Biden: ‘Keep punching’ to curb domestic violence
Former Vice President Joe Biden had an ironic reply Wednesday night when asked how he would address sexual violence and harassment against women in today’s “MeToo” era.
Biden started off with a solid statement citing that he wrote the legislation in the original Violence Against Women bill.
“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely happens,” he said.
“So we have to change the culture, period,” Biden said. “And keep punching at it, and punching it and punching at it.”

His response received laughs from some in the Atlanta crowd during the fifth Democratic debate.
Biden, 77, appeared to miss the humor.
“No I really mean it,” he said. “It’s a gigantic issue.”
