Former Vice President Joe Biden responded to accusations of him inappropriately touching women Wednesday, saying that he needs to be “more mindful about respecting personal space.”
Biden, in a tweet with an accompanying video, said the following:”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.”
Multiple women had come forward in the past week, accusing Biden of conduct that made them feel uncomfortable.
