House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has jumped to former Vice President Joe Biden's defense following the mounting allegations of inappropriate behavior towards women. 

The Democratic House Speaker told reporters Biden should not be disqualified from 2020 presidential run because of two accusations of inappropriate behavior toward women.

When reporters asked Pelosi if the allegations should disqualify Biden's presidential run, she replied:

“I don’t think that this disqualifies him from being president. Not at all.”

But Pelosi refused to comment on whether the #MeToo claims could prevent Biden's possible White House run.

The news comes following recent reports of a former congressional aide to Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) accusing the former vice president of rubbing his nose against her during a Connecticut fundraiser ten years ago.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Biden’s second accuser, Amy Lappos, told The Courant.

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth,” she said.

Biden responded on Sunday to his first accuser, Nevada politician Lucy Flores, who claimed he kissed her without consent in 2014, saying e 'doesn't recall' and never thought he acted inappropriately.

Fores wrote in The Cut that the then Vice president 'slow kissed' the back of her head:

"I felt two hands on my shoulder," she wrote of the incident.

"I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair," she added.

Biden responded to the accusations:

“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately,” Biden wrote.

But Flores appeared on CNN’s The Lead, insisting Biden's treatment of woman was “disqualifying” for a presidential candidate, going against Nancy Pelosi's remarks.

Biden has been inundated with mounting video clips which seemingly shows him acting inappropriately toward woman and children.

“My point was never about his intentions, and they shouldn’t be about his intentions. It should be about the women on the receiving end of that behavior. This isn’t the first time, and it wasn’t the only incident where he was acting inappropriately with women."

But According to a report from The Guardian, Biden found support from the wife of former defense secretary Ash Carter claimed a viral picture depicting seemingly 'unwanted touching,' saying the viral photo used 'misleadingly.'

Carter discussed the viral photo in a medium post on Sunday:

“As the sole owner of my story,” Carter wrote.

“It is high time that I reclaim it – from strangers, Twitter, the pundits, and the late-night hosts. I won’t pretend that this will be the last of that picture, but it will be the last of other people speaking for me.”

But aside from Carter, Biden has been inundated with mounting video clips which seemingly shows him acting inappropriately toward woman and children.

His nickname "Creepy Uncle Joe," has been well known among thousands of internet MEMEs taken from screenshots of the footage.

But it remains to be seen if Biden's possible 2020 is already dead in the water, it would be foolish to assume anyone one from Biden's team did not anticipate there would be accusations against him.

In an opinion piece on Fox News by Laura Ingraham seems to echo the sentiment:

What's really happening here is that the 76-year-old Biden is now trying mightily to reconcile the old Democrat Party of Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy with the ever-shifting liberal PC codes of the present. Biden, though, has made a critical mistake. What has he done? He's been apologizing in an effort to court the far-left. And now, on the campaign trail, the candidates who would benefit the most from a Joe-less field -- they don't care about the apologies. They're pouncing.
