Stephanie Carter, the woman who appeared to be uncomfortable in a viral photo with former Vice President Joe Biden, is defending him against accusations of misconduct.

Carter, wife of former defense secretary Ash Carter, says the viral photos of Biden appearing to touch her inappropriately are "misleading."

Carter defended Biden after Nevada politician Lucy Flores accused Biden of kissing her inappropriately during a campaign stop in 2014.

In a blog post on Medium.com on Sunday, Carter described what took place in her viral photo - even though her body language told a different story.

"After the swearing-in, as Ash was giving remarks, [Biden] leaned in to tell me 'thank you for letting him do this' and kept his hands on my shoulders as a means of offering his support," Carter wrote. "But a still shot taken from a video - misleadingly extracted from what was a longer moment between close friends - sent out in a snarky tweet - came to be the lasting image of that day."

Ash Carter was appointed defense secretary in 2015 by former President Barack Obama. The Carters remain good friends with the Obamas.

In a previous incident in 2014, Flores says Biden, who was behind her, put his hands on her shoulders, sniffed her hair and planted an unwanted kiss on top of her head.

Her claims sparked a furious Twitter debate on whether Biden should enter into the 2020 presidential race.

Several hash tags including #CreepyJoeBiden were trending on Twitter.com as users posted old videos of Biden touching little girls and grown women inappropriately.

Biden denies touching anyone inappropriately. If he did, he says, it was his way of expressing "affection". He didn't recall the incident that Flores described.

In one disturbing video, Biden is seen pinching the chest of a minor child who reacts by moving away from his hand. In another video, he lingers too closely to another child who is clearly uncomfortable. She turns her face when he goes in for an unwanted kiss.

    As well.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe this happened the way she said, or maybe it didn't. It's basically he said/she said at this point. But the fact that she's a hardcore Bernie Sanders supporter makes me question this a little bit.

  • Mielle Downey

    Creepy Joe is such a pervert. Just looking at the videos makes my skin crawl..That little girl was moving away from his hand and no one wants his geriatric kisses.

  • brooklyn23

    The video is disturbing

    My husband does this and whispers, I am about toooo... you.

    This is Nasty Joe

  • Renee26

    The photo is of Carter and she says it was a misleading photo

    What ever happened to the Flores case?? Nothing oh ok .... Fake news

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I saw the compilation of Joe and his creepiness and couldn't make it through the whole video. He's just creepy, and by creepy I mean molester creepy.

  • Soon2BWife

    Well, most women are taught inappropriate touch and even if they aren’t we know what doesn’t feel right. Even though some of these young ladies may have been too young to articulate that it made them uncomfortable or tell him to stop, their body language tells it all. It is very uncomfortable to watch.

  • Mielle Downey

    I would n't trust him with my female cat. he is to touchy feely

  • MJF

    Being a public figure you just shouldn't do certain things PUBLICLY. He had no right leaning in, holding someone's shoulders, looks mighty, mighty personal to me........

  • T Willis

    A director that I work with is exactly like Biden, with the touching/affection lol smh. I just told my mom the other day that it’s only a matter of time before the director is fired for harassment ?. Some moments of “affection” shouldn’t be performed at all ?????

  • Meme

    Don t know if it's been mentioned already but is Omari Hardwick a tad slow that hug he gave Beyonce?? and the kisses i cringed

  • currvalicious

    Joe Biden I don't feel is a creep. He's hands on, but not in a creepy way. I don't feel he means any harm.

  • Mielle Downey

    Would you put your female relative in arms way or daughter to test your theory?

  • Gloria

    He’s been a creep. I’ve said this in past posts but folks ain’t tryna hear about his predatory ways because “hE’s ObaMa’s friend.” ?????

  • MJF

    LOL, I had second hand embarrassment for him, the first kiss cool but the second kiss appeared more friendly than the first. I was mortified lolll but hey maybe he was nervous, who knows

  • Gloria

    Did you see the beehive in his comments on Instagram? They are not playing with him

  • SouthsideServesHerWell

    Joe Biden is a creepy ole geezer. Lol... One of those touchy-feel type of men. Ugh....The thought is cringe worthy!

  • Meme

    Must have been nerves did you see Beys face after the whole ordeal lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    People don't generally molest or feel people up in public with the media and cameras right in front of them, so I don't doubt that Joe didn't believe he was doing anything inappropriate. Some people are just touchy-freely like that. Still, somebody needs to let him know he should be careful with that and keep his distance from now on, just to be on the safe side.

  • Meme

    Not really i did see a pic of a bewildered dog with the same haircut as his wife (she has that long fringe over one eye)and some funny comment someone made had me cracking up

  • MJF

    LOL, she looked uncomfortable, like dude you are weird...

