When told it's about his inappropriate physical contact with women, he added: "You guys know that I'm a tactile politician". But the last thing I ever want to do is offend anyone. That's my responsibility, I think.

Satisfied that he's improved Sudeikis' Biden officially throws his hat in the 2020 ring.

The door opens and Biden bursts through, going straight to the man and woman and hugging them.

Addressing what some fans might consider the most important thing this week, stars of HBO's "Game of Thrones" appeared during host Kit Harington's monologue asking for spoilers on series' highly anticipated finale. "A lot of my scenes are talking to a dragon which is just a tennis ball on a green pole, so I have no idea what's actually happening".

In the hopes of reining in his behavior, the advisers bring in a sensitivity trainer named Gwen - played by Kate McKinnon. Biden cited a recent genealogy test that prompted him to crow, "Turns out I'm 100% Eskimo, so I'm allowed to touch noses". "Biden and some woman, 2020!"

Gwen ushers in a few democratic voters who are on the fence about their primary choices. When the first woman enters, Biden, unsure of what to do, cradles her face.

Of course, because an "SNL" sketch mocking a Democrat wouldn't be complete without a counterpunch to Trump, Biden and company bring up the president's "Access Hollywood" tape.

James Andrews will operate on the athlete on Monday for injuries that include multiple torn ligaments in both knees. He tweeted that he had "no doubt she will overcome this injury and go on to do incredible things".

"I'm a hugger, I'm a kisser and I'm a little bit of a sniffer", said Sudeikis' Biden, with a perpetual grin.

ADVISOR: Yes, but unlike his voters, your voters actually care.

McKinnon tasks Biden with introducing himself in a respectful manner to two female voters.

"Who would you do that with?" asks the consultant. "Oh my god! You Obama's granddaddy!"

After he seems to fail the lesson miserably, he promises, "I hear you and I feel you, I feel you".

The sketch ends with Biden, saying: "Let's hug it out, America!" "Then a pro-Trump group said Biden's behavior is unacceptable, and should instantly disqualify him. That's not the reputation I've had since I was in high school, for God's sake".
