Former Vice President Joe Biden still has not officially announced that he is running for president, yet.
No matter Biden’s indecisiveness, he is being accused of inappropriately touching a woman in 2014 when he was still vice president. Supposedly, he touched and kissed Lucy Flores during a campaign event.
Biden has a history of inappropriately touching women in public, earning him the nickname “Creepy Uncle Joe.” However, despite the #MeToo movement, Biden has yet to be called out for his creepy behavior toward women…until now.
Now, while the left screams about believing all victims, they are actually sticking up for the Democrat.
Mika Brzezinski, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, actually stuck up for him. She basically dismissed Flores’ account, saying that Biden has “always had an affectionate, flirtatious” style with women.
What? Last time I checked, touching someone without their permission, let alone kissing them, is assault. Brzezinski also goes on to judge Biden’s “intentions,” stating that he didn’t mean anything by, there was nothing evil meant by his actions.
Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski: "[Biden] is extremely affectionate and flirtatious in a completely safe way…I don't think there's bad intent at all"
If we're going to have a real conversation about sexual assault in the #MeToo era, this can't be partisan.

Morning Joe wasn’t the only one to write off Biden’s history of touching women inappropriately.
The Washington Post also came to his defense.
In some of the photos, Joe Biden is behind the women, his hands on their shoulders, as he whispers in their ears. He embraces Hillary Clinton, his hands around her torso. He kisses a young girl’s head, his fingers framing her face, as she looks blankly toward the camera.
This affectionate and sometimes intimate physical style is one of the former vice president’s trademarks, a defining feature of the warm and upbeat persona he has built during more than four decades in the national spotlight. But the appropriateness of Biden’s physical behavior toward women is now being questioned, after a female Democratic politician penned a viral Internet piece describing an alleged 2014 encounter that left her offended and uncomfortable.
Imagine either of them writing or saying something similar about a Republican, that’ll never, ever happen.
