Joe Biden’s first presidential run was ended because of plagiarism and his third run at the White House may now suffer the same consequence.
Biden recently unveiled his climate platform, but there was a HUGE problem.
Several media outlets checked the document only to find major portions of it were stolen from other documents and/or websites without the proper attribution.
Not Again Joe
Joe Biden likes to touch things that don’t belong to him.
Sometimes it is young girls, sometimes it is someone else’s wife, and sometimes it is someone else’s work.
In 1988, Biden had his presidential run ended because he plagiarized.
Over the years, he has earned the nickname “Creepy Uncle Joe” because of the way he sneaks up on women.
This time around, he has not been able to give up either of those nasty habits.
Only days from dealing with yet another bad headline for putting his hands on a 10-year-old girl, Biden is being called out for plagiarizing again.
Biden’s climate platform was not only a blatant attempt to pander to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her New Breed, but it was also stolen from several different sources.
The stolen material was immediately noticed and is now spreading like wildfire on social media…

Now that the word is out, several publications are going over the document with a fine-toothed comb to see what else they can find.
The Daily Caller found at least three more sections that were plagiarized from another source.
In one instance, the publication cited this paragraph from Biden’s climate paper, stating, “Aviation accounts for nearly 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, and that portion is expected to increase. Unfortunately today, few low-carbon technologies or fuels have been developed to tackle this challenge.”
It then pointed to Vox, which is a liberal website, that published a story back in January, stating, “Aviation accounts for about 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, and that share is poised to grow.”
There are several more instances documented on both Fox News and The Daily Caller.
Can’t Fix It Now
As word spread about the plagiarism, the Biden campaign tried to control the damage.
By late Tuesday, several citations had been added to the climate proposal, citing all of these sources, but the damage is done here on several different levels.
First, Biden has proven to be a thief and a liar, again.
Second, and even more concerning, is that Biden apparently plans on creating policy from published materials on liberal websites.
If this is where Biden is getting his research from, the country is doomed.
Biden’s plagiarism did not go unnoticed by the Republican party, with the RNC’s Steve Guest doing his best to get the word out on Twitter…
This is not Joe Biden's first brush with plagiarism.
During his 1988 campaign, Biden plagiarized campaign speeches from British Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock as well as Robert Kennedy.
During law school, Biden plagiarized too. https://t.co/rFneLwO3CR

Several publications reportedly reached out to the Biden campaign for comment immediately after the plagiarism was spotted, but the campaign delayed commenting until the citations were added to the website.
The campaign finally told Business Insider, “Several citations were inadvertently left out of the final version of the 22-page document.
“As soon as we were made aware of it, we updated to include the proper citations.”
Let’s face facts, the citations were only made because the campaign got caught.
A document such as that should go through numerous checks to ensure everything is in line, including the citations.
This should be especially true if you were bounced out of a presidential race before for stealing someone else’s work!
So, either they knowingly plagiarized thinking nobody would catch it or they are incompetent.
Either way, this is an absolute disaster for Biden.
