Former Vice President Joe Biden is not running for president, yet. However, even before he officially launches his campaign, he finds himself in a bit of controversy.
Biden has been accused of invading the personal space and inappropriately touching several women. The media, however, has cheerfully and wholeheartedly defended him as he still contemplates running for the White House.
Now, Joe is speaking out for himself, saying that “politics is all about connecting with people” and goes on to talk about the ways in which he often touches men and women. He says it’s just how he shows people that he cares and that he’s listening.
Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts
