Addressing accusations he may have behaved inappropriately with women, former Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Friday that “I’m not sorry for anything that I have ever done.”

Asked by a reporter if he is sorry for his behavior with women, and if he would say so directly to women who have claimed he treated them inappropriately, Biden said:

“I'm sorry I didn't understand more. I'm not sorry for any of my intentions. I'm not sorry for anything that I have ever done. I've never been disrespectful, intentionally, to a man or a woman. That's not the reputation I've had since I was in high school, for God's sake.”

Biden: “Look. It is important that I and everyone else is aware that any woman or man who feels uncomfortable should have the right to just say, ‘Hey, I was uncomfortable with that,’ or hopefully we get to the point even before they have to say I'm uncomfortable, no matter what. And I really do understand it. So -- but it's -- you know, one of the things that -- like, for example, what made me say it, I wasn't joking. The president of the union put his arms around me. Well, that's how it's always been. I’ve been coming here a long time. That's how people react.”

Reporter: “Do you think you owe those women a direct apology, who have come forward, so far?”

Biden: “Oh, well, look, the fact of the matter is, I’ve made it clear that, if I made anyone feel uncomfortable, I feel badly about that. That was never my intention. Ever. Ever. Ever.”

Reporter: “But, if there's someone who wants to hear directly, ‘I am sorry.’ Are you sorry?”

Biden: “I'm sorry I didn't understand more. I'm not sorry for any of my intentions. I'm not sorry for anything that I have ever done. I've never been disrespectful, intentionally, to a man or a woman. That's not the reputation I've had since high school, for God's sake.”
