Biden said he would 'beat hell' out of Trump for disrespecting women

Posted: Updated:

Former Vice President Joe Biden says he would "beat the hell" out of President Donald Trump if they were in high school together and Trump disrespected women.

The Democrat spoke Tuesday 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,'" Biden said. "If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him."

Biden said any guy who disrespected women was "usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."

The president responded to Biden’s comments on Twitter Thursday.

“Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy….He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way,” the president tweeted.

Biden was attending the “It's on Us" rally at the University of Miami. The rally sought to change on-campus culture surrounding sexual assault.
