People talk a great deal about President Donald Trump’s ego and pride. However, former Vice President Joe Biden recently bragged about what a great athlete he was in high school, and then added that he probably would’ve “beaten the hell” out of a teenage Donald Trump, had he known him.
The comments happened at an anti-sexual assault rally at the University of Miami. “A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” he said. “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. I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden continued. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
ABC News has the details:
Biden made the comments Tuesday afternoon at the university’s “It’s on Us” rally, an event aiming to change on-campus culture surrounding sexual assault.
The 47th vice president also commended the country on progress it’s made in battling sexual assault, mentioning the success of the #MeToo movement, but he also said there was still a lot of work to be done.“Sexual assault is about power and the abuse of power more than it is about sex,” he said, before going on to tell women in the audience that they should arm themselves with more resources.
Biden also said women need to take responsibility for the #MeToo crisis. “It’s not just on the men. It’s on you women, as well, on campus. All the studies show that 95 percent of young women who are abused — the first person they tell is their roommate, their friend, someone on campus. You’ve got to inform yourself as to what facilities are available, what help is available, not just empathize, hug and say, ‘I’m so sorry.’ You have an obligation to be informed.”
The President has not responded to Biden’s taunts… so far.
