Former Vice President Joe Biden took a shot at President Donald Trump on Tuesday while speaking to University of Miami students at a rally against sexual assault and gender-based violence, according to USA Today.
What did he say?
Biden brought up the comments Trump was heard making in a 2005 “Access Hollywood" video about groping women.
Biden talked about how he would've handled someone like Trump:

“I've been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I'm a pretty damn good athlete," Biden continued. "Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."
Biden also spoke out against sexual misconduct within fraternity culture: “Guys, any man on campus who sees a fraternity brother taking a drunken coed up the stairs and doesn't walk up and say, 'Not in my house,' is a damn coward. Flat, simple coward. Coward!"

Biden's pointed attacks on Trump could preview what will be said during the 2020 election cycle, which some reports say Biden is preparing for.
Biden has, to this point, downplayed rumors that he plans to run. He considered a 2016 run before ultimately deciding against it.
