Yikes: Feinstein, Manchin Come to Biden’s Defense, Act Out His ‘Touchy, Feely Style’

Democrats have been weighing in on the inappropriate touching allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Perhaps one of the most cringeworthy defenses would have to be the one from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).

They both were definitely in Biden’s corner when they spoke about it to reporters.

So much so that they acted out what they say he does, with Feinstein touching an aide and Manchin touching a reporter.

From Politico:

Biden is “a warm, tactile person. He reaches out and he touches and it’s like this and that. It’s hardly sexy,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), gently touching an aide. “It’s a new thing that people have been affronted by it. Over 25 years I’ve never seen that before.”

No, it’s not new that people have been affronted by it. People have been talking about it for years. It’s just new that Democrats like Feinstein are willing to even talk about it. For years they didn’t even feel it necessary to address.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) lightly grabbed a reporter on the shoulder to demonstrate how Biden is and said simply: “If you’re looking for him to have his hand on shoulders there might be a lot of them. I just know Joe Biden, this is how he does it.”

Manchin blamed presidential politics for bringing the spotlight to Biden’s history around women, noting that Flores supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in 2016. He called attacks on Biden “totally wrong.”

Maybe when you’re trying to defend someone accused of inappropriate touching, touching a reporter isn’t the way to do it?

And no, it wasn’t just touching an arm or a shoulder.
