Former Vice President Joe Biden can’t even handle California Senator Kamala Harris during a debate, yet he’s looking forward to taking on President Trump.
In a CNN exclusive interview with the candidate, Biden issued some fighting words, equating President Trump with the “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 him in the mouth”
Joe Biden says he's looking forward to a chance to "slap @realDonaldTrump in the mouth" during a presidential debate.

He went on to say, “You walk behind me in a debate, come here, man. You know me too well. The idea I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump? He’s the bully that I knew my whole life.”
Former Obama supports weren’t thrilled with those comments, including the VP of Communications for Emily’s List.
Count me as a voter who would prefer someone who handles a menacing bully calmly while continuing to make her point over someone who announces he will pop him in the mouth.

In the same interview, Biden also says the American people are looking for a President who has dignity and values. Yet he semi-threatens to play dirty with fellow Democrats, saying he has lots of dirt on his rivals.
“I mean, I get all this information about other people’s pasts, and what they’ve done and not done. And you know, I’m just not going to go there. If we keep doing that — I mean, we should be debating what we do from here,” Biden said.
Hmm, all those comments don’t really sound like something with dignity and values to me.
