Meghan McCain on Monday jumped to defend Joe Biden — who has been accused by two women of inappropriate touching.
McCain called the rumored 2020 hopeful “one of the truly decent and compassionate men in all of American politics.”
“He has helped me through my father’s diagnosis, treatment and ultimate passing more than anyone of my father’s friends combined,” McCain tweeted.
Her father, the late Arizona Sen. John McCain died in August of brain cancer.
“The View” co-host added: “I wish there was more empathy from our politicians not less.”
Biden, 76, was accused on Monday of grabbing a woman by the head and rubbing noses during a 2009 political fundraiser. The woman, Amy Lappos, said the bizarre encounter “wasn’t sexual” but that it crossed a line.
Former Nevada politician Lucy Flores also recently recalled a 2014 incident where Biden made her feel “gross” when he grabbed her shoulders from behind and kissed her hair during a campaign event.
The ex-Vice President has a history of being overtly touchy-feely with women.
