Whoa! Joe Biden just blew us away with the way he came at Donald Trump on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ for comments he made about sexually assaulting women. Click here to see Joe’s explanation of why what the Republican presidential nominee did was the ‘ultimate abuse of power.’
Vice President Joe Biden, 73, totally came at Donald Trump, 70, when he made his appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Oct. 12, and we could not have been more amazed by the excellent points he made about what Donald said on the extremely disturbing hot mic tape that was recently leaked. Joe made it clear that the Republican presidential nominee’s comments about how he could grope women because of his celebrity status was a display of the “ultimate abuse of power.”
“First of all, what I found astounding is that [Donald] would so publicly, even though, no matter who he was talking to, that he would acknowledge that he engaged in the textbook definition of sexual assault,” the vice president, and author of the Violence Against Women Act, said to Seth Meyers. “He didn’t say you know, ‘I go up and I ask. He said ‘I go up and I grab, and can I do this.’ And then I see in the paper today one of the pageants that he, I guess Miss Teen America. And the teen girls, there were three, four, five in the room, they were getting dressed, they were naked. He walked in and said, ‘Don’t worry girls, I’ve seen all this,’ and he stood there. I mean this is absolutely outrageous behavior.” Preach, Joe!
“I’ve spent most of my career trying to figure out how to begin to change the culture in this country so that we treat women with respect and with dignity,” Joe continued. “I really mean it. I know that I get fairly passionate about this issue. Everybody asks why do I feel so strongly about this? Why did I write the act? Was it my mother? My sister? And thank God they weren’t victimized. But my dad used to say the greatest sin of all is the abuse of power. And the cardinal sin of all is a man raising his hand, or taking advantage of a woman.” AMEN, Joe.
“And here’s a guy who says, ‘I’m a star.’ Talk about power. ‘I’m a billionaire. I’m a star. I’m a celebrity, so I can go in and intimidate women into allowing me to assault them and assume they’re not going to say anything.’ That is the ultimate abuse of power. And I don’t understand how anyone can remotely justify that,” Joe said. Then he started a sentence with, “I can understand,” but paused and shook his head and lowered it saying, “No, I can’t understand.” Neither can we, Joe. Neither can we.
