"They've shifted and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it, I get it".
He also attributed the complaints against him to the fact that "social norms are changing".
Biden has been criticized over the years for not respecting the personal space of women, including in a now infamous example during the swearing-in ceremony for former Defense Secretary Ash Carter when he stood behind Carter's wife, Stephanie, and held his face close to hers. "But today I want to talk about gestures of support and encouragement that I've made to women and some men that have made them uncomfortable", Biden said. "I understand that, and I've heard what these women are saying", he wrote on Twitter.
While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stated that former Vice President Joe Biden's behavior "may have been inappropriate, but it was not driven by malice or misconduct".

While he seems to hint at a potential run in the video, saying, "In the coming month, I expect to be talking about you about a whole lot of issues", Biden still hasn't formally announced his intentions to run as a Democratic candidate in 2020.
After a former Nevada politician, Lucy Flores, said last week that Biden made her feel "uneasy, gross, and confused" when he kissed the back of her head at a 2014 campaign event, Biden released a statement saying he believed he never acted inappropriately during his many years in public life.
When a second woman came forward on Monday claiming Biden made her feel uncomfortable at a 2009 CT fundraiser, his team pointed to his response from Sunday. "That's my responsibility and I will meet it".
Mr Biden also said he would be more careful about his actions in the future.
"I've worked my whole life to empower women", Biden said.
Biden did not specifically apologize in the video. By all accounts, many liberal voters are ready to embrace Biden's entrance into the race and won't blink an eye at these troubling suggestions, especially considering the charges that have left Trump unfazed.
