In a display which proves that when Michelle Obama may go high, V.P. Biden isn’t quite as gracious, the Vice President told reporters on Friday afternoon that he didn’t want to debate Trump, he wants to cream him.

NBC Nightly News writer and editor Bradd Jaffy reported the shocking quote from Biden on Friday afternoon when he shared some private thoughts he had about the Republican nominee.


Said Biden:

“…don’t I wish I were debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym.”

Of course, calls for violence are never good form, but Biden’s particular brand of old-school charm makes the comment almost acceptable.

And you know what they always say, “When they go low, we go behind the gym!”
