November is right around the corner.
It looks like former Vice President Joe Biden and incumbent President Donald Trump will face off in the General Election in a few months, but who knows if Biden will blow it or a new face of the Democrat Party will emerge. Nevertheless, the Democrat will need all the help they can get.
That’s why it’s bizarre that Joe Biden’s campaign just refunded a donation made by the last Hollywood star you’d ever suspect.
Standup comedian Louis Szekely, who is also known more famously as Louis CK (pronounced the same, which is why he changed it to the phonetic spelling), was one of the most famous voices in comedy just a few short years ago.
The middle-aged balding red-haired fat man was widely regarded as the world’s greatest standup comedian (Dave Chappelle didn’t make his comeback until 2016), who starred in movies like “The Secret Life of Pets” and “American Hustle,” but more famously known for his hit FX television show loosely based on his life, “Louie.”
But then his whole career came crashing down in October 2017 when five different women accused him of gross sexual deviances, which he later admitted were true.
Some of the women said he abruptly began masturbating in front of them. One said he requested to do so, but she refused his request. Another said she could tell he was masturbating while speaking on the phone with her.
However, in a rare form of overt irony, Louis CK donated $2,800 to former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on March 4th according to Federal Election Commission records.
A Biden campaign spokesman said the contribution has since been refunded, which will be reflected in his next report filed in May. The spokesman declined to comment further on the matter according to Time.
Why is it ironic?
It was recently revealed amid this global pandemic chaos that Tara Reade, a former staffer in Joe Biden’s Senate office, accused the Democratic nominee of sexually assaulting her in a congressional hallway in 1993.
Talk about pot calling the kettle black. How can you reject a donation from a moral high ground when you’re accused of far worse than the allegations against CK?
Liberals will love to tell you that Reade’s allegation is baseless, but earlier this week a former neighbor of Reade’s and Biden supporter, Lynda LaCasse, claimed Reade told her about the alleged incident in detail a few years later in 1995 or 1996.
Even a different former colleague of Reade’s remembered she talked about the hallway assault in the mid-1990s. Are we supposed to believe Reade’s been perpetuating this lie for nearly three decades?
That’s not plausible.
But Biden rejecting the donation proves how disillusioned and hypocritical the entire campaign for the former vice president is. It’s a disastrous mess and this is just another caveat proving it.
