“During his first sit-down TV interview after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign, the former vice president was pressed by the women of ‘The View’ about his behavior during the 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearing, his apologies to Anita Hill and accusations that he inappropriately touched several women.
As part of what The View co-host Joy Behar called the “Viewpology tour,” former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on the ABC talk show Friday morning in his first sit-down TV interview since announcing his presidential bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination. There he fielded questions from the all-women panel over his response to the Anita Hill controversy and allegations that he had inappropriately touched several women over the years.
During the interview, the former Delaware senator revealed why Hill was the only woman granted the chance to testify during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ 1991 confirmation hearing, while stopping just short of delivering an unprompted direct apology to her before drawing a line between allegations of his “inappropriate touching” and behavior that “approached” something more.”
