In a pair of posts online, Donald Trump Jr. explained that he tried to upload a video of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden inappropriately touching and sniffing people but that the video was too lengthy.
To fit Twitter’s formatting, Trump Jr. uploaded the video into two parts: two 4-minute clips of Biden groping or otherwise inappropriately touching women and girls of all ages.
“There’s NOTHING CREEPY at all about how Joe Biden interacts with the kids in this 4+ min long video,” he said in the first tweet. “All the touching & hair sniffing is TOTALLY APPROPRIATE & 100% NORMAL. Everyone does it!”
“I’m a bad person for mocking him & thinking it’s disgusting!!” the president’s son continued.
In a second tweet, Trump Jr. said: “There are SO MANY different clips of Joe Biden bizarrely & inappropriately sniffing hair & getting touchy with young girls that Twitter made me break up this 4 min comp into two separate videos.”
“Does anyone really think this is normal behavior from Joe!???” he asked.

Trump Jr. is far from the only one who has drawn attention to Biden’s tendency to touch, sniff, or play with people’s hair.
Comedians John Stewart and Samantha Bee drew up a skit making fun of the former vice president.

Biden is currently facing an accusation of sexual assault from former staffer Tara Reade, who previously worked in Biden’s Senate office.
Democrats are brushing the accusation, however, calling his explanation “sufficient.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer says it is time to move on from the Tara Reade sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden:

During an interview on Thursday with MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Biden addressed the allegations against him by saying he does not even remember Reade.
He added (via Breitbart):
But look, let me get something clear. When a woman makes a claim that she has been harassed or abused — and this claim has changed, as it’s gone on — but harassed or abused, she should be taken seriously. She should come forward, share her story, she should be taken seriously, and it should be thoroughly vetted. And in every case, what matters is the truth. Truth is what matters. And the truth of the case is, nothing like this ever, ever happened. She has a right to be heard, but then it should be vetted, and the truth ultimately matters. And I give you my word, it never, ever happened.
According to the report, Biden then answered a question on whether or not the accusation should change the way people should vote in the 2020 election.
“Well, I think they should vote their heart, and if they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me,” Biden responded. “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
“The fact is that, look at Tara Reade’s story. It changes considerably,” he claimed. “And so — but, I don’t want to question her motive. I don’t want to question anything, other than to say, the truth matters. This is being vetted. It’s been vetted. They went, and people interviewed scores of my employees over my whole career. This is just totally, thoroughly, completely out of character, and the idea that in a public place, in a hallway, I would assault a woman. … I promise you, it never happened. It should be vetted. She should be thoroughly looked at, and whether or not these happened, look at the story, follow the storyline, and determine whether there’s any truth to it, and there is no truth to it. I promise you.”
