Donald Trump TAUNTS Joe Biden over ‘inappropriate behaviour’ ‘welcome to the world!’

Donald Trump TAUNTS Joe Biden over ‘inappropriate behaviour’ ‘welcome to the world!’

Former Vice President Joe Biden addressed the American people Wednesday afternoon after a series of allegations were made against the top Obama aide for "inappropriate" behavior; saying "social norms are changing".

Biden also said, "I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future".

Biden maintained that he meant no ill will, and his penchant for hugs and shoulder rubs was "just who I am", but conceded that it was on him to adjust to contemporary standards on personal space.

The other woman, D. J. Hill, said that while she was having a picture taken with Biden, his hand started wandering down her back before he was stopped. "I've always tried to make a human connection", he said of his physical interaction with women and men over the years and he acknowledged that the contact has made some uncomfortable. "That's my responsibility and I will meet it", posted Biden on social media.

He did not directly apologise, but seemed to be seeking to ease some people's discomfort over the "gestures of support and encouragement" he had made to "women and some men".

Two more women came forward with their own stories of "very uncomfortable" encounters with Biden on Tuesday, bringing the total number of accusers to four.

Then came Amy Lappos, who said Biden put his hand around her neck and rubbed his nose against hers at a political fundraiser in 2009.

"I was going to call him". In the face of that contradiction, Biden says he now understands that he must stop touching people without their permission.

A former Nevada state legislator last week accused Biden of kissing her on the back of the head at a 2014 event, and a CT woman said Biden rubbed noses with her at a 2009 event.

But questions linger: Does the former US senator who presided over the Anita Hill hearing understand that to demand women be treated with dignity in the workplace is not self-righteous, is not character assassination and is not applying a purity test. Arguably, it's what makes the Democratic Party credible in the Trump era.

Biden is widely expected to launch his presidential campaign in the coming days; leading fellow Democrats by "double-digits" according to recent polls. "What example will we set for them?" the narrator says. "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately". I've worked my whole life to empower women.

Former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a Democratic event in Dover, Del., on March 16, 2019.
