‘Saturday Night Live’ mocks Biden over allegations of inappropriate touching

“Saturday Night Live” took aim at allegations of inappropriate touching against former Vice President Joe Biden in its latest episode.

Former cast member Jason Sudeikis returned to play the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate in a sensitivity training session in the show’s cold open.

He then pulls Kate McKinnon, playing a consultant, close.

“Ideally, when you meet a female stranger for the first time, there would be no kisses or hugs of any kind,” she said.

“But that’s a human connection. That’s my whole thing,” he responds.

After discussing how to properly greet women and interact with potential female voters, McKinnon asks Sudeikis if he’s learned anything.

“Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, not really, no,” he replies. “The important thing, I think, is that I’m listening, I hear you, and I feel you. I feel you. OK? So, come on. Let’s hug it out, America. What do you say? ‘Biden and some woman in 2020,’ right? We can do this!”

Biden on Friday made his first public appearance since several women accused him of inappropriate touching in the past, saying he’s sorry he didn’t understand more at the time.

“The fact of the matter is I made it clear that if I made anyone feel [uncomfortable], I feel badly about that. It was never my intention. Ever,” Biden said.

“I’m sorry I didn’t understand more,” Biden told reporters following a speech to a gathering of union workers.

“I’m not sorry for any of my intentions. I’m not sorry for anything that I have ever done,” he added. “I have never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman. So that’s not the reputation I’ve had since I was in high school, for God’s sake.”
