Howard Schultz at Fox News Town Hall: ‘Concerning’ That Biden Accusations Are Coming Up ‘All of a Sudden’

Howard Schultz is questioning the timing of the claims against former Vice President Joe Biden that he made inappropriate physical contact with women.

Speaking at a Fox News town hall on Thursday, the ex-Starbucks CEO expressed his skepticism over the timing of the claims.

“The only thing I would ask is one question: Why is this coming up now?” Schultz said.
“I’m not questioning the women on any level. But it’s concerning to me that all of a sudden, on the eve of was announcing or not, this is all of a sudden coming up. It’s concerning.”

In response to a question from Fox’s Martha MacCallum as to whether the claims against Biden disqualify him from running for President, Schultz said:

There’s no reason for anyone to believe that these women are not telling the truth. But it’s really up to voters whether or not vice president Biden is qualified to run. I think this kind of behavior is certainly inconsistent with how to behave, and how to respect women. And it’s concerning.

However, Vice President Biden has served the country for 40 years. Has been Vice President for eight years.”
