In an interview recorded Thursday, but broadcast on Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden shared his disgust with NBC host Chuck Todd over GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump boasting that he sexually assaults women.
Speaking on Meet The Press, Biden got right to the point by calling Trump’s assertion that he grabs unsuspecting women by their genitals a “textbook definition of sexual assault.”
After being asked why Trump “shouldn’t get the benefit of the doubt” as to whether he has sexually assaulted women, Biden said Trump’s own words speak for themselves.
“His own words, I don’t even have to go to the accusers,” Biden explained. “When a man says what he said, that is a textbook definition of sexual assault. I mean, it’s a textbook definition. But what makes it believable that he engaged in that kind of activity, it’s not that just that he said it, but sort of his instinctive abuse of power.”
“He acts like that in private sector and he acts in the way he treats employees,” he continued. “You know, ‘I live in the penthouse. I’m a billionaire, I’m a star and I can do what I want.’ That’s the most disturbing piece! You know, my father used to say, ‘The greatest abuse is the abuse of power.’ Economic power, political power, physical power. And this is not a guy who should be representing the United States in anyway.”
