SNL Gives Joe Biden Sensitivity Training: ‘Let’s Hug It Out, America!’

SNL Gives Joe Biden Sensitivity Training: ‘Let’s Hug It Out, America!’Saturday Night Live gave Donald Trump a break this week and instead put Joe Biden through the ringer. Jason Sudeikis busted back onto the show in a cold open sketch that found the former vice president undergoing sensitivity training following a week in which he was repeatedly accused of inappropriate behavior with women over the years and awkwardly tried to dismiss those allegations with a series of jokes. “You guys know that I’m a tactile politician, right?” Sudeikis’ Biden asked his campaign staffers. “I’m a hugger, I’m a kisser, and I’m a little bit of a sniffer. The last thing I ever want to do is offend anyone.” With that in mind, they brought in a consultant played by Kate McKinnon to school him on how to behave, and Biden immediately started nuzzling her head and rubbing her arms. “Yeah, so this is exactly the kind of thing I’m here to prevent.” “Wait, I think nose to nose is going to be OK,” Biden replied. “Because look, I did the 23andme thing, like Lizzie, what’s her name, Warren, right? It turns out that I’m 1-percent Eskimo, so I’m allowed to do the kissing.” When she told him he shouldn’t be hugging or kissing any women he meets, he protested. “That’s a human connection. That’s my whole thing,” he said. “That’s like telling Mario Batali to take his Crocs off.” Later, they presented some female voters so Biden could practice and when he was told one was looking for someone who could beat Donald Trump, he asked, “You mean the guy who actually bragged about assault on tape?”“Yes, but unlike his voters, your voters actually care,” his staffer replied. Ultimately, Biden admitted he didn’t really learn anything from the experience. “But the important thing, I think, is that I’m listening, I hear you, I feel you,” Biden said. “So let’s hug it out, America, what do you say? Biden and some woman in 2020, right? We can do this!” Read more at The Daily Beast.

On foreign policy, a confident Trump removes his training wheels

On foreign policy, a confident Trump removes his training wheelsIn the days preceding last July’s NATO summit in Brussels that President Trump was set to attend, administration officials including Defense Secretary James Mattis worked around the clock with European allies to seal a summit declaration before the alliance leaders’ meeting even began. The rush by Mr. Mattis and others to complete a deal they knew might not sit well with their boss – who had consistently aired his doubts about the benefits of international defense alliances like NATO and his disdain for what he considered to be freeloading allies – was striking. What it displayed was one more example of Mr. Trump’s top national security advisers working around the president’s skepticism and unpredictability toward traditional allies to confirm America’s unaltered global leadership role.
