Former Republican presidential candidate and Reagan administration official Pat Buchanan told Newsmax TV that Joe Biden has a "fairly serious and damaging problem" on his hands in regard to the claims of misconduct leveled at him by multiple women.
During an appearance on "Newsmax Now," Buchanan discussed the former vice president's woes as the latter prepares to announce his candidacy for president.
"I think he's gonna have to say more because as soon as he announces — if he announces, and I predict he will — I think the first questions the press is gonna hit him with are questions about these events, which are clearly problematic," Buchanan said. "They've dominated the news for three or four days."
Earlier Wednesday, Biden released a video in which he pledged to respect people's boundaries moving forward. Four women have gone public with claims he made them uncomfortable during physical interactions over the years.
"Joe Biden was in the mainstream of the Democratic party and pretty much in the mainstream of the country during his career as a United States senator," Buchanan said. "The mainstream has moved, and Joe Biden didn't move with it."
Buchanan then used a sports analogy to describe Biden's predicament.
"I think it's sort of a turnover on your first possession of the ball," he said.
