“Joe Biden is one of the truly decent and compassionate men in all of American politics,” McCain said in a tweet on Monday night.

“He has helped me through my fathers diagnosis, treatment and ultimate passing more than anyone of my fathers friends combined,” "The View" co-host continued. “I wish there was more empathy from our politicians not less.”

Hours before McCain’s remarks, a woman from Connecticut, Amy Lappos, alleged Biden inappropriately touched her and rubbed noses with her during a political fundraiser in Greenwich in 2009.

Lappos, who was a congressional aide to Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) at the time, said Biden’s contact “wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head.”

"He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth,” she told the Hartford Courant.

Lappos came forward with her story days after former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores (D) said that Biden had inappropriately touched and kissed her at a campaign rally supporting her bid for lieutenant governor in 2014.

Flores said Biden had put his hands on her shoulders, sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head.

Biden on Sunday responded to Flores’s accusation.

"In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately,” he said. 

"If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention," he added.
