Former Vice President Joe Biden couldn’t seem to help himself from making jokes about the allegations of inappropriate touching that several women have made while speaking at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) conference on Friday.

Biden started his speech off by joking that IBEW President Lonnie Stephenson had given Biden permission to pat his shoulder before taking the stage.

Then, several minutes later in his speech, Biden called up to the stage several young children who were in the crowd.

“All those kids, you want to come up on the stage? You can come up, it’s okay,” Biden said.

Biden than shook each of the children’s hands before putting an arm around the nearest boy.

“He gave me permission to touch him,” Biden told the crowd to laughter.

Notably, Biden did not appear to actually ask the child’s permission nor did the boy grant it during his exchange on stage with the former vice president.
