Joe Biden is making the rounds on a tour to talk about preventing campus sexual assault and he drew cheers and laughter when he turned his attention to the current occupant of the White House and his recorded comments bragging about sexually assaulting women. Biden didn’t pull any punches in the speech, but he again reiterated that he’d have thrown some punches back in the day. From USA Today:
“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden said, referencing Trump’s bragging about sexual assault in a 2005 recording. “They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'”
Biden made that remark in 2016 ahead of the presidential election. But at this week’s event at the University of Miami, part of the nationwide anti-assault campaign “It’s On Us,” the former VP specifically highlighted Trump’s defense of his on-tape remarks as merely “locker room talk.”
“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden said. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy who talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
My money would be on Joe in that after schoolyard fight. After all, he’s still training.
