck on the cheek. Totally caught off guard, Carter lets out an emphatic scream as the former VP walks away.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden insists he is not making another presidential bid in 2020, despite giving a rousing speech to New Hampshire Democrats about restoring dignity to politics and winning back working class voters. Biden returned to the state on Sunday to honor the nation’s first all-female, all-Democratic congressional delegation at an annual state Democratic Party dinner. He was joined by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and U.S. Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter. “We know now you’ve finally earned the title Granite State, because you have four women running the show,” Biden told the crowd. “Amazing...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden made the crucial first step in a potential run for president in 2020, according to a Tuesday report from Politico. Biden is set to attend the New Hampshire Democrat Party’s fundraising dinner, an event he declined to attend in 2015 because he didn’t want to fuel rumors of a planned run in the 2016 presidential election, according to the report. The fundraiser is important due to the state’s “first in the nation” primary status, and the annual benefit was long seen by party officials as a way to earn early support in presidential races.

On Feb. 7, Penn President Amy Gutmann announced that Biden will lead the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. as a "Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor," but nearly a month later the administration seems unclear about what this means. Many students thought Biden would be teaching courses at Penn, ---SNIP--- Although it was first reported that Biden was going...

    Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview with the Atlantic on Monday that while “terrorism is a real threat … it’s not an existential threat to the existence of the democratic country of the United States of America.” […] “My dad used to say to me, ‘Champ, if everything is equally important to you, nothing is important to you,’” Biden said. “So the hardest thing to do, I’ve found in 44 years, is to prioritize what really are the most consequential threats and concerns, and allocate resources relative to the nature of the threat.” Biden characterized his system of...

    Crazy Uncle Joe Strikes Again… Hillary Clinton took Joe Biden with her on the campaign trail today after a weekend of rest. Biden took to the stage to bash businessman Donald Trump. Then he gave away the Secret Service agent who was holding the nuclear codes. "Donald Trump… He cannot be trusted. There’s a guy that follows me, has the nuclear codes. So, God forbid anything happen to the president and I had to make a decision the codes are with me… He is not qualified." What an complete idiot. https://youtu.be/QNfBo8biMiE

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump suggested the Democrats are going to slip Vice President Joe Biden in as the Democrat’s nominee if Hillary Clinton isn’t able to run because of her email scandal. “She had a little bad news today from some reports [that] came down that weren’t so good,” Trump told more than 3,000 of his supporters at his campaign rally Wednesday afternoon at the Anaheim, California at the Convention Center. “Inspector General’s report — not good.” Trump was referencing an Inspector General (IG) report, which concluded that Clinton “failed to seek legal approval for her use of a...

    Joe Biden took months to decide he wouldn’t run for president — but he was sold on Elizabeth Warren as his running mate from the start, people familiar with the situation told POLITICO. And he still thinks the Massachusetts firebrand would be Hillary Clinton’s best choice to replace him as the nation’s No. 2 in January 2017. Biden, a stalwart Democrat who has veered leftward in recent years — but, as a centrist senator, voted to scuttle the Glass-Steagall prohibitions on banks engaging in speculative investments — favored Warren because he needed a partner to capture the wave of anti-bank,...

    Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. “No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul.
