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.”

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
