Joe Biden’s “absurd” statements on rape and murder

21 Oct

 

(If Joe Biden was a Republican, he would be considered the biggest idiot in Washington D.C.  The guy is off the charts)

Joe Biden has taken some heat recently for his passionate plea to pass Obama’s “jobs” bill.  Without it, he claims, “rapes will continue to rise.”  On Tuesday, Biden doubled-down on his statement:

“Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape.”

Really?  Not making light of rape, but I’d love to know how that happens.  Does the girl being raped ask her attacker to hold on while she calls 911 and the attacker holds tight until the cops arrive?  Does she sneakily dial up 911 while defending herself against her attacker?  How does this work?

Not that anyone is surprised, but Biden facts don’t actually match up with reality.  Shocker, I know!  The Washington Post Fact Checker called Biden’s claims “absurd” and gave him the maximum number of Pinocchios and stated:

“In any case, the vice president should know better than to spout off half-baked facts in service of a dubious argument. Even if one believes there is a link between crime and the number of police—which is debatable and subject to many caveats—there is no excuse to make the dramatic claim that more people will die or be raped without additional funds for police. When making such a breathtaking charge, you had better have your facts straight.”
