Biden on Trump's Billy Bush Tape: I'd 'Beat the Hell Out of Him' If We Were in School
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that instead of debating President Donald Trump about sexual assault, he would have taken him "behind the gym and beat the hell out of him" if the two were in high school together.
Biden’s comments came at the "It’s On Us" rally at the University of Miami, one that focused on stopping sexual assault on college campuses.
The Scranton, Pa. native cited Trump’s vulgar comments regarding grabbing women by their genitals, which surfaced in a video of the businessman and TV host Billy Bush during the 2016 election.
"I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life and a pretty damn good athlete," Biden went on to say. "Any guy who talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."
The university later thanked Biden on Twitter and said the rally reminded them that "we are responsible for creating an environment where sexual assault and gender-based violence is unacceptable."
President Trump fired back at Biden Thursday morning, calling him "Crazy Joe Biden" and saying the former VP would "go down fast and hard."
Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!
