Well sir, in that case, can you imagine being a female athlete? In response to his ludicrous statement, women across the internet didn’t hesitate to put him in his place.

Joe Biden readies major endorsements and message of strength ahead of likely 2020 run

(CNN)Joe Biden didn’t clear the field, so he’s poised to join it. His verbal slip — intentional or not — drew laughter in the room and considerable attention outside, but it was the words “new left” that may have offered the best clue about how he plans to run a third bid for the White House.
