Conway also called Flores “bold” for coming forward with the accusation.
“It’s quite bold for her to go up against the highest levels of her own political party,” Conway said.

Flores said in an essay published Friday in New York Magazine’s The Cut that Biden touched her shoulders and kissed the back of her head before a Nevada campaign event in 2014.
“As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?'” she wrote.
“I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, ‘I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?’ He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head,” she added.
Biden said in a statement Sunday that he has “offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort” while on the campaign trail and in public life.

“And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately,” Biden added. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.”