  • Bonita

    Creepy Biden's name has come up numerous times regarding politicians who are involved in these underground pedophile rings.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    sHE DOES NOT LOOKED UNCOMFORTABLE.
    SHE LOOKS LIKE, YEAH, I GOT IT LIKE THAT "

  • Mielle Downey

    Someone needed to slap the piss out of Joe to send a clear message to him that your touches and kisses are not wanted.Men like him who are in a position of power know exactly what they are doing and it;s like trill seeking for them. they wanna see how far they can push the envelope. Once he gets the taste slapped out of his. mouth in public he will get the trill knocked out of him.

  • Mielle Downey

    That child looks very uncomfortable and her body language is speaking volumes

  • iWasteTime

    THE CURRENT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS CREEPY.
    Has 10 or more woman who have accused him of sexual misconduct. Hangs with sex workers and their pimps.
    Likes to grab women by the pussy and kiss them.
    Has a weird sexual fascination with his daughter.
    NO ONE SHOULD DROP OUT OF ANYTHING!

  • Mielle Downey

    Joe is in the same boat as Rkelly. The only difference is Black people don't see the difference because he is white. If Joe said to some black family I am going to groom your Daughter they would be head over heals. smh

  • DeJeri

    UPVOTES to the tenth power ^^^^^^
    If the current president can do it then it's game on

  • Mielle Downey

    He don't have a RKelly creep compilation circulating the internet. CreepyJoe been a perv since way back.

  • Ryan

    Compared to the current president who's hired hookers and cheated on his wife while she was pregnant I don't give a FUUUUCCCCC.

  • Parent

    Joe Biden is a predator. I would not be standing there letting some old man grope my daughter.

  • Mielle Downey

    Jfk hired hookers and had Marilyn Monroe on Standby to Grab her by the ... Slick Willy was unknown rapist and got impeached for it? Should I name more democrats finest?

  • Parent

    At least he had the decency to pay up and not force himself on them.

  • Ryan

    That's one of the dumbest - nevermind.

  • Mielle Downey

    Joey Perv is just another Democrat Pervert from a long line of them..

  • Parent

    Oh yea because forcible touching and rape is the same as consensual. Get out of here!

  • Ryan

    Aaaaannd blocked.

  • Parent

    Have a good day!

  • Mielle Downey

    Joe Biden does it for the camera. Hide ya kids and ya wife from this pervert.

  • Parent

    Yes imagine what he does when the cameras aren't on.

  • WinterIsComing

    Kremlin Klan is in full effect in here

  • iWasteTime

    Decency to pay a hooker .... lolol

  • Parent

    You do know prostitution is legal in some places.

  • Sha

    Right

  • Parent

    You never heard of sex workers?

  • Mielle Downey

    I don't want to he just made my skin crawl looking at the compliation on CNN.

  • Miss Thang

    I think he doesn’t mean any harm but someone needs to tell him that some of those touches may make some people feel uncomfortable. When I meet children I say hi, introduce myself and smile and then I may compliment something about them and shake their hand. You have to respect physical boundaries. Most kids don’t have the confidence or vocabulary to say no.

  • Miss Thang

    Hookers are consenting adults.

  • Miss Thang

    Your opinion is politically motivated therefore null and void.

  • Cheese eggs

    "Had the decency"? Jesus be a fence

  • Parent

    Any grown man who thinks he can put hands and caress on a little girl that is not his daughter or granddaughter is a predator. In my eyes anyway.

  • Cheese eggs

    Jeffery Epstein....trumps friend

  • Parent

    So you have never frequented a strip club or Vegas?

  • Cheese eggs

    In the same boat a rkelly? Repubs are really out in force this good Monday morning. Clearly forgetting that their leader said " grab them by the pumpum " and STILL got elected...

  • freelancepimp .

    Libs are going to consume themselves. I don't think Joe is predator or has anything sexual in mind. It's sad that when a man shows any type of affection there are people pouncing to pervert his intent. Hell it might even be uncomfortable but it doesn't mean its sexual and or perverted. Some people don't like full hugs but that doesn't mean that the person who did it meant for it to be sexual. It was just a minor invasion of space that can be corrected with the slightest of communication. Everyone doesn't have to be a grand victim.

  • Cheese eggs

    Bless your heart Chile.

  • freelancepimp .

    And truth is the child might have been uncomfortable, but that doesn't mean Joe's intent was perverted or make the child uncomfortable.

  • Parent

    Okay delusional.

  • tintin

    Stephanie is sitting on that dack.

