Joe Biden’s wife has now admitted even she was creeped out by his inappropriate touching and feeling.
Breitbart reported that former second lady Jill Biden writes in her forthcoming memoir that her husband and his family’s touchy-feely style made her feel “strange and uncomfortable” when the pair first began dating, according to the Daily Mail.
The report comes as several women have come forward to accuse former Vice President and possible 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden of inappropriate touching in recent days.
Many people are mostly alarmed over his inappropriate touching of children.

Just as Joe Biden faces increasing criticism for his inappropriate touching of women, his wife Jill has written a memoir telling how his public displays of affection like hugs, kisses and rubs have always been the norm for the former Vice President and his family.
‘He was always holding my hand, putting his arm around me, or brushing the hair from my face,’ when they began dating, the former Second Lady writes in her ‘deeply personal’ memoir Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself due out next month and exclusively obtained by DailyMailTV.
She admits that being thrust into a family of ‘huggers’ made her feel ‘strange and uncomfortable’, writing that Joe and his two young sons ‘never wanted to miss a chance to hold a hand, wrap their arms around each other, or give a kiss’.
She says that as an introvert, she ‘sometimes found all that affection draining’, but knew that it was the death of his first wife Neilia and their baby daughter Naomi that gave the family an understanding of ‘how precious every second could be’, which was displayed by ‘constantly touching’ and ‘being connected to each other’.
But it’s those same displays of affection that have led to eight women coming forward with their accounts of how Biden made them uncomfortable by squeezing their shoulders, touching their thighs, smelling their hair or kissing their head.
‘I realized that physical affection played an important role in his entire family,’ Jill writes. ‘Val [Joe’s sister] couldn’t walk by the boys without reaching out to touch their shoulders or brush their heads. Their parents stopped by often to shower the boys with kisses.’
Jills tells of Joe’s nighttime ritual with the boys where he’d gently scratch their backs and arms as they settled in to sleep. ‘With your fingernails!’, the boys would insist.
‘He did the same at Mass as a way of keeping them still,’ she writes.
That affection, as many of his supporters and defenders have said, is what makes Joe the politician he is.
