It looks like Joe Biden will run for president after all. A few hours ago, Barack Obama’s former vice president released a video where he directly addressed the accusations made by several women that he behaved inappropriately with them.
Biden posted the three-minute video on Wednesday which is one day after President Donald Trump who has been accused of sexually assaulting, rape, and was caught saying grab women by their private parts; mocked Biden.
The Democrat did not apologize to the women but did promise to change his behavior in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Biden said this: “Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted, and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it. I hear what they’re saying. I understand it. I’ll be much more mindful. That’s my responsibility, and I’ll meet it.”
Biden, who has been caught on camera being very affectionate with women, men, children, and even dogs; defended his actions as innocent.
According to the former senator from Delaware confessed that the display of public affection is how he connects with people.
Biden stated: “I’ve found that scores, if not hundreds of people, have come up to me and reached out for solace or comfort, something, anything that might help them get through the tragedy they’re going through, and so it’s just who I am.”
He continued with: “And I’ve never thought as politics as cold or anti-septic, I’ve always thought about it as connecting with people, shaking hands, a hand on the shoulder, a hug or encouragement.”
Trump taunted Biden during a speech where he said: “I was going to call him. I don’t know him well. I was going to say, ‘Welcome to the world, Joe. You having a good time, Joe? Are you having a good time?'”
Trump later added: “No, he’s going to make his own decisions. He’s very capable of making a decision, I assume. I wish him luck. I do wish him luck.”
Four women have spoken to the media saying that Biden made them feel uncomfortable.
A long list of public figures have stepped out to show support for Biden, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Meghan McCain.
MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski, who backs Biden, said Democrats might be taking down the only candidate capable of defeating President Trump.
