CNN’s Gloria Borger: Biden Is ‘Reminding People of the Gaffe-Prone Joe Biden’
A CNN panel tonight knocked former Vice President Joe Biden for awkwardly joking about the controversy over women who have said they felt uncomfortable about him touching them inappropriately.
.@andersoncooper: In most cases if you're a public figure being accused by women of inappropriate touching the last thing you want to do is make any kind of joke about inappropriate touching. Joe Biden today made two." https://t.co/5zMyCrNarQ pic.twitter.com/0hAaMAlfBB

Biden today joked about getting “permission” first, and as Gloria Borger told Anderson Cooper tonight, clearly Biden’s aides were “cringing.”
“He’s only reminding people of the gaffe-prone Joe Biden,” she said. “This was a gaffe today, he shouldn’t have done it.”
David Axelrod similarly didn’t understand why Biden did this today after the video he put out earlier this week. Kirsten Powers questioned whether Biden gets it after what he said today.
