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 want to be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I want to meet it. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts

Joe Biden: “I shake hands, I said hug people”
Biden, he always tried to connect to people. “I shake hands, I hug people, I believe men and women to the shoulders and tell them, ‘You can do this.'” He had always been. In this way, he attempts to show people that they meant something to him and he will listen. “So I’m easy.” But times have changed. “Today, it comes to take Selfies with each other.” And the limits for the protection of personal space are different today. He’s got to understand.
