Well, credit where credit is due….
He did string together a full sentence on this one.
He probably wishes he hadn't, but it's all on video tape.
Anderson Cooper's body language says it all as he's listening to this.
In all it's glory my friends, I present to you Joe Biden's rant about that time it was "all about gay bath houses and round-the-clock sex".
Completed with a "COME ON, MAN!" at the end.
Watch and then watch again:
And just for those "fact-checkers" who will say this doesn't have the "proper context" here is the FULL CONTEXT from far-left HuffPost itself:
On prime-time television Thursday night, Joe Biden reminisced about a time when LGBTQ discourse was all about “gay bathhouses” and ”round-the-clock sex” ― and viewers were not sure how to feel about it.
The former vice president made the comments to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who was moderating the Los Angeles town hall event, a forum for nine Democratic presidential candidates to discuss LGBTQ issues.
After going on a tangent about stereotypes surrounding gay people, Biden concluded with a reflection on how the discourse about homosexuality had changed in recent years, compared with about two decades ago:
“Remember, Anderson? Back 15, 20 years ago, when we talked about this in San Francisco, it was all about, well, gay bathhouses. It was all about round-the-clock sex. Come on, man. Gay couples are more likely to stay together longer than heterosexual couples,” he said.
On a more serious note, Biden also discussed curtailing foreign assistance to countries who discriminate against LGBTQ citizens, the importance of passing the Equality Act in order to reduce hate crimes and protecting transgender people’s right to join the military.
At one point, he referenced a time when he “came out” but rolled with the joke and walked across the stage to put his arm around Cooper, who is gay.
“Well, that would be news,” Cooper joked back. “I kind of figured it out a while ago.”
People on Twitter were very confused by, well, all of it.
But he wasn't done.
Think that was bad?
Here he is talking about "when he came out".
Here's even MORE context, from PinkNews:
The former vice president was responding to a question about how he would ease racial disparities in health, including higher HIV rates in black Americans.
He pledged to “make sure there is no ability for hospitals or healthcare providers to discriminate”, stressing the importance of education around HIV and AIDS, before things took an odd turn.
During his answer, Biden digressed from the topic at hand and instead began speaking about the stereotypes which have followed gay men over the years, concluding with a non-sequitur about gay bathhouses.
“Remember, Anderson? Back 15, 20 years ago, when we talked about this in San Francisco, it was all about, well, gay bathhouses,” he told moderator Anderson Cooper.
“It was all about round-the-clock sex. Come on, man. Gay couples are more likely to stay together longer than heterosexual couples.”
