On Friday Joe Biden once again threatened physical violence against President Trump saying something about smacking him in the mouth.
The former vice president lashed out at President Trump and suggested he had dirt on his opponents which he claimed he didn’t want to have to use in the race for the White House.

The 76-year-old former senator seemed to be a far cry from his “Uncle Joe” or “Sleepy Joe” personas during his wide-ranging CNN interview while in Des Moines, Iowa, asserting to host Chris Cuomo that he was not intimated by Trump.
“Sure it worries me, in the sense that I’m looking forward to this, man,” he said, holding up his fists.
“You walk behind me in a debate, come here man,” he added, apparently referring a 2016 televised debate when Trump lurked behind his then-Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
“Don’t you think — you know me too well. The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump?” Biden continued.
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. 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 Democratic front-runner ranted.
“But I think the American people want a president who has some dignity,” he added, apparently missing the irony, “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.’”
Noting that Trump “knows how to fight in the ring one-on-one,” Cuomo asked the Democrat if he was confident that he could “take on the biggest and the baddest” in the president.
Responding that he had “never been accused of not being able to spar,” Biden cited his record under former President Barack Obama’s administration.
“I’ve been accused of being too aggressive,” he said.
He claimed he could defeat Trump in 2020 “by just pointing out who I am and who he is and what we’re for and he’s against.”
“This guy is a divider-in-chief. This guy is acting with racist policies. This guy is moving to foment hate, to split. That’s the only way he can sustain himself,” he said.
Trump responded to Biden’s insult on Friday, telling reporters at the White House that he is cleaning up the “mess” that Biden and Obama created.
“I don’t think I’m a bully. I just don’t like being taken advantage of by other countries, by pharmaceutical companies, by all of the people that have taken advantage of this country,” Trump said.
“You look at what Joe Biden has done with China. We’ve lost our shirts with China and now China is dying to make a deal,” he added. “So if you look at what we’ve done and if you look at what we’ve straightened out, I call it the Obama/Biden mess. We’re straightening it out.”
