When multiple women accused then-candidate Joe Biden of inappropriate contact in the spring of 2019 during the early stages of the presidential race, he released an inappropriate video apology in which he called the problem is that the “gesture of support and encouragement” has been misinterpreted.
He promised to be “much more mindful of respecting personal space”.
“Social norms have begun to change. They have changed,” Biden said in a video recorded on a mobile phone.
“And the boundaries of protecting personal space have been re-established. And I understand. I got it. I hear what they are saying. I understand.”
Social norms are changing. I get that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. For me, politics has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. It is my responsibility and I will respond. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts

Spoiler alert: He doesn’t get it.
Well, we might not have seen so many terrifying breaches of personal space during the campaign if only because, most of them, we were all required to wear face coverings and stand six feet apart. foot. During the first few months of the new administration, the newly minted president was also on his best behavior.
However, as certain as he was caught repeatedly on video doing what he was about to apologize for in April 2019, he is still there in the White House.

Thankfully, some people don’t. I’m not talking about the mainstream media; they couldn’t care more. I’m talking about a little girl caught on camera this week who is resisting the president’s advances on her personal space.
Here’s a shot of a young woman without it during the annual Thanksgiving turkey amnesty at the White House on Friday:

The girl was clearly scared of Uncle Joe, but that didn’t stop him from moving closer, pointing at her—at which point, she swatted his hand away.
That exchange did not have much of an impact in the media coverage of Peanut Butter and Thach’s pardon.
(Mariana Alfaro took the lead The Washington Post’s It was Peanut Butter and Jelly time at the White House. That meme 20 years old next year, so keep it fresh, WaPo. Do not have one “Gettin ‘Jiggy Wit It“Can you also refer?)
“Turkey is the infrastructure,” Biden joked. “Peanut butter and jelly will help rebuild Butterball.”
See? Biden’s infrastructure plan is called Build back better, gedit? Ho, ho. For whatever reason, none of his screenwriters saw fit to work on a story about how Peanut Butter and Jelly wasn’t forgiven out of compassion but because, runaway inflation here to stay, Biden needs them to lay and hatch as many turkeys as possible so the White House staff can afford Thanksgiving next year.
Not that one would expect front-page news from Mariana Alfaro or the dreaded Uncle Joe’s post to reappear during the turkey pardon.
(This is, after all, a stupid and naive Beltway moth so despised by this writer that I personally wrote a 10,000-word paragraph praising the first president – Democrat or Republican – who killed, spat, and dressed turkeys in front of a horrifying White House swimming pool.)
Without that, however, you’ll get stupid and corny news about Biden’s stupid and corny jokes that at a glance another little incident proves Biden hasn’t really “got his way back.” ” when he said he would be “much more mindful about respecting personal space.”
And there’s good reason to suspect he never will.
For an update on Biden’s history, last year Donald Trump Jr. posted a compilation video of “Joe Biden’s scariest hits”. There’s no shortage of them.
This kind of thing shouldn’t be hard for the president to stop unless, in his heart, he can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want him to be. abnormal feelings – even small children – if that whimsy strikes him.
That seems to be the underlying problem. Since he was just 30 years old and President Richard Nixon was in the White House, Joe Biden has been one of the most powerful men in American political life. Who will not want him in their personal space, he seems to be saying? He doesn’t mean anything rude, he just likes to show “gestures of support and encouragement”. Are not everyone Want that from the president?
On Friday, the little girl in question wasn’t young enough to know the man’s office was making a gesture of “support and encouragement,” and she gave him a definitive answer. Maybe he’ll “get it” by now. However, one person has doubts.
