Lucy Flores’ accusation of improper touching has marred Joe Biden’s potential presidential run. Two other women have also accused Biden of making them feel uncomfortable during interactions. The former Vice President felt compelled to issue an apology and a promise to modify his behavior.
Donald Trump Jr., who frequently uses his social media accounts to mock Democrats, quickly seized on Biden’s apology video. The president’s son retweeted a doctored video that shows Biden massaging his own shoulders as he spoke.
Trump Jr. shared the video without comment. The original poster, though, had written, ““Noooooooo Joe, NOT DURING THE APOLOGY!”

The president has also commented on Biden’s situation with a mixture of sympathy and glee.Trump blamed Democratic socialists for the former VP’s issues. He said to diners at a campaign fundraiser:
“It looks like the only non-, sort of heavy socialist, he is being taken care of pretty well by the socialists. They got to him. Our former vice president. I was going to call him — I don’t know him well. I was gonna say, ‘Welcome to the world, Joe. Are you having a good time, Joe?’”
Biden has yet to announce whether or not he will seek the Democratic nomination for 2020.
