Joe Biden was called out by Jon Stewart and the “Daily Show” for “groping” women back in 2015, video from the Comedy Central archives show.
In a segment that also featured then-show correspondent Samantha Bee, Stewart played multiple instances of Biden being hands-on with women and noted how all the touching might come back to bite him if he sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
“There’s been a rumor that Vice President Joe Biden may be gunning for the Democratic nomination in 2016, but before we talk about a promotion, I think we need to take a look at how he’s doing in his current position,” Stewart said before playing video footage of Biden placing his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, the wife of Obama Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
“Hey you seem tense. Is it the stress of me groping you for 28 straight seconds?” Stewart mocked. “Jesus, 28 seconds. That’s like three decades in groped-on-camera years.”
