WATCH: Even Liberal SNL Mocks Biden’s Inappropriate Behavior
Joe Biden has a boundaries issue and he seems to think that it’s not a big deal. But so far seven women have come forward to complain about how he crossed the line and made them feel borderline assaulted. So SNL saw this as an opportunity and mocked the former VP and his hesitancy to announce that he is running in the upcoming election.
“Joe Biden was never Saturday Night Live’s most compelling character, but for years, he was part of the show’s satirical firmament. As performed by Jason Sudeikis, he was a garrulous, high-energy grandpa, a sharp contrast to Fred Armisen’s and Jay Pharoah’s sedate portrayals of President Barack Obama. Sudeikis traded on Biden’s public image as an animated, gaffe-prone throwback fond of folksy words like malarkey.”
Sudeikis took up the gauntlet again as they mocked the current controversy with Biden’s touchy nature.
“You guys know that I’m a tactile politician, right? I’m a hugger, I’m a kisser, and I’m a little bit of a sniffer,” Biden replied, after pulling Strong’s character into a big bear hug and touching Thompson’s character’s hair, and then going forehead-to-forehead with a consultant character played by Kate McKinnon. “One second, I’m just connecting, one second,” he explained. Cradling people’s faces, tickling palms, generally violating personal space—the sketch tried to capture Biden’s propensity for crossing boundaries and his own apparent cluelessness about the growing seriousness of the issue (as underlined by his equivocating nonapologies over it).”
Watch The Skit Below.
Biden recently tried to defend his actions and claimed that this is just how he connects to people. In a video, he vowed to try to keep people’s personal space in mind.
“I’ve always tried to make a human connection,” Biden says.
“That’s my responsibility, I think. I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘You can do this.’ And whether they’re women, men, young, old, it’s just the way I’ve always been. It’s the way I try to show them I care about them and I’m listening. And over the years, knowing what I’ve been through—the things that I’ve faced—I’ve found that scores, if not hundreds, of people have come up to me and reached out for solace and comfort: something, anything, that might help them get through the tragedy they’re going through. And so—it’s just who I am.
And yet: “Social norms have begun to change,” Biden allows later in the video. “They’ve shifted, and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it, I get it. I hear what they’re saying. I understand it. And I’ll be much more mindful―that’s my responsibility. That’s my responsibility, and I’ll meet it.”
We will see if he can keep his hands to himself especially if he decides to run in the 2020 presidential election.
