Whoopi, Joy Behar ‘Pissed Off’ at Woman Who Accused Biden, Say He’s Just a ‘Toucher’

WATCH: Hosts of ABC’s ‘The View’ Defend Biden on Unwanted Touching

Many people are weighing in on the allegations of inappropriate touching by former Vice President Joe Biden.

Two women have now come forward and said that his actions toward them made them “uncomfortable” and were “inappropriate.”

Lucy Flores says that he came up behind her during a campaign event, put his hands on her shoulders, moved in close, sniffed her hair and planted a slow kiss on the back of her head. Amy Lappos says that he pulled her behind the head in for a kiss and then rubbed noses with her at a fundraiser in a private home.

But there are also dozens of pictures/videos showing interactions between Biden and women/girls that involve similar acts to those described by Flores.

Despite that, the hosts of ‘The View’ all defended Biden, saying he had not acted inappropriately with them and then questioning the actions and motives of Flores for coming forward.

Whoopi Goldberg led the segment by saying, “Joe is a hands-on kind of guy” and saying she takes Flores “at her word” that she felt uncomfortable being touched from behind and kissed by Biden. However, Goldberg and the other hosts said this does not rise to the level of sexual assault and Biden was just being himself.

“It’s a long way from smelling your hair to grabbing your hoo-ha,” co-host Joy Behar said, using a slang term for vagina. “We all know Joe Biden. He’s been here. When I met him in Florida before he was vice president, he’s so friendly. He’s a close talker. He comes right up into your face and you’re thinking, ‘I hope my breath is good.'”

“It would be unfortunate if we got rid of everybody who’s just an affectionate kind of person,” Behar added.

Of course, it’s more than just being ‘affectionate” that’s being complained about.

Goldberg chided Flores, saying she should have said something at the time.

From Daily Wire:

“But it would have been nice if she turned to him and say, ‘You know what, I don’t really like this. Please don’t do this, Mr. Vice President. I’m not comfortable with this’ — something, because he’s standing right there,” she said, a line that prompted applause from the audience.

And when Sunny Hostin said that because of the controversy, Biden might now curb his overly familiar actions, “I don’t know if we’ll see anymore smelling of hair and kisses on the forehead,” Goldberg said she didn’t want that. “That pisses me off. I don’t want Joe to stop doing that.”

Meghan McCain agreed with Goldberg saying that Biden was that “certain kind” of politician that “loves people” like Bill Clinton and her father.

They then moved into questioning Flores’ motives because she previously worked for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and McCain noted that Flores had been seen at a Beto O’Rourke event. Sanders and O’Rourke were running second and third behind Biden in most polls before the touching issue hit the news.

Huntsman said she had been concerned about the #MeToo movement going too far and making normal interactions wrong.

“I always wonder when these things come out, what is the motive for this person? Is it simply to let people know ‘I was uncomfortable,’ which you could have done in private? Or is it because you want someone else to win and you want him to have doubts about actually announcing for the presidency?” she asked.

“I’ve had concerns about the #MeToo movement from the beginning, about getting to this place where you can’t have normal interactions with each other. This was uncomfortable and that’s her place. Are we going to get to a place where we can’t shake hands or hug each other?” she said.

So much for believing all women.
