As Twitchy reported, Lucy Flores (and now at least two other women) went public with her story about how Joe Biden’s unsolicited hair-sniffing and neck-kissing made her very uncomfortable. One of Biden’s accusers said he touched her inappropriately backstage at an It’s On Us event.

Biden, now being woke, said he didn’t recall the Flores incident but believed she was right to come forward with her story.

And now Alyssa Milano has jumped into the fray and is doing a lot of mindreading: she believes that Biden’s intent has never been to make anyone uncomfortable … but we thought it was the woman’s reaction that mattered, not the man’s intent. And oh yeah, she also believes women like Flores should come forward with their stories — although “we cannot assume all women’s experiences are the same.”

So we sort of believe women now? We don’t know; you figure it out:

We like how Milano reminds us that It’s On Us showed us that college athletes and fraternity brothers are often left out of the conversation: kind of like the Duke lacrosse players, and the UVA fraternity featured in Rolling Stone’s campus rape hoax. Can those men be part of the conversation now, or are we still pretending due process isn’t a thing?

We have a fabulous prize for whoever can translate this sentence into plain English: “… just as we must believe women that decide to come forward, we cannot assume all women’s experiences are the same.”

What?

Yeah, Joe Biden’s not a creep who makes women feel uncomfortable — Alyssa Milano’s met him and can vouch for him, OK?

What a joke.
