Former Vice President Joe Biden has been making headlines lately for all of the wrong reasons. Since announcing that he’s running for the 2020 Democratic nomination, Biden has praised racist Democratic Senators who supported segregation, several women have alleged the former VP touched them inappropriately without their consent, and he has been accused of plagiarism on two separate occasions.
In an apparent sign of weakness and desperation, Biden is now threatening President Donald Trump with physical violence.
During an interview that aired last Friday with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Biden compared Trump to a bully and said he wanted to “smack” him in the mouth.
“Sure it worries me, in the sense that I’m looking forward to this, man. You walk behind me in a debate, come here, man. Don’t you think — you know me too well. The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump? He’s the bully that I knew my whole life,” Biden stated.
“He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack them in the mouth,” the former vice president added.
Biden continued, “But I think the American people want a president who has some dignity, who has a value set, who is actually trying to restore the soul of this country so when they turn on the television they look up and their kids say, ‘I want to be like that guy or that woman.’”
Joe Biden says he's looking forward to a chance to "slap @realDonaldTrump in the mouth" during a presidential debate.

Nice going, Joe. Threatening the president of the United States is a felony.
But more importantly, this is not the first time Biden has threatened physical violence against Trump.
In March 2018, Biden said that if someone made comments similar to the ones that Trump made in the Access Hollywood tape, he would “beat the hell out of him” if they were in high school.
Trump responded on Twitter by calling out Biden for “trying to act like a tough guy,” and added that the former VP “is weak, both mentally and physically.”
Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!

In October 2016, Biden threatened to take then-candidate Trump behind the gym and rough him up.
NBC News reported:
Biden said it was “a disgusting assertion for Trump to make” in the lewd tape that he could “do things” to women that other people couldn’t just because he is “a billionaire.” The vice president has called it “a textbook version of sexual assault” and critiqued Trump’s abuse of power publicly.
“The press always asks me, don’t I wish I were debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden said at Wilkes University in P.A.
When he’s not suggesting a “shooting war” with the GOP or threatening Trump with violence, Biden has been accused by at least four women in recent months of inappropriately touching them without their consent.
Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill both recalled their experiences with Biden touching them inappropriately and making them feel uncomfortable.
Caruso said Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she tried to squirm in her seat to signal that she was uncomfortable.
Hill recalled an incident with Biden in 2012, claiming that the then-vice president placed his hand on her shoulder and began to run it down her back, which she said made her “very uncomfortable.”
Former Nevada state lawmaker Lucy Flores published a column and accused Biden of grabbing her shoulders, smelling her hair, and kissing her head without consent at a 2014 campaign event.
Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide to Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, claimed that during a fundraising event in 2009, Biden grabbed her head and pulled her in close to rub noses.
Biden’s behavior is so bad that even the mainstream media criticized him after he disgustingly had his hands all over a 10-year-old girl during a campaign stop.
Despite all of this, Biden is still the Democratic frontrunner and darling of the Left.
