Joe Biden acknowledges past behaviour made some uncomfortable

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

Last week, fellow Democratic politician Lucy Flores said Biden planted a "big slow kiss" on the back of her head at a rally in Nevada in 2014. Biden's apparent lack of boundaries has been a topic of conversation before, but they're being explored in the new light of the #MeToo era.

While he still considers politics to be about personal connection, he said he "will be more mindful and respectful of people's personal space".

Biden said that while he's always made an effort to make "gestures of support and encouragement" to men and women, he recognizes that he needs to adjust.

"I've never thought of politics as cold and antiseptic", he said in the clip, which ran just over two minutes. "It's the way I've tried to show I care about them and I'm listening", the 75-year-old Biden said.

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.

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.

Federer wins 101st title, beating Isner in Miami Open final
A final Isner forehand, originally called in, was overturned upon review as going long to give Federer the match and the trophy. I'm so glad I came here, ' said Federer, who was not originally certain to play as he treats his body with increasing caution.

Since then, another woman has said Mr Biden grabbed her face when he was thanking congressional staff at a 2009 event.

The video was Mr Biden's first direct comment on what has tripped up his preparations to enter the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign. He stops himself from talking about it in that video, but he has worked really hard to make it tougher for college men to defend themselves from accusations of sexual harassment.

He acknowledged that "social norms have changed", offering that he would be "much more mindful".

Two people close to Biden said his timeline for a presidential run is unlikely to change - at least as of now.

But if you know anything about Biden, you know that he's now caught in a trap of his own making.

Meanwhile Ms Pelosi told Politico: "I don't think it's disqualifying". Biden said that he has a record of empowering women and working to prevent abuse, and that people should believe him when he says that he can change.

Democrats have yet to say Biden's behavior is disqualifying, opting instead for a cautious and more nuanced conversation around the implications of his behavior.
