Dr. Jill Biden Delivers a Rare Trump Jab, as Joe Says GOP Nominee Engaged in ‘Textbook’ Sexual Assault

Posted on

Don’t call Dr. Jill Biden “Second Lady.”

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, and the professor revealed that she prefers the unofficial nickname “captain of the vice squad”over being called “Second Lady.”

But it turns out Biden has some alternate titles for his wife.

“None that I can say,” Joe, 73, joked. “They’re all endearing.”

Jill chimed in: “He’s not [Donald] Trump.”

The Trump jab was a bit unusual for Jill, 65, who rarely steps into the political fray.

The Vice President, however, continued his rebuke of the GOP nominee as he spoke with Meyers, addressing the 2005 hot mic video that has placed Trump under fire in recent days.

“What I found astounding is that he would so publicly — no matter who he was taking to —  that he would acknowledge that he engaged in the textbook definition of sexual assault,” Joe said of the presidential hopeful. “This is absolutely outrageous behavior.”

Trump has come under fire since the emergence of the tape, which reveals the now 70-year-old making lewd comments about groping and trying to have sex with women.

Trump dismissed his comments as “locker room talk” and released a video-taped apology, although he has repeatedly denied that he has ever made any unwanted sexual advances toward women.

“Here’s a guy who says, ‘I’m a star … so I can go in and intimidate women into allowing me to assault them and assume they’re not going to say anything,’ ” Joe said. “That is the ultimate abuse of power. And I don’t understand how anyone can remotely justify that.”

In the wake of the tape’s release, Trump has faced assault accusations from several women claiming the presidential nominee touched them inappropriately without their permission. The New York Times reported two of the claims, and Trump has since called for the publication to retract the report. A former PEOPLE reporter has also shared her story of being physically attacked by Trump, an allegation Trump has also vehemently denied.
