Despite calls to address the growing epidemic of abusive teenage girls, Vice President Biden glossed over the problem during his Sept. 27, 2011 appearance on ABC’s The View.
Host Whoopi Goldberg even asked the Vice President a direct question about the reality of dating violence, but Biden did not respond to the question:
“And will you just also remind people, remind the women that the way to get a man’s attention is not to hit him? Do not hit him. (applause) Because this is something violence in itself, is something we need to teach kids not to perpetrate on each other. No?”
