Democrats have been conflicted about accusations against Joe Biden, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein is fully in the corner of the former veep and potential 2020 presidential candidate:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein defends Joe Biden, on the allegations he‚Äôs facing:
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs a warm, tactile person. He reaches out and touches, like this and that ‚ÄĒ it‚Äôs hardly sexy. It‚Äôs not his intention and it‚Äôs a new thing that people have been affronted by it.‚ÄĚ

Biden‚Äôs style is ‚Äúhardly sexy,‚ÄĚ said Feinstein. But according to reporters, Feinstein, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, helped describe (and demonstrate apparently) why Biden‚Äôs close, personal style isn‚Äôt a problem:
Manchin and Feinstein acted out Biden‚Äôs demeanor to show it‚Äôs not inappropriate.
Feinstein: ‚ÄúHe reaches out and he touches and it's like this and that. It's hardly sexy‚ÄĚ
Manchin: ‚ÄúIf you‚Äôre looking for him to have his hand on shoulders there might be a lot of them‚ÄĚ

If Biden decides to run for president, he won‚Äôt be without his defenders on this issue.
Oh my God. THEY ACTED IT OUT.

Maybe the morning shows should get Feinstein and Manchin on to demonstrate why Biden‚Äôs behavior has been completely appropriate in their opinion.
