Musical legend Cher went on social media this week to share her “experience” with former Vice President Joe Biden, who, she says, gave her a hug during a meeting between the pair.
Her tweeted conclusion? She wrote Thursday that although she was “fine” with the interaction, Biden should be more aware of women’s personal space.
“Once spent time talking 2 Joe Biden In His Office.I asked Point-ed Questions. As Time Passed I Found Him Forthright, Kind,& Smart,” her tweet read.
Cher added that once their meeting ended, Biden walked her to the door and gave her a hug.
“I Was Fine With It, But That,Was’MY’Experience.HE MUST COMMIT 2 B’AWARE,& CARE’ ABOUT WOMENS SPACE”

Biden has hinted at a likely run for president but has yet to make an official announcement,
