“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Joe Biden said at this week’s event at the University of Miami, part of the nationwide anti-assault campaign “It’s On Us,”
“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.'”
The former vice president specifically highlighted Trump’s defense of his on-tape remarks as merely “locker room talk.”
“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden said. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy who talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
Both comments from the former vice president drew applause from students in the room.
“Guys, any man on campus who sees a fraternity brother taking a drunken co-ed up the stairs and doesn’t walk up and say, ‘Not in my house’ is a damn coward,” he said. “Flat, simple coward. Coward!”
The University of Miami later thanked Biden for speaking at the rally and “or bringing us your legacy of ending violence against women and empowering our students to take action.”
