Lucy Flores, the former Nevada Democrat lawmaker who first accused former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriate touching, criticized the potential 2020 Democrat candidate for making light of the allegations against him on Friday.

“It’s clear @JoeBiden hasn’t reflected at all on how his inappropriate and unsolicited touching made women feel uncomfortable. To make light of something as serious as consent degrades the conversation women everywhere are courageously trying to have,” Flores wrote on social media.

Earlier Friday, Biden spoke before the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Washington, D.C., his first public appearance since seven women came forward with #MeToo allegations against the 76-year-old.
