Three More Women Come Out Against Biden, and They’re Not Happy with His Fake ‘Apology’

WATCH: Joe Biden’s statement on personal space

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s attempt to stem the tide of accusations by putting out a video and saying he will be more aware of shifting ‘societal norms’ and he ‘gets it’ is not stemming the tide of people coming forward to tell about their own uncomfortable interactions with him.

Three more women have come forward, now bringing the women calling Biden out on in appropriate touching to seven.

From Daily Wire:

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Vail Kohnert-Yount says that while she served as a White House intern in the spring of 2013, Biden did something that “shocked” her. Kohnert-Yount told the Post that one day while attempting to exit the West Wing basement, Biden entered. She was asked to step aside, which she did, but then Biden walked up to her to introduce himself and shake her hand.

“He then put his hand on the back of my head and pressed his forehead to my forehead while he talked to me,” she told the Post in a statement. “I was so shocked that it was hard to focus on what he was saying. I remember he told me I was a ‘pretty girl.'”

Though Kohnert-Yount said she didn’t feel that Biden’s intentions were sexual, “[I]t was the kind of inappropriate behavior that makes many women feel uncomfortable and unequal in the workplace.”

Sofie Karasek had a similar experience in 2016 when she appeared with other sexual assault survivors at the Oscars.

When Karasek shared with Biden the story of a college student who committed suicide after being sexually assaulted, “Biden responded by clasping her hands and leaning down to place his forehead against hers, a moment captured in a widely circulated photograph,” the Post reports.

While she “appreciated Biden’s support,” the Post states, she also “felt awkward and uncomfortable that his gesture had left their faces suddenly inches apart.” The action left her stunned and was an example of the vice president “crossing the boundary into her personal space at a sensitive moment,” the Post reports.

Ally Coll who works with a non-profit to prevent sexual harassment, said she was working as a Democratic staffer in 2008 when Biden squeezed her shoulders, complimented her and held her “for a beat too long.” “There’s been a lack of understanding about the way that power can turn something that might seem innocuous into something that can make somebody feel uncomfortable,” said Coll.

According to The Hill, she added that Biden’s video represented “a continued lack of understanding about why these stories are being told and their relevance in the #MeToo era.”

While Biden said he now “gets it,” he did not apologize in his video to any of the women.

C-Span actually captured what looked like an uncomfortable encounter with the young woman pulling away from Biden in 2007.

That’s a a clip from a longer C-Span segment where in the first minute and a half, Biden approaches the young woman he met once before in front of her father, cups her chin, compliments her eyes, says he can see how she won “Queen’ in a contest after father says so and rubs her shoulder.
