Fox News host Tucker Carlson issued a surprise apology to former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday for having made an inadequate distinction between sexual assault and Biden’s frequent touching and “Eskimo kisses.”

“We want to begin tonight’s show with an apology,” Carlson began. “Apologies are not something you often hear on cable news, on this or any other show. But we are offering one anyway. There is no lawsuit forcing us to do it and no court order making us, or skittish advertisers. We’re sincere in this, we mean it. It has to do with Joe Biden.” Carlson then described the multiple statements women have made alleging that Biden made them feel physically uncomfortable.
