Joe Biden on Trump: I'd Have 'Beat the Hell Out of Him' In School Over 'Grab 'Em by the Pussy' Comments

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he would have "beat the hell" out of President Donald Trump for his infamous comments about grabbing women anytime he pleased if the pair had been in high school.

Biden, a prospective 2020 Democratic candidate for the White House, was speaking at a rally against sexual assault at the University of Miami. He added that anyone who spoke like Trump did on the infamous Access Hollywood tape, which the president later dismissed as "locker room talk," would be considered the "fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room," ABC News reported.

"A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, 'I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'" Biden 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.'"

Biden added: "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."

The former Delaware senator has often chided Trump for his work in office. As recently as Saturday, Biden claimed Trump "dumbs down" the country's values in reference to his apparent mockery of a disabled reporter while making an appearance in North Dakota during his 2016 campaign.

Biden then spoke about the national #MeToo movement aimed at encouraging women to speak out and up against sexual assault.

He said women should educate themselves on how to handle and report assault or harassment.

"It's not just on the men. It's on you women, as well, on campus," Biden said. "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."
