President accused of stealing football story from first lady's ex-husband

 July 31, 2023

In a bizarre development, First Lady Jill Biden's ex-husband has accused President Joe Biden of stealing a personal anecdote just minutes after he told it. 

According to the New York Post, 75-year-old Bill Stevenson came forward with that allegation during an interview last week.

"He just acted like it was his own story"

He explained that the incident took place in 1972 when Biden was running to become Delaware's junior senator and had visited a nightclub that Stevenson owned.

Stevenson recalled to Biden how his mother had once asked his prep-school football coach why the season's game schedule had been put up in the women's bathroom.

Stevenson said the coach answered by saying, "No disrespect … [but] that’s where our schedule belongs: in the ladies' room."

Yet when the future president was later introduced to the club's bouncers--all of whom were football players--an "astonished" Stevenson watched Biden as proceeded to repeat the story as if it were his own.

"I just stared at him in shock," Stevenson was quoted as telling the Post. “He just acted like it was his own story. I just told myself, "This must be what politicians are like.'"

"I knew he had some issues"

"People are only now starting to think that something is wrong with Joe, but back then I saw the roots of his plagiarism," Stevenson continued.

"I knew that he had some issues when I met him in 1972, although I always thought he was a charming guy back then," the first lady's ex-husband acknowledged.

In addition to speaking to the Post, Stevenson also had an interview with Newsmax last week in which he discussed his new book titled "The Bidens: The Early Years."

Biden faced plagiarism allegations in the past

While speaking with Newsmax host Greg Kelly, Stevenson asserted that Biden used the government to attack him following his divorce from Jill.

This is hardly the first time Biden has been said to have appropriated the words of others, with Fox News noting that he dropped out of the 1988 presidential race after it emerged that he had plagiarized a speech delivered by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.

What's more, the Post reported in 2020 that when giving his DNC acceptance speech, Biden included lines originally spoken by Canadian politician Jack Layton.
