You have no way of knowing this. Consent for non-sexual touching like hugs is usually not verbal, especially between friends and family. You have no way to know if these are friends/family of Biden and/or if they consented to these instances of touch.

Further, you've provided no indication that these women and girls gave their consent for images of them being touched to be used in this way.

So, in your view, do men need to explicitly ask for consent before touching a woman?
It depends on the circumstances. Human inter-personal relations can be complicated.
