Former second lady Jill Biden said Wednesday night that she applauds the “courage” of the women who spoke up about her husband making them uncomfortable with his invasion of their personal space.

“It took a lot of courage for women to step forward and say, you know, ‘you’re in my space.’ Joe heard that,” she told Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah. “And it just won’t happen again.”

Biden has been accused of being too touchy with women in recent months, and eventually put out a video to address the comments.

“The social norms have begun to change and have shifted, and the boundaries of respecting personal space have been reset and I get it. I get it,” he said. “I hear what they’re saying — I understand it. And I’ll be much more mindful – that’s my responsibility. And I’ll meet it.”
