Comedian Chelsey Handler defended former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.

"I have to know what you think of Joe Biden and that whole thing," Maher said.

"I think Joe Biden is just a grandfather, you know what I mean? And he's old," Handler replied.

"I don't like comparing -- I don't like these stories of these women coming out and talking about a man smelling their hair or kissing the back of their head," she continued.

"I think it diminishes people who have actually experienced bullsh*t," Hander said.

"That's what I was trying to say over there," Maher said, referring to his opening monologue.

The segment then unexpectedly turned to the question of whether former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was a "sexual predator."
