Joe Biden jokes about inappropriate touching during a speech

Barack and Michelle Obama Silent on 'Creepy' Joe Biden Accusations

Former Vice President Joe Biden joked twice about having permission to touch people on Friday during his first public appearance since several women alleged he made them uncomfortable in encounters over the years.

"By the way, he gave me permission to hug him", Biden said. Just browse Biden memes on Twitter and you'll find several shots of him these past several years cozying a little too close to Obama administration officials' wives, Congress members' daughters, etc.

Later, during the same speech before the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Biden invited a group of children onstage, shaking their hands and putting his arm around one boy.

And Biden conceded, "I think it's going to have to change how I campaign".

Biden on Friday said that he was not sorry for his habit of stroking and kissing women in professional settings.

Biden attempted to tamp down the controversy with a video in which he vowed to be "more mindful about respecting personal space in the future".

These allegations loom over Biden's possible run for president in 2020, but some political observers are defending the ex-veep by noting his affectionate nature and questioning the seriousness of the accusations against him.

Whether they're women, men, young, old, it's the way I've always been and the way I've tried to show I care about them and I'm listening.

The first woman to make allegations against Biden, former Nevada assemblywoman Lucy Flores, tweeted on Friday afternoon that Biden's jokes at the IBEW event prove that he "hasn't reflected".

Other women have shared similar accounts.

Biden hit back, tweeting: "I see that you are on the job and presidential".

Donald Trump, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 17 women, has sought to weaponize the issue.

"I think I'm a very good messenger, and people got a kick out of it", said President Trump.
