Trump takes to Twitter to bully Joe Biden after the former vice president spoke out against Trump for disrespecting women.
Trump took to his Twitter account first thing Thursday morning (6:19 a.m. to be exact) to bully Joe Biden.
“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!” he tweeted.
Trump was responding to a speech given by Biden at a Tuesday night anti-rally for his ‘It’s On Us’ advocacy group that aims to combat sexual assault on college campuses.
Biden spoke out against Trump during the speech for his well-documented pattern or disrespecting women.
Referencing the infamous Access Hollywood recording in which “Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation,” Biden told the audience:
“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it.'”
Continuing, he added: “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. I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
Joe Biden called out Trump in similar fashion in 2016
CNN pointed out that this wasn’t the first time Biden had made such remarks about Trump, reporting that: “The former vice president has made similar remarks before about Trump during the 2016 election.”
Speaking at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania for Hillary Clinton, Biden made it crystal clear how much he disliked Trump, saying that he would like to travel back in time to his high school days and “take him behind the gym.”
Like this week, Biden was speaking out about the now infamous Access Hollywood recordings.
USA Today covered that speech reporting on Biden’s remarks:
“What he said he did and does is the textbook definition of sexual assault,” Biden said. “And think about this: It’s more than that. He said that, ‘Because I’m famous, because I’m a star, because I’m a billionaire, I can do things other people can’t.’ What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make.”
An animated Biden then says, “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.”
Trump hit back at Biden earlier this year
Reminding readers of Biden’s 2016 remarks, CNN reported on Wednesday that Trump responded to those remarks earlier this year as the war of words between the two men rages onwards.
Speaking at this year’s Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington, Trump took a shot at Biden over the remark, taunting him about rumors that he might run for president in 2020.
“You know when he said, ‘I’m going to take you behind the barn’? Oh, just trust me, I would kick his ass. He’d be easy.” Trump said, adding: “But, Joe, gimme a break. A guy who keeps making outrageous statements thinks he has a shot of being president?”
