Former Vice President Joe Biden clarified his remarks about taking President Donald Trump "behind the gym" and beating him up over remarks the New Yorker made about women.
Biden was being interviewed on the "Pod Save America" podcast, hosted by several former Obama administration officials, including senior adviser Daniel Pfeiffer and National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor.
The hosts asked what Biden wanted to call his threatened scrum with Trump, offering up ideas like "The MAGA Saga" and "Scranton Squabble."
Though he represented Delaware in Congress, Biden is a native of the Pennsylvania city.
"I shouldn't have said what I said," Biden told the hosts. "I don't want to get down in the mosh pit with this guy."
He stressed the fact he said "if we were in high school" when referencing a fight with the president.
Biden reiterated that engaging in a physical duel with Trump is not what he meant -- and that he was instead objecting to the president's coarse vocabulary.
"I find the behavior and the talk vulgar," he said of comments Trump made on a 2006 tape in which he referenced grabbing women's genitals.
"Women are entitled to be treated with respect, d*** it," Biden said.
