Vice President Joe Biden says that he would love to be a teenager again so he could kick the sh*t out of Donald Trump over his disgusting brags of being able to sexually assault women thanks to his celebrity status.
On Friday, Biden was campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania. The vice president was asked about the comments Trump made in 2005 in which he boasted that he could just start kissing women without their consent and even “grab ’em by the pussy” because he is “a star.” He was then asked if he would like to have the chance to debate the GOP nominee himself. Biden’s response was fabulous.
The things he said, and did, and does, is a textbook definition of sexual assault. Think about this,” he said as the crowd continued to applaud. “But it’s more than that.”
“He said, ‘Because I’m a billionaire I can do things other people can’t.’ What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make,” Biden said.The press always ask me, don’t I wish I was debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”
The vice president has repeatedly condemned Trump’s appalling comments that were caught on tape more than a decade ago as “the textbook definition of sexual assault” and has been a strong advocate for victims of sexual assault. He pointed out last week that he has “spent most of my career trying to figure out how to begin to change the culture in this country – that we treat women with respect and with dignity.” He also denounced Trump and his treatment of women on Twitter.
The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault. –Joe

Biden went after Trump when he suggested that veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder are weak and just “not able to handle” the horrors of war. “Where in the hell is he from?” Biden said during an angry tirade at a rally earlier this month. He noted that we have a “sacred obligation” to our veterans and slammed the GOP nominee for his remarks.
“What are the chances Trump honors commitment to those who are wounded?” Biden asked. “It’s not just that he doesn’t get it. He doesn’t want to find out.”
The vice president has also denounced Trump as a “threat to our democratic process.” In September , he pointed out that “[Trump] was born with a silver spoon in his mouth that he’s now choking on because his foot’s in his mouth along with the spoon.”
