I missed this during the Biden Teeball Townhall. But then, I could only take a few minutes of Sleepy Joe at a stretch before putting the much livelier Trump back on.
Biden Says He Backs Transgender Rights for 8-Year-Olds: ‘I Will Flat Out Just Change the Law’
The former vice president made the comments during a town hall in Philadelphia hosted by ABC News and was responding to a question from a woman who said she is the mother of two girls, ages 8 and 10
"My youngest daughter is transgender,” she said.
The Trump administration, the woman said, has banned transgender individuals from military service and weakened "non-discrimination protections.” She asked: "How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S. law?”
"I will flat out just change the law,” Biden responded, saying he would "eliminate those executive orders” by the Trump administration.
"The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, ‘I decided I want to be transgender. That's what I think I'd like to be. It'd make my life a lot easier’ – there should be zero discrimination. … And so I promise you, there is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied [to] your daughter.”
The woman’s daughter, Biden says, has a "right to be and do.”
Biden was not specific about potential actions if elected, although his campaignwebsitesays he would "reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity.”So now children will be able to decide they want to magically change sexes and we have to accomodate them. What happens when they decide they want to be wolves? Do we toss them out in the wilderness? What happens when they decide they want to eat ice cream and cookies and not vegetables or meats? When they decide they want to stay up all night on a school night? So now a child's whim is the law of the land?
We are promoting a mental disorder.
And Joe Bite-Me really thinks he can just change the law? I've got news for you, Old Man: it isn't that easy! Sheesh!

But then, so too should Biden. I wonder if he wanted to sniff the kids' hair?

Frankly, at this point I think Creepy Joe will say anything he thinks will get him a few more votes. I'd just love to see his internal polling; betcha it isn't all beer and skittles like they want us to think! But I'm sure that stuff like this is going to lose them more votes than it will gain them.
