Vice President Joe Biden cleared up remarks he made last week saying he wished he could take Donald Trump “behind the gym,” clarifying on Monday that he would only do so if he were still in high school. Trump is a child, after all, and Biden made those remarks because he was outraged over Donald’s remarks about women.
On Tuesday, Donald’s feelings must have been hurt because he said he’d “love” to fight Biden. Welcome to politics in 2016. Any takers on who would win the fight? My money is on Joe.
“I’d love that. I’d love that. Mr. Tough Guy. You know, he’s Mr. Tough Guy. You know when he’s Mr. Tough Guy? When he’s standing behind a microphone by himself,” Trump said, according to CNN.
“Some things in life you could really love doing,” Trump added.
Biden’s comments followed the revelations of the leaked video showing Donald bragging in 1995 about being able to sexually assault women. So in turn, Biden said he wished – note that it was not a threat – that he could take Trump “behind the gym.” And hey, I wouldn’t mind smacking the snot out of Trump either but that’s a wish, not a threat.
Biden called Trump’s rapey comments “the textbook definition of sexual assault.”
“The press always ask me, ‘Don’t I wish I were debating him?’ No, I wish we were in high school — I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden said.
Biden penned a scathing letter to Brock Turner’s victim earlier this year. “I am filled with furious anger,” he wrote, “both that this happened to you and that our culture is still so broken.”
Turner was sentenced to six months in jail. Biden is an advocate for victims of sexual assault. He’s our vice president, trying to stop a predator from getting the keys to the White House. Meanwhile, Donald Trump wants to fight him.
