I don’t have the time to respond to all this, but I will REITERATE that I would have no problem with him if he had acknowledged that he made these women uncomfortable, learned from it, and was sincere in his apologies. Instead, he makes jokes. I never said that what he did is anywhere near what Trump has done, and I don’t have to compare the two to acknowledge that what Joe did is still wrong. That was the point of my entire essay. As a woman I can’t even imagine what must have been going through Lucy’s mind when the Vice President of the United States who she didn’t even know sniffed her hair and kissed her head!!! I don’t appreciate being called prudish and narrow minded because I find that gross and uncomfortable. That’s all I have to say.
