Former Vice President Joe Biden has promised that he "will be more mindful about people's personal space" in the future, as he faces multiple accusations of inappropriate contact with women.
"Social norms have begun to change, they've shifted. That won't change but I will be more mindful and respectful of peoples' personal space".
Joe Biden is like Ross, not me.
In a clip from CBS Evening News, he added that in America everyone gets "due process" and just because Biden has been accused of touching women in ways that made them uncomfortable, it doesn't mean he necessarily did it. I understand it. And I'll be much more mindful.
Former Vice President Joe Biden responded on Wednesday to the extensive criticism he's faced after several women accused him of making them uncomfortable with what they considered inappropriate touching. I shake hands, I hug people. Biden's political team has tried to contain the damage, encouraging women who have known him to come forward with positive accounts of their interactions with him.
Biden's comments come days after a CT woman said he touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her at a political fundraiser a decade ago. "When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth". "And I've never thought of politics as cold and antiseptic, I've always thought of it [as] about connecting with people", he explained.
