President Trump appeared to mock Joe Biden on Thursday by tweeting a doctored video of the former vice president addressing a series of misconduct allegations leveled against him.
The tweet came just hours after his son, Donald Trump Jr., retweeted a 15-second mock clip of Biden's apology that featured an image of the ex-vice president lurking in the background, eventually placing his hands on his own shoulders and face in the back of his head. The image used for the faux Biden is from the viral photo of him placing his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, the wife of former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter.

Trump also spoke about the Biden scandal on Tuesday saying the only non-socialist is being attacked by the other socialists.
The photographs of Biden and Carter made their way back into the public eye following recent claims of Biden's inappropriate behavior toward women. Carter wrote a post on Medium defending Biden and saying the photos were “misleading.”
Biden posted a video on Wednesday to social media in which he acknowledged his tendency toward physical displays of affection and encouragement have made some women uncomfortable. In it, he also promised to be “much more mindful” of respecting personal space.
