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.”

Walking out of his house for the first time on Tuesday morning, Robert Batie found his house vandalized by racist slurs.

#BabyGate trends as Trump’s White House border fence gets a hilarious new nickname
President Donald Trump has now overseen the construction of a perimeter fence around the White House that is nearly two miles in length -- and it's already getting mocked relentlessly on social media.
As construction of the perimeter fence continued on Friday, many Twitter users said it reminded them of a baby gate that new parents use to keep their infants from crawling into potentially dangerous areas.
"Aww isn’t this cute!" Twitter user @H0telr0meo wrote in one widely shared tweet. "Little #BunkerBoy now has his own #BabyGate."
Minneapolis City Council taking first steps to ‘dismantle’ police department
"We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response," said council member Jeremiah Ellison. "It's really past due."
Aiming to "dismantle" the Minneapolis Police Department, city councilors on Friday will vote on imposing a temporary restraining order for the city's police department in response to the killing of George Floyd last month, and plan to set a timeline for the state's investigation into racial discrimination by the police over the past decade.
