Former Vice President Joe Biden released a video addressing the multiple women who say he made them uncomfortable with his seemingly sexual touching, saying he will learn to be more mindful of personal space.
Biden has been embroiled with controversy after at least three women came forward to say his disrespect toward their bodies made them feel uncomfortable, and now he has released a video on Twitter pledging to change and learn to respect personal boundaries.
“I want to talk about gestures of support I’ve made to women and some men that have made them uncomfortable,” said Biden. “In my career I’ve always tried to make a human connection, that’s my responsibility. I shake hands, I huge people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say you can do this. Women, men, young, old, it’s the way I’ve always been.”
Biden continued to admit that he frequently touches people, saying it is how he shows he is “listening to you.”
“I’ve never thought of politics as cold and antiseptic,” said Biden, before adding that “Social norms have began to change and they’re shifting and boundaries around protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it. I hear what they’re saying, I understand, and I’ll be much more mindful.”
He then made the pledge that he “will be more mindful and respectful of people’s personal space,” adding, “and that’s a good thing.”
Biden then added a virtue signal to his video statement, telling viewers that he has “worked my whole life to empower women. I’ve worked my whole life to confront abuse.”
He concluded, “So the idea that I can’t adjust to the fact that perosnal space is important, more important than it’s ever been, is just not true. I will, I will.”
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

As multiple media outlets attempt to downplay Biden’s alleged sexual contact, including the failing Washington Post which described it as “affectionate,” President Donald J. Trump is making it a central issue. President Trump directly hit Biden for the controversy during a televised speech at the NRCC yesterday.
Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh also chimed in, saying the Biden scandal is “growing” and “splitting the Democrat ranks” earlier today on his radio show.
Before the controversy broke, Biden was expected to announce his candidacy for president last week.
Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump
The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.
A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
