GOP senator addresses allegations against Joe Biden: ‘This is no country for creepy old men’

One of the Senate's most quotable Republicans isn't mincing words when it comes to the #MeToo controversy currently surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden.

In a video published by CBS news, Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said that America "is no country for creepy old men" when asked about the multiple allegations of inappropriate conduct against the potential 2020 contender.

Here's how Kennedy responded when asked if Biden's behavior "cross[ed] the line into being creepy":

"I've said this before: Just because you're accused of something doesn't mean you're guilty of it. This is America, and you do have a right to due process," Kennedy answered. "On the other hand, this is no country for creepy old men, and it needs to stop."

"Do I consider it inappropriate to smell someone's hair? To get so close that I smell their hair?" the Louisiana senator continued. "Yes! I mean, duh!"

"Somebody gets close enough to smell my hair, they may get to smell my hair but they may lose some teeth," he concluded. "Leaning in and smelling a guy's hair or a woman's hair is a little bit too close for my judgment."

So far, Biden, whose handsy history has received a pass from the legacy media for years, has been accused of touching multiple women inappropriately.

Former Nevada Democratic lawmaker Lucy Flores accused the former VP of inappropriately touching and kissing her at a political rally while another says he tried to "rub noses" with her at a 2009 fundraiser. Two more women leveled accusations Tuesday.
