Joe Biden Weighs In on Anthony Weiner: ‘I’m Not a Big Fan’

Joe Biden said he shouldn’t comment on disgraced politican Anthony Weiner, but he certainly did.

The vice president sat down with Michael Smerconish and talked about Hillary Clinton’s latest email scandal — and shared his not-so-loving attitude toward Weiner.

“I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that if she had released all the emails from the get-go we wouldn’t be having this conversation,” Smerconish told Biden on his CNN show on Saturday.

Biden agreed, and replied, “Well, that’s true. But I don’t know where these emails came from.”

Smerconish responded, “Apparently Anthony Weiner,” referring to the The New York Times report that said the FBI seized electronic devices belonging to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, Weiner. The former New York representative is being investigated after allegedly sending illicit text messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

“Oh, God. Anthony Weiner,” Biden said. “I should not comment on Anthony Weiner. I’m not a big fan. And I wasn’t before he got in trouble, so I shouldn’t comment on Anthony Weiner.”

This is the latest scandal surrounding Weiner, who was also caught sexting in both 2011 and 2013. For more information on his sexting saga, check out this timeline.

And while Biden ruled out the prospect of becoming Hillary Clinton‘s future Secretary of State, he recently provided some other candid commentary on Clinton’s opponent, Republican candidate Donald Trump.

The vice president criticized the business mogul’s 2005 comments about groping women at a campaign event for Clinton last Friday in Pennsylvania, and said that reporters often ask him whether he wishes he could debate Trump. Biden said, “No, I wish we were in high school. I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”

Biden later walked back the comments, clarifying, “If I were in high school … I want to make it clear I understand what assault is. I’m not in high school. If I were in high school.”
