In an interview with PBS host Judy Woodruff, former Vice President Joe Biden talked about how he could beat up former DNC chairman Howard Dean. This isn’t the first time he has said something like this. During the 2016 election he claimed he would “could take [Donald Trump] behind the gym.”
Woodruff asked Biden about the possibility of him running for President in 2020, and questioned his age. She quoted Howard Dean. “I’m very much for somebody who’s younger. I think my generation has got to get the hell out of politics. Start coaching and start moving up this next generation who I think are more fiscally sane,” said Dean.
She started by asking him if age will be a factor. “Sure … It’s a totally legitimate factor,” said Biden.
“Howard Dean said this morning … the old people in the party need to, quote, get the hell out of the way,” said Woodruff.
“Well, tell Howard I can take him physically, OK?” Biden laughed. Of course, if Trump said something like this it would be in the news for days.
“Look, it would be a totally legitimate thing for people to say, ‘Let’s look at Biden. He would be the oldest guy to ever be president. See what kind of shape he’s in. Mentally, physically and the rest.’ And it may be that I’ve developed some problem, and I’m not capable of doing that,” said Biden. Check out the video below.
