Biden’s Non-Apology Apology Video Gets Frosty Reception: Where’s the ‘I’m Sorry?’


Nearly one week after former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores came forward to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriate physical contact, the ex-Vice President has made his first videotaped comments on the matter.

In a clip posted to Twitter, Biden addressed the accusations by Flores, and an unnamed Connecticut woman by saying, “Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted. And the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it. I get it. I hear what they’re saying. I understand. And I’ll be much more mindful. That’s my responsibility… and I’ll meet it.”

Biden, however, did not offer an apology. Observers on Twitter — who gave the video a frosty reception overall — unquestionably noticed.

Have a tip we should know?
