Former Vice President Joe Biden’s terrible week may be an early turning point in the 2020 Democratic party nomination process as the frontrunner’s campaign was engulfed by both a plagiarism scandal as well as “lunchpail” Joe’s overnight reversal on his support for the Hyde Amendment which prohibited federal money to be used for abortions.
The wishy-washy geriatric gaffe machine stunned those who had promoted him as a moderate who could lure back white working-class voters who bolted the party for Trump in 2016 when he flip-flopped in order to appease the rabid socialist SJW base.
The media had been promoting Biden ever since he entered the race in April but may have just revoked his free pass after his inexplicable backtracking which it has been reported that he made after being shown “who’s the boss” by mouthy celebrity D-list actress Alyssa Milano.
In a very rare occurrence, a CNN host actually asked tough questions of Biden campaign communications director Kate Bedingfield who repeatedly tried to deflect but was reduced to a stammering mess.

During her interview with Keilar on Friday, Bedingfield began by insisting that his decision to oppose the Hyde Amendment wasn’t a “decision about politics” but about “health care,” echong Biden’s remarks from Thursday night that invoke the GOP lawmakers who have been passing abortion restrictions in several states.
“So why this change now?” Keilar asked. “Because if you’re trying to convince people that this isn’t about political expediency, which is part of Joe Biden’s hallmark or as he would hope it would be, then don’t you have to explain substantively how he changes his mind from Wednesday to Thursday on an issue as significant as this?”
Bedingfield, who also serves as the deputy campaign manager, responded by saying this was a “tough, personal decision” for Biden but that the “moment” has changed.
“Did he speak to advocates? How did he do it?” Keilar pressed. “Did someone give him evidence? What kind of evidence? Did he speak to advocates? Did he speak to women? What was the impetus? What was the inflection point that changed his mind?
"You've asked the question a lot of ways, I've answered it."
"I don't think you've answered it, Kate." pic.twitter.com/rR3PVgRvs0
