The term “economic intercourse” was trending on Twitter Tuesday afternoon after Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden used the term in an interview with CBS 4 Miami.
“I would get much more engaged in the world,” Biden said when asked about the United States’ handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We can’t step back. If in fact, for example, we solve the problem in the United States of America and you don’t solve it in other parts of the world do you know what’s going to happen? You’re going to have travel bans, you’re not going to have economic intercourse around the world.”
The word intercourse has two meanings. One is “communication or dealings between individuals or groups” and the other definition is the one Twitter was consumed with.
Maybe it was just a Freudian slip considering the news surrounding Biden and the sexual assault allegations against him.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
