Throughout the week, political cartoonists shared their take on the Biden controversy, Obamacare repeal, Mexico border closing, and more.

Former vice president Joe Biden is at the center of a controversy this week. A former Nevada legislator, Lucy Flores, said Biden made her uncomfortable when, at a rally in 2014, he came up behind her, touched her shoulders and kissed the back of her head.

Biden is expected to make a 2020 campaign bid announcement, and some are wondering what effect these stories will have. Some say that Biden is known for his "affectionate" nature and that these touching stories are a far cry from sexual harassment or assault, and should not have an impact on his potential candidacy.

Responding to the stories, Biden said he would be more respectful of personal space.

President Trump's threats to close the border wall sparked debate this week about what the consequences of such an action would be.

Trump backed off his threat and traveled to the border Friday to inspect sections of a border wall.

Among popular stories was the statistic that, should the border close, America would run out of avocados in just three weeks.

The Affordable Care Act has also been a topic of debate this week.

Nobody is sure what the Republicans have in store to replace Obamacare, but Trump has promised to double down on the issue.