  • Cheese eggs

    ?...glorrray

  • Soda

    On a previous post you said don't speak ill of the dead yet here you are doing just that. Guess dead Democrats don't matter.

  • Cheese eggs

    Man ....those repub operatives are out in force this morning. They must be really worried about ol Joe's candidacy

  • AmericanDream

    Old joe is old news . In 1988 this man was already running for President . Geez !

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    she does look a little uncomfortable, but he may not have meant to come off as creepy, Lol (not in full view of the media anyway). politicians can be touchy feely sometimes. i believe they think it makes them seem more 'accessible' and down to earth. i ran into former Senator (Va) John Warner at the nursery this weekend. he's old as Moses, but still made a point of making small talk with me about my flower selections *shrug* he's used to being a 'public figure' and used to the practice of making the 'little people' feel acknowledged. *shrug*

  • Parent

    Well for one, I would not want or allow a man I never met touching/caressing my hair, shoulder, neck, back, torso, period. I am 37 years old. I would also not want a strange man doing the same to my 13 year old daughter. I would spaz on his ass but it wouldn't even get to that.

  • smartchickfl

    Yeah..no. That was a bit uncomfortable to watch. They don't have anybody with enough momentum to take cheeto out. Oh welp.

  • Bossy704

    Joe is not a perv he's just overly affectionate not realizing he is creeping people out. Maybe one of the parents should say something? He kisses his kids in the mouth too - a lot of men do.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This is the beginning of the systematic tear down of one of the stronger opposition against Trump..

  • Mielle Downey

    Yes and this is why we have s many dysfunctional pervs like Rkelly in the black community. The neighbourhood perv means well butt..Then your daughter is in rehab because you were to slow to wake and smell what Joe was doing.

  • Mielle Downey

    Liberals needs their children checked if they think Joe is just affectionate.

  • Mielle Downey

    Nipsy wasn't out here felling up people wives an kids on camera. and we are speaking fact about JFK there is documentation and the files were unsealed. No one is defaming him or speaking ill like yourself so check yourself

  • Lady_Elle

    Boy does this look all kinds of wrong!
    But... at least he did not BRAG about grabbing women by the P-ssy!

  • Lady_Elle

    45 is in the white house... he too is a Pervert.

  • Phillybruh

    This was a calculated move to get this answered and out of the way before he announces.

  • Lady_Elle

    I agree!

  • Phillybruh

    I know right at the Pizza shop that was run by the Clinton foundation....lol

  • Phillybruh

    Everyone is not a predator.

  • freelancepimp .

    Extra...

  • Soda

    Lol! Hypocrite. You are a ball of confusion.

  • January Jones

    Ole Pedo Joe. I don't trust ANY politicians

  • Vegas1989

    I agree with you..But the video looks creepy. He is just affectionate. But I will tell Joe to speak to me with his hands to the side please sir.

  • Eileen

    nasty!

  • Mielle Downey

    YOU ARE UT OF ORDER !!!! CAVE BEAST DON'Y COUNT!!! BROTHER MAN DO

  • Miss Thang

    I’m a democrat and I know Trump will win again lol

  • Cheese eggs

    And repub conservatives need to head on over to a therapist for supporting everything that is trump and his crime family

  • Cheese eggs

    Probably ......because people/ Americans are stupid.

  • Mielle Downey

    LIKE THE RUSSIA THING WITH NO BUN?

  • Lolly Asher

    ha!

  • Lolly Asher

    More people need to see that video. Hide your daughters hide your wife!

  • Li-Wright

    I'm a conspiracy theorist and the Lopez woman is probably a "paid" antagonist. Could it be the DNC who doesn't want Joe to run; could it be Bernie? could it be Steve Bannon or Roger Stone who dug her up from a rock to go on TV and make the 4-year old claims? The dirt has started already.
    What pray tell will they find on Elizabeth Warren and Beto O'rourke to name a few.
    The dirt has started.

  • Li-Wright

    Nope it doesn't look wrong. That's just the way he shows approval or fondness. People do it differently. I do it differently, you do it differently. You may kiss someone on the cheek; I get a fist bump. Joe does it his way.
    Anywho, the woman who claimed it made her feel Uneasy, waited 4 years to say it? Why didn't she say it in 2016 when he was thinking of running, or the year after? She's full of bs.

  • Li-Wright

    Everybody shows their fondness differently. I don't see anything wrong. And if it is wrong, just turn around and say don't do that....or do it in private.

  • Marlika

    Old Joe is just like every man with power and money. They like to keep their hands in the cookie jar.

  • Sassie

    But Trump can grab pussies and still be elected president. Ok.

  • Logan Roberts

    Men are pigs, so no surprise here.

