Joe Biden Calls Donald Trump’s Comments on the 2005 Tape the ‘Definition of Sexual Assault’
The Vice President of the United States Joe Biden visited Seth Meyers’ talk show on Wednesday (Oct. 13, 2016) to discuss this surreal election cycle and, as you can probably guess, the conversation quickly turned to Donald Trump.
“You were one of the first people to point out that it was not ‘locker room language’ in fact, but it was the language of sexual assault,” Meyers said when referencing the Access Hollywood video that send the Trump candidacy into chaos. “What did you find you more stunning, the use of the language or that fact that there are still people who are defending it for not being what you called it out as?“
“First of all, what I found astounding is that he would so publicly — no matter who he was talking to — that he would acknowledge that he engaged in the textbook definition of sexual assault,” Biden responded.
As we previously reportedly, on Friday (Oct. 7, 2016) a 2005 clip was released in which Trump openly brags about sexually assaulting women with TV personality Billy Bush.
“I mean, this is absolutely outrageous behavior,” Biden continued. “I’ve spent most of my career trying to figure out how to change the culture in this country so that we treat women with respect and with dignity.”
The downward spiral continues for the Trump campaign. Several women have come forward claiming the Republican presidential candidate did in fact grope or kiss them without consent on numerous occasions.
