(Republican Insider) – Democrats are all about “empowering women” which often comes at the cost of others including actual women and men who are wrongly accused of sexual harassment.
Former Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is speaking out against the Biden regime’s efforts to restore an Obama-era rule that essentially robs men accused of sexual harassment/assault of the opportunity for due process.
Title IX changes began under Obama but were reversed by DeVos under Trump and are now being restored under Biden.
DeVos says according to Title IX Joe Biden himself would be guilty of sexual harassment but he nor the Democrats are willing to address the countless claims of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior on Biden’s part.
During an interview with commentator Megyn Kelly, DeVos retold her story, which she has told several times as an example as to why the Biden regime’s proposed Title IX changes are wrong.
“I’ve only had one encounter with Joe Biden, and it was before he decided to run for president. I was in a wheelchair. I was backstage after speaking. I’d never met him before in my life. He came up to me, put his hands on my shoulders and his forehead on my forehead for several seconds and had a conversation with me,” DeVos said.
Betsy DeVos wonders if Biden would support due process if he were accountable for HIS behavior – including with her! https://t.co/mecbZKk7Bb

“If he had done that as a student on a college campus, under his proposed rule I would have a Title IX sexual harassment allegation to levy against him because of his conduct. I heard from many students who had lesser encounters or lesser situations than what I had to encounter with him, and yet he wants this for college students, but will not acknowledge and, you know, agree to probes into allegations of much more egregious conduct on his part against other women,” DeVos continued.
“I’m just using it as an example to say this administration is so bent on trying to politicize and weaponize a law that was meant to protect women and to give them access to education, not to weaponize it to harm others. And, you know, this is a really, really bad direction that they’re taking with their proposed Title IX rule. And I hope people will speak up about it.”
Kelly’s response was one we can all relate to. She was truly disgusted by the idea of Joe Biden, or anyone, putting their forehead on someone else’s forehead to have a conversation. It’s beyond weird and awkward.
“Wait, you were in a wheelchair and he came over and he touched foreheads with you? Oh my God! Why!? Disgusting! You don’t want to touch foreheads with anybody. I don’t even touch foreheads with my husband. I mean, that’s bizarre and another example of his inappropriate boundary crossing,” Kelly said.
She then asked what exactly Biden had been saying to her.
“Good question. He asked if I had any hardware as a result of my injury. I had broken my pelvis. Then he told me that he had nine screws in his shoulder, but everybody thought they were in his head. And he was doing this while holding on to my shoulders with his forehead pressed to mine, with nowhere to go to or escape,” DeVos replied.
“So you were basically harassed, the legal legal definition of sexual harassment, by Joe Biden, while in a wheelchair. That’s our takeaway here,” she said.
Yup. But don’t expect anyone to hold Joe Biden accountable or any other powerful, high-ranking Democrat, for that matter.