  • Mielle Downey

    Rkellynis loved by the black community. Do we have some time of sic relationship with Pervs. Is this normal? I cant wait till this pervert shit comes rolling out the closet. You a re really kapping for a colonizer cave beast pervert?

  • Shenanigans1

    She’s defending him now but her eyes scream “get the eff off me right now” to me.

  • Cheese eggs

    Have you read the report boo? How much are they paying you? Must be good money

  • Mielle Downey

    Where is the evidence your handlers promised. The wide mouth maxi pad say that the collusion with the Kremlin was in plain site. The only thing in pliant site was the misspelled button hilda beast the woodland troll gave Putin when she was in office and the uranium one she gave them plus her husband was paid by Putin to speak. So there is you collision burger.

  • Cheese eggs

    Yeah, you're on the payroll. Typical response when in doubt...Hillary and Hillary ain't president. Frump is. So.......again.....have you and or your keepers read the report? Never mind...a federal judge has ruled that the judiciary committee maybe entitled to the un redacted report. So I'll wait. You made your money today hunny? bye

  • Mielle Downey

    Hillary is the standard you set and the shit you got handed. She is a factor since she was your liberal best. A failed secretary of state who used hammered destroy cell phones and blechbit to erase her sever. She was you best and it was a tragedy. I like to bring it up to remind you of the guttersnipes the Democrats out uo for president. Hilary was more hood than the gangsters who call it home. Take that in your pipe and smoke it. So glad we missed that bullshit.

  • Lady_Elle

    It absolutely does look wrong!
    This is not his wife or girlfriend!
    Based on that totally inappropriate behavior.

    It does not matter how affectionate you are in your private life when dealing with others in business.

    I have had men make me feel uneasy in the workplace.
    I never complained... but I made sure that I did not place myself in positions that might give them opportunity to do so again!

    I don't know if this woman complained or not.... so I did not comment on that!

  • TransMichelle

    This was Odumba's vice president. Can you imagine what would have happened if this had been Vice President Pence? Good lawd I hate to imagine it. Mostly all from the Odumba era think that they are above reproach. From Odumba scheming with his cohorts like Lynch, Comey, and Mueller to overthrow a sitting president to PIzzagate and lighting up the white house in the homosexual flag. Odumba's administration is the most perverted in history. [img]https://media2.giphy.com/media/129vfVq7yzAb9m/giphy.gif[/img]

  • Paula

    Shenanigans1 You called it Right On the Money. That shit does look CREEPY AS HELL and the WOMEN & LIL GIRLS FACES & BODY LANGUAGE SHOW IT ALL. NO BUENO JOE BIDEN. Get help.

  • Paula

    Na Li-Wright. Joe Biden has some deep seeded issues that include inappropriate touching of women & young girls. He has to know and feel these women and girls body language and the way they are trying to get loose from his grip. And the pulling the lil girls hair back, WTF was that shit. Notice all the smiling mams & papas that are just so proud that Joe Biden fondled their BABY! Wake UP MFR's.

  • Jack Blakk

    I was at home in Brasil and when Biden was running against Barry for the Democratic nomination he was using all kinds of racial slurs against Barry and then he pulled a power move to become his Vice President. I can't believe African-Americans forgot about that and accepted him, talk about selective memory!

  • Jack Blakk

    Kelly's not loved by the black community deep down inside everybody knows there's sick, lazy and money hungry people involved in this crap!

  • Mielle Downey

    Well morally bankrupt Whoppie Goldberg is a perfect example of why the perverts are loved by the black community and protected. She wants the perverts to continue to spread their unsolicited warmth to wives and children.

  • Look@m3

    Nah Bruh....I don't like it! nope...nada aint working for me. Next candidate!!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Now I love me some Biden but this right here is a problem. This is one touchy feely don't go to his house alone type of guy. I mean what is his deal? He needs more people to coach his ass to keep his hands to himself. His family would be an complete fool to leave ANY girl alone with him. I can't believe I am just seeing this.

  • Maxx

    Thank you for saying this. People are so afraid of everything now a days, if you don't like what they like, don't walk like they walk, don't talk like they talk, or don't look like they think you should look it's a damn problem. He is a touchy feely man. It shows in all the videos he is in. If you are uncomfortable that is your issue & you have the right to address it, but do not label this man in such a grotesque way without any proof of his intentions.

  • Mind Yo Business

    Oh he bold with it too. What he does behind close doors gotta be worse. He's a straight perv. Hang it up Ol Joe

  • mialaoyin

    Somebody hand these files over to Kelly's attorney ..for .There next time he is on stage twirling white little girls hair serenading them.
